Anyone else noticing paint (?) chipping off the outer ring of the crankshaft pulley / harmonic balancer on their 6.2L (maybe affects 5.3L also)? it's a 2021 LT TB 6.2L w/ 7700 miles. I can't tell you how long it's been this way, I just purchased it. Should I be concerned? What is that ring, is it an oil seal or plastic ring? Not sure why paint would be chipping off. Thanks in advance
Cooler hose leak
lovecars posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingWhenever I buy a new vehicle it's my habit to always check all around the truck, inside engine compartment, under seats, etc.... my first new car was a 1976 GMC JImmy... So I'm a veteran at new cars, trucks. I have also always worked on my cars, From Corvettes, 4x4's, etc I've owned. Over the years of inspecting my brand new cars/trucks/etc. I've found screws, plastic plugs, wire ties, sound deadener goop from a Cadillac, and over 50 frame clips for gas aluminum tubes on a 1975 Dodge Ramcharger 4x4 (jingling on bumps) ass wipe line guy decided to screw with someone.... Well enough war stories. On my 2105 Siverado y did the same I saw a hose pretty close (1") to the crankshaft pulley..... tried to move it away but it didn't, so I left it alone.... well my truck with 12000 plus miles decided to leak a bunch of oil one day as I was working on passing a wire from the engine compartment to the passenger compartment, i noticed about a pint of oil leaking from the front of the motor. Well, it turned out that the hose that was too close when i bought the truck it finally decided to fall in love with the crankshaft pulley and it got a hole rubbed by it.... I was glad it happened close to home and not 1000 miles away on a long 6 hr freeway trip. 2 hr fix... Dealer issues not counted... it took the 5 days to get to it... maybe they had better customers that me coming in as I was told by the service manager....
