  1. So I just got a 2018 Silverado 2500 and am wondering if anyone has experienced this in there’s. when I turn my truck off and then open and shut the door to make the radio turn off I can still hear what I can only assume to be the fan in the radio stay on. If I lock the truck it turns the fan off for a second and then it comes back on. If I push the power button on the radio it shuts off but again comes on. Anyone have any thoughts or does this happen in anyone else’s 2014-2019? It didn’t happen in my 2016 that had the same infotainment center that is the reason for my concern.
  2. So I went ahead and purchased the "updated" thermostatic valve for my 6L80e, part number 86774933 referenced in the SB. installation look about 10 min and only required a 10mm and 13mm open end. I do my trans fluid and filter every 22,500 as per the service manual and my fluid temp would hover around 185-195 towing or not towing hot outside or cold. As i live in CT the ambient air temp can be 10 degrees or 90. After the installation of the new bypass valve the trans sits at 145 and never got over 150 on a 2 hour 116mile drive. I also think this is much better than the "pill flip" as you retain the bypass ability for colder weather so the trans still gets up to temp quickly. I have not yet towed anything to see if the temp would go back up to the 180-190 range but I figured I would share this info for anyone else who thinks a transmission designed to run at 192 degrees is crazy. Also for anyone who wants one and doesn't wanna pay if your truck is still under warranty the dealer will install one of these if you complain about anything with the transmission even if the "Customer complaint Cannot be replicated." that being said i got mine for $60 on GMpartsDirect.
  3. That’s awesome about the 91 GM jack, I have a range and have had it from 50,****** miles I like it and it does the job, I also would consider a catch can.I have one from OCS and it catches a ton of oil. Also look at exactly what there doing with the lock up in the tuning as I have heard the getting rid of it all together in 2, 3, and 4 is pretty much just as bad as it engaging all the time like it does stock
  4. Hi everyone, I’m new to this forum and I just want to get a good idea of how many miles everyone’s getting out of there 14-18 5.3’s / 6L80 combos and what type of maintenance y’all are doing to get there. I have 90,****** now on my 2016. I follow my service schedule to a T. Trans fluid and filter every 22,500 and engine oil every 4000. What’s everyone else do to get there trucks up to high mileage
