  9. I matched the front and rear GMC emblems to the paint. And I had to get a new tire at 2,481 miles because of a stupid nail in the sidewall. Debating on taking the Sierra off the tailgate and Plastidipping the chrome on the AT4 emblems.

  11. Raymond, if it was my 3.0L Turbo diesel I would act to make changes. I am retired from a 40+ year career of interpreting, testing, formulating lubricants, and fuels so I am sharing informed opinions here. Your analysis is the second in the last 2 weeks of this engine design ( which is a good one) we have seen here that shows elevated levels of soot and fuels dilution, although the other fellas data had poor fuel reading because of that labs technology limitations. Your soot is in question based on their reporting method. Recently I was shocked that Injection timing on GM diesels that incorporate timing belts can be off with no MIL code set and that evidence came from another customers diesel engine that for the life of us we could not figure out the fuels dilute and soot issues that made higher wear readings. Change your injection timing and nothing else will come into control. I am not saying thats the issue but if your air filter is not restricted at all then you have another cause. Belts can stretch and not show any other issues. ExxonMobil Diesel Efficient what you are using? If so continue it has some great additives for cleaning etc. Its not high cetane but its adequate for your needs. For now I DO NOT recommend adding any fuel additives and being in NJ the fuel should be winterized at least with flow improver from rack and may even have a cut of #1 diesel in it. Your iron is not the problem, it's a symptom , the soot and fuels dilute is increasing normal wear rates. Are you regenerating the DPF often? Another option is using the Amsoil DP 0w20 and see if that lowers wear by solving out the soot and protecting against the high fuels dilute. You have the right idea but the frequent changes aren't mitigating the issue but maybe masking it. I am just looking at your data to say that. Cheers

  16. I have a 2016 GMC Sierra SLT and went through the transmission shudder back in 2019 and the dealer did the flush at no cost to me now I had to go back this week for a P0711 TFT sensor / harness failure. I presented the special coverage # N192291660 to the service tech and he noted that this did not apply to the 5.3. When I asked him what is the difference we are talking about the 8 speed auto transmission the same as in the 6.2 to which he agreed. I called the division number for GMC 1-866-996-9463 and was told that there was a certain range of 6.2's that had this problem which made no sense to me what does it matter what size engine 5.3 or 6.2 and is beside the point. One thing for all GMC owners to keep in mind is that the average temp should be around 180 degrees plus or minus according to the load on the engine. I would suggest that if you are observing 135 degrees like I was should have brought this up before my warranty expired 6 months earlier this year, my bad. Anyhow I registered my complaint with the dealer and the GMC contact line.

  17. No worries. My experience driving a VW TDI for 20 years showed swings of about 10% between winter and summer. I mitigate the winter hit somewhat by driving my duramax more gingerly until it is fairly warm. I have about 2 miles of 35 mph followed by 3 miles of 60 mph before hitting a local expressway.

  18. That is the conclusion I came to also. https://www.jasperengines.com/ And since GM doesn't sell the rebuilt engine I need anymore, my Chevy dealer can order and install it for a decent price.

  19. Here is the part number off the GM site. Contact a local dealer to see if they can get you one. https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/gm-torque-converter-17804388?c=Zz1hdXRvbWF0aWMtdHJhbnNtaXNzaW9uJnM9YXV0b21hdGljLXRyYW5zbWlzc2lvbiZsPTUmbj1Bc3NlbWJsaWVzIFBhZ2UmYT1jaGV2cm9sZXQmbz1zaWx2ZXJhZG8tMjUwMC1oZCZ5PTIwMTQmdD1sdCZlPTYtMGwtdjgtZmxleA%3D%3D Otherwise you could contact a torque converter company and see if they can match you up with a converter that is just like the stock 6L90e. Summit racing, JEGS, Circle D converters may all have what you want.

  22. I believe the sensors since 2008 are on the side of the block just above and in front of the oil filter. easy to change out and check the wiring. Just did my driver side one while under doing my oil change in about a minute and a half. One connector and one 13mm bolt.

  23. Yeah, I don't understand that one either. Stumbled across some different ones that I had purchased for my other two vehicles' reverse lights. Putting them in between the time I wake up tomorrow and before I go back to work on Monday. They appear to have been shipped the same way as the last ones. Check the "CAUTION LABEL." (Sarcasm) I don't know if I should use them in my cargo lights.

  24. I have a 2000 Chevy C3500 cab and chassis truck (with a flat bed on it currently), single cab, two wheel drive, with the 5.7L V8 in it. I am trying to find a place to purchase interior trim panels. My panels are either ridiculously dirty or cracked and I'd like to invest in new panels to freshen up the truck as it's still in great working condition otherwise. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Surprised I couldn't find this from LMC Truck. Thanks!

  28. I agree, I'm sure that I'll find other mods/projects for mine that I have forgotten, while I'm cleaning out the garage this weekend. I have a "living document" that I have all of my completed and planned mods listed on. Mod titles get BOLD/ITALICS when they're done/complete, ITALICS when I have the parts to complete on hand, and regular font for what I would like to possibly do to it. Needless to say, the italics portion is LONG and growing. I usually put up our Christmas lights and our tree on the day after Thanksgiving, but with family coming in on Thursday afternoon/evening, we're doing Thanksgiving on Friday and decorating on Thanksgiving day and on Saturday.

  29. Did the same thing with my '15, they told me that it was "on par." It only seemed to idle roughly in gear, while in N or P it would purr nicely/perfectly. When I bought my '18, never noticed the rough idle, like my '15 had. What I have noticed is that I can feel the cruise control playing with the throttle more.

  30. Welcome to the site. He does not show the relay, but think it is close to fuse #48 if he can hear it clicking when he pushes the horn:

  31. I have a 19 LD LT. First, there is a goofy, bigger than normal, 3-prong big fuse on the passenger side fuse box which controls the in dash cigarette lighter. With the fuse in one position, the lighter is always on, with the fuse in the other position, the lighter is switched on by the ignition. This is what I am using for the ignition source for my interior relay for woofer, heated seats, and other improvements I am making to my 19 LD. The easiest way to get power into the cab from the battery is via the passenger side. There is a rubber grommet just above the upper passenger door hinge. Run a cable from the battery (also on passenger side) through the back top of the fender to the grommet above the hinge. This grommet matches up inside the dash to the side of the glove box. There is an interior access with a slight offset from the grommet hole the run your wires as needed for radios, lights, etc. I am building a custom console to replace the jump seat to hide the amplifier and sub-woofer plus add switches for heated seats and inside the bed lighting (I have tonneau cover). If you have questions, let me know. The cigarette lighter and storage area are easily removed with 3 screws providing access to the back of the cigarette lighter.

  32. I have a 2in motofab leveling kit that’s been great and accommodates my TIS 544, 33/12.5/22 with a little trimming and slight rub. Couldn’t be happier for $150.

  33. For the ones that have touched these lights, are the led bulbs replaceable? Truck is not here yet and would like to know if the bulbs can be changed out with white leds. I don't think the bezel is yellow as they look to be smoked/tinted, which I assume would have to make the bulb amber.

  36. Go with the AT4, you won't regret. I have had 2 diesels in the past. A LLY and a LBZ. Don't get me wrong it's awesome to be crusing down the highway at 65 and just rolling into the throttle and not having it downshift. The huge amount of tq is nice. I now have a 21 Trail boss with the 6.2 and 10 speed, and I must say the combo is nothing short of amazing! It is stupid fast for a big 4×4 truck and still gets great gas mileage. That AT4 will easily handle what you plan on throwing at it and you will definitely appreciate the ride and driveability of it everyday. If you haven't driven a 6.2 with the 10 speed you really should, I think that will help with your decision.

  38. It wasn’t structurally damaged, looked worse than reality. The flaking undercoating was the messy part. I’ll just check it each spring and clean it up. just sucks GM won’t use a durable metal treatment.

  39. Also, free oil changes lead to new vehicle sales. While getting oil changed, they roam the lot and then the next thing you know they buy a new vehicle. Getting them in for the oil change is another way to get them in to look and see what is new on the lot.

  40. Dealerships that give free oil changes do it because they also inspect the vehicle "free of charge" in an effort to get the customer to buy into whatever repair they discover needs doing. The business term for these free oil changes is "loss leader". The idea is if they give the oil change for free, and notice other repairs that are needed, they'll capture profits they otherwise would've missed by not getting you into the shop in the first place. Ironically, this is pretty much standard for retail businesses. I can rebuild anything on my truck, except the transmission, but I still take advantage of my dealers oil change offer because it saves me money.

  41. Looks awesome! I struggled with the front bumper, as it was my first time wrapping bumpers also. I pulled my sensors out and wrapped them as well. Very tedious and took longer than expected, trying different things each time. They ended up looking pretty good besides a few blemishes on the sensors themselves.

  42. Finally found time to wrap the bumpers. Took the front and rear bumpers off and fully disassembled them to make the wrapping easier on me as I have zero experience. Lots of work but overall I am satisfied. Wrap did lighten up a bit when stretched. But colour is close enough for me. At first I thought for sure I was going to paint the parking sensors, but after I wrapped the bumpers and installed the sensors I liked the silver. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  43. Has anyone used this PSI Power Tuner or found where others have used this? I found the product on two different sites; the 2nd URL has better details on the product. I'm skeptical on this product, being that no other tuners have released products for the 3.0L Duramax (LM2). PSI Power 2020 3.0L Duramax Performance Module (Truck Edition) | Thoroughbred Diesel Agricultural Diesel PSI Power Module 2020 3.0L GM Duramax (parleysdieselperformance.com) Also, what about these two products? https://afepower.com/afe-power-50-70064t-momentum-hd-cold-air-intake-system-w-pro-10r-filter#overview https://afepower.com/afe-power-77-44014-scorcher-hd-module#overview And this? https://www.sbfilters.com/cold-air-intakes/silverado-sierra-1500-duramax-3-0-intake-75-5137?variant_id=712

  44. The amount of BS lies that are in these forums on CAI is absolutely ridiculous and complete waste of money. There’s no bolt on that will guarantee such gains that a $400 tune couldn’t do much better. The computer is controlling everything. Here’s a forum discussing what’s already been proven over and over again. People with vast experiences and have yet to be proven wrong especially by newbies and wannabes that have ZERO Dyno testing other than their butts. May as well put a CAI sticker on your car, it’ll give you the promised mindful horsepower without a tune! https://forums.anandtech.com/threads/i-swear-ive-never-seen-more-idiocy-than-talking-about-cais-well-cept-gpus.2354022/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  45. What if we're a grumpy, younger individual? A CAI might add a bit of horsepower (a few) as you approach redline. How often are you up there? You're not going to see any appreciable increase in MPG. Considering how much money and effort auto manufacturers are putting in to eke out a bit more MPG (auto start/stop, air dams, active grill shutters, etc.,) you can rest assured that if a few cents per vehicle improved MPG, they'd come that way from the factory. Your truck has two valves per cylinder. That's your air flow restriction, and no CAI is going to fix that. But sometimes a placebo is worth its weight in gold...

  46. You will have some grumpy old individuals on here who will say it’s a waste of money but there are tons of research and proven data that states otherwise. I have an S&B on mine because they claim the most air flow and least restrictive out of all of them. Plus for $350 it was a great price. I like the RotoFab or GMs cold intake also. The cold air inductions intake and Corsa both use the bottom of the stock box. Ive noticed better throttle response with mine and have picked up a few tenths of sec with it and exhaust on my truck. Those are my facts. Good luck with your decision.
