    2011 Silverado LT Z71
  1. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    When I changed the oil a few days ago I noticed the sway bar links were broken. Borrowed the neighbors compressor and tools to install new ones. He was bored and wanted something to do so he decided to do change them himself. LOL He's a very cool neighbor. Took him about 20 minutes and then he was bored again. HAHAHA
  2. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Yesterday morning I noticed my oil change was coming up in less than 400 miles so I went ahead and changed it. Also dropped in a K&N air filter in this truck for the first time. Hear nothing but good things about K&N so I said what the hell.
  3. Range AFM Disabler

    Not anymore. Sent from my SM-T520 using Tapatalk
  4. I asked a knowledgeable person about running E-85 in my 2011 Silverado and his answer was as follows.... "e85 gives worse gas mileage anyway, due to the high alcohol content, and the stoich air fuel ratio of e85 is very rich at 9.0.. so you would lose a lot of mileage using e85..." I'm sure it has it's fans but from what this guy said I plan to stay away from it.

    Very nice photo.
  6. Range AFM Disabler

    I know someone looking for a Range. Has yours been sold or do you still have it?
  7. It's most likely the same technology but I'm sure it's their own module.
  8. I have an LT model that's very quiet. I can be playing the radio at a moderate level with the windows up, I won't hear an emergency vehicle until it's close to an intersection. Several times I've honked at cars in front of me for stopping because I didn't hear the sirens half a block away.
  9. New toy

    Purchased a new toy to play with, and to read the GM-Trucks.com forums, when I'm not driving the Silverado. It's an i5 with 24GB of RAM and a 4GB GTX 960 graphics card. To view what comes thru the machine I have two 27 inch HP thin flat screen monitors.

    Mines factory other than tinted windows and the tune. I have never been into heavily modding my vehicles, maybe one or two things at most. I once seriously thought about going crazy and having a good time but the wife likes it the way it is. The old saying... happy wife, happy life. LOL The only plan I have for my Silverado is buying a new CAI tube and a drop in filter, that's about it.
  11. What did you do with your truck/shop today

    Got an excellent deal on a Diablo inTune i2 through Auto Anything this past Saturday for a total of $319.95, it was delivered today. Updated the tuner and installed the 87 octane tune, disabled AFM and added stiffer shifts. Truck performs so much better with the canned tune. Going to get a custom tune from Lew after I hit the 150+ mark.
  12. I bought a Range AFM disabler nearly 3000 miles ago and have had zero oil consumption. I use 5W-30 Mobile 1 full synthetic. Before the Range I was using 1/2 quart every 2500 miles. Leave it plugged in 24/7 and haven't had any battery issues. The end of this week or first of next I am buying a Diablo inTune with a custom tune from Lew. I will be posting my Range AFM for sale when I get my Diablo.
  13. Here is an article I found concerning those 2 codes. Hope it helps lead to a fix. http://repairpal.com/OBD-II-Code-P0172-and-P0175
  14. The up and down at idle is completely normal. What codes, if any, is the truck showing? That would help a lot. This video is for an Envoy running lean but shows the O2 sensors in action.
  15. After 1,990 miles since installing my Range AFM disabler I have not used any oil. Checked the oil yesterday morning before starting the truck and was pleasantly surprised that it showed full. I am using Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 5w-30. Before the Range I had to add about a 1/2 quart every 1000 to 1500 miles.
