Last night we had our first opportunity to drive a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali and Yukon Denali equipped with GM’s new Hydra-Matic 8L90 8-speed automatic. In August we drove a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette with the 8-speed but this was our first chance to try the transmission in a K2XX application.

'06 HD Questions. Looking to purchase.

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Yesterday, 10:25 PM
My father is currently in the market for and looking at a '06 HD Silverado to pull his camper. He found one at the local GMC dealer that seems to be a really good deal. It's a 6.0 Duramax, 4 door, 4x4, with 134,000 miles. $26,000. Interior is show room new quality. Outside looks good too. It's the dealer owner's personal truck and he just upgraded to a 2015. I wasn't able to be there when he test drove it today. We are both ignorant to a diesel truck anyway. He said when he test drove it today and pulled out into traffic it seemed to blow a lot of black smoke out the exhaust. I thought the days of black smoking diesels were gone years ago. It also has a sticker on it for Banks Power, although the salesman didn't know what that was for. He going to speak to the owner about it tomorrow. Is this normal for a '06 to smoke when pulling out empty? Any ideas on what else we should look at before signing the papers? Any known trouble issues with this year and model? Any insight would be great, again, as we're not familiar at all with diesel engines. Thanks for the help.

2014 4x4 rim question

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Yesterday, 10:01 PM
Right now I have stock 18" rims with stock tires 265-65/18. I believe the stock 18s have a +26 offset. I plan to get a set of KMC Rockstar 2 XD811 rims and keep it stock rim size at 18. In 18s the 2 offsets they offer is 0 and +30. I also plan to just get the stock tires mounted so I don't have to buy new tires. Keeping stock tires I can only assume that the +30 offset should work fine without rubbing since the stockers are a +26 offset. But, I'm wondering if I would be able to run 0 offset with no rubbing with stock size tires and without a level or lift. I would prefer the 0 offset so the tires stick out a little and look more aggressive, but if that will rub I wouldn't care if I had to get the +30 offset.   Does anyone know for sure? Thanks.   I've looked on here and paid attention to other threads and still haven't seen anyone without a level or lift running stock size tires on a 0 or close to 0 offset.

2002 Silverado 4.3 air in coolant system

Hi guys I have a 2002 Silverado with 4.3l engine.  There has been a chugging sound behind the dash for quite a while, like bubbles in water.   Is this just air in the coolant system?  Is there some way to bleed it or something else?   Thanks

Can a bad fan clutch cause engine misfire p0300

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Yesterday, 08:37 PM
I replaced my fan clutch in my 2006 GMC Sierra 2500HD 6.0 yesterday. I took it for a test drive and started to feel an engine misfire and the check engine light came on. As far as the fan clutch it sounded like a jet engine. Serves my right from buying a $55 Autozone fan clutch when I thought I could save myself some money when a GM one went for $155. Got home and scanned it and came up with p0300 engine misfire code. So I can't fiqure out how a bad fan cluch could possible cause a misfire issue. Or are they seperate issues? What do you think?

Philips Vision LEDs

Anyone seen these or tried them.  http://www.usa.phili...m-li/vision-led  Apparently they reflect backwards and will work in brake lights and turn signals and do not need resistors.  I have the license plate bulb already was going to try my reverse and brake lights.  I bought a 921 led from Amazon but the color is too bluish purple.  My License plate bulb matched my LED drills exactly.  I saw pics of the LED 7443 bulb installed on a Lexus and doesn't look bad. http://www.clublexus...xenondepot.html  I want LED taillights but don't like the aftermarket units out so far.

2015 2500HD level and tires solved

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Yesterday, 06:42 PM
New here so hello to everyone. Just wanted share after having some trouble finding answers / pics of what I was looking for. I know this topic has been beaten to death but there isn't a lot of concrete info out there. 2015 2500hd 6.0 stock torsion keys turned up to raise front end 2.0". All suspension and cv geometry looks really good (flat or close to it). Just fit 295/70/17 cooper st/maxx on the stock wheels no problem. Not even close to rubbing anywhere. Still has just a bit of rake in the stance as well. I think my alignment and/or torsion key adjustment was off from the factory. Pulled hard to the right and one side was on the bump stop (compressing it) while the other bump stop was approx 5/8 of an inch clear of the control arm. Will upload some pictures in a bit. Very happy with truck!

2015 High Country 2500 Build Page

2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500/3500 HD Yesterday, 06:29 PM
Figured I should start a Build Page for the Truck.     Arrived at the Dealership yesterday.   They installed the High Country Running Boards and the Hard Folding Tonneau Cover today.   Going to post a few shots later tonight.   I'm loving it so far.     On the "Mods" list are the following:   Install the DDM LED Fog Lights, High Beam and Low Beam bulbs.  Install LED "puddle lights" into the Steps of the rear bumper. Weather Tech All Weather Mats in Brown to match the Saddle Interior. Diode for the Fog Lights on with High Beams. Diode for Reverse Lights on with Cargo Lights. Tint the front two windows at 20% to match the stock Privacy Glass. Still up in the air about tinting the front windshield.  Install a 30" CREE light bar behind the Grill and have it hooked up to the High Beams.   Other than that, I am very excited to have one of the first 2015 2500 High Country's with the Diesel and Long Box !

HMI Upgrade - Video/Nav Entry in Motion, Texting, etc

2014/2015 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications 04 May 2014
This is not a sales pitch but more of a gauging interest in developing this software for the 14+ K2XX Pickup Trucks. Here is a quick Video Demo of our current HMI programming operating in our 15 Yukon Denali:     This allows for Video Playing from USB as well as BD/DVD and removes in motion lock from ALL features. This also adds an SMS texting application as well as the addition of the AVI and DIVX video formats. It also adds the welcome sounds back in that welcome you to the vehicle when its off and the startup logo plays (can be turned off on the screen)   We can also do custom programming to reuse salvage HMI's etc...

Wipe that bird crap off!

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 04 Oct 2014
I guess I finally found something wrong with my GMC. Thin paint!!! Washed the truck yesterday and there was bird crap right in the middle of the roof. I never saw it until I started washing it. I guess it's been up there for two weeks or so. Anyways, the paint bubbled up under the clear. I just threw some more clear on top of it and called it good. Luckily it's on the roof where you can't see it. Still sucks though...

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 25 Oct 2014
Today I was washing my 2014 LT 5k and I noticed a small puddle of green fluid dripping from the rear passenger wheel well. The cloth type fabric was wet from it and the fluid made it's way down to the mud guard. Just one side (wheel) and it looked just like radiator fluid. I'm very confused.

Ordered 2015 Silverado LTZ Z71 6.2L/8-speed arrived at dealer

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Yesterday, 07:18 AM
My father's 2015 Silverado LTZ with the 6.2L/8-speed arrived at our dealer in NH this past Tuesday.  We're currently waiting for the Certificate of Origin to arrive and will probably pick up the truck mid-week next week.  This is the first 6.2L/8-speed that they received.  The truck was formally ordered mid-September as soon as an allocation was available to the dealer (likely the second or third week of allocation since only 10 Double Cab 6.2L/8-speeds were available nationwide on the first week).   Here's the build:   CK15753 – 4WD Standard Box Double Cab LTZ (2LZ/Z71) GCE - Deep Ruby Metallic H2U – Jet Black interior L86 - Engine, 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 (w/M5U 8-speed) CGN - Spray-on bed liner UF2 – LED bed lighting CTD - Cargo tie downs (4), movable upper

Fuel Pump Pressure

2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 28 Oct 2014
Hi gang, I'm a streetrodder who purchased a 2014 rollover/wrecked GMC Sierra w/9K miles so I could pull the 5.3L engine/xmission and put in my 1936 Ford streetrod.  I understand that the Sierra has 2 fuel pumps, one low pressure in the tank and one high pressure in the engine block which runs off the cam.  I have to buy a new gas tank anyway for my 36 Ford and I need to know how much pressure the fuel pump must support in the tank.  I can't find the info anywhere.   Thks,   Gary

i have a 2015 hd3500 dually with remote start, is there an option to change the duration of run time before shutting itself off ? it only runs for 10 minutes and then i have to restart it. it is the factory option from gmc. also anybody else notice when heat or ac is on high and you open the door that there is a severe "popping" sound. i guess this is from the positive air pressure in the cabin.

2014+ Gas Mileage (MPG) Topic

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust 20 Jul 2013
Hi everyone!  I'm new to the forum and I'm about to order a new 2014 Sierra.  What's everyone that's lucky enough to own one seeing in the fuel mileage dept?  I'm particularly interested in the city mileage since I have about a 4 mile drive to work and don't do much highway driving.  I have a Trailblazer SS currently and I'm getting about 11 MPG.  Hoping for a decent improvement and to get at least what the EPA rating is for city driving (16 MPG).  However, I know the EPA estimates aren't always the most accurate. Thanks in advance!
