An easy fix would be to go tothe Junk Yard and pull off the parts you need order to do this though I would advise getting a Haynes Manual (VERY VERY HELPFUL BOOK) for your car...Available at your local Auto parts Store (even if you dont do it yourself you should still get the can save you a lot of time and money when it comes to knowing and working on your vehicle)

All full size 1999-2008 GM trucks & SUVs have or will have this problem. A redesigned Intermediate Steering Shaft was released in 2008. It is the permanent fix. If you are in warranty, squawk to your dealer. If not, the part is easy to replace.

I used the after-market Dorman 425-176 part. It sells for about $50 if you are a good shopper. Instructions are in the box. Only 2 bolts need to be removed.

1) Park your truck straight and level. Set the parking brake.

2) Bungee the steering wheel so it will not turn.

3) Disconnect the battery and wait 15 minutes for the air bag system to discharge.

4) Remove the 2 bolts, one in the engine compartment, one under the dash. Wiggle the old part up and out and the new one in.

5) Replace the bolts.

6) Connect the battery, Remove the bungee before driving.

Being a stiff and fat old man, this took me 2 hours with rest breaks. Next time I could do it in 1 hour. Young and slender might finsh the task in 30 minutes.

Good luck.

These codes are for the evaporative emission system.The 455 is the vent solenoid.The 455 is a large leak in the evap.system.The vent solenoid I would replace because they go bad and will not work because they are under the vehicle in the rear of the truck.There is a bulletin for these and the vent valve is installed in another spot.The number for the bulletin is 02-06-04-037E.You should also look for a broken or loose hose or pipe that might have came off.Specially if you ran over something.If none found it could just be the vent solenoid stuck in the venting position.Good luck.

The linkage came loose from the shifter to the transmission, I suspect. That should be an easy, or cheap fix.

I habve a 2006 chevy silverado z71 and I need to replace the reverse light switch. Where is it located? Thank you.

I am guessing an automatic transmission? If so, the reverse lights are incorporated into the neutral safety switch on the side of the transmission with the shift linkage

I have a 1995 chevy silverado with a leak coming from the front of the transmission, any thoughts and how much i may have to pay..i already changed the pan gasket

It sounds like the transmission front pump seal, if thats the case the trans. has to be pulled out to replace the seal.It will not be a cheap fix at a shop good guess around 200-500$ est.

it will cause it not to move in gear,for the transmission runs on pressure from the fluid,if it doesn't shift out of park at all could be lingage on shifter.

How do i remove the transmission pan on my 1999 chevy silverado?

First you have to get break all your knuckles trying to get the shift linkage out, to do that there is two T40 Torx screws on the top side of the oil pan (driver side) second you have to manage to get the drain plug, easier said then done. The pieces of **** at chevy torque it down to like a 100 ft poulds. Better go get a new plug before you even start, its about 8 bucks. Then remove the 20 or so bolts holding the pan up... Your life is made easier if you remove the drive shaft (4x4) which unless you are magic you must remove the exaust pipe.... All and all its not a fun job... it pretty much sucks. Once all is out you can remove the fluid filter, make sure you remove the O'ring as well.... Then put it all together.... its way easier said then done... When ur finished add on to your to do list to "Punch a Chevy engineer in the face."

4-wheel drive won't shift into gear

I take it you have the manual t-case shifter on the floor. If so check all your linkages from the shifter to the t-case, if all appears well, simply disconnect the linkage from the t-case and see if it moves if it does your problem is in the shift mechanism in the t-case. if it still wont move even while disconnected clean and lube the linkage. If this still doesn't do the trick. replace your linkage
