  1. My trans temps regularly exceed 200 degrees especially during stop and go, don't have any of the shifting issues. My truck is a z71, same build date, same engine, have no idea if it was upgraded to the Mobil 1 fluid. 75 percent of my driving is rural though.
  2. My fix for the fuzzy camera at night is to turn on the bed light when backing up. Maybe they need a brighter backup light.
  3. Give me the cheap 2 dollar bulb over the 500 dollar led assembly.
  4. Bought it in Nov of 2019, would like to put step rails on it, someone I know suggested get ones that cover the rocker panels to protect against road debris, stones etc. Can anyone recommend something or point me to a website with good info? Thanks.
  5. I am talking about the led light on the upper brake light. That would throw it beyond.
  6. As far as the night time backup picture goes, I just turn on the bed light, and the picture improves noticeably. I live in the country and my driveway is dark, so this works for me. Your results may be different.
  7. l believe it is the electric assist to the master cylinder and braking system running a self check.
  8. Thank you for that explanation, I had no idea about that. It was just, you know, the whole brake pedal to the floor thing, lol. Ok, as the original poster I am now more confused than ever.

  10. Went to start the truck today, and like the title says brake pedal went straight to the floor as I went to press the start button. Let brake pedal back up, press start button, yellow light around button came on, then put foot on brake pedal again, this time brake pedal was again firm and truck started normally. No MIL light. Have had both brake updates done. No further trouble today. Anyone else experienced this?

  12. My own experience is when you shift from reverse to drive let it sit in neutral for one to two seconds, I don't know why but it seems to help the transmission's overall performance.
  13. That's interesting, mine has a build date of November 2018, and I only noticed harsh shifts when it's 25 or below and then it smooths out after trans reaches operating temp. It's 50 in North Central Ohio today and shifts have been smooth. Outside of 2 brake recalls, I have had no issues with any fit or finish and get like 19 mph combined, so I guess I got lucky. I will ask for my trans fluid replacement at my first oil change, however.
  14. My experience is that employee or in my case I did much better with negotiating as the other way locks you into a price.
  15. Just download the Sirius app to your smartphone, and plug in Android auto, Sirius will appear on the radio screen with the album cover. Your have to change channels with your phone, however. Or just Bluetooth through without Android, and you get screen without cover art.
