Two Questions about 2001 Chevy

5 posts in this topic

My first question is i have had a problem with my check engine light coming on in third gear and also when ever i use my tow haul button when the light comes on it only blinks at me but it rarely stays on. I had my buddy hood it up to his tester and it said random cylinder misfire what could this be and what kind of fix would it take.

My second question is I have been looking at getting some of those plastic bed rail covers. Just wondering if you are able to put a topper on when after you install these. Also what are some good brands?

Thanks

How many miles?

I would guess its a 5.3?

How many times has it done it?

Have you felt it run ruff?

Does it happen after a could start or after you have driven for a while, or is it completely random?

Have you noticed any other symptoms, ruff idle, extended crank, even worse fuel economy?

Was the "tester" a scan tool or a code reader. If it was a code reader they can be misleading. I have had mine display incorrect codes and/or not display codes at all.

I would definitely get a scan tool on it. The scan tool will be able to show you all the codes and if there is a true misfire you will be able to see the misfire history for each cylinder. This will help narrow down the possibilities.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
