You are 5,000 miles out of the power train warranty-however some dealers (with GM's OK) will cut you some slack. Have you been to the dealer to see if there are any codes stored that may tell them where to look?
Yes-Here is what I believe -per GM's own statement that I linked you to the second chart is misinformation. And my own personal experience of changing out the Dex6 at 50,000 miles(25,000miles of that towing a 30 foot 5,500 pound travel trailer) and the fluid that came out looked as good as the day it went in. Granted-I didn't perform a UOA-but it looked real good. Not sure what these transmission temperature charts are selling-either new fluid or maintenance that is not needed.
2nd post down https://www.silveradosierra.com/transmission/transmission-temp-to-hot-t12797.html The facts being is that this isn't like the old transmission fluid chart floating around the internet-that says at 175 degrees your transmission is toast. Crankcase oil, transmission fluid and like has come along way in the last 35 years.
Yep-I have the same issue. My truck-with an MSRP of $54,000.00 at the end of the day just isn't very refined. Looking to another manufacturer next time around. It has like 34,000 miles on it. Going in to the dealer for it's last "at the dealer" oil change and to complain about "the clunk". That way-I figure if something breaks (in the drive train) -I'm covered.
CKNSLS replied to mookdoc6's topic in Silverado / Sierra & Future Vehicle Speculation & Spy ShotsWhile don't disagree with MOSTS of your assessments of the F150-the fact of the matter is that the front of the new Silverado is a "love it or hate it" situation. Meanwhile because of this the RAM has seen substantial increases in sales-precovid. I look for Ford to maintain the sales crown for a single model. (Notice I said single model and not combining the Silverado/Sierra sales). I have a 2018 SIlverado Crew Cab LTZ (4WD). It's a truck that had a MSRP of $54,000.00. It has the drive line clunking-the occasional "bump from behind" issue when coming to a stop (all issues that have been complained of by others-with no real fixes from the dealer)-and of course the reliable but lazy shifting 6 speed transmission. The mediocrity of this truck is so bad-I am going to look real hard at both RAM and Ford next time around.
If you search the number that begins with the "8" it comes up as a "bypass control module". https://perfectionistautosound.com/what-is-a-bypass-module-and-why-do-i-need-one/#:~:text=Bypass Modules Allow Safe Remote Starting Of Your Vehicle&text=When you ask your vehicle,chip%2C and the vehicle starts.

It looks nice. But Im not a fan of big one piece covers. Storage is an issue for some of us when we need the full bed. On the hard tri folds-for short trips to the bike path they fold up in front of the rear window and lock in place. For longer trips they come off and mine sits on my patio table. But your truck looks good!
I have a 2018-it does the same thing. Not all the time-it's infrequent and unpredictable. I have heard axle wrap, springs, or the torque converter not unlocking in the transmission until you are almost stopped. However-I haven't heard one solution for this. I going to the dealer for my next oil change, and it's on my list of complaints.
I don't have a relationship with the Body Shop people at any one particular dealership. That's kind of why I'm asking on here. BTW-the paint of my wife's 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe XL is better-and it had a MSRP that was $20,000.00 less.
OK-we all know the paint on the newer trucks stink and is prone to chipping. I am wondering how many of you have been successful in getting your hood repainted under the 3 year factory warranty? If so-did you take it back to the dealer you bought it from? And what did you say to have them warranty a repaint? BTW-I have a 2018 Silverado LTZ. It seems the paint should be better for a truck that at $54,000.00 MSRP!
