Dead Chevy Dead Chevy Dead Chevy

My friend and I were doing doughnuts in his duramax and he lost his steering and is belt had popped off. Well we call everyone we know and finally got a ride back to my house and got in my Ford to go do a rescue mission. Well gm doesn't even have any type of belt diagram for the duramax's. We tryed a route but it didn't work and it's late so the truck sits tonight and gets towed to Chevy in thhe morning to get this thing fixed along with the rearend that has been in for 3 times already. The cool thing is that we were doing this at school. I can't believe that gm wouldn't put a belt diagram on the truck but gm's are chick trucks and chicks don't know anything about anything on trucks.

Talking

it is appropriate that a ford saved a chevy, and yeah, it is surprising that ANY vehicle wouldn't have a belt diagram when you have a serpentine belt. be careful about the chick comments thought, banshee might have something to say about that! LOL!

That is odd - that there is no diagram for the routing. Sad to hear about the rear-end problem, too.

Every Ford Truck owner should print these out and carry them in his/her truck.
