Great News For GM's Workers

Feb 05 2016 12:02 PM | Gorehamj in News

Those of us that grew up in a union household know that overtime pay, shut-down overtime pay and annual profit sharing bonuses mean a lot to a family.  For about 50,000 families in the U.S., GM's huge $6.3 billion in profits last year means that workers that worked their full-time shifts will receive $11,000 in profit sharing.  This is the largest profit sharing check the UAW workers will have received in a long time.

New Details Change Colorado / Canyon Sales Picture

Earlier this week General Motors reported its sales numbers and put such a positive spin on the Colorado and Canyon sales we were faked out.  We saw through the hype and reported the decline in sales of the Colorado and the Canyon's very slight increase accurately, but there is more to the story.

Toyota Gives Up On Scion - Thoughts?

On lieu of any big GM truck news today, I thought I would write an unconventional eulogy for Scion from the "first person perspective."  Toyota pulled the plug on Scion very secretly last night.  Although I wrote a story predicting this at an outlet I covered news about Scion for (that ruffled some feathers), even Toyota's PR network didn't know until they woke up this morning that the company was giving up on Scion as an individual brand.  Even pretty mundane stuff is usually shared with the PR network in advance, and we writers often get "embargoed" stories shortly ahead of the news release so stories can be prepared for morning publication.  Not this time.

Colorado Sales Down in First Month of Duramax D...

In the first month of sales since the new Duramax diesel Chevy Colorados were available GM sold less Colorados.  And not by a little.  Sales were down 7.3% for the month.  Notably, at 5,508 units, it seems as if Chevy sold much less than its total production output capability.  Prior months had reached almost 8,000 units (December was 7,900) The Canyon was essentially flat with January sales of 2,270 versus 2,205 in 2015.  The Canyon had sold as many as 3,000 units in prior months.

Chevy's sales in January 2016 were down 3.6% compared to January 2015.  Yet, GM's sales communications headline is "Chevrolet Continues as the Industry’s Fastest Growing Brand, Leading GM Retail Sales Increase."  Apparently sales new can never be bad at GM.  GM's overall sales for the month were up 0.5%.

Costco GM Sales Event Has Interesting Twist

Back in October GM-Trucks.com alerted our readers to a special GM sales event from Costco.  The big-box store provides deep discounts to customers that order their GM truck or car from them.  Our contact at Costco let us know today that the sales promotion was a big success.  58,000 new GM owners took part in the program and received a great deal on a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac.  The program connected 34% more buyers with GM vehicles this year compared to last.  However, it was the cool customer conquest chart Costco provided we found most interesting.

Systems that can see a forward crash coming and automatically apply the brakes for a driver work.  I know this first hand.  Last year I was on the highway when a flock of turkeys ran across all the lanes in front of me and drivers ahead of me stopped.  The Auto-braking kicked in before I could react, and likely saved me from rear ending a pickup truck in a tiny Acura at high speed.

General Motors and Chevrolet are auctioning off the very first COPO Camaro drag car at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, AZ auction Friday January 29th.  Serial number 2016COPO001 will be sold to the highest bidder and all proceeds will go to The United Way.  The COPO Camaro is a purpose-built drag racer that competes in the NHRA Stock Eliminator class.  Its new style was influenced by Courtney Force.  The drivetrain is unique to the car, and features a 350 racing engine with a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger. The name, COPO, is Chevy-insider-speak for "Central Office Production Order."  Originally a fleet ordering system, Chevy dealers adopted the system to configure special, unique, performance cars back in the day.

[help] 2010 Silverado 1500 won't start; is leaking something

2000-2006 & 2007-2014 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 2500HD/3500HD Today, 03:12 PM
Specs:  2010 Silverado 1500 WT 4.3L V6   About three days ago my truck started turning over much more slowly. I had never had a problem with it before. Yesterday it turned over slow and wouldn't start. Now it doesn't even turn all the way over.   I suspected the battery was just old. I got my roommate to give me a jump, and it started, but still turned over slowly. All the lights still worked. I got under the hood to check the specs to replace the battery and noticed black stuff all over some tubes running from the back of the fan. I don't know what these tubes are, or what's coming out of them. It doesn't smell. There's a small puddle of it on the skid plate. So, what exactly is leaking? If I replace my battery and get the truck to start, is it safe to drive it to the shop, or could I damage the vehicle? I noticed some pawprints in the dust on top of the air intake. I suspect a neighborhood cat jumped up to take a nap under my hood and knocked something loose. I've attached pictures for reference, I can't seem to find out what any of these parts do.   Thanks in advance, you guys rock

Drive line noise & Vibration

2014 / 2015 / 2016 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 02:17 PM
My 2015 Silverado crew has a whirling noise on deceleration. So far they put planeteries in transmission new ring gear & pinion all new bearings. New Trans yoke because it was leaking. New exhaust system. The noise is still there. This truck has Goodyear 275-55-20 LS tires. There has been a bad vibration since day one. They have put a multitude of tires & have another ordered now. My wife has a Yeti cup in the console & it shakes so bad the ice in the cup rings like a bell. It'll shake a Styrofoam cup out of the cup holder. So far to date it's been in the dealership 9 times. No joke a total time of 8 weeks. "O" there is a screaming noise in the engine sometime usually when turning sharply into parking lots. Has anyone got their truck fixed? I love my truck but can't use it like this.

Clarification/opinions wanted

2014 / 2015 / 2016 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & Modifications Today, 01:58 PM
First off, I have a 2015 Silverado 2500 HD wanting to add HID's.  I'm pretty sure I have the projector type bulbs.  I was mainly wondering what the quality if any difference between these two kits are?  They both seem to replace the projectors with real HID projectors and fastheadlights use morimoto HIDS.  What am I missing and what opinions of which way to go?  Also, I've linked the Fog/high beam kits I was considering as well to see if anyone has opinions of how these will all look together.  Forgive me if all this info is somewhere else but I did not see it.  Thanks   HID retro kits:   https://www.theretro...ml#.VroOp7n2bIV   http://www.fastheadl...vy_retrofit-kit     Fog: https://www.theretro...ml#.VroEarn2bIV   highs: Either https://www.theretro...ml#.VroEfbn2bIU or https://www.theretro...ml#.VroElbn2bIU

FREE Pair of 2016 Daytona 500 Tickets !!!!!

Off-Topic Today, 01:18 PM
Hi gang - back in December, the good folks at this site offered up 2 tickets to this year's Daytona 500 on Feb 21st for whoever turned in the best road-trip story. My story about my Quadrasteer Yukon XL won the contest and I was elated because my brother and I were going to road trip down there together (from Indianapolis and of course in my Yukon!).   Now fast forward to today - I have sold my Yukon (after having it for 10 years, someone gave me an offer I couldn't refuse), and my brother is recovering from back surgery. His doc advised him not only to not make the trip, but even if we flew, he wouldn't be able to sit in the stands all day for the race. So the bottom line is - I can't go now.   So, working with the admins of this site, if you reply to this post with your desire/ability to go to the race, they will then randomly pick a winner out of the folks who respond. This needs to be soon, and you need to make sure you can go - everyone here will want to see pictures of your road trip and of the race!   So now you're thinking - where the heck will I stay. Well...if you're interested, I have a buddy here at work who I was going to cancel my hotel and buy his oceanfront condo timeshare for that weekend....

Would this be a easy swap? '08 2WD 6L90 to replace '07 4WD 6L9

Transmission, Suspension, Transfer Case, & Axles Today, 01:09 PM
I've looked around and can't really find the answer to my question so thought I'd try on here.       I am building a project '49 Chev truck and the donor vehicle is a 2007 3500HD 4x4 with a 6L LY6 motor and a 6L90 transmission     The '49 I want to be 2WD and not 4x4, so my plan was to sell the transmissions/transfer case and purchase a 2WD 6L90. I found someone selling a very low mile 6L90 from a '08 2500HD, so I was planning to buy it but my question is about the '07 ECM/TCM, would I need to do any reprogramming of any sort to get this combination to work? Or does the computer not really care if it's a 2WD or 4WD transmission it handles it the same?   I know I need to get my ECM reprogrammed to eliminate the vehicle antitheft and some of the other systems I'm not going to be needing, but I wasn't sure if I'd have more needing to be done if I switch transmissions as well.     Any advice is appreciated

Reliability or Mileage?

1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500 Today, 01:05 PM
Seeing the posts about mileage got me to thinking what's more important, mileage or dependability? Back in the 70's I owned a built 350 in a Nova, terrible mileage, lots of wrenching to keep it running good. Points, condenser, plugs, setting the dwell, who remembers doing that? Solid lifters to adjust but gas was cheap, so were a lot of things compared to today. Even a stock vehicle took more wrenching than today's cars and the mileage wasn't great. I don't miss it.   Fast forward; Today's vehicles are easier to maintain and get better mileage. My 1993 5.7L TBI averaged 12 to 14 mpg city and 15 to 17 mpg highway, mountain driving 13 to 15 mpg, about 10 mpg when towing my boat. This was a reliable truck, easy to maintain and work on.     My 2012 Sierra has been averaging 13.5 mpg city, 18 to 19 mpg highway, 14 to 16 mpg mountains. I bought a truck not a pregnant roller skate with a 4 cylinder. I'll buy the gas, just let it last.

L86 Headers and cat-back vs stock exhaust

Gen V Small Block Engine, Drivetrain, & Exhaust Today, 12:43 PM
Yesterday I dynoed a 2016 Denali with an L86 6.2 the following mods: CJTunes Flex fuel conversion and custom tuning K&N CAI  Kooks 1 3/4" Catted headers Gibson Cat-back   The truck made solid power at 408whp/461 ft/lbs    I had a customer contact me asking about what headers would add to his truck. He has a 2015 Denali L86 6.2 with the following: CJTunes Flex fuel conversion and custom tuning Airaid CAI Stock exhaust   The truck made 370whp/432 ft/lbs   He was curious what headers would be worth on his truck so I overlaid the two graphs. The header/exhaust truck put down an additional 37.5whp and 29 ft/lbs. The header truck had 51% ethanol content and the manifold truck was around 65% if I recall. I don't think it would make more than a 2-4hp difference but is worth noting.     **This is not the same truck but I tuned both and the mods are very similar, I am not claiming this to be a true back to back test but it gives you an idea of gains**

New Guy

New Member Introductions Today, 12:06 PM
Hey guys and gals, new to the forum here as well as to the chevy/GMC club. Just picked up my new (2014) Silverado 3500HD LTZ on Saturday. We went looking for a Dodge 2500 and after 7 hrs, the dealership General Manager ended up selling his (ours now) newly purchased truck to us. So I'll see if I can piece everything together for a small explanation and then post some pics, for everyone to help me out also. It's a 2014 3500HD LTZ Chevy Silverado, 35x12.5x20 KMC XD series wheels with Toyo Open Country M/T tires with a Pro Comp lift (unsure which size, but if you know let me know lol), retractable side steps, tv screens in headrests.... This guy pretty much built my dream truck haha. Wife convinced and persuaded the dealership to put in a touchscreen/nav system and I'm pretty sure that'll complete this truck. Kinda sad, I won't be able to do the work like I did with our old Tundra but I think I will live. Can't wait to get in here and see what this forum is all about. Look forward to learning more about a truck brand I've had very little experience with. Best Regards!

 yesterday apparently an old lady had a heart attack while driving and barreled into me at an estimated 50mph in my 6 day old truck. Hit me right no the side and threw the truck at least 60 feet. Im a little sore on my shoulder but thats it. Old lady appears to have made it ok after being transported.   Truck had 99 miles on it, and was just washed waxed and detailed. Frame is bent and cab is shifted about an inch and a half. Hoping for a total loss here. What do you guys think. Adjuster coming by later today.   I use this truck to tow a 30 ft boat about 9000 lbs and don't want to be going down the highway at 55 with a bent frame. Any advice??

I hope to pick up my new Sierra today.  Waiting for the dealer to call to tell me if it is in today or not.  2016 Sierra SLT, Z71 4x4, silver, sunroof, loaded.  Swapping out the chrome wheels for the aluminum wheels with painted accents that comes on the AT.  Want to also swap the grill for the AT grill if that isn't too hard to do but the first thing I want to do is put a leveling kit.   Any North Dallas area owners?  Where is a good spot to have a leveling kit installed?  I called 4 Wheel Parts in Coppell - they want about $600 for a 2.5inch leveling kit.   Is 2.5 inches right to level it out?   Thanks,

Loud audio buzzing noise

2014 / 2015 / 2016 Silverado & Sierra Issues, Troubleshooting, & Recalls/Service Bulletins 27 May 2015
On 2 occasions, I've noticed a loud buzzing noise in my truck. The first time it happened, I had unlocked my truck with the key fob and then opened the passenger door and I heard it as soon as I opened the door. It sounded like it came from the dash/radio area and lasted about 3 seconds. The second time it happened, I was sitting in the truck and then started the truck with the key and the sound felt like it was coming out of all of the speakers....I could feel the sound in the drivers door while my arm rested on it. Again it lasted about 3 seconds. Has anyone else experienced this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
