I had a 2005 CCSB GMT800 truck with rear vents in the console, its the exact same the rear vents will only get air if set to floor for the rear passengers, you not moving enough air, GMT800 cooling system was horrible, today cooling down the cab with the current system is fine. If want to make a difference with the rear passengers install ceramic window tint. & sound deaden/insulate your truck especially the damn roof.
Recently I got my A/C compressor replaced, no dryer was replaced? red flag!!! I noticed on the warranty paper work that the dryer was not listed, when I asked the service director & dealers team leader in the shop, about why no dryer was installed, I was told is b/c its not needed. I was completely baffled! Keep in mind I was a ASE and Mercedes Benz master certified tech... with a 609 cert. If that means to anyone b/c they kept throwing in my face we have WORLD CLASS MASTER TECHS... just laughed b/c as a Master Tech my self I was like its kind of funny but whateve's. looking for GM technical help here about why a dryer is NOT replaced when the system is open especially a compressor replacement. not 100% sure but it appears that the dryer is sold separately from the condenser unless it requires condenser replacement any GM techs willing to provide some info.. so I had the grille off, getting access to the bottom of the condenser requires one to R&R the condenser. Thanks
I have the GM Borla kit (Touring), GM part number made by Borla, love it! nice and quite under curise and towing. The link shows a pic with the old I pipe with the bypass, make sure if you order a new exhaust you get the newer style pipe, makes a big difference in sound, also older stock valve makes a rattle noise after some time, so glad Borla made an improvement even over GM's 2 design. Just sale the Borla online or local.

Hey guys, looking at this for my 2016 GMPP General Motors Protection Plan 84/100,000 $3,700<- seems really high. Truck is 2 years 3 months old this month with 6,500 miles (that's not a typo, I dont drive it much 6,500 miles). Any help is appreciated
OP, its just a wax coating, its soft and will come off in places especially where anyone will lift the vehicle by the frame and is scraped off in the process. Just order a of case of 12 cans of nox-rust wax, I do roll under my truck from time to time, I always check it and apply wax here and there as needed, 2 years old still on 1 can. https://www.daubertchemical.com/store/product-list/corrosion-prevention/nox-rust-x-121b
I used this this when I was tech... not GM vehicles. My dealer would order it from GM b/c it works great. Side note, you guys really need to stay off youtube when it comes to BS people say about seafoam/CRC. Especially BG products junk junk junk We used this stuff back in the day = GM part #1050002 (Dont think its made anymore) I would call GM and verify what your local shop is using. = GM Top Engine Cleaner example : AC Delco ACDelco 10-3007 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007Q102AE/ref=sxbs_sxwds-stvpv2_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=3233965245922079678&pd_rd_wg=ypp9n&pf_rd_r=MH22YDMPEN6MP0G3W8B2&pf_rd_s=desktop-sx-bottom-slot&pf_rd_t=301&pd_rd_i=B007Q102AE&pd_rd_w=jxXrH&pf_rd_i=88861803&pd_rd_r=14c68c75-48e8-4029-bb03-5ccea7eb4cce&ie=UTF8&qid=1530580751&sr=1#customerReviews
Ceramic window tint... you'll thank me later. You dont need dark tint for it to work well, especially with infrared heat, light is also cut even at 70%(which btw is what your windshield & front side windows are factory). plus it is more clarity than standard/carbon at the same level of light transmission. When sitting now my truck used get about 140-160 degrees with carbon window tint, now today it was 100+ it was only 110 in the truck that's much easier to cool down and keep cool while driving, ceramic worth every penny even the cost of stripping the 2 year old carbon off.
Unless a dealer tech has more info, otherwise this is about as good info as I have. This PAG oil (ACDelco 10-5026) is pretty much used on all GM trucks (newer style compressors GMT-800, 900, K2xx) est... 2001-2016 with = refrigerant R134a ACDelco 10-5026 Air Conditioning System PAG Oil - 8 oz Cartridge https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0012PCTKQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 ^^^ Best price I have seen so far. However 2017+ trucks use refrigerant =1234YF which requires a different pag oil my local dealership was not able to find me a part number, Side note Mercedes Benz recalled 1234YF, do its highly flammable nature. To think it was bad when Telsa's caught fire in front end wreaks. Enjoy the burn 2017+ owners. However 1234YF has a much much.... much lower global warming rating like 1 I believe, vs R134a which is about 1,430 rating.
Its a controlled leak, its not a question of if! but when? Don't forget about maintenance, sunroofs should be cleaned and lubed yearly how may of you do that? Most sunroofs channel the water to the rear (sometimes front or both) drain tubes, the tubes are typically routed down the B, C, D pillars of the vehicle to drain water. The sunroofs glass rubber seal gets old, sun/ozone damage, dirt & sand get in behind the seal, wet dirt and sand turns into mud, see where I am going. Sunroof motors fails, track system its bound up/jams, I have worked on so many convertibles, vari-o-roofs, sunroofs, panoramic roofs, I will never order a glass roof in any automotive vehicle. Sunroof lowers the headliner height, so taller folks, it may create a problem, esp with cowboy style hats, work hats/helmets. I happily ordered my truck without a $900 hole. Working or not, its something I never have to worry about. As I stated, I'd remove it from production vehicles in favor of A/C heat in the headliner. You want a sunroof buy a convertible or vari-o-roof. IMO its your money you do what you want.
