Disabling daytime running lights(DRL) on 96 tahoe
Decided to do a video on turning off the daytime running lights on the old
body style tahoe most important thing to look for is the finned metal block
that can be found slightly right to the steering column. Also another thing
to look for is the fuse panel on the driver of the truck which is mounted
on the side of the dashboard and pull the number 15 fuse for the drl's. If
your in the market for h.i.d then this will help because now you don't have
to worry about running your h.i.d during the day.

GMC and CHEVY truck easy fuel pump fix - make a hatch
I was on my way to the dump one day and my fuel pump went out.
Frustrating... This is my aircraft mechanic way of fixing my fuel pump.
Airplanes have lots of hatches. You don't have to take the wings off an
airplane to get to the fuel pump.
Some people don't like the idea of cutting a small square in their bed and
that's ok. But I see people modifying their trucks all the time for purely
cosmetic reasons and some of those mods actually make their trucks less
useful so I don't think a purely practical modification is out of line.
On these GM trucks you can scoot the bed back or drop the tank to get to
the fuel pump. Or just make a hatch. Rivet on some tabs and put the piece
you sawed out back on with some sealant. If you have a bed liner nobody
will know but you. Shoot, chrome the hatch and be proud of it.
Now if your $60 ebay fuel pump goes out again it's a 15 minute fix instead
of a 4 hour dirty tank drop. And no need for the $400 OEM pump because
you're scared to go through the hassle of dropping the tank again.
When I took the pump out it was actually just the flex hose that takes the
fuel from the pump to the top of the tank that had cracked. But that OEM
pump was always very noisy so I chucked it and went with the cheapest pump
on ebay which is still going strong after a couple years and is completely

Dodge and GMC are on Nitto Terra Grapplers. Nissan is running Michelin LTX

1999 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L V8 fuel pressure regulator.mp4
Finding the fuel pressure regulator on a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 5.7L V-8. Under
the plastic intake manifold. Would crank but not start, would only start
with starter fluid and then would remain running, but once shut off, it
wouldn't start again without starter fluid. The fuel pressure regulator
wasn't even in my repair manual. Couldn't find any info online. I hope
this helps those with similar issues. When lifting the manifold, you only
have to lift the left side (pasenger side) as you face the vehicle. This
way you don't have to remove everything. I put it all back together and it
starts up like new. I did check my fuel pressure before digging this
regulator out. I was sitting about 55-60lbs.
