  1. I'll second CamGTP statements. Since I've changed my filter and fluid, I pull 1 gallon of fluid back out the dipstick and refill with one gallon of fresh fluid every 15k miles. It's easy and gives me peace of mind. I don't know if it is buying my any extra life but I am currently at 118k miles on mine.
  2. My 2014 had a crack in the plastic along the top of the radiator. I backed into my parking space at work and noticed a little steam coming from under the front edge of the hood. It had been raining so I thought it might have been that. I popped the hood and walked around to the front of the truck and I could smell coolant. Mine was still under warranty so the dealer replaced it. I had noticed the water being low also. So I added some distilled water to the tank to bring the level back to full. After that was when I saw the steam. That evening when I got home, the level was low in the tank again.
  3. Just thought I would add to the thread. My truck is still running and shifting like it should. The temps are still lower than they were with the thermostat in place. I drove it 11 hours to south Florida last October with no issues at all. I don't remember the exact temps the trans was running but it was no where near the opening point of the stock thermostat. Maybe 150-160 degrees F. at the max. I'm still happy with the flip and I still do my one gallon trans fluid swap every 15k miles.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Congrats on getting to the top. You are braver than I would be.
  10. Crud. Did the oil pressure just go away? How many miles on the truck? My 2014 is right at 117k.
  11. 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/
