  1. I installed the new bypass valve in the middle of November. Since then, we've had temperatures from a little above freezing down to -35°C (-31°F.) The transmission warms up rather quickly to about 30°C (86°F,) then slowly climbs to about 60-65°C (140-150°F.) It has not gone past 69°C (156°F). At -30°C, it takes about a half-hour of stop-and-go city driving to get up to 60°C. Most of this has been with myself and about 300-400 lbs of payload in the truck. I have somehow managed to avoid driving out the the mother-in-law's house (about an hour outside of town) for the past two months, but I'll report back when I've got some cold highway driving.
  2. Oooh! A flat-bottom steering wheel! Don't let the 9000 lb curb weight fool you: this thing's a racecar! I can't wait for all the discussions about cold electron intakes. Kidding aside, I like it.
  3. Yup. There are two Engine and transfer case. I wouldn't plan on doing much skidding on either, though.
  4. Whereas before, the engine was tuned for a flat 348 lb-ft torque plateau from 1,500 to 4,000 RPM (most likely for durability/reliability), the 2022 has a torque peak at 3,000 RPM. Max. horsepower still occurs at 5,600 RPM. All they did was remove the plateau and let the engine peak. Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5252. I'm certain horsepower between 1,500 and 4,000 RPM has increased for 2022. It's just below peak horsepower, which occurs at higher RPM. If there's any complaint about the little engine that could, it's that it runs out of legs at higher RPM.
  5. Avery, can you put your father on the line? We need to have a talk with him.
  6. And yet many of us survived past the 80's.
  7. The T1 Chevys are like Artie Lange: they were never pretty to begin with, then something awful happened.
  8. What kind of tonneau cover? Many of the flip types can be opened with a coat hanger.
  9. And yet complaining about the transmission getting hot isn't listed in the TSB.
  10. So if I'm reading this correctly, I can show up complaining about harsh shifts under warranty (which they won't be able to duplicate because the truck is shifting just fine) and they'll swap in the new thermostat?
  11. Go camping outside of cell range and accidentally close the door with the keys inside while packing up. Regardless of the owner's manual saying it won't, it's sure-fire way for the vehicle to lock itself for some reason. Ask me how I know.
  12. You're on the right track. Pull the throttle body and give it a good cleaning. I had a Canyon that did this every few years, and it got worse in the winter time.
  13. But blacked out is so cool! https://www.kia.ca/vehicles/carnival2022/overview?sourceid=nav
  14. Yes. Some vendors list the LD; some don't. If it's not listed, 2018 is the fallback.
