Flushing an automatic transmission can do more harm than good, stirring up sludge on the bottom that does no harm, change it, sure, but flush, well I never do that on my cars And what belt or chain are you referring to?

Sorry-was vague, the timing belt or chain (don't know what it has). Used to be recommended replacement 60-90,000.

Find out if it has a chain or belt. If it's a chain, forget it, don't worry about it, but a belt MUST be replaced at 90,000 MAXIMUM, I would go with 60,000

What engine is in it and I will try to find out if it has a belt

Every engine option for 2005 that I could find Silverados have a chain. The 4.6, if that's what you have, for sure
