  1. Probably easier to ask what doesn’t cause a CEL on these things. I have made peace with the fact it’s just always going to be on. Dealer tells me all brands have issues...I guess I’m the idiot for thinking a new truck should be reliable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. My 1960 Chevy had torsion bars. They had them until 1963 for 2wd longer for heavy duty trucks. My dads 3ton grain truck has them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Mine stayed in 2nd gear - happened at 25,000km. Was initially told it required trans replacement but ended up being faulty connectors and shorted shift control module. Replaced ECM and shift module and it has been fine since. Overall I am happy with 8spd Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I hate to admit it but I am almost there. I do still love this truck but it’s getting to me with all the trips to the dealer. It was a great truck until 15,000km. It’s been in and out of the shop for the last 12,000km for brake issues, power brake issues, replaced ECM, replaced TSCM, replaced PSCM. Faulty plug on some transmission wires that caused the truck to stay in 2nd gear at all times (thankfully wasn’t the transmission like they originally told me). Just got it back yesterday fire it up this afternoon after work and get a CEL for emissions. All makes have issues but this is more than my last F150 and Ram. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have heard people mention that the transmission has to learn. Is that a thing or is it BS? Just curious as I just had ECM, shift module, and a few other things done to my truck. I’m curious what it “learns”. What happens if I drive in sport mode full time - does that affect anything it learns. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Wonder how long I’m going to have to wait...they are replacing the transmission [emoji51] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My 3 day old loaner 2020 Silverado is doing this. Makes me crazy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Was just told it is catastrophic failure and that the transmission needs to be replaced. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Fuel pump priming up. It’s normal. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Well it is now stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear at all times. [email protected]“& On top of that had a different brake issue while driving today. Instead of the usual losing the power assist (recall programming issue) the brakes felt super spongey and easy to push. There was no brakes or full lock up. Nothing in between. So driving 80km/hr at 3500rpm with sketchy brakes in a snow storm all the way home was nice. It goes in tomorrow for a list of work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hoping for the best. I was happy with it so hopefully it’s part of the computer problems that have been happening on my truck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Mine is a May build. Seems to me like a computer issue the way it acts. Going in Wednesday- will post update. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Started truck yesterday, idled down and put into gear. It clunked into drive, kind of like when you put it into geared when revving a bit. Took off like I was in 2nd or 3rd and wouldn’t shift. Pulled over shut truck off and restarted and it works fine. All day yesterday running errands if it was parked more than 5 mins it would do it again. Shut off and restart and it’s normal - frustrating. Anyone else? What was the cause/remedy? It goes to the dealer soon for the brake recall issue that I have been dealing with since mid-December as well as regular maintenance so want to have back up info to make sure they address it.

  14. I actually think at this point I paid a little extra for this option lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. This is the third 5.3 I’ve owned and it just seemed lower than I remember the other two running at. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
