Green Back-Up Camera?
kevymetal posted a topic in 2019-2023 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingI have a 2021 Silverado 1500 Custom. As soon as it starts getting cold outside (around or just below freezing) the screen on my back up camera frequently goes green. Brought it into the dealership last winter and they couldn't recreate the problem so they weren't able to do anything. Anyone else have this happening and know if there is a fix?
A flat Good Year Wrangler SR-A set the tire shopping in motion, and a 10% off sale on Nittos convinced me to try the 35x11.50r20 Ridge Grapplers. My goal was to get as much tire as possible without having to adjust the suspension so as to retain the stock ride, keep costs down, and achieve the aesthetic I like for modern 4x4 trucks. I was prepared to crank the front keys a few turns for up to 1" of leveling, but my preference was to avoid this if possible. Ridge grapplers have two sidewall designs on the tire; one side reminded me of Transformers, so I went with the more subdued sidewall. This doesn't impact fitment. After about 20 miles of driving and some parking lot testing turning the steering back and forth, the tires fit fine with only a few close spots throughout the range of motion. I've seen people report frame rub at full lock with these sizes; it hasn't happened to my truck yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it rubs mildly while turning sharply over rough terrain. Rear clearance is fine. A few tips: Check the actual dimensions of the tire you're choosing. The Nittos are 35s, but the actual diameter is about 34.7". Each manufacturer is a little different, and most list the true dimensions on their websites. The same applies to metric sizes - a BFG may be narrower than a Toyo. Looking at my truck, 35x12.50r20 would have fit too, but would probably rub on the wheel wells while going over bumps during a turn. The 11.50s provide just enough extra room that my truck has yet to rub, though my mileage count is low (20 miles since install) so I'll update this thread as I add miles. Expect to lose fuel economy. No data yet, but I anticipate a 1-2 MPG drop. Aftermarket wheels change everything. The popular offset or "poking" look makes it harder to stuff big tires without a lift. If you're changing wheels and tires, disregard this thread. What's next? Fresh oil, a detail, and maybe a front window tint. I'd like a Corsa, but they're $$$. Please excuse the dirty truck:
Flushing Coolant w/out Drain Plug
dudleykid posted a topic in 2000-2014 Silverado & Sierra HDI have a Silverado 2500 6L WT. I put some green antifreeze in the reservoir and found out that it is bad to mix the green antifreeze with dexcool and thus needed to flush my coolant. I then did a coolant flush with only dexcool to get the green antifreeze out of my truck. All I did was drain the dexcool from the radiator hose, refilled the reservoir with water, ran the water through the engine, and then drained the dexcool from the radiator hose again. All in all, I drained the dexcool from the radiator hose three times (three intervals of flushing water through the engine). I DID NOT remove the drain plug to remove the dexcool from the bottom of the engine block. Did I get all of the green antifreeze out without removing the drain plug or do I need to do another coolant flush?
