  1. I would basically replace everything on my 06 Avalanche and make it new again to get another easy 160k out of it.
  2. I have a 2006 Avalanche and I thought that's what transmission these trucks used? There are some variations in the transmission between the years so I would stick with a 05 4l60e.
  3. On my 2006 Avalanche I've been noticing the plastic wire loom has been breaking off exposing the trucks wiring. Found most of this in the engine bay but a few other places underneath the truck as well and in the cab. This actually caused me to lose my gas pedal position sensor. Might want to start taking a look at the wiring in your truck too. My truck is garage kept in the south but age gets everything.
  4. Had the exact same thing happen with my 2012. Heater went out causing the slow limitations of death. Part was covered under the extended warranty but was on national back order. Traded the Duramax in for a GMC 1500. Would love to get back into a Duramax but don't really want to deal with the emission systems again.
  5. Also gets my vote for the throttle body. Had this issue on a 2003 suburban. Cleaned the throttle body and there was some update for the ECU at the time and problem solved. Didn't have anymore issues with low idle after that. Every spring I check and clean my throttle body now.
  6. Just did this in my Avalanche. Filled both until fluid started to slowly leak out. Also did this for the transfer case. I'm sure there some more precise way to do it but I did this about 6000 miles ago and no issues thus far.
  7. I know you are looking for some other solution besides replacing the sensors but it sure sounds like that's what needs to happen. This tool you have, if it's like oem, you should be able to to hold in near the sensor and it will try to communicate with it. If it doesn't then that sensor has an issue.
  8. Individual experiences may vary. I had a 2013 and a 2014 Ram 1500 Laramie both loaded up. Loved those trucks and only had normal small issues with them. Would still be driving them today if I didn't feel the need to lose the payments.
  9. I know I own a GMC but I just traded off my 2015 GMC Sierra SLT Crew Cab with the standard bed 2wd for $36,000. I had 21k miles when I traded it in.
  10. I can change camps at will because I will go after what I think is the best at the time. I came from a Ram only because the 2015 I had was extremely cheap new. If I had the choice I would go to Ram again while giving the other two a good look as well. I aim towards Ram because of their storage compartments including the Rambox system. Check out this high mileage Eco Boost. They are out there.
  11. Am I the only one who stopped at "I changed the front hubs and noticed a slight vibration"? Sounds like you caused this with the hub install possibly? You didn't state if you had a vibration before or just bearing noise.
  12. I almost feel as if this is normal operation thanks to their harness. They use a relay setup I think so it would make sense the headlights would only come on with the ignition on. Rather than use capacitors to make up for the pulse width management they used relays. Personally if you have an SLT truck the harness they sell is over priced and over kill for what you need. You only need two small harnesses with built in resistors and capacitors along with the correct plugs to make the new headlights plug and play while retaining all normal OEM functions for your 2014. Zmnypit is the creator of the harness I am talking about.
  13. As far as the cluster yes it should have a temp gauge. I know the gas cluster without the temp gauge is a bit cheaper if a replacement was done.
  14. Can't comment on which circuit, though they had install instructions on the site where you buy the harness I think.
