  1. I'm not here for a pissing contest, so with that said, you're right. Case closed Hopefully this link is ok to post, i reference gm literature but this is the same info http://www.duramaxhub.com/duramax-maintenance.html I've also beat my head against the wall about switching over to transynd fluid when I'm due for trans service, I'm still contemplating. Synthetic fluid that Allison says is good for 150k under all conditions
  2. I'll keep that in mind next time I'm at Midas and they sell me a $2500 brake job on a 20k mile car. Good thing I didn't go to the dealer, probably would've been $6000!!!! Some peoples misinformed opinion you'll never change, just don't try passing it off as fact, jack 🙄
  3. lugs are 120 I thought. Caliper bolts are just 'tight'. I'm sure there's a torque spec, but it's really not needed. Looks like I was wrong, 140ft lbs
  4. Last vehicle I drove if I wanted more than one flash I had to engage the turn signal switch. I'm more than happy with my three.
  5. I can't do it either. I've tried a few times, smoother down shifts for sure, but it's just habit- turn key, smack exhaust brake switch
  6. Not quite. As long as you have good quality def that meets this cert. you should be good, is what I got out of gm's response.
  7. if you order right when 18's are realesed, there are likely to be no incentives right away. if i remember correctly my truck was about a 2% increase in price from 15 to a 16
  8. i'm fairly certain we have waivers cust can sign off on taking unsafe vehicles off lot. if you offer to tow or trailer they should be willing, if everything is on the up and up. if you have any questions about the price, shop your local dealers. or even dealers around the selling dealer. the place not to ask for pricing advice is a forum. most people think most repairs should be less than $50 and take 5min at most, so anything more than $100 is highway robbery.
  9. Yeah go borrow your buddies hd and take a short trip with the tires at 75psi. Then take that same trip with tires at 55psi. Night and day difference. I don't want a 1500 Cadillac feel, but I don't need to knock a tooth out every time I run over a pebble either 😯
  10. Not to dig up an old thread, but after a year and a half of ownership, I finally hooked up my dads snap on verus scan tool, and it was able to lower the tpms threshold. Could choose a number of load ranges for the tires, and lower the tpms threshold all the way to 26psi. Just another option for those of you whose dealers won't recalibrate. If you know of a repair shop with a high end snap on scan tool (other brands may do it as well, I cannot comment on that) After a year and a half with a light and having to dismiss the notifications every ignition cycle, it's kinda weird not seeing it
  11. I couldn't say one way or the other on that, I never look at that screen. I just use the trip screen or whatever it is. I'm not too terribly interested if he is or not anyways
  12. Don't know what you're looking at, but the cruise isn't set. Can't even tell that he's moving, just that it's at 13-1400rpm. How's the view from that pedestal?
  13. In my opinion and experience, it's only worth taking the truck in for any problems you are currently experiencing. If you had a dash rattle on the second Tuesday of last December but haven't heard it since, that's going to result in a no problem found/ vehicle operating as designed at this time. If you go in with a dozen different complaints that you heard on the internet but are not experiencing in your truck, that's going to result in a pissed off tech that will hastily run through every complaint with a no problem found. (Not one person gets paid to look at imaginary problems under warranty unless there are failed parts which result in a replacement) Also if you go in and say you have no complaints, you just want to have it checked out before the warranty expires, every one involved in the chain of dealership rank will take an attitude and your truck will get pushed through very quickly with no repairs. Of course there are exceptions to every situation with individual dealers, but those are far and few between. Your best bet is to go in for an oil change. They'll most likely go through a multi point check list and should catch anything that is obvious.
  14. You've been considering for far too long 😛 Financially unable to trade in anyways, but my toughest time when I thought I would go for the l5p for a quick second was which one to go with. I've grown quite fond of all the small nuances of the Sierra, but the scoop, imo, looks so much better on the Silverado. With that being said, I finally saw a Sierra in person and looked better in real life, but I still prefer the Silverado look.
