  6. Is manually downshifting going down a steep grade instead of using brakes in snowy/icy conditions damaging the fragile 4l60e transmission? I have been doing this downshifting a few times a day and began to think about negative affects if any? Also, is there a proper way to manually downshift with these trucks to avoid damage? Do I need to be going a certain speed in order to downshift to lower gears or just shift the lever down? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Heat on but compressor on?

    Oh ok interesting. Didn’t know this. Thank you both! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Hello all, 05 Silverado 1500 5.3 LM7 Automatic climate control CJ2 I believe Whenever I turn the heat on, I noticed that the compressor clutch kicks on. However, vents inside cab still blow hot for heat and cold when I switch it to AC. Anyone have same issue? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. lean condition

    A lean condition is when the engine is receiving too much air and not enough fuel. What causes a lean condition: vacuum leak on intake, cracked intake hose, bad B1 oxygen sensor, intake manifold gaskets bad, fuel pump not strong enough etc What specific codes does the truck have?

  11. Strange oil level issue

    Update: isolates oil leak to oil filter housing. Removed old oil filter(came off with o ring) and put on a new one pre filled with oil. Ran engine and saw oil slowly start to drip from top of oil filter housing. Anyone have any past experience in this location with a leak? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 05 Tahoe 5.3 LM7 150,000 miles “Check engine oil level” came on on DIC about 2 weeks ago. I checked oil level but it was good. Thought it was oil level sensor cropping out and didn’t think it was big deal. Now yesterday I saw a puddle of engine oil where I park vehicle. Pulled dipstick today and NOTHING WAS ON DIPSTICK. However I pulled drain plug and 3.5 qts came out. Truck calls for 6 qts. Small puddle, but lots of oil lost within short amount of time. Do these engines have issues with oil consumption commonly?

  14. Need help with lean code p0171

    Yes I have tried this and no luck. Need to use a smoker. Believe there is vacuum leak at bottom of intake manifold Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Need help with lean code p0171

    Thank you for info. I believe the two oxygen sensors and misfire code are result of p0171. I think there is intake leak somewhere but need to smog test to confirm. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
