i own a 2018 e-assist silverado 5.3L. dont have an honest opinion yet of the hybrid feature but love the truck. i have a cat back exhaust with a flowmaster super 10, throttle body spacer and an air/oil seperator. what i want to add is a cold air intake but have been unable to to find one due to truck being an e-assist (mild hybrid). tried a K&N cold air intake but due to the radiator resovoir being in the way, the mandrel will not fit. On the GM PARTS online site, they have a performance intake (Performance Air Intake Upgrade, 5.3L Part Number: 84794977) that says it will fit my Gas/Electric truck. I went to order and later that day i recieved an email from a salesperson who stated that part may not fit and i should do research before buying. i cannot find anything online that says there is a cold air intake that will fit my truck. Has any E-Assist owners come across an air intake that fits or have installed the GM Part 84794977 sucessfully? Thanks
What is E Assist considered?
Huntere posted a topic in 2014-2019 Engine, Driveline, & ExhaustI have a 2017 silverado with a 5.3l v8 E Assist and have been looking at different accessories for the truck. To make sure that the parts will fit I would need to select either 5.3L GAS or 5.3L FLEX FUEL or 5.3L GAS/ELECTRIC Is the E Assist engine considered just a gas engine or a Gas/Electric engine? I KNOW for sure that the truck is not a Flex Fuel Thanks!
So I have recently purchased a Range AFM disabler for my 2017 Silverado 1500 E-assist because of the constant stopping and starting at stop lights, exhaust drone from V4, weird shifting from V4 to V8 and my transmission liking to jerk/shifting hard every so often. After installing the Range device, it has solved my transmission issues, disabled stopping and starting at stop lights, and has been keeping it in V8 mode 24/7! The only thing I have noticed is that when I am decelerating from a speed of around 50 MPH or more, the engine will have a fast repetitive backfiring popping sound until i either get back on the gas pedal or have reached a speed of 35 MPH. It seems to happen when i am decelerating slowly and not fast, starts to backfire when it starts to downshift at around 900-1100 RPMs I have a flowmaster Super40 cat-back dual 2.5 inch exhaust with the third "cat" still on. It used to not backfire when the AFM was active BUT when decelerating, it would switch back into V4 mode. is there a way to fix this? Is there too much freeflowing exhaust? Can this backfiring through the exhaust cause any damage if left unfixed? Thanks, -Hunter
Alright so I've been waiting patiently on this, but I figured I would ask everyone here. First week of May, was driving south on i35 and had a rock crack my front windshield from a semi. I have insurance so I went for the $100 deductible replacement going through their approved installers. I've been waiting since the first week of May on my order for my front windshield to come in. Turns out the E-assist models have a different windshield compared to ALL of the other GM trucks. I do not have the lane-assist camera, my truck from factory is a LT, E-Assist, Crewcab. Pro Glass told me that GM has said this front windshield is on back order, which is the reason why they have no idea when it will come in. I'm in contact with the dealership and they have confirmed the glass has been ordered. Any reason why GM wouldn't have any E-assist windshield in the great state of Texas or that could be shipped in? I understand waiting for a month or so for it to come in from a different location, but this time line is getting a little too long for my comfort. It honestly sounds like they're going to the factory and making a brand new one how long it's taking. Insight on ordering parts from GM factory is greatly appreciated. Edit: GM Dealership just called me and said that GM is waiting on their supplier. So who supplies GM's hybrid windshields?
My 2018 GMC Sierra SLT with e-Assist stutters intermittently when cold and backing up with foot applying lite pressure to the brake. It also does this at times when going forward. It has 14K miles but it has done this since about 3K miles. I finally took it in for diagnosis today. They were able to reproduce the problem. They scratched their heads for a while before concluding that the brake pads and rotors were glazed. This seems unlikely and I would appreciate learning if others have experienced this problem and how it was resolved. I am thinking it’s a problem with the e-assist trying to decide to stop the engine or not.
