  1. I have a 2018 Silverado with the 5.3.What is the latest on oil filters? I'm not seeing the PF63E oil filters around very much at the stores.Did they officially go back to a plain PF63? Okay to use that?
  2. I apologize if this has been covered before,but I have a 2018 Silverado with a backup camera in the tailgate handle and would like to add a backup camera on the back of my trailer.This leads to a few questions: 1)Wire or wireless? Any opinions? 2)As far as display,should I get a small monitor or can it be hooked up somehow with the screen for the tailgate camera? I see lots of options on Amazon at very reasonable prices,but has anyone done something like this that has feedback as to what is a good or bad setup? Thanks.
  3. I have a 2018 Silverado with the back up camera on the tail gate.I was thinking how nice it would be to have a back up camera on the license plate frame of my trailer.That way,I could see behind my trailer when I am using it.Does anybody know if it would be possible to buy a license plate backup camera and display what it shows instead of the tailgate camera when using the trailer? I am thinking that it "might" be possible, but I am not at all familar with this.Thanks.
  4. I have a 2018 Silverado.I think you may have a bad starter.Mine did the same thing.
  5. My 2018 Silverado with 40k did this.I tried a new battery.That was not it.I put on a new starter and it has been fine ever since.
  6. I have a 2018 Silverado with 42k.I had to replace the starter.LOTS of problems with starters in trucks of these years.
  7. My 2018 Silverado is out of warranty.The dealer said that the starters were on backorder,but I was able to locate one on my own.I asked for a quote on labor to install it,and my local Chevy dealer said they could do the job for $288. I thought that seemed rather expensive.Upon installing it myself,I found that you can easily get the old starter down in less than 10 minutes and be complete with the job in about 1/2 hour. So if you need a starter and are out of warranty,don't get ripped off by your local Chevy dealer. So far so good with the new starter.
  8. This sounds SO much like my problem.I have a 2018 Silverado with 42k.The problem generally happens when it is less than 25 degrees.If I keep trying to start it,it has always started.But sometimes it takes 6-7 turns of the key.It has been to the dealer twice,and it always works fine for them.They told me they have no ETA on a new starter.Kind of a joke really.I already had changed the battery a few months ago,thinking it was that.I keep checking this forum for this topic to explode.Most 2018 owners don't have 40k miles yet.But just wait!
  9. Well,it did it again yesterday.No start.I had my wife get inside and I went underneath.I was hearing a loud thud by the starter.I gave it a tap with a hammer and it started right up.Now the starter does seem to be the logical thing.But the problem now is that I was told I need 12695760 .Nobody seems to have this starter in stock and nobody even knows when it will be back in stock.
  10. When it happens to me,I am not even hearing a click.It will act like there is no battery at all.But I appreciate your feedback,as I was thinking of trying a starter.I have been hearing of issues with the small positive battery cable in the distribution block on top of the battery.That is something I might try first,because it is easier to change than a starter.
  11. If you don't mind me asking,was this in colder weather? The reason that I ask is that this issue only seems to happen with a temperature of 25 degrees F or less.And SO FAR,it always starts,but definitely gets your attention as to who am I going to call for a tow.It will be totally dead for 5-6 cranks of the key,and then it fires up strong.Usually,it is only on the first start of the day,but yesterday,it did it after the vehicle was already started and warmed up,but it was less than 30 degrees outside air temperature.
  12. I have a 2018 Silverado 4x4 with 5.3. For the last few months,particularly when it is less than 25 degrees,my truck will not crank and all lights on the dash are out. I am out of warranty at 43,000 miles. I put a new battery on thinking it might be the issue,but that wasn't it. A couple times,I have left my truck at the dealer and they think I am nuts,because it always starts for them. But it did it again twice today. It will always start,but sometimes,it takes 5-6 turns of the key. There have been times where my truck will not start using the APP on my
  13. Hello,first timer here.Sorry if this has been addressed before,but I was planning on changing the transmission filter in my 2013 Silverado 1500 Extended cab.It looks like there is an exhaust pipe down there that is going to prevent the pan from coming off.Just wondering as to the recommended procedure.I have read to drop the exhaust and another idea is to try and raise the transmission.I would like to know the recommended way.I much prefer to do this myself if possible,as opposed to paying the dealer $250.Thanks!
