  1. My father in law has one in the old generation and it is really cool. Dealers don't even believe that it exists. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. #7 Cylinder Misfire

    Just got word that they are replacing the driver's side head and injectors under warranty. Simi Buick GMC gives top notch service. If you are in the Los Angeles area, check them out. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  3. #7 Cylinder Misfire

    Now that the cylinder is clean, they are seeing a lot of oil and coolant in it. I took it over to the dealer and we will see what that say. Thinking I might be part of pip5498. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. #7 Cylinder Misfire

    I too am having misfires on 7 on my 2014 5.3. Mostly at cold start. Have it at a private mechanic who is testing a lot of d different things. Pip5498 is if you are getting coolant in the cylinder. Could still be a clogged injector. Mechanic said that there is a lot of carbon in my cylinders. He can see black rings around the injectors. He said to definitely regularly use techron in the fuel. He did multiple compression tests at different temperatures and it is holding. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  5. The 5100s aren't designed to be used with a spacer. Check your paperwork that cover with them. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  6. Fuel Injector Replacement/ Intake Removal

    I have also got the p219a error code now. I am thinking that it is related. Would an induction cleaning help or do I just need to have the injectors replaced? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  7. Fuel Injector Replacement/ Intake Removal

    Thanks. It is my understanding that the fuel rail is under the manifold. The only cleaner i tried was the bottle from Costco that you put in your gas tank. I think it is by Chevron. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  8. I am fighting a P050D error code on my 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3L V8. I am having trouble finding info on the process for replacing the fuel injectors. I am reading that the intake manifold needs to be removed. What is the process for removing the intake manifold? What parts do I purchase beyond the injectors. Is this something that I can do easily in my garage?
  9. DC vs CC. What made your decision?

    Double cab so that I could get a 6.5 ft bed without special ordering and saving $4k. More comfortable to sleep in when hunting and I like it better for happing lumber and stuff when we go camping. Will probably geta cc next time now that I have a kid. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  10. Warranty Service

    My buddy has a 2010 Silverado that is having AFM/ misfire issues. He had purchased the GMPP for 7 years. When the P0300 error code first came up and he took it to the dealer, the truck was still under the extended warranty. They told him that it just needed a tune up and spent $600 and got it fixed. The issue came back again in November with the same P0300 error code when a different dealer charged him $600 to replace the valve covers. Now, the same code is back again and they are saying that he needs to spend $8K on a new engine. The truck only has 61K miles on it. Between the original trip to the dealer and now, it has been 11 months and 6K miles. My question is if you report an issue under warranty and then the warranty expires, how long do you have if the same issue keeps coming up? We both feel like they should cover the repairs since the issue arose and was reported while the truck was under warranty. It has been the same error code every time. Is it the regular 12 months, 12K miles that most serve carries?
  11. Choosing Baby Car Seats

    I liked the chicco key fit 30 for an infant seat. Evenflo has a great auto racheting system that makes install easy. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  12. AFM is AWEFUL

    This tsb is showing as being for an equinox/ terrain. Do you have one for a Silverado? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

  14. Ford Free

    My wife has been a life long Ford person. We just traded in her Ford escape for a 2018 Denali canyon with the turbo diesel. It was driven by the dealership owner for 5k miles so we got it for $10k under sticker. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  15. Yay or Nay

    I don't know. The guy at my Chevy dealer has said that they did. He knows everything about Chevys including how many lug nuts are on a 2008 Cobalt and what plant they were made in. Maybe the 6.0 is better. Beyond the engine, there are still other unkown maintenance issues you can be inheiriting. My first 2 GM trucks had about 100k miles on them when I bought them. In the end, I wished I had saved my money and bought a new truck instead. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
