  1. Last night driving my truck i notice my check engine light was dim, not on fully but very very dim... Began to look online and find nothing really but a same problem with a vettee owner saying he had took it to a dealer for an ecm test failed it and they took care of it problem fix. However, before i got to dealer ( can’t stand going there) i want to see if anyone had the same thing? Took the truck to an local autozone for engine code test, nothing told them to check battery nothing... during the day light is no where to be found so just has me wondering. In the pictures the cluster lights are at the lowest. i’ve always drove with them at the lowest and never once seen the light so a reflection or some sort isn’t the problem. anyone has any idea what it might be? another thing too sometimes when i put my parking park and i turn off the truck when i come back to turn it the brake light isn’t on maybe it has to deal with the same thing... 2014 silverado 5.3 66k miles
  2. where do you find synthetic blend 0w20 ac delco? i’m looking online for it and i only found it on amazon for 12.95 a quart. might as well go full for that price... in the owners manual they recommend ac delco synthetic so knowing me wanting everything to be perfect i would want to use that type of oil... i mainly drive close by expect school which is other side of town but work and everything else is close by another reason i would want to go synthetic.
  3. x2 on highway it isn’t that bad, i always tell people on city driving just use m5
  4. alright guys, i’m 18 and somewhat getting into cars, never had anyone to teach me about engines, but i’m wondering is an LS engine a 5.3? i’m confused on the difference between a 5.3 and a 5.7, i try to look it up and i see a LS1 is a 5.7, but what is a 5.3 engine a LS? watching this series on youtube were this guy rebuilds this “ LS 5.3” which is pretty neat and makes me wanna get into since i always loved older chevys and loved cars in general, thanks again hoping for advice from older motorheads
  5. full synthetic? why not synthetic? just wondering don’t want to start a whole war on full synthetic vs synthetic lol
  6. just wondering but why mobile 1? why not ac delco since it’s recommended on there owners book? just wondering since many people say mobile 1 and some say ac delco...
  7. From what i been reading from this site, is that the repairs can be costly.... if anything just the tranny and engine warranty shouldn’t be that much, although the stealership may try to give you a high price. but if they are replacing lifters you should be fine for a long time, luck to you my brother!
  8. did you just buy the screen itself and didn’t do nothing to the current hmi module in the truck?
  9. happen to my 14 silverado 5.3 as well but around 65k making an horrible knocking noise when on v4 mode, took to dealer said it was lifter collapsed, took the same amount of days for parts, under warranty and got a free loaner ( 19 high country literally made me want to get that truck lol..) but repair took about 4 days due to the fact they had to repair both sides of lifter they now telling me i should be good for another 100k. i had the same quotation “how is this happening so early in the truck?” they reply “ premature aging, somewhat a common problem on these trucks” like what??? the truck feels so much better now and the shift to v4 doesn’t feel that bad, going to do an oil change too just so i can have a better piece of mind knowing everything is fine there... i wouldn’t be that much worried... i’m guessing just one of the few that got unluckily with the bad lifters but i will be getting extended warranty and honestly if this problem happen right now who knows what can happen later on that’s why better to be safe than sorry!
  10. thanks man! you made it real clear! plan on sticking with m5 from now on, truck feels better when in that gear..
  11. going to try out griots quick wax for drying aid always been eyeing there products but never got my hands on them.. that vette is killer brother!! have you thought about ceramic coating any of the cars?? plan on getting mine ceramic but once i get a power washer, dryer etc... always heard of the waterless wash how expensive you talking about?
  12. i’m at 66k miles and my lifters for AFM collapsed...sucks i know... when i have it on “D” it makes this ugly helicopter taking off noise when it goes into v4. so what i have been doing is driving around in m5, at first wasn’t sure but now i really like it to me it shifts better and just drives a little better..( could be my head just telling me that) also no ugly sound! but once the dealership fixes the lifters i’m probably still going to keep driving in m5 but i got a couple of questions. does driving in m5 bad for tranny or engine long run? why not go into m6 instead? what are signs of oil consumption? ( wanna get this check out asap before warranty ends) what i been doing is city driving i drive in m5, highway i leave it in D, is that a good or should i just go up a gear and drive in m6 in highway? thanks again!
  13. hey man if heard pretty good things about it! i’m looking into a wax and i might go with that one, however, the bad thing reviews say about it is that it’s a lot of work applying it just for it to not last that long... to me that wouldn’t really mind since i enjoy cleaning my truck a lot. but got a good wax for not that much i think it’s worth it.
  14. sounds like they are good... might try out a product right now just bought meguiars shine as your dry quick wax, if this don’t come out that good would look towards adams polish.
