  1. My Silverado came with the advanced trailering package and four tire pressure monitors in the glove box. Do I have to take the trailer to a tire shop to install the sensors?
  2. I'm going to take it back to the dealer and let them take a look.
  3. I just purchased a 2019 Silverado that has the safety package and blind spot monitoring in the mirrors. The driver side works well but almost half the time the passenger side doesn't light up yellow when cars pass by. Is this normal?
  4. I'm looking at a 2019 RST Crew Cab 5.3 Z71 All Star with Safety and Convenience 11 package listed for 55,005 MSRP and sell price of 43,300 if I finance with GM. What do you guys think of that deal?
  5. Are all of the kits about the same from vendors? I'm assuming I just get the normal 16 lifters and the compatible cam shaft from GM?
  6. Wow how did you get this info so quick? Thanks a bunch.
  7. I'm thinking of getting a second opinion on it as well.
  8. Well my 2014 Sierra has been making louder noises at startup for the past few thousand miles so I decided to take it in to the dealer. They called and said bad lifter and camshaft, 5k to repair or 9k for new motor. The truck has 110k on it so it's out of warranty and has always had oil and filter changed at dealer with almost all interstate driving. What is everyone's thoughts about this as well as the prices?
  9. Oil pressure appears normal but I have never changed drive belts or any bearing in the tensioner. It very well could be that, any easy way to check that?
  10. My 2014 Sierra with the 5.3 has approximately 110k miles on it and has had no major issues to date. Over the past 10-15k the truck has gotten significantly noisier after startup and also has a weird sound under the hood when accelerating especially cold. It's hard to describe the noise but it sounds sort of like a squeal and it correlates directly to how much I push the throttle. It does seem to quiet down after the first few miles driving. This noise was never there and has now developed over the past few months worse. I'm using 0w-20 oil and even switched to 5w-20 this last oil change to see if it helped. Any ideas what could cause what I'm hearing?
  11. I'm looking to trade my 20 inch chrome wheels off my 2014 Sierra for All Terrain wheels. What are the AT wheels made of that make them look different? They basically have the same pattern.
  12. Yep that’s them! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I bought a 2014 Sierra Z71 truck this past year and one thing I don’t like is the wheels. They look like the all terrain wheels but all chrome. I’m looking at selling mine and swapping for the all terrain. I haven’t seen that many trucks that have the 20 inch chrome wheels like mine. What do you think these wheels would bring in comparison to the same all terrain wheels? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have the opportunity to buy some almost brand new Michelin LTX/MS from neighbor that is on his F-250. I currently have a stock 2014 Sierra Z71 with 275/55/20 and the tires I am looking at are 275/65/20. Will these tires fit without rubbing on my truck?
  15. I have a 2014 new to me Sierra 5.3 Z71 that I purchased last May. I recently towed a small aluminum trailer with two atv's and noticed some weird shifting while going down hills and letting off the gas. The truck would shift down and rev up to almost 5k RPM's and just act really strange. I took it off tow/haul and it seemed to do better but I got out of the hills about that time. Has anyone seen or heard of this?
