Question about 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2 Answers

Just purchased a 2008 silverado. When I get up to 70-75 it sounds like i'm being peppered on the roof by a load of fine gravel. Drop back down and it goes away. Any ideas and/or what i should be looking for?

Do you have a "bug" deflector on the front of your hood. When I installed one on my 2008 Silverado I experienced the same issue. I took the deflector off and the noise stopped. Evidently the deflector creates turbulance with the air flow over the windshield.

I've just purchased a 2008 SLK 200. Does anyone know how to put the rear quarter windows up whilst top down.

I have a CLK 2001 and my rear window buttons just work normally when the roof is down. I can even raise a rear window without raising the front one.

My roof will not go down has been fine until yesterday new motto last year the red light comes on as if it's working but won't go down

There is no easy solution for this. You are going to have to take the car back to BMW service or the BMW specialist you used to replace the original motor for testing and analysis..

Don't keep trying to drop the roof down as you may not get it back up again if you do lower it and you will be in worse trouble.

2008 pt cruiser problems. At idle with Air Cond on get frequent RPM drop. 50-100 RPMs. Withour Air Condition on car idles fine (no drop) Also can hear a single click sound when drop occures.

The click sound would be the air conditioner compressor engaging, the engine will slow down do to the additional load. If it idles rough you probably need to think about cleaning the throttle body.

I have a 2008 chevy silverado and was going down the highway and a message came up in the odometeterENGINE POWER REDUCED! and started slowing down i pulled over and shut the engine off and started back up...

This is a 'limp home mode' and is engaged if a fault is detected that may result in damage to the engine if allowed to go unchecked. Take the vehicle to a dealer or Autozone and get a read out of the stored error codes from the on-board diagnostics module as this will help define the exact nature of the fault.

My 08 toyota tacoma tailgate latch is jammed and

Some gravel has gone down the latch holes on each side. Take the tailgate out and place it on something that won't scratch it like an old blanket. Turn it upside down each way and gently tape on it with your hand to dislodge the gravel while operating the latch.

TT Roadster roof problems

I had problem with the flaps staying open,pilot error you have to have the engine running and it's fine wish the dealer told me that. The only problem I have is when the roof has been down for a while , when it's then closed there is a small bump that appears on the near side.
