  1. I'm glad to hear it's a PF 48 . If you google my truck it said it takes a PF 61. Parts store said it was too. Thanks again.
  2. First oil change, i picked up a PF 61 E AC.DELCO oil filter, it doesnt fit. This is what its supposed to be. The filter i took off is a PF 48 E with a red label that ive never seen a red label before. The diameter of the threads on the PF 61 E is too small and will not screw on. I had a PF 48 E from my other truck which is an 09 GMC 6.0 and tried that. The PF 48 fits tightens and had no leaks. Only difference was the PF 48.E was a 1/4" shorter than the PF 48 E that I took off the truck. Any idea why ? I would like to figure it out. I'm going to the dealer to have them decipher the vin. #. Does anybody have any idea why ? Thanks for your input. The picture attached is the filter I removed.
  3. Has anyone changed a bulb for the driving lights on 19 gmc sierra 2500. I'm hoping someone has done it with out taking the bumper off ? I didn't even bither looking at the right side. Thanks for any help you can provide.
  4. Check the distributor. The shaft wears and causes that condition. Had an 87 5.7 blazer that would die if left in gear at idle. Put it in neutral and it was fune. Truck had no other symptoms but stalling in gear at idle. Pull the cap and check for play.
  5. I looked at the other posts but didnt see anyone ask. Brand new truck a week ago and it has the dreaded tire shake around 70 m.p.h. It has almost 600 miles on it. Is there a T.S.B. for this ? It's a 2019 2500 HD double cab 4x4. It has the 20" wheels with good year wrangler sr-a's. I should have just kept my 09 Thank you.
  6. Looking for winter wheels and came across a set of 17`s from a 2012 GM 2500 HD W/T. The 2019 has 265/60/20`s. Will they fit ? Thanks.
  7. Much , much better looking. Im still going to try and pick up a 2019 but I have to wait until I get my bike sold . A bit of plowing money would be nice too Buying a 2020 sierra could happen if I run out of time to get a 2019 .
  8. I hope its better looking than the 2020 Silverado. Does anyone know what cut off date is to order a 2019 ? I heard the 2020`s will hit the lots in mid 2019 and a dealer told me the cut off date to order a 2019 was December 2018 ? Does that sound right ? Thanks
  9. O.M.G. Im so sorry I said that. I didn't know you would be so offended. lol Their obviously not listening to anyone. Hope you feel better now. I did say I was guessing.
  10. Disgusting ,An absolute a disgrace. It looks like they hired a former ford designer to design this hideous truck. I imagine the back will look like ford like the 2019 half tons do now. I`ve been looking for a 2018 GMC and there are not a lot left and I was told that you can only order 2019`s until December 13th 2018 , then they are going to shut down to retool for the 2020 . If that's true then there wont be a lot of 19`s around. It makes no sense because what are they going to sell for the rest of 2019 ? I`m hoping they don't ruin the 2020 gmc, if they do then I will not be buying another gm truck. They are going to lose a lot of sales with that look.. I`m guessing they don't take any ideas or suggestions from actual customers that use trucks for what they were originally intended used for. I guess there listening to soccer moms and such that don't need but want an HD truck.
  11. 2009 GMC 2500 HD with a 6.0 gas engine. Engine light came on today and it has multiple codes. They are P0135,P0030,P2272,P2271,P0138. Some are for 02 sensors and others for knock sensor. Can anyone tell me if there is a relationship between the 2 sensors, like is one of the sensors causing multiple codes for both sensors or are they totally separate issues. I replaced a knock sensor on the passenger side over a year ago, the 02`s are original. truck has 47,000 miles on it. I just don't want to replace all the sensors if its just say it`s the o2 sensors causing all of them ? Thanks for any help you can give. Mike.
  12. FIXED !!!!!!! I put the new relay in and of course it didn't change, I wasn't surprised. I worked for a repair, tow place some 15 years ago that changed hands. I wasn't sure if the new owner would help me out, so I went there and explained the situation. Long story short it took less than 15 minutes. It had a bunch of abs hard codes. He cleared them and low and behold the warning on the dic was gone, hooked it up to my trailer and the brakes work. His opinion was when the factory plug got water in it set off the codes. Best part is he didn't charge me. I threw him $40. bucks and threw $20. to he mechanic. All in it cost me $ 90. bucks. and that if he needed an extra driver to cover police calls and he would still cut me a percent of any calls. Well woth it and now I have a reputable shop for the future. Thanks for your tips and ideas. Mikey J.
  13. The relay i refer to is not one you would buy to use for wiring aftermarket fog lights. The truck is eqipped with a factory installed set up. If you google 2009 gmc brake relay you will see its not what you think it is. As far as testing with or without a trailer , you do not need to have a trailer connected. My problem is on truck side . With or without a trailer i get an error message (service trailer brake system ). Its a problem with the factory installed brake controller and or its components. As far as adding a factory controller,hes right its not just a controller. Theres alot more to it and you probably wouldnt want know what it would cost.
