It's still doing it because the maf isn't the problem, the codes don't need to be cleared, it's best to clear them to see if it keeps throwing the same code, but codes don't effect performance

Yup ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Fri Nov 24, 2017 3:49 pm   Subject: Sometimes it starts?

Well I replaced the MAF sensor, alot of what I read in other forums lead to that, plus put it on a scanner and it threw that code for MAF sensor.
My question is, it is still doing same thing, so do I ...

I think I'd start with the battery. When the temperature drops, a marginal battery that was working well, no longer will. The flooding will be the engine getting its prime shot every time you try to ...

Went out this morning, starts up fine when its cold.
Let it run till it got hot. Shut it off, and attempted to restart, hard to start , once it does start runs rough like Flooding? So I rev it up the ...

Have you checked spark when it doesn't crank? If no spark it's probably the crank position sensor
I havent had a chance yet, but I will check that cause now that I think about it, my 95 camaro did th ...

Sounds like fuel pump check and see if you can hear the pump in the tank coming on when you turn the key on if so check and see what the fuel pressure is

Well issue was there was ALOT of air in the system. Had nothing to do with ABS modual. Took it to dealer, and it took them 3 hours to get the air out.
Now they are working fine!

Given that you bought the truck used and the brake light appears to be disconnected, there can be some legacy issues from the previous owner. There must be a blockage somewhere.

I'll probably do mi ...

You need a scantool that has a ABS bleed function. People have tried braking on gravel to make the ABS come on, but I doubt it works as good as the scantool does.

Also I don't understand why the va ...
PostForum: GM Performance Forum   Posted: Sun Nov 12, 2017 8:15 am   Subject: 98 k1500 rear brakes wont bleed.

First off I checked and cannot confirm if brake light on dash comes on, because it doesnt even come on when you turn the key, so it may have been blown. I have only had this truck a year.
I have tri ...

So now of course I need to bleed system. All bleeder screws rusted out. I replaced both calipers, and both wheel cyclinders.
