Does anyone know anything about the plastic Ls intake manifolds become porous, and seeping (not leaking) coolant?

2004 duramax 1 ton single axle heated seats go out, seat motors go out, the grill cover gets brittle and falls apart after a season of snow plowin, filler neck on the tank will crack if your not carefull, two glow plugs

2008 duramax dully, third and fourth door electrical problems, fiberglass hips dont take alot of abuse, two transfer cases, four wheel bearings, one glow plug, front end gets off camber too frequently for me
My 2002 headlights will go out suddenly on high beams . It has a bad dimmer switch that needs changed. Don't know if the aftermarket switches are any good , but the gm switches are more than double the price.

I don't have a repair answer for you, but if the 1990 truck has a horn relay, you could pull it out just to silence the horn long enough for you to work on the truck.

Somehow your post is in the "Common Chevy & GMC Issues" thread.
I think your post will get more views if it was in the main forum section for these trucks & had its own thread. Then the people who know about your truck's problems will be able to see it.
Perhpas you could write a moderator to ask him or her to move your question.
Or-
If you go to this page-
https://www.truckforums.com/forum/ch...erra-forum-11/
and click New Thread, you can post your question where everyone will see it.

Hope This Helps & Good Luck With Your Repair!

2006 Silverados with the 4.3L. RUN, don't walk, away from this piece of trash motor. With regular maintenance and light driving, this truck has had more problems than any vehicle I've ever owned.

Angry Trixee is havin issues

Hello,, Bought a 97 GMC Sierra ext cab shortbox stepside last summer, 5.7, auto Recently I had the "cat" code come up, scanned to find out cat bank 2, was told my cat was bad ( plus all the gas I am smelling ) deleted code and has'nt come back. My prob is this, if the cat is bad will it cause the truck to buck and sputter, stall and sometimes not start?

well,, went out truck started.. went to grocery store no probs...comin home, get one block away and she dies on me in the middle of an intersection and refuses to start,, she cranks but seems there's not enough spark

GM Trucks auto parts

Lots of improved replacement parts here that you otherwise would spend a paycheck on to buy entire assemblies from GM. Theres also some helpful DIY's within the product pages incase you want to see how to take apart the mirrors or doors.

Just an FYI to help out the forum members

UPDATE
Patches is back up and running. After numerous so called mechanics in my area kept steering me towards the spiders being the prob only to turn out to be cap and rotor. Thanks for all the advice here. Now just have to finish off the cats
