  1. Let's not re-invent the wheel here. I would like to see documented iron clad proof ( not hear say or "I read it on the internet somewhere") of a case about an oil related engine failure caused by brands x, y or Z. Does not include never changing it or allowing it to run too low. I'll be waiting.................
  2. Mine started doing the exact same thing, driver side warm, I can "fix it" by turning the temp control to full warm and back to cold. 2014 SLT, looks like another actuator problem.
  3. Thanks for posting, I've spent the last 6 years searching for that drain plug. Looks difficult to access though. My method for servicing the cooling system is to drain the overflow tank once a year and refill with 2/3 gallon 50/50 Dexcool...........good enough for me.
  4. In case it hasn't been posted yet, while changing oil today I found another ground connection that needs attention, driver side frame next to the E-Brake cable. Same wax issue.
  5. In the past I used to routinely rotate my tires in the recommended criss cross pattern but I always noticed afterwards the vehicle would either pull to the left or right and/or tires would act out of balance and so on. Never had any luck with that method. Now I rotate them front to back same side when their about half worn down and I still get excellent life out of them with no funny business.
  6. I have the same on my white '14 SLT, I prefer chrome accents and bright work, some don't, that's ok too. I also added this to the ugly black tailgate handle. https://ibb.co/r7ct8Jk
  7. 2014 SLT purchased new. Shortly after, started having issues with power mirrors not folding, power pedals not working, power lumbar stopped working (dealer replaced it twice) bottom of driver power seat stopped working. Returned to dealer several times, they were able to get them working but stopped again after just a few days. Since then these items would intermittently begin working again, then stop. When I try to operate them, I can hear a relay somewhere clicking but no action. These are not life and death issues that I absolutely need to have work since I'm the only driver, my concern is a catastrophic electrical failure leaving me stranded on the the road somewhere. Any ideas ? Thanks
  8. I was using Mobile, recently switched to Supertech 0-20 Dexos approved. $15 for 5 quart jug as apposed to Mobile @ $25. OP, just get any brand you like as long as it's Dexos approved, there's not enough difference to loose sleep over. I just ignore the OLM, GM has their schedule, I have mine.
  9. Completely agree, I just had the dealer do a pan drop and filter change, none of that flushing crap for me. BTW they refilled with updated ATF, no issues works fine.
  10. I'm approaching 50K on my 2014 and would like to have my dealer do the service, pan drop and filter change only. From your own experience what can I expect to pay?
  11. I have to add a few ounces every few months on my '14 since new. No leaks, I'm not worried.
  12. My '14 has a similar issue....when the motor is still at low operating temp and at 55 to 65 mph, I can feel a buzz that comes and goes about 3 seconds apart but disappears after fully warmed up. Also did it before upgrading to new tires....weird.
  13. I have them and love them...smooth, quiet, drove in the rain once, no funny business, don't know about snow, I would take the "junk" opinion with a grain of salt.
  14. Yep, old myths die hard, just like back pressure is needed for an exhaust system.
