  1. Update: The truck had the same issue yesterday, this time it made it to the dealership stumbling.....last time, it cleared up when I pulled into the driveway. The dealership wasn't opening for 1/2 hour, so I left it running.....stunk up the parking lot. Turns out that it needs a Lifter.....I asked "Is there any gas or water in the Oil"...........he said "It's not that bad, let's get it torn down and see what we have".......currently in a 2018 Tahoe rental. Camping trip planned soon, I hope it's ready, they say they can have it back in less than a week as long as they can get the parts.
  2. Good move......I'm sure his brothers shop would of done a great job fixing your truck
  3. 2500 to 1500?

    The one reason my wife won't let me back into a 2500.....I just make more trips with the 1500 one ton at a time
  4. 2500 to 1500?

    I've had some loads in the HD that the 1500 would of probably struggled with.....for instance, I loaded less than half of the bed in the 1500 with Pavers.....the HD would of done better job......plus all the process and sand for doing a walkway / patio just as one example
  5. 2500 to 1500?

    I regret trading my 2500HD for the 1500, and now the Wife won't let me go back. The reason for the switch was, we went from home ownership to townhouse living, so didn't need the capability of the HD....but now we are back to home ownership, and could that HD from time to time. You never know, better to have and not need, than need and not have
  6. Injector failure #5

    I had Injectors 1,3,5 & 7 misfire......Cyl 7, 6900 times....dealer could not duplicate complaint of rough running and CEL, so GM offered no fix.....just over 30k on the truck
  7. You would be driving down the road and suddenly the wheel would be pulled from your grip and change vehicle direction !?.....HOLY CRAP !
  8. Just to clarify.....when this happens, is it harder to steer, or do you lose total control of vehicle direction ?.....does the steering wheel "Lock Up" as if the key was removed ?.....can this happen just driving down the Interstate ?
  9. How many miles on that Cabin Filter ?
  10. Opinions on Kumho Tires

  11. #7 Cylinder Misfire

    Mine is a Lease......I would like to buy it out, not sure what to do now. Dealer said they would "Go to bat for me if it happened outside of Warranty". My past experience is that this would not be covered under the Driveline Warranty. What bothers me is the Techs notes.....6900 mis-fires from cyl. 7 ?......slight mis-fires from multiple cyliders performing test ?....no repair authorized ? "6900 misfires in cylinder 7. test drove and was unable to to duplicate misfires.Performed cold start test per PIP5498G and found slight slight misfires in multiple cylinders including cylinder 4 but nothing like what the guest experienced."
  12. #7 Cylinder Misfire

    Here is the explanation as written by the Tech on my truck....GM would not authorize any repair.....32k on the truck. Had real bad misfire and check engine and traction control lights on, and of course as I approached the dealership, all went back to normal... Scanned for codes and found PO300 passed. Check misfire data and found misfires in cylinders 1,3,5 and 7. 6900 misfires in cylinder 7. test drove and was unable to to duplicate misfires.Performed cold start test per PIP5498G and found slight slight misfires in multiple cylinders including cylinder 4 but nothing like what the guest experienced. Removed spark plugs and found no obvious issue with the plugs. Installed wire and plug and soaked in warm soap water and ran vehicle. No misfires. Called TAC opened case *-********* due to not having PO50D do not believe it is fuel injector. Instructed to duplicate to proceed"

  14. Cannot duplicate, so GM is not authorizing any sort of attempt of a repair, and I will be picking the truck up today. While it was in the shop, had a sales person look it over to see what the numbers are to trade for a new truck....just curious. Wife has lost confidence in GM, and is against me getting another.....I've had terrible luck with the last two trucks. Hopefully this is an isolated incident and it doesn't happen again...fingers crossed
  15. My Sierra is at the dealer for the past 3 days. Truck was misfiring bad, Check Engine Light and Traction Control Light came on.....lasted a few minutes, then went back to normal for about 30 seconds, then everything went back to hell, only to go back to normal a block from the dealer. Code being thrown was an entire bank of Injectors Misfiring, the Tech said he's likely going to have to replace all the Injectors.....now they tell me GM rejects any repair unless they can duplicate the problem.....so far, the truck hasn't had an issue while they've had it, and they want me to pick it up tomorrow. I carry my Wife and Pup in this truck and tow our camper.....not feeling all that confident in this thing. It has 32,000+ miles on it, and will bet it will fall apart just outside the 3/36 Warranty. Any input on issues or similar incidents appreciated.
