Truck started to make a squeaking noise this weekend, took it to the dealership on Monday. Dealership called Tuesday and said that they could not find anything wrong with the truck and that this sound is normal. Take a look at this video so that you can hear and understand what I am talking about. https://youtu.be/aERzjGAX-aU Does this sound normal to you guys? I also put water on the belt and the noise was persistent so it does not appear to be the belt. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Dwp_Silveraydo replied to Gorehamj's topic in The NewsroomI bought my escalade off their program.
Thank you for the reply, for all the great information, and for the product links. The only problem is that I know I will be hitting things with the valance as the escalade with be going through corn fields, down minimum maintenance roads, and some basic off-roading to get to hunting spots so I do want to remove it in order to protect the bumper and the valance.
Anyone removed the air dam/lower valance on an Escalade?? We got rid of our suburban so the caddy will be the new hunting rig!! I don't want to damage the valance or the front bumper like we did on the suburban.
I have a 16 Escalade with the 6.2 and on average I get 24 highway (best 29 MPG on 50 miles) and I usually get 18-20 MPG in the city. It all depends on how deep your foot is in the pedal. These trucks can get great MPG's if you feather the throttle but if you are romping on it you might see 15 ish averages.
Brought mine into the dealership last month for this problem twice. First time they tightened everything down in the rear end, took them an hour to do so. Then right when I got back into the truck and started to leave the parking lot, it did the same damn thing. Took it back a week later and they lubricated the leaf springs with some heavy duty grease and the clunk, clink, bang noise went away.Talked to the service guy and he said if the truck continues to do it, they can look into further options, or they will just need to lubricate the springs on a regular basis. A month later the truck is starting to do it again. If you spray some WD40 and coat the springs pretty good while getting the oil in between the springs it'll stop the noise for a couple of days until they get dirty. I also found that when the springs are wet they do not make the noise as the water is acting like a lubricant. Hope this helps.
I have the same steps and mine are peeling like a mofo. On the right front step there is a quarter sized area of paint missing. Did you ever take yours to the dealership to get them looked at for warranty repair?
Have a 2016 Silverado and was wondering if the truck allows for E85 use. Ive run E85 through it a few times before with no issues whatsoever but I don't want to cause any havoc that will ruin the motor or anything in that nature. Has anyone else been running E85 without any issues?
I have a 2016 Silverado Crew Cab and I have had a squeak coming from the rear driver side door. In my truck I have narrowed it down to coming from inside the door somewhere. Try opening the door and moving it back and forth without closing it to see if that is a potential noise maker.
