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.

      I didn't think so I will ask the dnr but the way it reads youth and archery are not restricted to zone and time

      I could have been wrong but normally you had to pick a zone

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase
