WilliamBos replied to MoonshineRunner's topic in Hybrids, XFE, & Active Fuel ManagementIs the oil pressure erattic or zero full time? What about the o ring on the pick up tube? Was it checked with a mechanical pressure guage?
I have lotsof experieence to bring to the table, friends that have traded out GM hd trucks for Ram and Ford, my employer has done the same thing. They are not up to the task of heavy work like Ram and Ford. If all you do is tug a horse trailer ftom show to show, you will be ok, but any actual heavy work and the truck is not up to the task. Thankfully GM partnered with Navistar on the medium duty - heavy frame, solid axles front and rear and a gear driven transfercase on 4wd models.
Guess you have not noticed that Ram or Ford still use solid front axles... or that the new medium duty uses a solid front axle and a gear driven transfer case. Oh wait, the chassis is all Navistar, not a wimpy GM chassis.
And that is why a GM is not seen as a serious hd truck, those that need hd trucks that do more than mall /trailer cruise buy Ford or Dodge Ram. their ifs has always been light duty, right down to the pencil sized tie rod ends.
Agreed! The software programmers the OEM’s use are smart, they are hard programming these so not everything can be tuned out. Quite a few heavy trucks up north have self destructed after being deleted and tuned. GM will allow the consumer to adjust tire size and the like, but no engine tuning.
