  1. I am totally having the Ravelco anti theft device installed. Damn thieves...
  2. I just wanted to throw my 2 ¢ . I purchased and installed an Elite oil catch can. I can share pics later but I bolted it where the brake booster is and you take off the PCV hose and install it. It grabs the extra oil and keeps it from building up on the valves. I think these should be standard on any direct injection engine. Here is the link in case you were interested. https://www.eliteengineeringusa.com/e2-catch-can/#
  3. This is an old post, but I wanted to add my 2¢ to the subject. I recently purchased and installed the Range Technology AFM disabler. My truck stays in V8 mode all of the time now. No more jerking when you speed up. I installed it due to fear of lifter issues in my 5.3 V8 engine. I love it so far and is just plug in and forget. That is unless you won't be driving the truck for awhile, then you need to unplug it to eliminate any battery drain.
  4. Sorry, posted twice....see previous post.
  5. I just wanted to throw my log on this fire. First off, I purchased my 2014 Crew Cab Z71 in 2014. Withing a few weeks I felt the seat moving when I took turns. At first I wasn't sure if it was just me or the seat. I finally had my dealer look at it. It took three separate trips to finally get it fixed. They installed new shims. So fast forward six years later and it started showing its ugly head again. My truck is no longer under warranty, so I began thumbing through this forum. I saw the post about hose clamps and was very skeptical. I decided to try it this weekend. I did what someone posted about by purchasing two hose clamps and two of the braces with the rubber. I tried installing them but I had a hard time getting the clamp started. So I removed the rubber and installed the clamps right next to the white plastic pieces. I went for a test drive, and to my surprise there was NO movement!! I took several hard left and right turns and it was solid. I came home and used my ratchet and socket to make sure they were really snug. This is so awesome. Now it is sad that we spend 45k on a new truck and end up going ghetto with hose clamps, but if it works it works. I am very happy. God bless the person who gave us this fix. I am so proud of this forum. I have posted a couple things I have done and I trust they are helpful. If your powered drivers seat is moving when you make left and right turns, grab a couple 1" hose clamps and look under the front part of the drivers seat and you will see a white plastic piece on a bar that runs horizontally. Place the clamp on the outside of each white piece. Snug them down and you will no longer have the undesired movement. I hope this was not too long, and helpful to anyone with this issue. ~Be blessed.
  6. Hi guys and gals, I thought I would post a couple videos from my experience adding foot well lights to my 2014 Silverado Z71 crew cab. The first is the process of installing them. The second video is post install and just shows the end product. I hope you enjoy and I can answer any and all questions you may have. First video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9obEDUNUutI&t=74s Second video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ2Qgq2mNX8 All the best...
  7. Ok, found this: https://www.chevroletpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/gm-washer-nozzle-23181646?c=Zz1ib2R5JnM9d2lwZXItYW5kLXdhc2hlci1jb21wb25lbnRzJmw9MSZuPVNlYXJjaCBSZXN1bHRzJmE9Y2hldnJvbGV0Jm89c2lsdmVyYWRvLTE1MDAmeT0yMDE0JnQ9bHQmZT01LTNsLXY4LWZsZXg%3D Washer Nozzle - GM (23181646) 2014-2020 GM
  8. Thanx guys! I just wanted to help out my fellow Silverado owners. As far as the part number, let me see what I can find. I didn't keep the packaging. I appreciate your positive feedback!!
  9. Guys, I thought I would share a video I made regarding the washer spray nozzles. One of mine would not spray washer fluid onto my windshield. They are super easy to replace and only cost around $5 a piece. Here you go: Peace! ; )
  10. My 2014 Silverado Z71 crew cab was built in May of 2013 and was assembled in Mexico. The first six months it was at the dealer a lot. Driver seat issues, dash rattling, GM recalls etc. I love the truck but when and if I ever sell or trade it in, my next crew cab Silverado will be born in my hometown of Ft Wayne Indiana.
  11. Guys, just an update on this issue. To recap my issue was ,with heavy rain, water was dripping down and would puddle under the dash just above the parking break area. After two unsuccessful visits to the dealer, I decided to work on this myself. On the satellite radio antenna a.k.a. shark fin antenna, if you look at the base on this antenna, in the back there is a small rectangular open slot. The water was coming in there. So I started to think to myself why it never leaked when it was new. About 18 months ago, I had a leveling lift kit installed. My theory is that this somehow changed the dynamics of the truck and water would enter in this slot easier. The fix was very low tech. Placed painters tape around the base of the antenna and then put a bead of high quality clear silicone around the entire antenna and made sure that the slot in the back was also covered. It has been a couple months now with heavy rains and absolutely zero leaks. I hope this helps.
  12. I am currently seeing the exact thing on my 2014 Z71 crew cab truck. I love my truck, but the dealer has had it for four business days and says they cannot see a leak. I am going to have them check the antenna on the roof. God, I hope that is all it is and that there is no other damage inside the roof. I am sick and angry at the same time. This should have been found before the truck even showed up on the dealer lot.
  13. Here is my 2014 Z71 Crew Cab with a Rough Country 2 1/2" leveling lift kit and 275/70/18 tires.
  14. I did not pay that much for it. I grabbed it for $39.00. Here is the link...http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oe-gm/23135699
  15. Well guys, I grabbed some foam tape and some duct tape and applied the fix I posted about earlier. I wrapped all of the connectors under the dash cover with foam tape and placed duct tape on all of the connecting tabs on the dash cover. I will post here later to let you know if the dash rattle has been resolved. BTW, I went ahead and replaced my drivers side pillar cover with a drivers side assist handle and I love it....here are a couple pics. https://goo.gl/photos/NJdAdUBj2FE7CgDR9
