My solution to the oil filter. Except I put a zip tie around the nail and hammer head to hold it secure. 2-3 holes in the bottom of the filter and let it drain. with the short hammer, you don't need a ton of clearance to swing, and the nail pokes right through the filter, working the holes closer to you as you puncture.
Traded mine in for a 2021 10 speed because of it. Couldn't stand constantly feeling like I was getting rear ended. Noticed it mostly when the weather was hotter. Was outside the timeframe for the newer transmission fluid (already had it), and the TSB provided above is only up to 2018 Silverado, so I never took it in. I did notice if you let up from braking for split second, and starting braking again it didn't do it nearly as much. I had 19,000 miles on my truck when I traded it in.
Bummer it was worth a shot. Good to know Costco has some good prices.. next time I won't have to wait for GM employee pricing to get a better deal. Because our store just opened in mid November, Costco waved the Oct. 1st deadline. I just had to call the Costco Auto Customer Service number and they gave me the authorization number.
So... Long story short. I bought a 2021 Trailboss the other day, and recently we had a new Costco store open up in our area. At the dealers advice I became a Costco Member and they gave me the 1,000 Costco discount. Today, Costco calls me and asks if I saw the invoice, and if I saw the Costco Member price sheet? I assume I saw the invoice, but I definitely did not see the Costco Member Pricing sheet. Based on CostoAuto.com, the trucks are listed about $3,000 below MSRP. However, I also got the GM employee discount (not typical) because of the current promotion. Is it safe to assume the GM Discount is not on top of the Costco Members pricing? and that I did get the better deal. Or should the dealer have used the Costco pricing Minus GM Discount Minus 1,000 Additional Costco Savings? Looking to see what others have received, before I question the dealer. TIA
It'll wear of the carpeted mats over time. They are getting blasted all the time. Luckily you got it off the painted surfaces. We always recommend hot water pressure wash as soon as possible. It's cold enough in PA right now, they probably used regular dry paint. It's still water based paint, so soap and water should clean it off. Most likely the porousness of the carpet is holding the paint. You could try like a Motsenbocker's Lift Off Paint remover. I would definitely be very careful and test it in a small area.
I had the same issue on my truck. low coolant 4 times, once was a stuck actuator for the climate control. They finally did narrow it down to the evaporator, but only after it was dye/pressure tested, and they used a camera to navigate to and inspect the evaporator, before they dissembled the truck. I too was concerned, but I only noticed one trim piece not snapped on tight. One little push, and it was in. No rattles at all from the dash.
Yeah people bitched because no glasses fit in them, although mine did. So GM removed it. People bitched about no drivers side handle, and that the steering wheel was not centered. So GM centered the steering wheel, and added a grab bar to the drivers side. Now there's bitching about the grab bar being to close the steering wheel, and people hit their hands and/or cigarettes on them. In this day in age, you can't make anyone happy. I bought a $3 clip for my glasses that goes on the visor, problem solved.
I will now be on my 5th attempt at fixing it later today. Anyone ever get a resolution on the drivers side no AC? I've had 3 recharges, and 1 damper accuator replacement. No luck still, and no sign of the dye from the leak. I have a feeling my truck will soon look like truck pictured above.
