Yea, love hate relationship. I will try not to get one ever again, had one on my 2005 Canyon and had it leak multiple times until i put a lot of silicon on the seal, closed it and pulled the fuse. I did like to use it during the summer to get the heat out of the truck faster.
BlancoSilverado replied to Sharpydog's topic in Silverado / Sierra & Future Vehicle Speculation & Spy ShotsDid you reuse your crush washers or install new ones?
I actually got a " replace FOB battery soon" 39 months on the battery, probably got another few months before it goes out. Will need to replace it prior to our summer activities. Does anyone know if the key pad only uses energy when in use or does it constantly use energy like our FOBs?
I am kinda interested. but your too far.
I trust CamGTP enough, My mothers suburban with 175kmiles that has the oil change 4-5kmile interval had some sludge(tiny amount). I would try a few oil flushes/ extremely fast change interval for a few oil changes, 500 miles, posssibly use a half of a quart of trans fluid to help.
Would something like this be better(because of the scratching)? https://www.carid.com/trunk-tailgate-seals.html?offermpnid=4636636217&view=123456&gclid=Cj0KCQjw3v6SBhCsARIsACyrRAlmUDW1LXk78UGyV-h68fu1OYko3vAuT7WBJepyrIn9t8L9En93JIUaAmNkEALw_wcB
Sounds like your on the right track. Does this happen when the engine is cold/cool or when its fully hot? Compression and leak down test, then if that comes out good, i would then run a cleaner (like seafoam) though the intake to possibly remove carbon build up. Since these motors are DI that could (might not) be an issue, also usually carbon build up problems show up on a cold engine.
