    2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ 5.3l V8 4x4
  1. Ive seen some videos and the amount of shavings that end up on the plug. Normally any metal shavings are a big red flag but i guess chevy/gmc know otherwise. Thanks!
  2. Like i said, im not big on the specifics of ATF lol. So by "normal" i mean the non LV ATF HP version by M1. As they have that version as well as Mobil™ DEXRON-VI ATF. Sorry for not clarifying. Appreciate it!
  3. Okay, so It wouldn't hurt using the HP fluid over the normal ATF that is recommended? I'm not really sure about the specifics of the HP vs Normal ATF fluid and how it would go about affecting the transfer case. I just know that the HP is definitely the fluid to use on the 8 speed transmissions. Especially the 17 models.
  4. Alrighty appreciate it, just wanted to be 100% sure before going after it. Always good to get a second opinion.
  5. I have a 2017 Chevy Silverado 4x4 5.3l V8 with the 8 speed transmission. I already flushed out my transmission and filled it back up with the Mobil 1™ Synthetic LV ATF HP blue label. The question is, do i also use the HP fluid for my transfer case? Or do i need to use just a standard ATF fluid instead. I cant seem to find a straight answer on this. The owners manual states to use DEXRON®-VI Automatic Transmission Fluid. Would using regular ATF in the transfer case and HP ATF in the transmission cause any issues? Thanks in advance!
