  1. I took mine to the dealer with the same issues, we got tires all set after 3 new ones and multiple road force balance attempts , they showed me where GM will not allow dealers to change the converter anymore as the original version of that TSB stated. they did do the triple flush with the Gucci fluid. it was better but not completely gone. its vibrates at 65-75 I brought it back and they checked some more things and contacted GM, they explained to me that GM wanted them to check TCC slip speed at 60mph and if it were more than 10 RPM's to change the converter, they checked it, it was 26 RPM's and they put a new converter in it. so far (knock wood) it seems to be corrected. they also let me know that the TC part number has been changed 4 times since they did one other swap in April of 2017. they said that sometimes means there was changes made to correct issues. I think the dealers are behind the 8 ball on this issue, GM doesn't always tell them the whole story either, so they can only do what they are allowed to. So far my dealer has been very good to me on this issue they have not stopped trying. I am very happy with their service. I just hope I wont need to see them anymore for a while.

  3. GVW and Towing capacity are 2 different things. My understanding is... GVW is what the truck can carry including the weight of the truck. (the most weight can be on all 4 tires) Towing capacity is the max amount of weight the truck can tow (pull) my 17 6.2 8sp says GVW is 7600 pounds but towing capacity is 12500
  4. First line says <my GMC dealer> signature says Chevrolet Customer Assistance Center. Never heard of "GM Internal" I think who ever sent you this is NOT GM, seems bogus to me.
  5. When its doing it, bring it to the dealer and make them come out and look at it then.
  6. If an additive needs to be added to your oil to make it be better, just buy better oil instead.
  7. EVERY thing on a vehicle is a safety item these days. they are all connected in some way. Fact is mechanical things break. nothing in this world is made so perfect that it cant break. just because something broke doesn't mean issue a recall on it right away. If the OEM's were to be held by that standard no one could ever afford to buy a vehicle and all the companies would go out of business. Yes these truck are expensive no doubt. and yes the OEM's need to constantly thrive to build a better product. but a recall doesn't need to be issued every time a part built by humans fail. Okay let the flaming begin
  8. do your research, I am pretty sure you have to have a permit to run the national or Nauset beach which requires you to have a list of things to get out there.
  9. Ist of all did you buy a 2014 with out any kind of warranty at all? usually for an "as is veh" it would be much older. When you say you signed the papers does it state any kind of warranty? you shouldn't have to pay for repairs before you buy a buy a vehicle. I would not walk away from this I would run as fast as I can.
  10. I drove the truck today with continentals on it. Vibration seemed to be gone. It was raining this morning when I went in to have them changed, and I did notice some spinning tires going around corners(not getting on it) I now have the continentals on it so I think I'm staying with them for now.
  11. Okay so I trying to track down a vibration at 68-75 mph (no I'm serious) the dealer has already did the road force and force match process and it is better, but not right. Currently my truck has Goodyear LS-2's on it. The dealer has a set of the same rims but with Continental crosscontact tires on them. I watch them upgrade a Tahoe to 22's. the Tahoe has the same NHT towing package and the tires are rated the same in all respects. The dealer said If they try those and I like the ride better we can keep them on the truck and basically do a swap. since my truck has very low miles. I did notice that the vehicles on his lot with higher stock numbers (newer ones) have continentals and the older stock numbers have Goodyears ls-2s. So why did GM change their tire supplier for these size rims (275/55/20) Question is which do you like best Goodyear or continental, and why? the Tire rack compare feature slams the goodyears and says good things about the continentals.
  12. Tape is lame, We replace the capsule. it's not tape that holds it on. there is a plastic clip that breaks. have your dealer replace the capsule.
  13. That is text from a stop delivery notice that is on GM dealer website. looks like the recall is going to be 17276. if you go to your dealer they can run your vin and tell you if it applies to your specific vehicle. It will show up as "remedy pending"
  14. Yes 6/30 the fix is going to be programming. here is some info. Effective immediately, stop the delivery of certain 2014 model year Chevrolet Silverado LD and GMC Sierra LD vehicles in new or used vehicle inventory. General Motors has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) about an upcoming safety recall that involves these vehicles. The GM recall number is 17276. It is a violation of federal law for a dealer to deliver a new motor vehicle or any new or used item of motor vehicle equipment (including a tire) covered by this notification until the defect is remedied. General Motors has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 2014 model year Chevrolet Silverado LD and GMC Sierra LD vehicles. These vehicles may experience a temporary loss of electric power steering (EPS) assist followed by a sudden return of EPS assist, particularly during low-speed turning maneuvers. The loss and sudden return of EPS assist typically happens within a 1 second period and is caused by an electrical/software issue. If EPS assist is lost and suddenly returned, the driver could lose temporary control of the steering wheel, increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this condition, dealers will reprogram the EPS module software.
