    2011 Chevy door will not open

    Checked with the closest body shop Thursday 25 miles away. He said if any thing has been taken apart or pry marks they would not even look at it. Guess he doesn't need the business. I have an appointment with dealer body shop in Bismarck 60 miles away Wed. if I can't get it before then. Yes extended cab with rear swinging doors (that latch to the front doors).

    2011 Chevy door will not open

    I am headed to WalMart to get a 48 inch flat screen TV box ( need to put some kind of wight in the box). Some how block the passenger side door leave the TV box in the front seat with seat laid back with the window down just an inch or so See if some one can get the TV out!!

    2011 Chevy door will not open

    Power door locks. Already tried the key. I can see the lock rod move up and down That is what I am thinking. May be when it was opened last time the catch piece didn't get all the way up and got shoved down when the door was shut and it broke shutting it the second time. Maybe if I took the seat out to get more room the panel might come off but will still have to cut into the inside metal to get at the latch. I was thinking if I could get the back door open the front will come with it. Been looking at the back door on the passenger side. The top latch can be tipped with not much problem so just have to figure out how to get at the bottom one.

    2011 Chevy door will not open

    Dealer has a new latch ($195) so looked at that to see how the levers work. The inside handle pulls a cable that pulls a lever down to release and the out side handle a rod down to release they are some how connected inside the latch as they work together. Thanks

    2011 Chevy door will not open

    I need a little help here. 2011 chevy 1500 extended cab drivers side door will not open from inside or out. The other night I got into the truck shut the door but it did not latch. Not thinking thought maybe seat belt was in the way so pulled it up and buckled it ( I don't think the seat belt was the problem) slammed the door again, it didn't sound exactly right but it latched and has been latched ever since. It will not open from inside or out, the lock goes up and down. Dealer not much help. Said to take inside door panel off. Great only one problem I see you can not take it off with the door closed. With the window down I can see the latch and with a 3/16th rod can push down on the part that the out side handle would push down to open but nothing happens. Some thing must be jammed some where. Any one have any clues on how to get the door open. Besides the torch or angle grinder. All kinds of videos on youtube but none that I have seen show how to get the door open. Thanks

    Easy method for checking your block heater.

    I am going to learn some thing here. So in the first post Lorenzo has 9.3 amps so would it be safe to say he has what would be called a 1000 watt heater? Will all heaters like Lorenzo has draw 9.3 amps? If represented as a 1000 watt heater it should only draw 8.3 amps? Why is it drawing more? Thnaks

    Easy method for checking your block heater.

    1000 watts makes a KW? Might be wrong, but a 1000 watt heater .10 an hour a 500 watt .05 an hour, So two 500 watt s for waters times 24 $2.40 a day x 30 days $72 a month 1 tractor 1000 watt 20 hours a day $2 x 30 days $60 so an extra $132 a month for the winter

    General battery question

    Anybody use Crown brand batteries? Good? Bad ? Just put a 4D-XD 1300 CCA in the 60 Hough payloader with the V6 cummins. The one I took out was a Crown that was 5 years old $220 Cat and Interstate were both $279

    Hydro 84 - Puking out oil breather tube

    I am sure you checked the engine oil, right? Is it over full? Smell like diesel in the oil?

    4156 PTO stub shaft

    I bought a 4166 six or seven years ago the previous owners lost the shaft from the transmission to the pto. NLA of course. Had two dealers looking for one the price on Messicks was $550. Dealer in Mandan ND could get one for $450 and a small dealer in Haliday ND could get one shipped to me for $350 with shipping. It came out of the obsolete parts warehouse in Beaver Dam WI. But you must order from dealer was the only catch.

    Duck, it's another oil question!!

    Lorenzo has bulk HyTran for 15.29 a gallon. 76.45 for five. Northern Plains out of Minot ND I think would deliver for free if he was coming my way with other delivery in may area. I would bet if I had things ready and taking 75 gallons or more he might even pump it into my tractor or other implement while he was eating the fresh made rolls.

    L 50 Michigan (Volvo)

    Transmission was ok. It WAS a fuse. Enough current to lite up test lite but not enough to make shift work. Cleaned holder and new fuse, good to go. Thanks
