  1. Hey guys I'm new to the forums. I was wondering where I can find the A/c drain hole and pipes on a 2013 LT Silverado 4x4, I have been having water pouring under my radio console into my carpet.
  2. I just bought a used 2013 GMC 2500HD 6.0L 2WD 82K miles. I had never driven a 2500HD 6.0L / 4.10 only a 5.3L / 3.73 and noticed two drivability issues that seem strange to me. Starting from a stop the truck seems very sluggishwhen acceleratin unless you put your whole foot into it and the shifts seem very soft and short almost not noticeable especially the 1-2 shift. I compare this to my 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3L / 3.73 which I totaled in March. I would have expected the larger 6.0L with 4.10 to have more power and torque vs my 5.3L / 3.73 but it doesn't feel that way. My 2008 1500 was weighed down by almost 2000 pounds of bed cap, sliding bed and tools but seemed to have better acceleration and firm shifts than an empty 2500HD 6.0L. Any thoughts on expected drivability behavior would be appreciated. Is it normal operating behavior? If not, what could be the issue? Would a programmer like a DIablo i3 fix improve the drivability behavior I'm noticing ? I know that the Diablo die make a difference on my 2008 especially firming up the shifts.
  3. I just bought a used 2013 GMC 2500HD. As I was driving from the dealership I discovered that the tilt up direction on the driver side tow mirror would not work. All other directions (tilt down, left, right) work fine. What could cause this? The switch? The actuator / motor?
  4. 2013 GMC Acadia sunroof not closing flush. My sunroof will not close flush or open to vent mode. It opens fully, upon closing does not quick close but stops short about 2inches then have to press the close button again. When in close mode, the sunroof does not close flush at back part. When trying to open to vent mode, sunroof will not pop up. I have read to reset it by holding the vent mode button until sunroof cycles through opening and closing but it has not worked. It sits about 2mm below threashold when in close mode.
  5. I have a low beam out on my 2013 1500. I'd like to replace them with leds but I'm not sure which ones play well with the auto lights and drl stuff. Anyone have suggestions or reviews on leds that are on the current market?
  6. Ok, I know this sounds weird, but I want an answer so I will cut to the chase. Are there any conversion kits for a 2013 Sierra that transform the front end into a 2013 Silverado? I am asking because I have a 2013 sierra and a 2013 silverado and I like the Silverado look better. I am trying to build identical Prerunners and my silverado is finished. All I want are the grill, headlights, etc. I don’t even need a hood since I am using aftermarket Cowl hoods. I’ve searched anywhere but all of the conversion kits are for people who are either turning the chevy’s into gmcs or making them look newer.
  7. Good morning guys, Obviously I'm new to the forums, so thank you in advance for your understanding! A little background on my situation -- I always make sure to maintain my vehicle to the best of my ability (both proactively and within my financial budget), but my Chevy Silverado just hit it's 75,000 mile mark with no previous transmission fluid maintenance. 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500 (Standard Work Vehicle) Pre-Certified with 3,008 miles on it, pretty much brand-new -- Purchased in Oct, 2013 4.3 Liters V6 Engine 75,600 miles currently The only thing it's ever towed is the smallest Uhaul for about 600/miles, and sod back in the day. For the past couple of years I've only driven it to and from work (50 miles round trip in city/highway), but for the most part this past year my new place of employment is super close, so that dwindled to around 25 miles round-trip. I've only ever replaced the engine oil and filter regularly, and tires a year ago, so when it comes to how I should maintenance the transmission oil, that's a bit foreign to me unfortunately. I've heard if you make it passed 70k with no issues, it's not wise to flush it out entirely, but more so the 50/50 (old/new) method? I would like some advice from you tenured vets on this, and to see if I should take it to the Chevy dealer or a transmission specialist? Thanks again!
  8. So in my auto shop class in high school I brought my truck in to do the front pads, I changed the pads, retainers but I pulled the caliper all the way off to clean them. They go back on fine, I gravity bled them and then pressure bled them, they are as hard as rock, start the truck up, no brakes at all we tried using the abs bleeding system still nothing. We tried bleeding them with the truck running and it just went to the floor and no fluid came out and trust me the master cylinder reservoir is at the full line. Thanks, Ed P.S. 2013 Silverado 1500 LT Drum brakes in the rear, We did NOT bleed the rear brakes since we didn’t touch them.
  9. Have a custom mid-pipe I built to install an aftermarket muffler (Magnaflow 12909) in my 2015 2500hd 6.0 truck. I removed the muffler and went back to stock so have this left over. This makes a cleaner install and saves your mid pipe if you want to revert back to stock. The aftermarket mufflers don't have as much offset as factory and the factory mid-pipe has a offset in it that accounts for that. With this straight mid-pipe it works perfect with the less offset of the aftermarket muffler and allows everything to be installed level with the truck. Here is my post about the muffler with additional info: I had this on a crew cab, 6.5' bed 4x4 truck. I'm sure other cab/bed configurations might need this lengthened or shortened but at least the hard part of the flange and hangers are done. Asking $75 for this custom mid-pipe. How it looked installed. muffler not included. Factory muffler to show the drop offset in the original mid-pipe.
  10. Hello all. I am about to purchase a new vehicle and am considering a 2014-2016 silverado 1500. Im wondering if anyone here has any of these years that has put a lot of kms on it. I wondering how reliable they are and what problems if any you have ran into with them. The reason I'm asking is because I purchased a subscription to Consumer Reports and Reliability was only a 2/5 and overall satisfaction was a 3/5. I just paid off a 2011 F150 a year ago and now it has a stretched timing chain @ 140k. I really don't want to buy a piece of shit again. Also, the dealership gave me a 2014 1500 to try out for a few days and i really loved the truck except for one thing. In comparison to my F150 it was an extremely rough ride. It seems like every dam bump on the highway was pretty jarring. Even my lady friend noticed it clearly and she doesn't give a shit about anything when it comes to vehicles. I've heard gm/chevy ride a little stiffer but this seemed pretty bad. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  12. I need help figuring this one out, I just bought this Yukon XL (100k) and drove it home (about two hours of driving) and I had a fluid puddle on my driveway the next day. So I checked it out and the only spot where I could find any “leakage” was from the drivers side motor mount. There were no other apparent fluid leaks or spills from anywhere else. I took it in to have it looked and and the liquid had dried and only left minor stains. He thought I was crazy at this point. I asked the tech if he could check the parts listing to see if it was fluid filled. He came back with a engine mount checklist which states to check for fluid leaks from the mount if equipped with GLYCOL(i.e. coolant) but also said he doesn’t see any signs of a leak even after I showed him pictures and he pulled up the inspection checklist. I need proof that the mount needs replaced because the fluid has leaked out. GLYCOL dries to show very little sign of leakage. How much fluid could he expect the mount to hold to keep leaking? How can I know for sure that this mount is the fluid filled kind or not? I took pictures of all of this.
  13. Hi there, this is a two part post, so please bare with me, First, I'm wondering what everyone recommends for lift/level on a 2013 Siverado. It is a Z71 4x4, and the previous owner had installed Monroe shocks and struts. There is 1.25 inch blocks on the rear leafs (leaves?), but I can't tell how much lift the front shocks gave the truck, and what it would look like when I take those out and put a new lift/level kit in. Second, I'm wondering whether this setup is considered a level, and if that's the case, how can I gain as much more ground clearance as possible without stressing the driveline and axles too much. I currently have 265/70/r18 tires on the truck and I know tires are what give the truck ground clearance so I guess bigger tires is what I'm really looking for?Any inout is very much appreciated!
  14. OK HERE WE GOOOO!!! I have a 2013 GMC Sierra Nevada 4.8. I live in Manitoba Canada where for 10 months out of the year it is below freezing! Last week we had a warm day so while my wife was shopping I decided to turn on the AC while I was waiting for her, I got the 3 flash light and it went off, I thought it was because it was to cool still. Than I noticed me temp gauge start to rise. I have owned this truck since it was new and pull a small 5th wheel around with it I have never seen the temp gauge move before. So I sat there waiting to here the fan kick on... It never did, slowly the temp went back down, but within 15 minutes it was back up again. I'm wondering is it possible that a fan relay could be gone and that is why the highspeed fan never kicked in as well as why the AC won't work. I also tried it yesterday and had the same problem.... I'm stumped!
  15. My 2010 Sierra Crew Cab has the automatic climate controls and a problem that may be more common than I think. The temperature on the driver side doesn't warm up no matter the temp setting while the passenger side seems to work just fine. I tried switching between Auto and Manual modes, doesn't help. I hear a click down by my feet which I assume is the blend door actuator for my side. What is involved in changing the blend door actuator? How do I know that's the problem and not the controller? Why do the fail? Do the plastic gears break or the little motor burn up? Any suggestions or diagrams of the heater box would be very helpful. Thanks.

  17. i have a 99 sierra 2500 and want to drop a 2013 sierra 2500 engine into it. my question is, how hard will it be to do this. i am mechanically inclined and know i can mechanically fit this engine in my 99 by modifying a few things, but i am concerned on the electrical. i know i will have to use the ecu and wiring harness off the 2013 but i definitely need advise before i get into this massive project. i have the complete totaled doner car so i can use whatever i need of that. i am really concerned with the electrical and how to connect it to my 99. will this be possible? easy as plug and play? thanks so much in advance.
  18. Takata is a global airbag manufacturer who supplies parts to many automakers, including Honda, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, and General Motors. 7.8-million vehicles have been recalled so far for airbags that partially disintegrate, sending shrapnel flying when triggered. For comparison, General Motor produced over 6.5-million of the last generation pickups and SUVs from 2006 until 2013. It is unknown if the redesigned 2014+ models share similar versions of the potentially faulty airbag. GM-Trucks.com has contacted General Motors for clarification. General Motors said plans include forcing Takata to share the design of the airbag with its direct competitors to allow more production capacity. Stay with GM-Trucks.com for updates. As drivers of a 2011 GMC Sierra, we will be following this news closely. Source: Yahoo Finance
  19. By Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 12/20/2014 The answer is looking like "yes". General Motors is actively preparing "contingency plans" in case the automaker has to issue another round of recalls related to the Takata Airbag scandal. According to Reuters and Yahoo, a spokesman for the company acknowledged yesterday that the GMT-900 based Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Sierra, Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade would be among the next vehicles recalled if the issue widened. Takata is a global airbag manufacturer who supplies parts to many automakers, including Honda, Toyota, Ford, Nissan, and General Motors. 7.8-million 21-million vehicles have been recalled globally so far for airbags that partially disintegrate, sending shrapnel flying when triggered.

As drivers of a 2011 GMC Sierra, we will be following this news closely. Update: General Motor's representative Alan Adler tells us "There are no known air bag issues with the GMT900 full-size trucks. There is no recall planned. GM uses multiple air bag suppliers, sometimes more than one on a vehicle. All air bags are tested as components, in systems and finally on vehicles before production begins." Update 2: 12/23/14 - GM would not clarify any additional statement and would not explain why the Reuters/Yahoo article mentioned the GMT-900 trucks if there was no concern. Source: Yahoo Finance

  22. GM's March 2014 sales data was released just a few minutes ago and the numbers are not very strong for Silverado year to date but look better when comparing March year to year. Silverado Sales March 2014: 42,247 March 2013: 39,561 YTD 2014: 107,757 YTD 2013: 116,649 So, Chevy sold 2,686 MORE trucks in March 2014 compared to March 2013. However, year to date sales are down 8,892. Sierra Sales March 2014: 16,863 March 2013: 13,817 YTD 2014: 42,213 YTD 2013: 40,796 These numbers work out to GMC selling 3,046 MORE trucks in March 2014 compared to March 2013. Year to date, GMC has sold 1,417 more trucks than last year to date. Combined Sales March 2014: 59,110 March 2013: 53,378 YTD 2014: 149,970 YTD 2013: 157,445 What does this all mean? Combined, General Motors sold 5,732 MORE trucks in March 2014 vs March 2013. However, year to date in 2014, General Motors has sold 7,475 LESS trucks than in 2013. IMPORTANT GM does not break out Light Duty & Heavy Duty in sales figures, so this information is harder to compare. We may be losing numbers in the new HD switch-over, which would mitigate the lower numbers OR they could be as bad as they look. We have no idea. As more automakers put out their numbers, we'll get a better picture if this is a GM problem or an industry problem. I've attached the sales numbers in PDF format for everyone to see/interpret themselves. Deliveries-Mar-2014.pdf Deliveries-Mar-2014.pdf Deliveries-Mar-2014.pdf Deliveries-Mar-2014.pdf
  23. We're gearing up for a rocking week at SEMA and even though the show doesn't start until Tuesday, we're ready to start spilling the beans on what GM has up their sleeve for this year's show. Now, we've all been hoping that the Silverado SS would eventually make a comeback but up until today things didn't look too good. It's not an SS, but the Silverado Cheyenne concept is a high-performance variant of the new 2014 Silverado that looks as if it isn't too far off from production. Enjoy the news and check back tomorrow morning and all this week for more SEMA announcements Silverado Cheyenne Concept Highlights Performance Oriented Regular Cab 2014 Silverado Equipped with a 420-horsepower 6.2L V8 Focus on reducing weight Lowered ride-height and rear stabilizer bars Carbon-ceramic brakes from the Camaro Z/28 Weight saving efforts reduced the Cheyenne's weight by 200lbs Z/28 inspired hood extractor vent Carbon-fiber front bumper and rear spoiler Light-weight aluminum drive-shaft Composite rear springs Spare tire, trailer hitch, interior console have been removed for weight savings Rides on 19-inch Camaro Z/28 wheels Recaro Seats Flat bottomed steering wheel similar to Camaro ZL1 “It is only a concept right now, but we are continually exploring new ways to give Silverado customers more.” - Chris Perry Official Press Release Silverado Cheyenne Concept: Mini Mass, Max Performance LAS VEGAS – The Chevrolet Silverado Cheyenne concept vehicle to be unveiled at the SEMA Show on Monday, Nov. 4, embraces the adage that less is more. The performance-oriented version of the all-new 2014 Silverado regular cab combines a reduced curb weight with the performance of the new 420-horsepower 6.2L V-8 for a strong power-to-weight ratio and exhilarating performance. A lowered ride height, a rear stabilizer bar and Brembo carbon ceramic brakes complement the Cheyenne concept’s high-performance character with enhanced handling and braking capability. “The Cheyenne concept explores the performance possibilities of the all-new Silverado, which is already built on a mass-efficient layout and delivers a greater balance of performance and efficiency than any other full-size truck in Chevrolet’s history,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. The unique lightweight features built into the concept vehicle include carbon fiber replacements for the bumpers, tailgate and inner cargo box, shaving approximately 200 pounds from the 4,503 pounds base curb weight of a 5.3L-equipped Silverado regular cab with a 6’6” box. Cheyenne designers matched the form of the lightweight components with their low-mass function. The carbon fiber front bumper includes racing-inspired ground effects styling complemented by carbon body-side ground effects while the carbon fiber tailgate incorporates a spoiler. The hood features a Camaro Z/28-inspired extractor vent. The Camaro Z/28 Brembo carbon ceramic brakes save more weight because the carbon ceramic-matrix rotors are significantly lighter than conventional steel rotors. On the Camaro Z/28, for example, they save more than 20 pounds – and it saves un-sprung weight, too, which enhances driving performance with more immediate and direct handling. The truck rolls on charcoal-painted 19-inch Camaro Z/28 aluminum wheels and high-performance tires. The Cheyenne diet removes the trailer hitch, spare tire, interior center console and some of the sound-deadening material. The truck also has a lightweight aluminum driveshaft and composite rear leaf springs. “Lightweighting is a time-honored method of making the most of a vehicle’s performance which Chevrolet has demonstrated time and again with vehicles like the original 2001 Corvette Z06 and the 2014 Camaro Z/28,” said Perry. “And like those vehicles, the Cheyenne complements its lower weight with more horsepower.” The all-new EcoTec3 6.2L V-8 that powers the concept truck is rated at 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque – the most power in the light-duty truck segment. It’s unavailable in regular-production Silverado regular cab models, giving the Cheyenne a 65-horsepower and 77 lb-ft boost over the production 5.3L V-8. A Borla performance exhaust system adds an authoritative note to the 6.2L’s output. What remains is the Silverado’s production six-speed automatic transmission, which features hill descent control, as well as fuel-saving electric power steering and StabiliTrak electronic stability control with hill start assist. Inside, the Cheyenne’s performance theme is conveyed with Recaro sport seats and a flat-bottom steering wheel, similar to the steering wheel offered in the Camaro ZL1. Available safety features, including lane departure warning, front and rear park assist and a rear-vision camera, enhance safety without detracting from the truck’s performance. All Silverado models feature a fully boxed frame that serves as the foundation for their strength and capability. The main rails and major cross members are formed from high-strength steel, providing a rigid base for maximum hauling capability. “Elements such as high-strength steel in the frame and body structure are found on all production models, while some also feature aluminum suspension components, contributing to the Silverado’s everyday performance. With the Cheyenne concept, we’ve taken the low-mass concept to a new level – with exciting results,” Perry said. “It is only a concept right now, but we are continually exploring new ways to give Silverado customers more.” FAST FACT: Cheyenne was introduced as a premium Chevy truck trim level in 1971. The name also appeared a futuristic 2003 concept vehicle.
