I bought a new 07 Silverado with the 5.2l. Love It!
Anyone have a good source for Bedrail guards?
Also, I put a K&N filter in it. I can feel an increase in throttle response, but mileage dropped from 17 mpg to about 15.2! Ya, I'm taking it easy and not lead footing it. Any ideas? Too rich now?

Chevy sells real good bedrail guards...got mine for around $100 from the dealer parts counter...Gas milage should go up with the new filter...We have a tendency to "hot foot" it to listen to the sweet sound of the unrestricted air...

I have a 07 Silverado LTZ (new style)...Everything works well except that I can't see the instrument cluster in the daytime. Is there anyway to make these dash lights come on with just the regular Daytime running lights?

Try running the fog lights in the day. I have H.I.D. replacement bulbs on my LTZ and the daytime lights don't work. I use my fog lights instead. It does turn on the running lights though.

The New Silverado come with 4 engine choices 4.3, 4.8,5.3, and 6.0 so i would check with your dealer and find out what happen to the other 0.1 litre

I have the new 07 Silverado & I am removing the emblems. Does anyone know if the chevy bow tie on the tailgate is glued on or bolted on?

Don't pamper it too much, that can hurt overall gas mileage especially in the first few thousand miles. Engines need to be worked a bit to break them in properly IMO. It will thank you with better ring seal and better compression.

New Question... I just bought a new 07 LTZ. Does anybody know of a way to turn off the auto locking feature that locks the doors when you shift from park? You have a choice of "at park" or "at speed" but no option to turn it off. I hate it. Please help!!!

I have a 2007 1500 5.3L with 6k miles I am only getting 14.5-15 MPG with it. Also I noticed that this truck dose not stop as well as my 2002 especially when I am towing. Any one else notice this?

I have a 2007 LTZ 5.3 With K&N on it and getting 17.4 MPG right now with mixed city/high 4500 miles on the truck..so you need to learn how to cruise you truck if you cant get about 15 mpg

Just got a new 2007 1500 & need to know how to totally disable the OnStar that GM forced on me. Also would like to know how to disable the automatic lock feature.
