LS3 Tapping Noise I'm experiencing an intermittent tapping noise coming from under the intake manifold. Also, hesitation during acceleration. Has anyone else had this issue in an LS3? I'm being told its possibly a turned lifter. Local dealership recommended replacing the engine.....WTH! Car doesn't run erratic, oil pressure hasn't changed and no decrease in gas mileage. Any suggestions or options from the field? C36Maverick 12/5/2018 5:30:55 PM0
Radio upgrade options Just bought a used 06 base convertible with base single disc radio. Volume knob has a short so I need to repair or replace. I also would like to add xm radio. My first choice would be to upgrade to the corvette nav radio with xm: however, my local dealer says that is not possible. What are my options to replace/upgrade? Steve Davis 10/12/2017 6:45:19 AM0
Side Mirrors When I drive my 2005 C6 and put it in reverse, the side mirrors go down for backing. When I put it back in gear to move forward, the mirrors do not return to the original position. Any ideas? Can I fix myself? Thanks Jack Jack Fields 11/4/2014 10:19:55 AM1
C6 mufflers Any one had any experience with the mufflers from Mid-America; MAM Quad Cruiser Exhaust, 2009-2013 w/3.5" Round Tips, part #627837. Any problems with the quality, fit & how much louder than stock? Thanks everyone in advance. Mike Scribner 6/20/2014 9:03:29 AM0
Clutch Fluid Low Causing Yellow Engine Warning Light to Come On. My 2007 Vette has been sitting in my garage for a week since the yellow engine warning light came on - was towed to dealer today. On the day that I was closing the deal for this car 5/27/14 I took it to dealer to fix problem with cigarette lighter not working for Garmin nor Escort 9500IX...fuse replaced fixed that...but yellow engine light came on while at dealer for fuse problem and they just said clutch fluid level was low and was cause for the warning light. Now I'm no mechanic but know that this is just like brake fluid in that it is a closed system and if fluid is low you have a LEAK and need to check for that ... not simply add fluid and blow it off as "being fixed". MY QUESTION: Anyone else have this happen with their Vette - losing clutch fluid with 6 speed manual 6.2 L LS2? Dan McCrea 6/11/2014 1:57:57 PM6

Corvette Quality & Customer Service As a die-hard Corvette enthusiast having owned over a dozen, my first at age 18 I have now realized the standards have diminished. I know 2 guys (twin brothers)who bought 2005 vettes & picked them up from the factory in Bolling Green right off the line. One has had the same problem with the Active Handling but was never notified of a re-call. I told them in June 2012. I have never owned one that they didn't back up the quality until now. GM -Chevrolet has out-sourced their customer service office to Argentina & that gets you no-where! I have proven that my car was built on 4/6/2004 (convertible & only have 14,000 miles) & their recall campaign #10V-172 was for my exact problem for cars built between March 2004 & Jan 2006 but only for cars noted as yr. 2005 or 2006. The were supposed to recall 40,000. This being the only American Sports Car built & costing over $50M, I personally think this is disgraceful. If you've had a problem, they need to know!

Column Lock Bypass My 2005 C6 locked up. Engine would not start. Car would not function and the message said column check-column lock.
