Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab

Open Question

I have a 2004 chevy silverado 1500 4.8 v8, my truck as shutting off on me randomly, so i changed to throttle body, my truck stopped shutting off but then the reduced engine power popped up in the CIC, looked some more and everyone posted something about a gas peddal sensor, so changed that out, ran a diognostics after and no codes came up, i drove the truck for about 45min and it came back on with a check engine light on, any suggestions on what my problem could be?

These trucks have a drive by wire system,we seen a` lot with a broken ground wire on the rear of the drverside cyl head,this is hard to see just feel and give the wire a tug .If the wire is loose or broken the reduced engine power light will come on.

SOURCE: 2004 chevy silverado

The above descriptions of the connector are very good. I washed the engine compartment yesterday, and immediately started getting the reduced enginer power code on the CIC, not performance. After reading several posts, I checked the connector on my 2003 2500HD, and found that the connector was not seated well and had gotten water in it. I cleared the water and the reconnected. The cables running from the fuse box to the connector are so short, the connector is in a bind and is pulled off-center. That is why the connector wasn't seated properly. The code went away, and the performance returned. By the way, be sure to do this after pulling the negative cable on your battery.

SOURCE: code p0121 TPS

THERE IS A TP SENSOR BUILT INTO THE THROTTLE ACTUATOR. THESE TRUCKS HAVE BEEN KNOWN FOR A FEW PROBLEMS IN THIS AREA. THROTTLE ACTUATOR IS NOT SERVICEABLE. THE THROTTLE BODY WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED IF IT IS PROVEN FAULTY. THE APP SENSORS ARE LOCATED IN THE GAS PEDAL MODULE. THESE SEND SIGNAL TO COMPUTER TO TELL IT WHERE YOUR FOOT IS, THEN COMPUTER SENDS COMMAND TO THROTTLE ACTUATOR TO OPEN OR CLOSE THROTTLE BASED ON THIS INPUT. THE SENSOR IN THE THROTTLE ACTUATOR DELIVERS A MESSAGE BACK TO THE COMPUTER TO TELL IT WHAT THE ACTUAL THROTTLE POSITION IS. IF THESE SIGNALS DONT MATCH(WHERE THROTTLE IS COMMANDED AND WHERE IT ACTUALLY IS)THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT WILL ILLUMINATE AND THE VEHICLE COULD GO INTO A REDUCED POWER MODE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU!

I have worked on these and have found that there are issues with the throttle "body". You should be able to get one on ebay for around $80. They have wiring issues inside and get poor connections after warming up and cooling down repeatedly. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado 4.8 v8 engine and I'm trying to locate the EGR valve. Thanks


The EGR valve is on the passenger side of the engine if you are looking at the front of the motor. There is a hose that goes into the intake behind the throttle body and another hose that goes into the exhaust manifold. It is the unit that has an electrical connector going into it.
