  1. I check the oil level and colour and take a quick look around under the hood every time I gas up. There are no coolant stains on the garage floor and I didn't notice any temperature issues when driving. But we had to go out of town the next day so I didn't exactly have time to mess with it.
  2. Are you sure the shop put the wheels on correctly? I had this exact same issue on my car after the stealership rotated my tires. My assumption was they didn't tighten the lug nuts in a cross pattern. I took the tires off and put them back on correctly and the problem went away.
  3. I had my wife's Corolla in at the dealership the other day for an oil change. While I was there, they told me the water pump was leaking coolant pretty badly and needed to be replaced. The service advisor couldn't tell me how exactly the pump had failed and I didn't feel like bothering a tech about it. The SA did tell me they only expect the pumps to last about 4 years, which I think is ridiculous, especially for a Toyota. So I wanted to check with you guys how long water pumps typically last. The car is a 2013 with 86k kms (54k miles). Thanks.
  4. I've been browsing the Tundras forum a bit. But yeah, there's nothing there that will leave you stranded.
  5. The refinery I work at is old enough that all the process equipment is in imperial but our lab is working in metric. Gets very confusing trying to figure out if the freeze point of the jet fuel is on spec or not.
  6. All this talk has me thinking maybe I should buy a Tundra since Canada doesn't really have any true lemon laws. Then again, I don't want to have to tear the engine down to fix a leaking cam tower seal or rebuild a leaking rear differential or deal with the truck braking itself while on a straight, empty road for no reason...
  7. I still think this is one of the most interesting and informative forums I've joined. I've been on a Tundra forum that's ok, if a bit boring, two Toyota forums and one Kia one with no one on them regularly and a Ford forum that's full of morons who don't see a problem with having a dozen recalls on a 3 year old design and refuse to share their experience when asked for it. The guys on GM full size are all assholes who apparently don't drive anything newer than a GMT-800 and also have never heard the terms GMT, K2 or T1. So yeah, this forum could be better but it also could be a lot worse.
  8. Looks like Ford thinks GM's lift kit was a good idea... https://www.motor1.com/news/371643/ford-ranger-f-150-lift-kit/
  9. I hope you're wrong but I also fear that's what they'll do.
  10. Why not go for the High Country 6.2 max tow with the tech package.
  11. Our scaffolding contractor has a couple first gen Raptors with the 6.2L V8. Perfect for idling around the refinery at 15 mph. Lol
  12. Supposedly GM may release a body on frame SUV riding on the Canyon/ Colorado platform in 2022 and using the Jimmy name. What do you guys think? https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a28118146/gmc-jimmy-future-off-road-suv/
