Courtesy of the GMC Middle East media page, we bring word today that GMC Middle has set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS. GMC's event is now the ‘largest parade of GMC cars’, ever recorded. The event was held in n partnership with the Abu Dhabi Police. Everyone knows that police love a parade. The event was held at Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. A group of 191 GMC vehicles created a four-kilometer-long parade on the track known to many Formula One race fans. The lead truck in the parade was a 2018 6.0L V8 GMC Sierra Denali.
Sajed Sbeih, Head of Brand, GMC, at General Motors Middle East, said, “ On behalf of GMC – globally, regionally and locally – I would like to thank Abu Dhabi Police and our local partner in Abu Dhabi Bin Hamoodah Auto for making this outstanding achievement possible. GMC is all about professional grade and we always strive to make extraordinary achievements to further enrich the brand’s heritage”, Sbeih added.
The previous world record for GMC vehicles in a parade was set in Kuwait in 2012 by a group parading a string of 181 GMC vehicles.
Hello, I looked 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 that I was interested in purchasing with the 5.3L V8 has 174,000 miles. Truck runs rough at idle, rpms are fluctuating. Check engine light is on with codes P0300 and P0301. Can’t troubleshoot the problem. Coils, spark plugs, spark plug wires, new O2 sensors, new catalytic converters. Guy says that rockers all move so it isn’t Active Fuel Management lifters and he says 150 psi of compression across all 8 cylinders. Truck was at dealership, dealership says problem with cylinder numbers 1 and 8 the P0301 explains problem with cylinder 1 but why isn’t code P0308 being thrown? What else could be the problem?
GM-forums, I dare say I'm back for a moment or so my darlings. I need help from you folks for a most troublesome squeal that's driven me nuts for quite some time. 'A squeal? Prolly you belt,' you might say. To that I'd answer with a swift and affirmative 'No! This is unlike any squeal I've heard before, and I can't seem to find any videos with a squeal like it. Both belts are quite young, and we've replaced a few pulleys. We didn't replace the A/C tensioner pullies however. Alternator and Idler have been replaced. This squeal is loud. VERY loud. It will pretty much drown out anything within its vicinity sort of loud. I'll try to get a video up if need be. You folks are my only hope.
I know a lot of people are running black rims on white trucks and blacked out black trucks and color matching etc. I decided to go old school chrome (lux) look. I made this happen on the front end by swapping out my black front bumper skid shield with the denali chrome one. I also as some of you may know, whited out my badges with reflective vinyle (see profile pic) and decided on chrome rims, exception, these rims are powder coated and flashed for the exact same look as chrome except they clean up just like paint. soap and water and wax.
So this may not be for all but it takes me back a bit while still be modern.
By the way, to remove this and replace. off comes the under grill molding, the radiator shroud, the front grill, the front bumper, remove both bumper backing plates remove and replace skid plate. i followed these instructions...
