2000 Silv XCab Z71
I have the usual clunk on stopping and starting. It even had the
nickel-plated yoke installed to no avail.
Out of warranty now, I'm stuck paying for it myself.
I might try it myself, and I might take it to a local garage. Can anyone
give me detailed instructions (possibly pics by email?) on how to do this?
These instructions will either be for me to do it or to make sure the local
garage knows exactly how to fix it.
e.g. What type of lubrication? What to watch for... how to make it last the
Does anyone know how to fix the squeaking steering wheel boot?
Again I'm going to have to do this all myself, so I'm looking for good
instructions for me or a local mech. NOT a stealer.
Ahh, see all those fancy good idea fixes dont last.
The yoke has a binding problem, GM adds teflon to the 'blue' atf fluid to cure
the problem and as a additive for the late model
Try adding 'TuffOil' to the txfrcase. $9 , follow the instructions (1oz per
Quart or some thing like that). Should stop the thumps
in 50 or so miles.
Its been working for me for the last 4 years. Never had grease anything, and
probably never will.
"99 Z71, and have had the problem since new, dealer changed transfer case
fluid and it took care of problem for awhile, but it came back, tried
greasing splines with Mobil 1 and no good results, Changed transfer case
fluid again using the AutoTrack (blue) fluid from GM and it's taken care of
the clunk for now , but rest assure, it'll come back , usually in 6-9
