2003 Silverado Base 2WD; I recently replaced clutch. After completed job several things happened. Valves pinging with acceleration; after about 5 miles engine
goes into limp mode. The engine will not shut off when key turned off. ( To turn off I need to put in gear with brake on let out clutch. None of these issues prior to removing transmission for clutch replacement
JA: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?
Customer: Standard shift , in neutral or first gear when stopped. No wheel locks.
JA: What is the model of your '03 Chevy?
Customer: Silverado 1500 2WD base reg cab (no bells/ wisles)
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Hope to fix myself. Do most repairs and maintenance myself. Clutch job was a bit more than i anticipated.
I've checked vac hoses. wiring. plugs that were disconnected to remove tranny. All seem OK.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Last night when I was driving, when I turned on bright lights, engine went into limp mode. Also AC has not worked since clutch job. I keep thinking there is a shorted wire somewhere and all is related.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
