  1. Get you a rubber vacuum cap or something similar to cover the end of the Fumoto valve and nothing will drain out if the valve gets hit. You can also tighten it to where the handle is up out of the way so nothing can hit it. I've got a section of tygon tubing I slip over the end of the valve and drop into my drain pan when I pull into the garage when it's time to change oil. Open the valve and walk in the house. Come back out the next morning and I know I have drained the oil while it was hot, no splashes, no mess and easy as can be.
  2. Your transmission will have much lower temperatures. I took my truck on 300 mile round trip last Thursday to pick up a rear axle for my DD. 150 miles ups the interstate running 70-75 MPH. Temp never got above 145.
  3. I backed into my parking spot at work on cold and rainy morning. I could see a small cloud of steam coming from the front of my truck. I walked around front and could smell the antifreeze. I was still just inside my warranty and they replaced mine. It might have been by the TSB mentioned above. It's been several years back now.
  4. Look on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. Or you could put a wanted ad and probably get a set cheaper. I sold my heated, power mirrors for $50 last summer.
  5. Why would it make me mad? I have never had a vehicle that provides a MPG readout to be correct. Get an app and keep up with it. You can see in my sig what my lifetime MPG is with my truck.
  6. Congrats on getting to the top. You are braver than I would be.
  7. Crud. Did the oil pressure just go away? How many miles on the truck? My 2014 is right at 117k.
  8. When you got no resistance reading, you got 0 ohms. That is good. It should be 0. Now, do a voltage drop test on the positive and negative cables. https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/topic/245910-how-to-strange-electrical-issues-with-14-18-sierrayukon-do-this-test-first/
  9. Should easily go past 3500 RPM. It should easily rev to redline in drive. If it's still ONLY 3500 RPM, something is still amiss.
  10. Eli, give this thread a look. Try measuring the voltage drop across your negative battery cable. Also, give a look to the positive cable. Hopefully this will shed some light for you.
