    Truck will not go into any gear, just thumps really hard and rolls a few inches either direction. Mechanic shows code of P0562, TCM low voltage. I've exhausted all my internet research down to batteries, ignition switch, wiring short between TCM and trans, or TCM failure. I replaced ignition...

    I just had my 3rd starter in 4 weeks break, wtf? After replacing it the second time I check the bolts for tightness daily and they are tight. I've never seen a starter break off and the part of the housing that is bolted is still attached to motor. Until now that is. And idea why these keep...

    I am not a mechanic and I am probably way over my head! My son purchased a 2003 LB7 truck with 95,000 original miles. It runs rough at idle and has excessive blow by. The mechanic is recommending a used engine swap with a 176,000 mile LKQ motor instead of fixing this one. His reasoning is...

    I’m a proud owner of an ‘04 ccsb lb7 with a zf6. My problem is the poor thing needs either a rebuild or new owner. I put 127 miles on it last year, mostly plowing snow. It’s a fairly solid truck with minimal rust and decent interior. It for certain needs head gaskets and injectors. And while I’m...

    My 01 3500 LB7 will go into limp mode when towing. It has to be sort of a long hill. I need about 10 seconds up hill with at least an empty gooseneck trailer. I did catch a code months back, P0234 overboost. But it rarely throws a code when it goes into limp mode. I finally got a pillar...

    Ok guys so i just got this 01 LB7, she’s a 4x4 extended cab truck in great shape. And under 200k miles! My only problem so far is this weird idle surge. Sometimes it happens sometimes it doesn’t, sometimes it’s only in drive at idle and not in park and sometimes the opposite. I replaced the FPR...

    Has anyone had a problem with Dorman's high pressure feed lines? I installed them about 3 years ago on my LB7 as part of an injector job and was pleased with the price and quality. I always use a 19mm flare nut crow's foot to torque them properly. Yesterday while driving, had a strong fuel smell...
