Time to take in the truck?
I need your guys's opinion here. On a couple of things that ive been noticing about my truck.
1. First thing, ive noticed on some very rare occasions that smoke guys out of my emergency light switch. Im not sure what causes it or how its triggered. Im concerned and thinking perhaps I should take this into the dealer to have them look at it. What do you think on that? Do I need to take it in? Im thinking about doing it.
2. Everytime I go over a speed bump theres a creeking noise coming from my front left tire. Im wondering if its my ball joints, bushings, shock (I think they're OE shocks), or perhaps it doesn't have enough lube. What do you think on that? Should I have the dealer look at this and fix it?
3. Also, Im wondering when abouts to do a radiator flush? Mileage wise. Im at 98k right now and I had major fluids changed at 93k. Also, where abouts in the tank should the fluid be up too? im starting to wonder if my radiator coolant is too low or just right? There is no line to indicate max or minimum on the container.
4. Okay last question. On my cb radio, my in line fuse plastic housing doesn't click together anymore. The plastic piece holding the two halfs together broke. Whats the best way to go about fixing this? Currently my CB wont work because the fuse is not connecting to the power wire. Should I get a new inline fuse or is there another way to go about fixing this?
