  1. sorry to say I'm not a 3.0 anymore, I went to 6.6. My 3.0 was not liking my camper and I went with the safe towing option.
  2. I still keep looking for anything on this from GM, nothing. I did come across something other than the belt removal. I was watching part of the banks videos on YTUBE. The oil cooler is bigger with more cooling coils and its on the back of the engine. I'm not saying that is what it is but it is a new part put on the 20's. I have been looking at what the differences are and what could be making the noise. I started to think that cold oil going thru the cooler may not make the noise till it warms up and makes it till it cools down. Till its cold again and I don't get it when its cold. I will think things thru, that is till I either give up of find the issue. I have emailed a few places with questions and ideas and most of the time I get nothing in return????

  4. so this is the new truck, so far so good!
  5. the thump that I get like many other isn't there when started and comes on more as temp goes up, but no one knows what it is????? Some do it, others don't. Some say it goes away after the belt is off, some say it doesn't change. I got it at 400+ miles and would rather know what the problem is, not just a guess. My other 6.6 didn't do this so is it the motor/trans of fan?
  6. what is going on with this thread? Have they fixed it or not? Have they made any real headway?
  7. So there are a few options that I would like to have added but wondering if its possible. Like the power plug inside and out??? The brake controller has a wire there but the dealer told me no it can't be added??? Why? Cameras added for the trailer and work with the onboard system? More usb ports, wireless charging? Trailer tpms? Radio upgrade? If you have any info on these or other that you have had done, I would like to hear about it. I
  8. So the truck is doing well, I put on some AT tires, we go camping and most of the time its off the beaten path. The temps here have drop to low 30's and I have found it nice that it warms up fast. My other Duramax (6.6) would take forever.
  9. So I'll start this off. why did you get your truck with a diesel in it? What do you plan to use it for? Post a pic if you have one and fill us in on your options.
  10. great, let us know how it goes when you get it!
  11. I have a new 3.0 1500, traded in the 2.8 Colorado on it. So far I'm happy with it. MPG are about the same as a daily driver and have yet to tow so I can't say anything on that issue. I am getting use to not having as much on the truck, my LT Colorado had brake controller, safety stuff like the lane departure, following to close and the BT phone stuff seems to have been cut back on options. But I have a heated steering wheel?????? I'm still finding stuff that is different.
  12. I just picked mine up 2 weeks ago, I did have the 2.8 duramax but wanted more.
