  1. I need to take a picture of this setup, it might be relevant, but my trans shop installed three aftermarket coolers with one Giant high flow in the front. I barely get over 150 now! He supposedly fabricated some stuff to get it to work
  2. Ive used my bottle jack maybe a hundred'sh times? Just until recently it was the only jack ive ever used. havent greased it either, probably should Super durable IMO. I should take a picture of it....
  3. They certainly are. I will not get under a car without resting it on a jackstand but im totally comfortable jacking a truck up on flat pavement or surface with one. to be fair, ive seen flimsy scissor jacks fair worse then the bottle oem ones
  4. How do you jack the truck up under the control arm? Honestly Ive never had an issue with the narrow base and Ive abused the heck out of it. Just sounds dangerous.
  5. Is the shake thing still an issue nowadays? I see some really low mileage 15-16's out there. I suppose its an easy diagnosis tho, drive it and see if it shakes.
  6. I test drove a really nice 2015 denali 2500 gas. I noticed on the highway it vibrates noticeably at highway speed 70mph. The sales agent with me said it was the road surface and other roads it feels smooth as butter. vibrating seemed worse towards the back. is this the infamous "chevy shake"? Should I just stay away? It looks like its got brand new tires, looks well aligned and very well taken care of. 50k miles. I drove a new diesel 2019 2500hd w/t and noticed some much slighter vibrations on same road

  9. Im baffled how this happened. They said the pump seal or whatever is "staked" in place and needs a tremendous amount of energy to push it forward. My only educated guess is the remanufactures torque converter failed. The funny thing is I googled electric arcing and there is at least one thread on a diff site and diff vehicle that hypothesized the same concern. I have no reason to doubt the mechanics there, they have a good reputation.
  10. Possible a bad ground will destroy the seals on my rebuilt transmission? There was pitting and scrapes on the shaft, to dumb down the lingo I dont understand, the pump seal blew away from the torque converter I do believe I have a ground problem and I will begin hunting that down...may also be why I trip p0101? wish I took some pictures at the shop, but he thinks electricity somehow arced into the tranny and caused massive heat or other failure. only had 20k on my rebuilt 4l60e and it was built with high quality aftermarket parts
  11. Not to Necro this thread, but I have had that noise for a while. On a long trip it started to get really loud and very obvious and shortly after my torque converter completely failed and I blew all of my transmission fluid in a white cloud behind me. I was only 12,000 miles into a rebuilt transmission with quality parts and installed by a reputable company. I am waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this week
  12. You got tall grass? You need to make the environment less hospitable. Get some stray tomcats to hang around outside i know people hate them....but glue traps work
  13. I blew my transmission on vacation I got a UHAUL 2020 1500 single cab 8' bed and omg it pulls so much better then my 02' 1500 5.3. I need to check what engine is in it...i suspect its not the 5.3 either Lol 4,000lb camper got 11mpg doing 60-70mph flat land
  14. Wow, coolant loss and oil leaks? Sounds like a lemon. Someone asleep at the assembly line. Last few cars Ive bought I take a really powerful flashlight and spend several minutes on the pavement looking at the undercarriage. There is a lot you can tell about the mechanical condition by checking out that. One thing Ive noticed dealers do is they pressure wash everything, even the inside of the engine bay. Once or twice maybe no big deal, but the engine bays are not designed to get soaked with high volumes of water!
