  1. 2019 Blazer - HOT OR NOT

    NOT? I only buy US or Canada vehicles. GM wages in Mexico are about $3 an hour, they save money we loose living wage jobs.
  2. My question was : If I don't see any difference in the way it performs, is their any reason to continue using the range? In other words, will the using the AFM shorten engine life on a 2015 5.3? Dave
  3. I need advice from a GM dealer mechanic: I installed a Range last month in my 2015, 5.3, 6 speed. It works as advertised and is always in the V8 mode. Drive ability is the same, you don't notice any difference. The problem is that the fuel mileage is down about 10%. Are these late model Eco tech 3 engines really having problems, like the earlier trucks? I am considering removing the Range, what do you think? Thanks, Dave
  4. 2015 Silverado 5.3, 22,000 mi. Mobil 1 0W-20 changed every 5000 miles, doe's not use any oil.
  5. Whats wrong with my truck? Built in Flint May, 2015, Brownstone metallic paint, 23,000 miles. Paint looks brand new, not a single rock chip. It does't burn oil, the transmission does't clunk, the Rancho shocks are fine. My only criticism is that the LT headlights were terrible. I replaced the bulbs with LEDs and got a huge improvement.
  6. I used Xenon Depot H11-LED- HL for the low beams. For high beams I purchased: PartsSquare LED Headlight Conversion Kit - High Power Philips Luxeon LED - 5000 Lumen - Copper Belt Heatsink - 9005 (HB3) / H10 (9145) from Amazon. The PartsSquarekit was about 1/3 the price of the Xenon Depot kit. Both have been working great for almost 2 years.

  8. I had the same problem with my 2015 Silverado LT. I replaced the bulbs with LEDs and I now have great headlights. Do the low beams first, as they make the largest improvement.
  9. 2015 5.3 with 14K miles. I have had three oil changes at the dealer with their GM Dexos oil. I use zero oil between changes even with a trip over the Sierra mountains towing a 6000 lb trailer.
  10. I have a late (May production) 2015 LT Z 71 4 wd, crew cab, 5.3, 3.42 axle built at Flint. This is my 7th GM pickup and the best one yet. I have not had any paint or quality items. The ride and seat comfort (leather) are especially good. Power is great, I towed a 62 Impala SS on a car trailer over the Siskiyou and Sierra Mountains to the National VCCA meet with enough power to maintain the truck speed limit on all the grades. Are these troublesome trucks assembled in the US or Mexico? My only complaints are the terrible headlights, I replaced the bulbs with LEDs and it cured the problem, and the city fuel mileage. The highway mileage is 20 to 23, but the city mileage is 13 to 14 on 89 octane fuel. Cold starts, hills and stop and go traffic will reduce the mileage. GM must figure that you wont drive in these conditions. I don't know anybody who fits this pattern.
  11. The 5.3 with the 3.42 axle is rated to tow 9100 lbs the same as the 6,2 with a standard axle. The 5.3 costs less, burns regular fuel and gets better mileage.
  12. Reverse Camera **UPDATE**

    Turn up instrument panel lights to get better camera image.
  13. 2015 Sierra Paint Issues?

    No paint problems on my 2015 Silverado built n Flint. Where are the bad paint trucks assembled?
