  1. 2007 sierra 5.3 purchase

    No. I had an 07. Worst truck I ever owned. Expect to have to rebuild the engine or replace it. Using an afm disabler wont help at this point if the previous owner hadn't been using it. The damage is done. . Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. Car seats

    It is a booster seat till they are 15. [emoji3] We left her backwards facing till she was 2. It was only about a year between the bucket and forward facing. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  3. Car seats

    The question you have to ask yourself is how many kids are you planning on having and how long are you planning on keeping your truck. I would have loved to buy a crew cab, but I didn't want to spend the money for a 1 year inconvenience. My wife needed a new car and mine was only 2 years old. We dealt with it for just over a year and flipped her around as soon as she was big enough. This was only really an issue between when she out grew the bucket and when she could be forward facing which was about a year. Now it isn't an issue. The belted booster is awesome for small backseats. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. Spray-in Liner Weight

    I would guess less than 20 lbs. Probably 1 gallon of material. If you look up the song weight of the roll on bed liner, should give you a decent estimate. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  5. Even though it is only an extra$2500 MSRP, will see what the rebates are like on them. I would have to imagine they aren't going to offer many deals on the diesels. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  6. Car seats

    I was able to make a Maxi-cossi fit in my double cab. There aren't many that will rear face on the passenger side. You need something semi narrow and short. A large car seat like the Graco 4ever wont fit. Wish they would have put the latches in the center seat. I ended up rear facing on the center seat with the belt. The diono is a great forward facing car seat, but didn't fit well rear facing. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  7. Have they given an indication of what the mpgs will be? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  8. Fuel injector replacement

    There are quite a few threads on it. Injectors are not part of the power train warranty. If you have p050d, check with the dealer before replacing injectors because you might have a leaky head that there is a pip on. Another guy went threw and replaced the injectors himself only to find out that he had the leaky heads. He did a good right up on the process of replacing the injectors. Midwest Denali I think is his username. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  9. Yes, that is all you need to do. I used the impact to get out to the point that the shaft started spinning. Then I used an open end wrench 15mm for the Bilstein nut and 18mm for the factory plus a key for the to of the strut. A crescent wrench should also work. It is a pretty simple fix.

  10. Switch the castle nut back to the OEM nut. Fixed mine. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  11. Understood. I was thinking that the mileages in the op we yours. It amazes me how few dealerships recognize the importance of service departments in making future sales. I think the issue is that there is so much turnover in both the same departments and dealership ownership that they most likely won't be around when it is time for you to buy another truck. The dealership that I bought both my truck from has a new service department, new ownership, new managers and new sales people within 6 months of buying. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  12. It should be covered under your power train warranty if is the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  13. They replaced the driver's side head and injectors. My oil was also not milky and the coolant usage was minimal. It is a pin hole leak. It basically is seeping a few drops of coolant in when it is sitting that gets burnt off at startup. It is very minimal, but enough to cause a rough cold start and kill an injector.

  14. Knock on wood, 10k miles later and it has fixed the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  15. Inverter that is in our GM's

    Coffee pots actually pull a decent amount of amps due to the heating element. The average coffee maker is 600 to 700 watts. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
