  1. Just my input here, as I'm not an installer. Rebuilt 6L80e transmission sell for between $2500 & $3500 & usually come with a 2 or 3 yr warranty. I will assume it wouldn't take a shop more than 8 hrs to install. Depending on their shop rate ($100 to $150/hr) that's $800 to $1200 for labor plus they will charge you for 2.5 gal's of fluid ($100 to $120) guess that would be $3400 to $4820. And don't forget the Torque converter! Personally, I'd look for someone that would buy/source a heavier duty rebuilt transmission & Converter. Just my opinion.
  2. Thanks for this info....I'm just a shade tree mechanic & retired mechanical engineer. Seems to me, from what I've read & what I understand about transmissions, which is very little, besides the mechanical aspect, high temperatures appear to degrade the transmission fluids, which in turn affect clutches, seals & plastics. More clutch particles in the fluid would result in higher wear internally & with the degradation of the fluid from heat, would work on both the converter & transmission parts. The filters in transmissions are not made to catch small particles but larger stu
  3. Good information here for others! Thanks for this input as I follow this thread. Since your work on them or at least your dealership, what are the signs of a torque converter that's going bad?
  4. Help me on this, since I'm in USA & not familiar with Kms....you're past the 5 year/60,000 miles drive train warranty? Am I calculating it correctly that you're 2800 miles past the miles warranty but still inside the time? Total of 62,795 miles? Have you tried talking to a higher up guy to see if they could help you out? Have you ever had any transmission work done by GM in the past with this truck & ae you the original owner?
  5. Oh, and with our current gas supply limited, you are hoarding gas & plywood!!!! Shame on you You better hide both or some one will steal your gas & plywood. As well as the truck, which seem to also gone up in price due to shortage!
  6. What kind of phone? If Android, try adding the Android Auto & you need bluetooth on.
  7. Guys, can the "Hill Descent" feature be added easily to my 2017 Silverado 1500 LTZ non Z71? like what's comes on the Z71 model?
  8. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the 11,700#s is with the MAX towing package & the 9500/9200 is with out it.
  9. Doesn't look normal to me. My '17 Silverado (with a 12-16 build date) has the 20" wheels/tires with original Goodyear tires do not have any side wall cracks @ 36k miles. Are both sides of truck like this (Driver/passenger)? Or just one side. Looks like it sat a lot in the sun. That's just my opinion.
  10. If it were me, I'd swap the front & rears & see where the vibrations goes...or stays. Vibrations is usually speed dependent to tell you where & what it is. Lots of info on this on Youtube. Is vibration at your seat (butt) or at the steering wheel?
  11. Another possible fix is to move the tire; front to back or can also try L to R after that. Does your truck have a lift kit installed or is it stock? What make of tires? what wheels? factory or after market?
  12. Glad to hear you/they found the issue. Will GM cover this under the drive train warranty?
  13. I'm Guessing here, but I think you have an after market sensor. Your OEM standard sensor distance should show up in your center dash info center. At least it does on my 2017 Silverado. I will assume the PO wired it up to a "constant" 12V instead of a "power on" when car is turned on, probably connected to that switch you referred to. Hope this helps.

  14. A question back at you....Did you LHS mirror tilt BEFORE you added tow mirrors? If it did, there's probably a wire change that can be done. You would need to research that or talk to the mfg of the mirrors. IF the LHS didn't auto tilt tilt before, you may need a recoding. Also, have you tried turning that option on in the information center? Just my thought.
  15. I bought my last ones off Amazon, worked & fit fine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B082VQ7MV1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
