Drained out the excess oil. Took like 15 minutes. We will see how she does from here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I mean, all oils I have changed in every vehicle I owned have had a slight fuel smell in the oil. Its just the nature of a gasoline engine. I'm just gonna drain some oil out and be done with it. It seems like a non issue for me. I have the powertrain warranty for 5 yrs/100,000 miles anyway. So if it does fail, it will be on Chevy.
So the diagnosis for this problem is high oil level and fuel smell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I changed the oil in my truck and filled it to the top of the hatched area on the dipstick. A few weeks later I checked the oil again and it was about a quarter of an inch above the hatch area. I wonder if I have this problem. I have a 2015 with about 30k on the clock.

dave07 replied to dave07's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I think I’m not going to attempt due to the reasons that were listed above. Some places around here charge $25+ to mount and balance tires! This gets expensive when me and my wife both have sets of winter and summer tires for our cars. Luckily there is a Costco near by that does $10 a tire, appointments are usually 2 weeks out though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
dave07 replied to SirenRed16's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I said this earlier in the thread. I know with cars they typically lower the roof for structural reasons when adding a sunroof. I’m sure it’s the same way with a truck. They could possibly add some bracing that you can’t see to beef up the structure. You could change the whole dynamics of your truck in a wreck. This is one of those mods you should pass up for safety reasons. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
dave07 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500Does anyone here mount their own tires? I saw some videos on YouTube with people manually mounting tires with pry bars. It really didn’t look that bad, I was thinking of trying it myself. Thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I would not do this. If you roll over or have any other type of crash, expect to be a meat pancake.
I agree as well. It’s my first oil change that I’m doing my self and I know the dealership guys crank them on there so I want a wrench just Incase it won’t come off by hand. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
So the 76mm x 14 flute does NOT fit the OEM filter. It’s slightly too big! I think it might be a 74mm size filter wrench. This is the PF63e filter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Will that fit the OEM filter as well? Maybe I’ll just take the filter to advanced and see what fits. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

A lot of places will check your alignment for free. Maybe you can start there. Alignments aren’t that expensive, they usually are around $100 for a 4 wheel alignment. Food for thought. I had my Camry get an alignment, about a month later I replaced my bad struts and did not get an alignment after that. About a week ago, the car was in the shop for a state inspection and they gave me the alignment report. The alignment was spot on. So in my case I didn’t need an alignment after replacing the struts.
