  1. I have a question concerning connecting WiFi on my 2017 Silverado LTZ with all of those options. Is there something I'm overlooking to be able to connect to my home wifi while parked in the driveway? I go into the wifi settings & pick my network router, it shows at least 2 bars, tell it to connect, but cannot run any of the apps on the system, i.e. Weather channel etc. Is there a setting that I'm missing or is this only good if you pay for it via OnStar? I can connect my phone via Android Auto but that's not my question.
  2. ck to see if the sensors are turned off. Here's video for the setting.
  3. Thanks...very interesting. Here's a link explaining it more https://redirect.viglink.com/?format=go&jsonp=vglnk_164029083366812&key=5e9e33f20bf41d5a669cc4838c2690e9&libId=kxjekwjt01000b28000MLat47xr5l&loc=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.corvetteforum.com%2Fforums%2Fc7-tech-performance%2F3504021-lt1-main-bearings.html&ccpaConsent=1---&v=1&opt=true&out=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pvd-coatings.co.uk%2Fapplications%2Fautomotive%2F&ref=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F&title=LT1 Main Bearings - CorvetteForum - Chevrolet Corvette Forum Discussion&txt=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pvd-coatings.co.uk%2Fapplications%2Fautomotive%2F
  4. Can you explain what & how this "coating" would do or not do, relative to the issue of the original post. I just need to be educated on it.
  5. For those unfamiliar with what the issue is, here's a GM video link explaining the issue. I don't endorse this video, as I don't know what others know or have experienced. However, it's my educated guess, that by disabling the AFM, which disables the "locking tabs", should reduce the chances of a failure due to the locking tabs jamming in the lifter. By disabling the AFM system, say via something like a Range AFM disabler, you have eliminated future possible lifter failures. This is just my opinion. Active Fuel Management | ACDelco AFM Lifters
  6. Look here and see if you can find that info........ GM 6.2 Liter V8 Small Block LT1 Engine
  7. My bad, you're correct. My '17 CPO was put into service on 1/31/17 so 6 years would put me at 1/31/23! I have 1 more year! The sales manager actually wrote down 1/31/22. unless I put 60k miles on it in the next 12 months....that won't happen. Thanks
  8. Ok....mine is a Certified Used Truck...got the extra 40k miles, but no extra years from time of original put into service date. 1st thing I did was defeated the AFM.
  9. Isn't the warranty 6 yrs or 100k? My '17 @ 40k miles is now out of warranty due to time.
  10. Watch this video & note he loosened the rear trans. mount bolts & jacked the trans up about an inch. Good luck. 6L80E Transmission Super Flush and Filter Change Silverado Sierra Tahoe Suburban Yukon Escalade H2
  11. I guess 1 option is get a spray can of paint stripper....
  12. Checking the logged code(s) would be your next step.
