  1. I thought I saw the recall is for Canada. Those in the US get an extended warranty and a middle finger.
  2. i bought a transmission cooler line fitting and it came filled with what looks like a grease of some sort. Is this normal or does it need to be removed before installation?
  3. If the battery has been sitting on the shelf for months and months at wherever you bought it, it may not be fully charged — Particularly if the vendor doesn’t use FIFO, doesn’t periodically boost charge their inventory, etc. I would jump it then go for a long drive before calling it a bad battery.
  4. Vacuum pump only
  5. Then maybe it’s this one. I’m not buying a third one to check though
  6. Here is the one I have. The tabs on the valve cover are at 12 and 6 o’clock. When you align the slots on the tube with the tabs in the Valve cover then fully rotate it until it stops, the tube opening is either angled forward or backward. You can stop turning when the tube opening is vertical but it is not fully seated at that point.
  7. I wouldn’t recommend this. Once you put it in and twist it to lock it in place, it’s angled downward rendering it useless. And it’s a mother lover to remove once it’s locked into place. Maybe I’m an idiot but I don’t see a way to have this lock in vertical unless you can somehow rotate the locking tabs on the plastic valve cover piece that the tube locks into.
  8. I believe the stuck in 4wd fix is just a flash of the transfer case module. Shouldn’t be charged more than hour labor. There are no parts. If if you want a good mechanic, there is one an hour south of you in Avoca, NY. South Main Auto. Check out his YouTube channel.
  9. So they aren’t going to do any preemptive fix. Just extending the warranty on the vacuum pump and paying for those who have already replaced it. I wonder if if they’ll cover other damages if pump failure results in an accident.
  10. Oil Fill Tube

    This one fits only issue is it doesn’t sit straight up/down but will be angled to the front or back
  11. Is it just in the cab corner or all Along the rockers? The photos look like a cab corner which could be repaired for way less than $7000
  12. No help for the current predicament but if you replace rockers, remove all of those plugs in the rockers , hose it out, let it dry, spray the snot out of the inside with fluid film, replace plugs. The area around the rear wheels is probably next to go.
  13. Been seeing these in photos of 2019 z71 1500s. I can’t make out the brand but maybe my eyes are bad.
