So after the free oil changes I realized it would take at least an hour or a little more to get oil changed for 80$ Even with appointment. And each oil change the dip stick would say its 1qt overfilled.
so I decided to start changing the oil myself.
And In doing this I learned a big lesson late in life.
make sure the damn o-ring is still in the old filter! This has never happend to me ever! Embarrassing as heck!
Oil everywhere, luckily I was out by the old shed and not on my concrete. Had to clean up my toxic waste and now somehow clean the bottom of my truck.
So even after all that I'm still changing my own oil from here on out.
another thing I learned is that after 5k the oil filter gets really hard to get off. The old filter Deforms from trying to break it free it get so tight.
i use dexos o- 20w.
installed the Stampede Original Riderz texture 8626-5 fender flares. Instructions not the best, no videos from manufacturer. However, I am very pleased with the fit and finish.
The truck looks great and im sold.
I will be contacting their customer service to give them feedback.
My next search is for Mud flaps to go with the flares. I hoping I can use the Husky flaps.
Attached before and after pics
I fabricated true dual exhaust for my 2009 Silverado this weekend and have been plagued by horrible drone at 2000 RPM. cat back is 3" exhaust with x pipe right after cats and 10" flex pipes. dual exits before the rear wheel with 5 inch tips. Unsure if I should add a resonator and if so which one. don't want to loose the volume or flow but cant deal with the drone. will post pics of system soon. anything helps
Just recently I had my 4L60e go out on my truck (2000 silverado 1500). I've been too hesitant to go to a trans shop as I hear terrible stories and huge bills.
While debating my options I came across a diesel shop owner who said his friend had a 'built' 4L80 with a standalone system out of a 4wd like mine.
He wants $1000, I need help deciding if this is a good route that requires little fab.
Would this bolt right into my 5.3 and transfercase?
Is the length any different where I have to worry about the driveshaft?
Do I have to flash my ecu?
Any help is much appreciated!
