6.0 pulling timing at 3000 RPM
Abarth500. posted a topic in 6.6L (LML/L5P) & 6.0L (L96/LC8) TechHey yall! New member here, sorry for creating a thread so early on, but my warranty expiration is creeping up on me fast and I need to get this sorted- so here's my issue. I have a 2015 2500HD with the 6.0 and about 95,000mi, and for the past 6 months, I've been having this issue where It'd start pulling timing ( up to 15 degrees of KR) under moderate to heavy throttle, as soon as it hits 3000RPM. There is no audible knock, but 15 degrees of KR sounds very excessive. Higher octane fuel makes the issue better, and usually after long interstate drives (no heatsoak), it runs great, but generally, it's very bad. Towing a 32FT trailer full of band equipment up a mild hill, it struggles to get out of first gear, and slams into the next gear because the timing is so far retarded before the shift, that it screws with the shift timing. I have used various fuel system cleaners ( now trying Amsoil Pi, as I know its well proven ) but so far, none have made any difference. I want to check the fuel pressure, but I don't see a test port, and I can't get any OBD app to display fuel pressure. Here's what confuses me: Sometimes, under the same conditions, It'll run just fine and pull hard straight through 3000 RPM. The only thing I can find different between the times that it runs like a POS and times that it runs like its brand new, is that when it's running like crap, it shudders at idle- enough to be felt throughout the entire truck. It pulls the most timing at around 3000, and tapers down as the revs increase. I got it used, with about 76,000mi, so I'm not clear about its past. Back when it was running horribly I was considering that It might have been tuned by the previous owner, but lately, its been randomly running just fine. Its been fine for the past week or so, but I'm still very curious about what could be going on. I have TorquePRO recordings of the issue happening, which I may upload later if that would be of any help. I've been hoping for a CEL but of course- no pending or stored codes! Thank you all! Sorry for the length of the post!
Hi all! Bought my 2020 Silverado RST almost a year ago (12000km) and this summer started noticing a whirring noise as I accelerate with the AC on, it doesn't happen when the AC is off. Dealership says its normal and its because its under load (been a hot and humid summer), another post here had a couple other people experiencing it but its over a year old so wanted to see if anyone else has/is experiencing it. Did any parts get replaced? Did it help? The dealership said to keep an eye on it and they would replace the compressor if it got worse or if it continued when temps drop but if its normal function then that likely wouldn't help. Won't lie...i'm not impressed with how loud it is considering its a 60k truck.
Oil pressure increase with RPM
RayP posted a topic in 2019-2023 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingHello, Wondering if it normal for my oil pressure to shoot up with the RPM? I have a 4.3L v6 in my Express. Proper oil was used? What could cause that? Will this become a problem for leaks later? That's what I'm afraid of. Thanks,
Rattling noise at low RPMS 2006 1500
R6Ivy posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Hi, I'm pretty new to this website. Came across it when I was looking for an answer to my problem . . . I don't know too much about trucks.. cars....4 wheel vehicles. I just bought this 06 crew cab 1500 silverado 4.3L had about 80k miles on it. I actually noticed the sound when I was test driving it from the dealer. Now it has about 101k miles and noise is still the same. it makes a rattling noise, almost like a metal noise at LOW rpms only. Doesn't matter if its 35 or 75mph. Have to be cruising like slight amount of acceleration. Sounds like its coming from the engine.. I checked a bunch of forums all saying different things. my truck is stock, as far as i know.. one of the forums mentioned it could bea bad alternator, but I have no clue. any help? Sorry I'm a complete noob. Ivy
Random oil pressure fluctuation
Jon Goyette posted a topic in 1999-2013 Silverado & Sierra 1500Here's an issue that has me stumped. 2000 Silverado, 4.3, 200K mi. Truck runs great, no oil consumption. I have a very random oil pressure fluctuation, normally I have 40 psi (+ or - 5psi) pretty steady, not affected by rpm or temp. about 20,000 mi. ago I started getting a lifter tick on start up accompanied by crazy fluctuation in oil pressure relative to rpm ( 15psi at idle and 60+ at 3500) It will do this for maybe a week and then stop....no tick and steady oil pressure again. Truck has always had regular oil changes with quality oil (dino) and a Wix filter, I've tried Lucas oil additive, Marvel, different viscosities between 10-30 and 15-40 nothing makes it worse or better. Seems to go away by itself and then return completely at random. Sometimes it will go 5k with no issues, other times maybe 2k. Not affected by oil changes or mileage...just comes and goes. Always lifter tick and oil fluctuation....tick goes away and so does crazy oil pressure. WTF is going on?
RPM Gauge not working
LowandUseless posted a question in Ask the GM TechnicianI have a 99 Silverado 1500, recently my RPM gauge suddenly stopped working. The Speedo, gas, volts, and etc all work perfectly still, also it is the stock gauges not aftermarket. When I unplug the gauge then replug it back in the RPMs will go up to six thousand and drop back down to zero, but then it will not work once the truck is running. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated.
