Anyone using the OBDLink MX+ device on their 2019+ truck? Never had an OBD2 reader/scan tool. The MX+ seem to be the best value for the money. Only reads DTC codes for now. All the advance diagnostic info isn’t available for the 2019+ yet. Seems like I can’t find any OBD2 reader or scan tool to read ABS and SRS codes for our trucks. Don’t need a reader/scan tool, just want one.
I have the Remote Access and the Safety and Security packages. It gets cold here in Canada, and starting the truck with the phone helps, when the fob range doesn't cut it. Got the Safety and Security in case I ever get in a single vehicle accident on a country/rural road, etc., my phone goes flying and I can't get to it (I guess I could always cry out to Siri?) or I get knocked unconscious. Nice to know OnStar will detect my accident and call (hopefully within cell service). Probably never going to need the Safety and Security package, but I'm not paying full price for both packs together,
Thanks! This is what I was looking for. Yup 29-30psi idle when fully warmed. On startup first thing in the morning (summer), it shoots up to 500kpa (72psi) and if I drive it right away, it stays there and slowly works it's way down to 400kpa (60psi) after 10-15mins depending on how many stop lights I run into. Never paid attention to the gauge until after the cooler lines were changed, so I didn't have any reference points. Looks like I'm operating within normal ranges. Thanks again.
I recently had the engine oil cooler lines recall done. 2019, 5.3, 8sp. Before the recall, the oil pressure would fluctuate between 200kpa (29psi) at idle and 400kps (58psi) when driving around town or highway, which I know is normal. Now, I notice my oil pressure likes to fluctuate between 400kpa - 450kpa (58psi - 65psi, a tick past straight north) when driving around town, but settles to 400kpa (58psi) when on the highway. Still idles at 200kpa. I read that 65 psi is still an ok range. No towing, empty bed, not sending it, in all scenarios. Oil level seems to be ok.
Yeah, I know. I’m being a bit manic. I just don’t want the plastic piece to contribute to trapping moisture or clogging any pinch weld drain holes. Thanks for everyone who took the time to read my essay.
OCD question alert. I was doing my Spring rustproofing touch ups. I usually crawl underneath and remove the plugs on the inner rocker panel and stick my 360 spray hose through the holes to reach inside the rocker. Unfortunately this time one of the tops of a plug broke off. I couldn’t get the stem out with needle nose pliers so I decided to just push the broken piece into the rocker. I took my 360 hose and sprayed the inside with my oil based rust inhibitor and plug it up with a new plug. I don’t think I’m going to try and remove those smaller plugs anymore and have ano
I’d go with Fluid Film. Lots of YouTube vids about it and many positive reviews. It is drip-less. Some people complain about the smell but I think it goes away after a bit. It stays wet, never dries. In fact, if it feels dry, it’s time to reapply. It is not a one-time coat. Needs to be done annually. Just be careful about applying too much product on the frame. It will soften the factory wax on the frame. If you over do it on the frame, the wax will slide off in sheets or when you pressure wash it, it will potentially blast off the soften wax. This isn’t a Fluid Film spec
Is it only GM doing this? Toyota, Ford, etc aren’t selling over MSRP?
CorrosionFree.com The Canadian Department of Defence did a research paper on corrosion inhibitors and Corrosion Free’s product came out on top. https://corrosionfree.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/Dept-of-Defence-Report-Highlighted-Text-copy.pdf The stuff is thick, gooey, and clear. It doesn’t drip and stays on for 18 months. The tub stuff is thicker than the aerosol cans. They deliver to the US. A bit pricey. I don’t work or have any association with CorrosionFree. I just like their product. If you’re not interested in that, Fluid
With COVID restrictions, I’ve been driving significantly less and was wondering if anyone is (or has in the past) using a solar battery maintainer such as the one below? It’s only 10W with no controller. Will be using it on my 2019 RST.

Completely agree with this, especially the wicking up part. Sorry to hear it happening to OnTheReel. That is a huge crack! Was it “repaired” before?
Are they replacing the headliner too or just cleaning it for you?
