  1. how to remove air duct

    Deep creep & a pair of pliers?
  2. Let mine get up to at least 160 F before I put a load on the engine. Oil is definitely circulating by then, but more importantly the different metals have expanded sufficiently by 160 and above.
  3. My 2007 5.3 sits steady at 210. Never goes over.
  4. 4L80E problems

    Oh just being a transmission specialist / rebuilder for well over a decade.
  5. 4L80E problems

    I had a similar issue with my 4l80e. Put a larger cooler on it and the same thing happened. There is a temperature sensor in the transmission. When the trans fluid goes below a certain temp, torque converter lockup is canceled. When the temp goes above that temp, it is re-enabled. When your torque converter is in lockup mode, the transmission is in a "cooling and overdrive planetary lube" mode. With the larger cooler it is going below the temperature range that allows this when in lockup. Not going into lockup with the 4l80e due to over cooling will not damage anything. It will just affect your mpg.
  6. Stock speakers are known to be crap. They either go out or are intermittent. Usually a simple fix: replace your speakers. Go with a better quality and it will sound better than the originals ever did. For more info on this issue and instructions for replacing with aftermarket speakers, search the forums. It's been covered several times.

  9. What do you do for work?

    10+ years custom transmission building. For hire live & session musician. Now self employed ground penetrating radar business & computer, web, smartphone repair/modding business. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  10. It's all in the prep work and quality materials. Prep the metal properly, use a high quality heat resistant primer and high quality automotive paint. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  11. Well that sucks. I wish I wasn't right for your wallets sake, but that's how it happened for me too. Glad you got her back on the road. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  12. Are you getting any messages when you turn the key on? Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  13. I don't know why changing speakers would cause that, but it sounds like when my BCM fried. I disconnected my negative battery cable to replace an alternator and belts. After reconnecting the battery terminal I got the same as you. Had to tow it to the dealer and something had supposedly shorted in the BCM so it had to be replaced. $483 to replace & program. If you're lucky they might be able to reflash your BCM if they can communicate with it - if that ends up being your problem. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  14. Dyno loss.

    The 4l80e will definitely hold up better with the higher HP & torque. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
  15. How many miles were on your truck? You mentioned it was a few months old. There might be a chance that you didn't have enough miles on it yet and the computer was still in break in which doesn't allow full power. Just a thought. Sent from my Galaxy Nexus using Tapatalk 2
