wmgeorge64 posted a topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500So I towed fine with my 2006 5.3 1500 Silverado, in fact towed a lightweight 17 ft fiberglass Casita all the way to Alaska and back. That truck did ok., Now with my 2014 with the same engine, but the wimpy 6 speed and towing about the same weight camper, under 3300 lbs dry and maybe 3700 with some water and some cargo in the trailer. Advise or concerns?
So this is the old long filter that was always an option at least on the 350 engine anyway, and I wondered why. Now the new trucks are using larger oil capacities it makes sense to use it.

wmgeorge64 replied to No Tyme's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Silverado & Sierra Accessories & ModificationsBoy do I see the liability issues with this, not only for the seller but the end user in case of an incident or accident.

wmgeorge64 replied to wmgeorge64's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500So what kind of parts and labor cost is involved?

wmgeorge64 replied to Adam Leinss's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500I was under mistaken idea that since these trucks have high pressure direct injection fuel systems that engine vacuum was not available?
wmgeorge64 replied to JacobC1983's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500On my trip home from Georgia it was driving me crazy with the clunk, delayed shifting and hard shifts, most when in traffic jams in Atlanta and Nashville. BTW you could not pay me enough to live and have to drive in those areas! I did not know when I could shift into the Manual mode so I just left it alone. Am I happy with the six speed, yeah I'm happy I do not have the eight speed!!
