2005 Z71 ECSB 5.3 102,xxx kms 4.10 gears. When driving in traffic truck sufficiently warmed up, when accelerating to pass or change lanes the trans hesitates to downshift in OD, the engine doesn't bog, the trans just hesitates long enough for me to even look down and check my gauges to see if somethings wrong each time. If I drive in 3, it drops all the way to 2nd and almost redlines. Time to change fluids & filter or am I in for a larger expense?


Brakes the last little while since the weather has been warming up here in Saskatchewan, my brakes seem to need more pressure on the predal to get to a stop.Fluid is fairly fresh, brake fluid changed 6 months ago when I bought the truck. What's the deal? was it inproperly flushed to begin with and I"ve got air in it already?

thanks

How well were the brakes bled? How do the pads/rotors look? On my truck I had vibrations when slowing down. I knew I needed brakes so I replaced with power slot rotors and hawk pads front and rear and compared to before its like I'm driving a different truck while braking.

I have no idea, everything was supposedly changed at the dealer, but my trans fluid is a little dark, and I plan on changing it when I get the chance.

I have not touched anything on this truck aside from doing colour matched handles.

The pads/rotors look fine, no squeaks or squeals that I have found or heard yet.

Was the tranny fluid brown in color or still red?
