  1. Shake or Vibration Issues

    I’m guessing you’re dealing with torque converter shudder and not the dreaded Chevy Shake. Ask your dealer to perform the TSB which is complete flush, filter change, refill with new type fluid and reflash. Appears to fix most torque converter shudder problems.
  2. Shake or Vibration Issues

    I have the same problem with my 2015 LTZ 6.2L/8spd. I’ve had two reflashes, last one also had the TSB tranny flush. Fixed torque converter shudder. But, clunks and hard up/down shifts between 1st and 2nd gears still occurs. Interestingly, I had to replace battery a few months back and while fetching a new battery truck sat for a couple of hours with no battery. Replaced battery and shifting was very smooth till about a week ago. I tow a 6,000lb camper occasionally and my service rep says this confuses the tranny. Tranny shifts great when towing camper though. Guess I’ll just have to tow it when out and about running errands, sarc/...
  3. Shake or Vibration Issues

    I’m under the impression that the speed limiter is determined by the tire speed rating. My truck will only do 98 mph. Achieves this speed rather quickly then just smooths out and that’s it. Interested in what the max speed is for others. Factory setup, not tuned. I realize that these trucks with the speed limiter unblocked are capable of achieving considerably higher speeds than 98 mph.

    Try driving in tow-mode and see if that helps. Tow-mode holds the gears till a higher rpm is reached before shifting than when in normal-mode. It’s much the same logic used for sports-mode in performance cars. Anyway, give it a go.
  5. Who likes their 8 Speed?

    Yup, that’s what I was told. If I think of it next time I’m in my truck I’ll fetch the receipt and post the info for you. But, this info is already well documented on one of the other tranny forums if you’re really interested. Just do a search.....
  6. Who likes their 8 Speed?

    I had TC shudder at about 28K on my 2015 LTZ 6.2/8 spd. Took it in and had the TSB with new and improved tranny fluid performed. Problem was eliminated. At 43K now and all is good.
  7. First Drive Review: 2019 Chevy Silverado

    I’m guessing that pay-per-mile is not very far into our future. I haven’t totally thought this through but I’m kinda thinking some sort of two-track system may have merit. One track being the current method where we pay a road tax at the gas pump whereas by default heavier vehicles pay more per miles driven because their mpg is lower due to weight, gearing, etc. the other track would be for EV’s and perhaps hybrids which burns zero gas in the case of Ev’s or in the case of hybrids significantly less. Anyway, especially EV’s are getting off totally free on road use cost. As they continue to grow in popularity an equitable solution will have to be found.
  8. Well, not as trucks were used back in the day. But, don’t blame the oem’s for high cost of trucks. They’re merely building what customers want. General Motors' new trucks are trickling to consumers, selling fast https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/general-motors/2018/08/23/gm-sierra-denali-chevy-silverado/1062822002/?soc_src=social-sh&soc_trk=ma
  9. Yeh, I’m with ya. But, I’m old. When I was a young buckeroo I was into fast cars. I guess it’s a testosterone thing. Now, I just want a truck that will pull my camper and not kick out of cruise when climbing a grade. Hence, the 6.2....
  10. Imagine this, 2019 Corvette; “When it hits the streets next spring, everyone is going to see and hear it coming, and every Corvette and Chevy fan boy will be able to recite these numbers: 755 horses and 715 lb-ft of torque from its supercharged, 6.2-liter LT5 V-8 engine, with a top speed in excess of 210 mph. There are no 0-60 mph or quarter mile claims yet, but expect mid to high twos to 60 and mid 10s in the quarter”.
  11. First Drive Review: 2019 Chevy Silverado

    Well, there’s plenty of upside potential whenever the GM truck division gets around to it. The 2019 supercharged Corvette 6.2L is putting out 755 hp/715 ft-lbs with more room to grow...
  12. Don’t own a 10 speed but I’ve read that it’s designed to skip gears if it’s most efficient to do so.
  13. 106? Musta bumped the speed limiter up some. My 2015 Silverado LTZ 6.2L 4X4 CC will only do 98 mph when the speed limiter kicks in 😡.....
  14. First Drive Review: 2019 Chevy Silverado

    Agree, learned the hard way. Had a 2008 with painted front bumper. Misquite and cedar on my deer lease ate it up. Have only bought with chrome front bumper since.

    Aww, don’t be so sensitive. I’m guessing that you may be a young buckaroo. When, I was young, in the army, just getting started, etc, I bought some cars off of used car lots too. So, been there done that. But, just fyi, most car dealerships have a preowned certification program but they’re very selective about the cars they keep for this program, typically three years or less old and less than 40K miles. The older and high mileage vehicles are sent to auction where they’re bought by guys running the used car lots. You know, the guys who look and dress like Burt Reynolds back in the day, lots of bling, half open shirt, etc. maybe exaggerating a bit, lol! Anyway, hope you get your ac fixed soon. Noticed you’re in Waco, hot as blazes there 🤯....
