  1. I change 1 gallon of fluid in my trans every 15k miles. Have been doing that since 60k miles and now I am at 105k, all seems fine with mine. At 60k miles my fluid was nasty! It now looks nice
  2. Truck Stuff

  3. I had an 02 Z06 that I drove daily for about 5 years. Rain, snow, sleet, whatever East Tennessee weather had to offer. I also have my 70 convertible that I have had since around 99-2000 time frame. I have spent the money on restoring it to where it can be driven any where. It has an LS motor, 5 speed transmission, rack and pinion steering and 3.55 rear gear. It is easy to drive on the interstate and it will blow the tires off if you want. The bad is, it's black, has no AC(yet) and when I installed the convertible top on the frame, I did not make the top frame fit the windows first. So it now leaks in the rain. No biggie, it's not my daily driver. Can't find my pics online anymore. Here is a short video.
  4. Hopefully that is a typo. I saw it too when reading the thread and assumed he meant .001". He is pretty detail/maintenance oriented if you have read very many of his threads. Hopefully he will clarify when he returns to the thread. Great work FL335i. Makes me want to go after the axles and my vibrations are pretty minor but I can hear the gears change pitch when on and off the gas. I am easy on my truck and do not have a heavy foot.
  5. Did you join the Chevy Truck Legends program when they were offering earlier in the year?
  6. Your truck looks great and mine looks dirty. Good job. It must not be too hot in Massachusetts. Not sure I could spend 9 hours on my truck this time of year in East Tennessee. In the 90's and humidity makes it feel above 100. I spent about 5 hours in the pool if that counts for anything.
  7. Mine has done the radio on thing one time but I was not driving it. My wife needed to drive my truck because I was putting tires on hers. I met her for lunch and we swapped vehicles. When I got into my truck the radio was playing. It's happened the one time and never again. Weirdness.
  8. I have the Fumoto drain valve on mine. I went to Home Desperate and bought a couple of packs of rare earth magnets and stick them to the bottom of the oil filter. I am sure they grab anything that goes by and hold to it. I haven't cut a filter to inspect yet but it is cheaper than a filter mag.
  9. Was that for front and back or fronts only? I keep seeing these and think I would like to upgrade my truck also.
  10. Oil change intervals

    I change my engine oil and filter every 5k miles. It's easy to keep up with and I feel comfortable doing it this way. I also, change 4 quarts of transmission fluid every 15k by pulling it out the dipstick tube. I changed the trans filter at 65k and have been doing the trans fluid every 15 since. It's easy maintenance and only takes a few minutes to do. I prefer preventative over corrective maintenance.
  11. You can put a small patch of the loop part of some velcro on the column and spend about 5 bucks or so on a silicone cover for your fob. I only have the truck key on the ring. Nothing else. I pull in the garage and never use a key for the house. It stays in the console of my truck.
  12. I took my 2014 back last summer around this time and it was the condenser. Luckily I had bought the extended warranty and it covered the replacement and I was back on the road in about 4 hours or so. Mine had the same symptoms as you are describing and as quick as I pulled into the dealers lot the service guy walked out and pointed right to the problem area within seconds of seeing the truck. You could see the oil residue where the compressor oil was gathering dust near the leak.
  13. I put the z36 pads and their rotors on front and back about 6 or 7 months ago. Still a good upgrade. Brakes stop nice and smooth with no shudder at any speed. I'm happy with mine.
  14. Cargo solutions

    I did the same but used a 2x4. So far it has been plenty for what I have hauled. Used oil, groceries, a few bags of gardening soil, gas cans. Easy to handle and easy to store.
  15. I like the white letters out also. But I'm oldschool also and don't like the blackout style that everyone loves.
