  1. First step might be battery ground cable, they seem to be a common issue without necessarily being loose or showing obvious corrosion etc. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  2. Like every other issue they don't want to or can't fix 'it's normal' [emoji53] 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  3. I have what sounds like the same thing, didn't start until recently though. 2014 with 110,000 kms. Mine sounds like middle of driver side near the top but I can't pinpoint it with the stethoscope. Again it isn't constant like one click per rpm, more random & might do a couple of ticks at a time or just one every few seconds. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  4. Absolutely, the length from the shoulder to the tip is what decides the location in the head. That's what was off on both other ones I've seen so far. If this wasn't a spark plug discussion I'd be a bit concerned how the above sentence would sound [emoji23] 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  5. Thanks very much, so this part number has the longer reach electrode as per your originals? I only question cos the image on NGKs Web page shows the same shorter reach as the others mentioned. I will definitely not buy anything without seeing it in person anyway. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  6. I had a couple of NGK plugs from the local parts store & they were the wrong length too so it's not quite that simple. I will give it another shot & take one out for comparison when I get there this time. Had no idea it would be worth the time & effort to produce a knock off with all the right packaging, lettering etc. If the electrode wasn't different I wouldn't have questioned them. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  7. Agreed but how do I know if I'll get anything different apart from going to the stealership, the parts actually arrived from the US within two weeks of ordering but I don't know if they just import a load of stuff & re-sell. That being the case if I order from tubmangmpartsdepot.ca here in Canada how can I tell if I'm getting anything different. Seems odd that the NGK plug I had bought a while back as a spare & this set are both different to the originals. I had the truck from new & this is the first plug change. I guess I will next go into the dealer & have a look at one of theirs with the same part number. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  8. Ok, this is getting weird. The AC Delco plugs arrived & they too are a shorter electrode than the originals despite having the same part number stamped on them. Are my originals a strange batch or did the plug design change later on? 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  9. Maybe something tied in with the traction control system like wheel speed sensor or something? 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  10. I looked at removing mine but could not see how it could come out without removing the inlet manifold due to clearance underneath for tool or pulling filter out. Anyone got actual photos of removal process? 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  11. My bet is sway bar mounts, next time it creaks get some silicone spray or something similar into the two rubber mount that go round the bar up to the frame. If the noise goes away that should be the problem. Mine does it usually in damp weather or after getting wet & drying out. Haven't got round to sourcing better versions yet. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  12. How about an anti-ice treatment wiped on the night before? 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  13. I just bought a cheap low profile switch from Canadian Tire & hooked up with some wire I had kicking around, probably about 16 awg & crimped spade connections. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  14. Got my switch rigged up on the black wire, thank you very, very much. This is so much better in the snow. With the stabilitrak turned off & traction control on it will let the back slip a little without bogging right down & can turn traction control off with the regular button if wanting to tool around [emoji106] 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
  15. Most likely shows up more when braking hard to an almost stop, I think the downshifting is playing catch up with the speed, might help in demonstrating to dealer. 2014, 5.3, 4x4, work truck
