  1. Towed my 3.5k lb trailer over 12k ft passes in Colorado and all through Montana and Idaho with no issues. The gas is lower octane at higher elevations. 85 is considered regular. I paid for mid grade the whole time. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. Makes me want to but a 2018 so I don't have to deal with another generation that I don't want to touch. The roll out of afm was such a reliable success. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  3. Fuel Injectors ?

    $1,800 is the going price by the time you get 8 injectors, all the extra seals and gaskets required and the labor to really it all apart. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. Fuel Injectors ?

    Did they check for coolant leaks per pip5498? I had taken mine to a local mechanic to get the injectors replaced. He scoped the cylinders before replacing them and found coolant. We both called the dealer and I took it over to them. They agreed and replaced the whole driver's side top end under power train. My mechanic told me that the issue with the injectors is etching from the gas and carbon build up. He said that it is common across all makes that use direct injection. If you Google direct injection issues, consumer reports did an article about all car companies having a lot of issues. It also leads to carbon build up on the valves because the gas never passes over them and the techron cleaners never touch them. It is great for EPA testing, but long term causes issues. Also, if you get the BG fuel service done on a regular basis, it includes$2k towards injector failure. I am going to start doing that going forward since my bumper to bumper is done.

  5. If it is those codes, I would ask about pip5498 and make sure they are checking for coolant leaks. That is what was causing the error codes on mine. Tech said that it can occur at any point in the warranty period. How is your coolant level? If it is down at all, I would suspect that you have that issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

  7. Injector failure #5

    When I looked into doing, I looked up supercharger installation guides. Most of them detail getting to the injectors. Talk to your parts department because there are a lot of extra seals you have to buy. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  8. Injector failure #5

    I had coolant leaking into the clynders which caused my error code and my#7 injector to go bad. Because the coolant leak caused it, they replaced the driver's side injectors and head under power train warranty. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  9. 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
  10. #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
  11. #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
  12. #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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
