2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 stepside

Asked by Morgan Mar 24, 2020 at 10:37 PM

Question type: Car Customization

I'm getting this vehicle from family and I was told
this truck has a 5.7l in it but i was just needing to
know if this was possible and if so, what can i do
to it. Also, I was told when the key is turned on,
everything in the truck turns on and then when
turning the key further it clicks one time and
everything shuts off, so can I get help on this?
Lastly, about the truck, I'm not sure if its 4wd or not
so dont get at me about that.

It most likely a 5.3 not a 5.7 and if it clicks only one time it could be a bad starter or there are bad connection issues with either main power or grounds. This is assuming the battery is fully functional.
