  1. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-11-2018 Ford's media launch for the all-new 2019 Ranger is presently underway. One tidbit that Ford let out today is that the Ranger will have a 22 MPG Combined rating in 4X4 and 23 MPG combined in RWD versions. Those numbers are the same as the Colorado and Canyon Duramax diesels'. Normally, comparing a gasoline-powered vehicle to a similar one with a diesel engine is meaningless. Diesels are really good at two things; creating torque at low RPMs and having a high miles per gallon rating (of diesel fuel). The Ranger is a bit different. Like the new Chevy 2.7-Liter turbo gas engine, the Ranger's 2.3-liter "EcoBoost" turbocharged gasoline engine also develops outstanding torque at low RPMs. The Ranger is rated at 310 lb-ft of torque. Ford has not yet provided a curve for it and we will update our readers when they do. Expect a low RPM peak and a flat plateau over the entire normal operating speed range of the engine. Diesel is presently selling at 22% more per gallon than regular unleaded according to AAA's daily national average posting. It will be interesting to see how the Ranger pulls trailers. It may well have a similar pulling ability to the Duramax equipped midsize trucks from GM, but offer much quicker acceleration coupled with a lower cost for fuel.
  2. I just traded our 2012 BMW X5 diesel (3.0L Inline-6 asymmetrical twin-turbo, 265hp, 425tq) for a 2018 Suburban. The turbodiesel performed brilliantly in that 5200 lb SUV, and you could easily get 26-28 mpg on road trips, and it did north of 20 mpg average in local driving. I've been saying for years that a lot of these mid to large-sized SUVs are just screaming for 6-cylinder class diesel engines, so it's nice to finally see them popping up. I'd love to see this engine be an option in the next gen Suburban/Tahoe and the Yukons. Who else?
  3. Hey all, I own a 2018 Silverado 2500HD LTZ Z71...The damn headlights are that terrible yellow color, Did Chevy not put LED lights on any of the 2500 models? Has anyone replaced the whole light assembly or even just bulbs to achieve the clearer look? If so please share and checkout the photo below of my headlights compared to the illuminated bow tie. Thanks for the help.
  4. Dears, I bought my 2017 Chevy Colorado Duramax Z71 brand new and I just love it. I was super satisfied with the performance and features of the truck. Due to the nature of my job, I had to move outside the U.S for a long mission to Africa, so I took my truck with me. Here started my nightmare. Just few days of use, I had the famous warning message regarding the quality of gas (DEF). I changed several brands of DEF but no success! I read somewhere that the shelf life of the product is key for the quality of the fluid. Now my truck is kind of locked, I am allowed to drive 6 Miles/h, it means it is not working. The worse thing is that there is no GM, Chevrolet store to assist. I was thinking to delete the whole DEF system if possible since the location where I am based is not regulated by the gas emissions. I will be very grateful if you could assist as I am suffering without my car. Thanks for your help.
  5. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 10/3/18 Those wishing for some guidance on how the all new 3.0L Duramax Diesel will rate just had that wish come true. The Fast Lane Truck got the scoop from someone with access to General Motor's Canadian Dealer Portal. Promotional material that included specs for the new 3.0L were photographed and emailed to the website yesterday. That means someone with dealer access facilitated the leak. The not quite yet official figures rate the light-duty diesel engine at 282 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. The material also claims a highway rated fuel economy of 28 mpg. That's more power then both Ford and Ram's small diesels, which produce 250hp/440 lb-ft and 240hp/420 lb-ft respectively. The same spec sheets also list the towing capacity of the 3.0L at 7,800 lbs, which falls below the 5.3L and 6.2L's 9,000lb+ rating. To us this signals that GM will market the 3.0L Diesel as a daily commuter for someone who occasionally tows. What do you think about the ratings and capability? Chime in on this thread in our 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra forum.
  6. Brake Errors During DPF Regen

    I have a mystery: I get the ABS and Brake Light error warning lights ONLY DURING REGEN. The speedo, all gauges and the brakes work fine. The lights go out after restarting, but will come back if regen is still happening. I can pull the following codes: C0055-0f invalid data received from electronic brake control module - signal erratic U0100-7f lost communication with engine control module bus - signal erratic I've checked all the chassis grounds, battery grounds (all .3 or .4 ohms) and the condition of both batteries (both 12.7 volts after sitting over a week). I have replaced the vehicle speed sensor to no avail. I'd like to think that the EBCM is not bad since it works fine when there's no regen happening. However, I still need to check the ground to it's connector. And I am open to replacing it since it's only $130. So, here are my questions: Does anyone know the ground pin(s) of the EBCM connector? If I get the exact EBCM unit, does it have to be reprogrammed for a 100% stock truck? (stock wheels/tires) Does anyone have access to any dealer TSB for this condition or have any other insight? the truck: 2013 GMC 3500 Duramax, dually, crew cab, SLE, 4x4, only 25k miles, clean and pampered thanks in advance!
  7. Hello. I bought a 2018 Chevy Silverado Duramax 2500HD High Country. We recently took it on a long trip with the travel trailer, and since I had never owned a diesel before, I had no idea what DEF was. We were on the freeway, about a 100 miles from a gas station. I checked my gauge in the truck and the DEF fluid was "ok" and then 30 miles down the road it was not ok. I was wondering if there was a way to check the fluid, either by the computer in the truck or is there a dip stick that I can purchase after market? Thanks for the help. Sue
  8. Hey what's up everyone. Not sure if this is where to ask this or not. I'm looking to upgrade from a chevy 2002 1500 z71 to a 2500 chevy or gmc I've been looking from about 2004 and up. The biggest issue I'm trying to decide right now is gas or diesel. I am a mechanic but never worked or messed with diesels.So I tow a open car trailer and racecar in the summer during race season right now about 6,000-7,000lbs depending on which car is on it. I do tow some other stuff here and there too. But I would like the ability to tow more and to have something better for long distance trips and driving/ towing in the mountains. Now mountain trips would probably be less then a handful of times a year. Unless we really decided we liked racing at the track out there then might go a few more times. I don't plan for the truck to be a daily driver. I've put about 20,000 on my 1500 I have now in the 8 years I've had it. About 2-3 years of that was daily driving. Now whatever I do get I plan on having for a good while probably at least 10+ years I would say. And also want to be prepared if I ever upgrade to an enclosed trailer or ever got a camper etc.. What I do know right now is 6.0 is a gas hog, Duramax will give you better fuel economy and obviously better when it comes to towing. I know Lbz trucks seem to be the ones everyone says are the best to go for. But I don't know if I do enough hauling to justify the added expenses and maintenance for a Duramax. Also just trying to figure out what the best years, engine, and trans combos are to look for and any other issues either of these trucks have to be aware of. Sorry if this was too big of a post or not the right place to put this but Any advice help or opinions are greatly appreciated.
  9. I am wanting to know what all parts and items i need to delete a 2015 gmc 2500 denali hd
  10. Hi All this is my first time posting here. I hope i got the right area and am doing this right. Anyways, I have read a few post about 'do i buy a truck with 8.1l or a Duramax.' Well my situation is a little different. I have a '05 2500 Suburban with a 496 and 4L85E. My 496 is burning oil like non other and everyone (including 3 dealerships) says to just rebuild/replace motor since I have 176K miles on her. I have always wanted to send my suburban to Eric at Duraburb and get a duramax & Allison put in. But now that I am in a position that I HAVE to get something done, I dont know which direction would be the best overall choice. I am stuck between getting the Duramax put in or getting a Raylar Motor which is bumped up to a 540ci! I have always loved my gas motors and had no issues. But have always thought, well i have a 2500 rig a nicely tuned diesel would be a great way to go. But after finding the Raylar guys and their motor a almost 700 hp 540ci suburban sounds pretty bas ass too! She's my daily driver. We sold the boat a few years ago and are looking to replace it with a 28ft or larger travel trailer or a Tritoon boat. So she still needs to be able to tow. Any personal thoughts on which way to go are welcome! Thanks in advance for any feedback.
  11. Hello everyone, I just bought this used 06 Duramax 2500hd crew cab. So the guy that had this truck before me put a screw through the harness going through the driver door towards the bottom that runs all the lock/unlock door open windows etc. Etc. The window controls on the driver side work, but not the door lock/unlock. The passenger lock/unlock works, and driver rear door power lock does not work at all.. the guy that put the system in re-spliced the wires but it's still not working. He thinks either the control module got semi-fried, or the buttons in the door got semi-fried because he said lock/windows/and mirror controls are all one unit with it's own little computer. If anyone has any tips on how to trouble shoot this I would be very appreciative, and also any idea on where to get a newer looking driver door interior panel because all the clips to hold the bottom it were broken off and replaced with, you guessed it, a screw! It's the tan interior, other that that the thing looks almost new. Thank you in advance for the help!!
  12. Zane Merva & John Goreham GM-Trucks.com 10/16/2015 The time has finally arrived. You are just weeks away from being able to buy General Motor’s 2.8L Duramax Diesel in the midsize Colorado and Canyon. Two GM-Trucks.com staffers recently had a chance to take a 2016 GMC Canyon with this engine for a spin and here’s what we thought. Zane: The 2.8L Duramax is an engine that will extend the capability of the Colorado and Canyon to within a stone's throw of the full-size Silverado and Sierra. From the moment you turn the key, there’s no mistaking this as a diesel engine. Noticeably louder than GM’s other gas engine offerings, owners will probably enjoy that their pickup sounds remarkably similar to the bigger 6.6L Duramax V8. In our short drive time we were impressed by the massive amounts of low end torque for a vehicle of this size. 369 lb-ft of torque at only 2,000 rpm goes a long way. However, with only 181-horsepower, the Canyon 4x4 crew cab we drove didn’t feel as quick as its 3.6L gas-powered counterpart. Point the nose of the GMC up a steep hill and the Duramax diesel’s benefits are immediately apparent. Nothing is going to stop this truck once it gets moving and you feel like the hand of God has your back. Acceleration is smooth and linear through the entire engine range. That’s the experience diesel truck buyers want and GM has given it to them. Bolder, louder and purposeful in nature. Oh and did we mention fuel economy? Prepare to be impressed. We saw over 30 mpg on our drive loop. GM executive Mark Reuss confirmed to us that the final EPA number should be very close to our results. That would place the Colorado and Canyon has the most fuel efficient trucks you could buy. No wonder GM is exploring options to increase the number of Colorado and Canyon it can build. John: What struck me first was the great look of the Canyon. Particularly from the front ¾ view. I had just left off-road testing in a 2016 Tacoma and in terms of looks, the Canyon wins hands-down. My tester was a $45,280 SLT Crew Cab with 4WD. Trucks are expensive now, but this one had it all. Premium Bose audio and Nav ($500), Spray in bedliner ($475) and Chrome assist steps ($725). I was impressed that the Canyon had Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert at no extra charge. That will cost you $500 on a Tacoma. The biggest single adder was the $3,730 Duramax engine. Although that buys a lot of gasoline, the Duramax has benefits beyond fuel economy to its fans. Hills surrounded the venue we were attending, and they were steep. Like Zane, I was immediately impressed by how strong the Canyon I drove felt. I too noted the fuel economy. Over the past 50 miles that it had been driven in rural NY the vehicle had averaged 22.2 MPG and its peak had been 34.5 MPG (according to the truck). Writers at this event were passing up track time in a Corvette to drive the Canyon on-road. It was one of the most popular vehicles at the event. The new Canyon and Colorado Duramax will not disappoint. GM is proud of this new truck, and as Zane’s interview with Mark Reuss proves, GM is looking hard for places to build more. The Canyon Duramax looks, drives, and acts like a winner.
  13. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 1-17-2018 General Motors announced today it will build the new 3.0-liter Duramax diesel engine in Flint Michigan. The company will invest $263 million to prepare the line for the new engine build. Flint Engine, as the plant is called, presently builds small four-cylinder gasoline engines for GM vehicles, but has produced Duramax engines in the past. “The next-generation Silverado builds on the success of our current models, many of which are produced here in Flint. We are proud to expand the industry-leading diesel portfolio here in Vehicle City,” said John Urbanic, Flint Engine Operations plant manager. The 2.8-liter Duramax engine that GM uses in the Colorado and Canyon are built in Rayong, Thailand. This new move by GM to bring the Durmax production stateside and invest heavily in a plant to build the engine, leads us to speculate that the 3.0-liter engine will likely be used in more vehicles than just the Silverado. The GMC Sierra will get the engine, and possibly GM’s large SUVs. It may even supplant the 2.8-liter engine now used in the Colorado and Canyon at some future point.
  14. Picked up a new GMC 2017 Duramax 2500HD that came leveled with 2.5-inch shock extensions, new torsion keys and 20x9 Fuel wheels w/ 305 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. With this setup do I need to be concerned with CV angles? Would adding UCA’s and new shocks improve things? If so, what option would you suggest? Cognito, CST, Fabtech… Bilstein, Fox... This truck will spend most of it's time on the road with only short offlroad runs to and from the trail head. I’d consider a proper 4-6” lift cranked down with 35’s but I’m worried about fitting into my parking structure. Also, I already have the 305’s and don’t want the wheel well gap or to worry about selling the 305’s. Currently the truck sits at about 80 inches; the same height as my buddy’s raptor that fits the parking structure with not much room to spare. How tall are you guys running a 4-6” lift on 35’s? Anybody running 4-6” on 33’s? Anybody have any feedback on the 3-6" S.T.L. High Clearance lift kit from CST? Also, for the cost of the 3-6” lift w/ a decent shock option, why not go with the coilover conversion from BDS? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
  15. Zane Merva Executive Editor, GM-Trucks.com 3/13/2017 Just in time for a huge March Nor'Easter, we're getting our first opportunity to drive the heavily updated 2017 Silverado HD on our home turf.

Stay tuned for more updates to this thread later today and as the week goes on!
  16. CASH TALKS! TEXT ME OR CALL 406-690-537I TO DISCUSS, TEXT PREFERRED AS I WORK OUT OF CELL SERVICE OFTEN. Selling my beloved 2007 GMC Duramax Diesel, last year of the best of the LBZ model code. No emissions from the factory to deal with, and considered to be the best model of duramax ever made. This is a very clean truck, I looked long and hard to find this, and it is my 3rd lbz GM truck. No leaks no drips no check engine lights nothing. Ready for anything and will last forever, I see these trucks on the forums over a half million miles getting beat on daily and running forever, this has been babied. Yes I am asking over book and considering offers, please realize this truck has had a lot more than the average truck has had put into it. Really like buying a brand new truck with everything completely done. Truck is awesome all around. The front seats are showing light wear but no rips, rears and rest of interior looks like new. A couple light paint chips on the front bumper, and I have all factory touch up paints. That's it for imperfections. THIS TRUCK IS CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. I hate selling, however this truck is such a garage queen it makes it hard for me to justify keeping. I started a new position shortly after purchasing the truck and have a work vehicle I use the marjority of the time. The truck is only used for weekend soccer interstate trips etc. I am the 3rd owner, first was in california and second was in billings and was an oil worker, and it was a garage queen its life. I purchased the truck and did extensive upgrades and reliability modifications to make it the perfect truck in my eyes. I have spent thousands in upgrades and countless hours and extensive labor charges to get the truck to where it is today. This will make someone a reliable powerful vehicle for many years to come with everything done. Always ran premium diesel and Stanadyne with every fillup. Truck is fully loaded slt model, every available option except leaking sunroof. Bose stereo, power heated leather etc etc. I will do my best to list everything I can think of about the truck. I am sure I will miss much as so much has been done it is hard to even remember it all. Everything was done with reliability in mind first, and performance second. I have most of the stock parts as well that have been removed. Upgrades and performance modifications... Allison deep transmission pan and new gasket with all new filters. Transgo jr shift kit. Fleece all on module Duramax store transmission cooler line kit upgrade (replaces notorious oem leaking lines) Professionally installed rough country 3" lift kit, including new steering stabilizer, 4 new shocks, new rear block, new upper control arms with better angle for ball joint lift, new torsion keys. Also did new pitman and idler arm at this time and full alignment. 16" XD wheels with 33" Cooper AT3 tires, maybe 5k miles on tires. SDP PCV reroute kit AFE Series 2 intake with afe pre filter 4" MBRP mufflered exhaust with black tip. 3" MBRP downpipe MBRP uppipe Sinister EGR delete kit Edge Insight Gauge Monitor with egt into passenger side exhaust header. Gauge is mounted in dash pod and professionally wired. Airdog 165 lift pump Capped resonator Fleece headlight modification (allows fogs brights lows driving to all be on simultaneously) Full window tint with vent visors. 2 sets of weathertech floor mats, one still new in box. Trailer brake Snugtop Topper color matched and fitted for the truck, matches the lines perfect. 5th wheel rails in bed GMC Gatorback heavy duty mudflaps Lund chrome nerf bars Blacked out led taillights EFI LIVE by Idaho rob at atp in Idaho, comes with efi live tuner. If you are not familiar with efi live tuning take some time to read up on google, it is amazing what it does for these trucks and Idaho Rob is considered among the best tuners in the business. Truck was tuned after all modifications were completed and comes with 5 tunes that are able to be shifted on the fly with the dsp 5 switch mounted in the cigarette lighter spot and is tuned for the transmission with shift kit. Tunes range from optimized stock, tow tune with turbo tow brake, 90hp eco, 120 street, and 150 hot race, and are changeable simply by turning the switch from positions 1 through 5. I have used the tow tune and the eco tune primarily, as I get older I enjoy cruising more than speeding. The truck does have the ability to really pull however in the higher tunes. Very clean tuning with almost no smoke except in tune 5 where it will smoke a little when getting after it. Truck has not been rodded, adult owned and driven always. Maintenance items completed... All completed within the last 6 months. Repeat drain and fills of both differentials with 500k mile synthetic delo dif fluid. Repeat drain and fill of transmission and allison filters using only transynd fluid. (Internal filter also change with the deep pan addition.) New oem gm radiator hoses and coolant filled drained and filled multiple times. Hyperlube racing coolant additive added on last fillup. New oem thermostats Brake fluid flushed twice, filled with Valvoline synthetic brake fluid. Power steering flushed twice, filled with blue line synthetic power steering fluid. Midas full alignment after lift kit installation. 4 wheel tire balance. Full midas inspection showing everything in the good green category. New intermediate dorman problem solver steering shaft and bearing kit (fixes notorious oem clunking steering problem) New spicer lifetime greasable ujoints All zerks repeatedly greased with lucas red and tacky Recharged air conditioning. Turbo Vane cleaning done. Synthetic oils and oem filters, oem airdog liftpump filters. Truck is ready to go. Title in hand, lien through local bank which my wife works at and all title work can be done at bank on day of sale. I may consider delivery for a fee, depending on how far etc. I may consider a partial trade on a cheaper vehicle (under 5kish) with your cash offer. Would need to know all vehicle details. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY PLEASE!!! I am working huge hours right now and don't have time for tire kickers. Vin available upon request. Truck is located in billings montana and can be viewed at almost any time. I will try to get more pictures up of the truck as time allows. First picture is current with topper, other pic just to show how it looks without topper.
  17. I just traded my 2014 Silverado half ton for a Duramax. Always wanted a diesel. Here she is at the dealer.

  19. I just bought a 2500HD Duramax back in December and I want to replace the piece between the headlights, (not the main grille just the insert). I would like to get a painted black one, given that is what color my truck is. The plastic one is all faded and nasty looking. Anyone have any suggestions as far as official name and places to look? Thanks
  20. So I am looking at getting my first diesel, and I am seeing multiple dealerships doing this combo (7.5" lift on 35s and 22 wheels) on the 2500s. What kind on MPGs should I expect with this setup on the new Chevrolet duramax 2500? I figured it wouldn't lose too many mpgs since I am not jumping all the way to 37s. Thanks for any info!! Mark
  21. Hi All I have a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD crew cab long bed powered by the LB7 Duramax. it currently has the super quiet stock exhaust, and i want to make it louder as cheap as possible. does anyone know if there is a muffler delete, a pipe to bypass the huge muffler? and also how about the turbo silencer, is it removable? thanks, Jim

  23. Hello All, I had started another thread but feel that this may be a better place to post. 2017 Denali 2500HD Duramax, 837 Miles on the truck and the dealer is reporting to me that the Turbo has failed. There were no check engine lights or codes present, just a hellacious noise and lack of power. The truck would not go 30mph wide open throttle but idled perfectly fine. The dealer is telling me that engineering is involved but currently has no resolution, they have had the truck for 4 days. I will update this post as more information is available and a resolve is achieved. Thanks all
  24. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 12-2-2016 Over the past decade, General Motors has made a concerted effort to remain capable of providing its customers with diesel-powered vehicle offerings. Ford, Ram, and of course Volkswagen also have offered diesel vehicles, and the European Sports-Lux automakers dabble with small numbers of specialty diesels. However, GM seems to be taking a broader approach that will bring diesel vehicles not just to one segment of its customer base, as most automakers do, but to all of its largest sales segments beyond just HD trucks. Any member of this group knows that the Colorado and Canyon are hugely popular, due in part to the availability of diesel engines. Chevy is continuing to make diesel a premium, or upgrade on its midsize trucks, even including it as an option for the new Colorado ZR2. GM also announced that it will expand the 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine to the Savana and Chevy Express vans that have been using larger diesel engines. This marks a shift from total hauling capacity and towing capability towards fuel economy as the primary benefit to these vehicle owners. Diesels in pickups and work vehicles are not unique to GM. What will be unique to Chevy, for a while at least, is the new Equinox family crossover which will offer an optional diesel engine. The 1.6-liter diesel may offer buyers a high-torque, high-efficiency option to augment the new gasoline engines the crossover will have. Mazda has announced it too will offer its CX-5 crossover with an all-new diesel engine soon. Imagine a comparison test of two new family crossovers both with diesel power. Few would have predicted that when the VW fiasco erupted 15 months ago. In total, no other automaker will have as broad a diesel offering as GM in 2017.
  25. 2017 new chrome Denali Duramax crew cab step bars. Fit diesel only as far as I know (DEF tank). The truck is ordered and these will be removed as soon as it comes in at the dealership. Late December ETA. Located in Central Florida.
