  1. It's actually very easy to do minus the filter change due to exhaust location. There is a really good write up on silveradosierra.com in the how to section. I bought exactly was it said and had no issues with the fluid. Getting the level right took a little doing but not much Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That's what I did when I couldn't get the pan off no matter what I tried. I'm at 52k now and figure I can go awhile before messing with the filter Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Looking to buy GMT900

    Bought my 2012 with 41k and AFM on. I turned it off around 42k. No oil use before and none after turning off. Truck runs pretty good. I still want more truck though as towing can seem like a chore in hilly areas which is mostly what I have. Nothing too significant but enough to need 4th gear to maintain 55-60 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Diagnose Engine Noise

    Yea, I'm on an MMO regimen for oil and gas. Truck is completely quiet and slowly cleaning things up. Other than a slight tick I had at idle. It would tick with RPMs when I would get up in the 1500-2000 range. Since I've started it in the oil, that's gone away. Definitely seems quiet now Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That's no lie! I just watch the mpg for potential issues that may be developing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Diagnose Engine Noise

    How hard of a job is that? If I don't have MMO in my gas, I get the same noise. 4oz per 10 gallons of top tier makes it quiet so my possible issue is probably diff but wonder how big of a job that is to do. B12 is good stuff! Much cheaper than seafoam Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Oh yea, turn AFM off at least from a software perspective. Turned mine off around 43k Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Diagnose Engine Noise

    Fuel injector sometimes makes that noise. Mix some seafoam, B12 or Techron in it and also use top tier gas (Exxon, Shell...) and it will sound normal again. But I think the normal for the 5.3 is to tick a little. That's not lifter noise. Lifter noise is louder and is undeniable. That is fuel injectors most likely Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Sounds ok from what I hear 5.3 often has a little tick to it. Could be injectors from What I've read Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Pinging sound at acceleration

    I had some with 87 that got worse during the summer. I use 89 now and it's quiet. I also noticed my alcohol % was higher than 10% (13%) so I changed stations and only use Exxon now. Alcohol % is like 6% now. Runs better also. Read somewhere to not take quick trip to get gas and then back home. Get it up to temp and then put a few miles on it after so the computer to have time to recalculate the % correctly. Truck sounds better over all since I changed my gas habits. Also run Techron in it every now and then to clean it up. My 5 year old truck sounds like new now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Electric ratio adapter

    You need to change your ratio with a tuner. I used an intune when I went from a 3.08 to 3.73. Oddly though I didn't get any warnings when I changed mine like I've read would happen. Drove for a few days without the change before going for a dealer visit (under warranty). Only diff I had was going 15 mph faster that I really was. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Probably need to bleed again to get any air out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Google will do most of what you ask. I knew nothing but Ive fixed/upgraded all but one thing that I had to get help with. That was on the travel trailer brakes so maybe that doesn't count lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Gear ratio opinions

    Is your oil pressure always that low? Mine is close but a bit higher. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
