How can I remove a stuck cam sensor on my 2007 Chevy Avalanche?

If it's stuck and you have a replacement for it, it doesn't really matter how you get it out. The sensor is broken and will be replaced. If it were me and it was stuck, I'd grab it with a pair of Vice ...

Fuel pump burned out

What @MTA stated or it could just be a fuel pump in a 2003 Avalanche gave up the ghost because it was worn out. While fuel pumps last a while, given it is probably 20 years old (assuming the fuel pump ...

I have a 2005 Chevy Avalanche that will go into drive but won't go in reverse.How can I fix the problem

Had A flat Tire found a red ring inside of stem

It's an O-ring to seal the cap to the valve stem. It belongs inside the cap. If you crank the cap on too tight, you force it into the valve core area. Just remove it and shove it back into the cap

Engine ID, transmission swap compatibility?
