  1. Hello all. I own an 18 Silverado 1500 LT , double cab, 6’6” box, 6 spd transmission, I have opted to put 26” status alloy empire wheels with tire size of 305/26/30. Stock transmission gave out. Stock Transmission went out. They said torque converter and pump went out then everything else went with it. Was able to replace the entire unit with a remanufactured from GM. 1 month later, back to the shop (dealer). They covered the repairs because it was under warranty but if it goes out again they won’t because they believe it is the rims causing the trouble. However they will cover if it goes out with stock wheels. Which I will be putting back on. Has anyone else experienced issues with this type of truck and 26” wheels? I did research the “Unsprung weight” makes some sense, however only the transmission gave out, not my drive shaft, drive shaft knuckles, diff, just the goofy transmission which I know the 8 speed has had their share of ongoing things. How is it that a truck that is capable of towing 9k lbs has issues with no load on 26” rims. Pulling a payload in the bed of the truck and pulling a trailer should still have the same effect. If I can’t tow anything with the truck, then what is the point of a truck. I have went back to stock rims to see what would happen. Anyone with info ,thought , something sketched on a cocktail napkin would be greatly appreciated. I do thank you all for your time on this. I have attached the service ticket to this post.
  2. Has anyone ever tried changing the aluminum line to rubber hose crimps for the transmission and oil cooler lines out for AN fittings on and 07-13 Sierra 5.3L? I have a 2013 Sierra and the cold here in Canada isn’t kind to these crimps as I believe the rubber and aluminum have different shrink rates because of difference in material causing them to leak. Replacing them will not solve the problem as the will just do the same thing every year. So what I want to know is if anyone has successfully done this and what fittings did you use?
  3. Hope nobody minds, but I'm going to start up a Quick Reference Guide for common parts/fluids/bulbs for the T1 HD trucks. I'll try to keep it updated if anything changes. If a mod wants to sticky it, I'm down for that too.

  4. Hey all, 2017 Silverado, 5.3/6spd. My transmission issue only happens when I first drive the truck for the first time in the morning. The truck has to have been sitting overnight for this to occur. After starting the truck and driving, the trans will "fish bite" or stutter when shifting from third to fourth. It will do this once, (maybe twice) and be good and problem free for the rest of the day. Has anyone else experienced this? It only happens when the truck is first driven after sitting overnight. It's not really a major issue, as it doesn't happen again after the first time, but it's pretty annoying. This issue only occurs at light/part throttle, and my speed is around 25-30 mph. I do not notice any variances on the tach while this happens. Also, if I drive with more pedal/throttle, I will not experience this stutter. I spoke with the dealer about this when I went in for my second free oil change, and they could not replicate the issue. During my first trip to the dealer, they downloaded a program update for the transmission. It helped overall, but the isolated problem is still present in the morning. I have read somewhere on this forum, that this was a "normal" occurance, and attempts to remedy should not be attempted. I believe that post mentioned that transmission fluid temperature played some part in this. Any ideas or input? Thanks in advance! Steve
  5. I've searched pretty much endlessly for some insight into this, and haven't found any good input outside of a lot of arguing. Thought I'd see what you fine folks may recommend here. Have a 2015 with the 6 speed transmission. Just hit 100k. I am the second owner (got at 23k) and to my knowledge has never had a transmission service, diffs, really anything outside of normal oil changes and filter changes. My question is this - what is the current recommend procedure for servicing here (both of transmission and anything else that might be recommended)? Do I do the exchange + filter, or do I do the full flush the dealership is recommending me? From what I've read, the diff fluid is an easy switch so I can do that. I don't rag this truck, don't tow, sometimes have stuff in the bed. Nearly 100% highway miles. Roughly 2300 hours on engine. Transmission stays at 190-192F. Don't have any mechanical issues here, and really nothing outside of a condenser and evap temp censor replacement last year. What else is recommended here? I'm a big dumb idiot and just haven't taken into account the additional 97000 service plan, as I've always heard never to mess with transmission fluid. I want to make sure I get as much as I can out of this truck. I appreciate any feedback/help/advice you may have. Also don't mind a little roasting as I'm sure it's warranted.
  6. I recently bought a great used 2007 Silverado 5.3 2wd with only 78k miles. I seen the carfax that the trans fluid was changed at 15k. So I decided to flush the system. But now I’m nervous that it might’ve been a bad decision and I might have done more damage in the long run. The flush didn’t include a new filter either so I might have it changed. Anyone think it’s going to deteriorate sooner or later?
  7. Just recently bought a 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4x4. I am the third owner. Shortly after buying the truck the transmission grenade’d itself. I’m at 97k miles so still under the 100k mike power train warranty, however I was 21 days outside of the 5 year part of the warranty. I reached out to GM after returning from deployment to try and get some help and hope that they would honor all or maybe partial warranty. Needless to say no help from GM! Shopped around for shops to rebuild and ended just buying a remand one for 2.7k. So here are my questions: 1. Flush the current cooler or buy an upgraded one? 2. If I should buy an upgraded one then how big? Also should I bypass the current one in the radiator to have a separate cooling system? 3. I’ve heard of people deleting the transmission oil thermometer to achieve a cooler temp. So say do this because heat is the enemy, others say the trans is built to operate at a certain temp. 3.What temperature is the best operating temperature? 4. Should I have the new transmission re flashed or swap the one from my grenade’d one into the remand one? 5. What’s the best way to flush the current cooler if I don’t change it? I’m afraid if I just try to flush it then it won’t get it clean enough and I’ll mess up the new transmission! That’s all I can think of right now! Thank you in advance for your time and expertise!
  8. I had purchased AMSOIL Signature Series ATF for my 18 Silverado - 6 speed. After having it sit for a while and never getting to a transmission flush on my own time, I called a local, honest, reputable transmission shop near me that has always treated my dad very well. They’re a no-bull, honest shop, and the owner is down to earth and knowledgeable regarding transmissions, as he should be. I informed him I had AMSOIL and wanted it switched with that, and he advised that for the 6L80E, it wasn’t a great idea. He has nothing against a better fluid, but he advised that AMSOIL doesn’t treat the electronics nicely, and it’s a common issue. I’m an AMSOIL guy, and do want him to use the AMSOIL fluid, but has anyone else heard of this or advise to simply use DEXRON VI and NOT AMSOIL?
  9. Question to all new truck buyers who bought a 2018 Chevy Colorado, you having any transmission issues, like slipping between 2nd and 3rd gear on the automatic floor shiftier or problems with the + and - buttons ?
  10. Sorry if this seems long winded but I want to provide as much info as possible. Just picked up a 2019 Silverado 1500 custom. Has the 4.3 V6 with the 6 speed transmission (6L80 I believe) The truck had 99 miles on it. Currently around 2500. No issues out of the gate, after about a week of driving I noticed a very delayed shift I think it was from 1-2 or 2-3. The engine revved 1-2k high RPM than normal before shifting. a few days later while on the highway (cruise set at 75mph) out of no where the RPM’s spiked as if it had downshifted. There was no additional load on the engine to cause this, like going up or down a hill. This happened a few times. I called the dealership immediately and brought the truck to them a few hours later. Got a loaner for a few days while they looked over it. They called me to come pick it up, said the tech noticed a little bit of rough shifting and said they “re-set” the shifting points. Since it was an intermittent problem for me I don’t think it arose for them. So I took the truck home, no problems. My wife drove it to work that same night and the same problem happened again. This time the engine light came on. I scanned the codes this morning and the ECM showed P0700 (transmission control system the TCM showed P2714 pressure control solenoid D performance/stuck off. So back to the dealer it goes, waiting for them to bring me a loaner this time. I was was told by a dealer technician that GM has been having them put a different type of transmission fluid in some of these trucks due to issues with the torque converter. But I guess if a solenoid is stuck it could be due to a fluid issue as well? Just speculating. I’m curious if anyone else has had similar issues. I haven’t had much luck finding anyone else online with the same problem. Which is guess is more of the reason I’m posting this, in case there’s someone else lost like myself. I will keep this updated when I get further down the road with the dealership. I get that there are fluke problems that can arise, but this is a bit irritating considering it’s a brand new vehicle. I will say that the dealership I’m working with has been extremely supportive and not trying down play anything I’m complaining about.
  11. I have a 2019 Silverado LD with 21k miles on it. I noticed that if I'm in manual mode, I get a hard downshift from 3-2. No other gears. It does it off and on. What could it be?
  12. So I have a 2014 Silverado with the 5.3 and if I don't let it idle while fueling I can't start it for atleast 20-30 minutes (whether I put half a tank or full tank) I had the fuel pump changed and that temporarily fixed it for about 3 months. So then I changed the injectors and fuel sensor there was no change and no check engine light. Probably unrelated but its saying gas cap open when its closed and has started messing up on shift points with a weird whine almost like its stuck in tow-haul with an engine brake when I start slowing down. I don't know how else to explain it other than that. Transmission was replaced by dealer at 78K it's sitting at 115K now and if I could I'd drive it off a cliff at this point but SW Texas has no cliffs. I've heard possibly torque converter, whole transmission, or simple computer problem and was wondering what y'all might think. Why I ever switched out of the Duramax and Allison I don't know but lesson learned.
  13. Hi all, I'm new here and hoping y'all will be able to help give me some direction. I have a '15 Yukon XL Denali with the 6 speed MYC transmission and almost 140k miles, my transmission has begun shuddering when I'm driving between 25-35 miles an hour, does not seem to do this at really any other speeds. I spoke with a dealer who said their suggestion is just to go ahead and replace the transmission, this feels a little extreme at this point since Im not having hard shifts etc. I've owned the vehicle for the last year and put about 27k miles on it in a year. I have no records of any previous transmission maintenance and the fluid looked good when we purchased it. I know that dropping the pan is a pain in the neck, but I'm thinking that I need to change the filter since I have no idea how old it is. Husband is out of town and I'm wanting to get this dealt with ASAP. I'm pretty capable of doing a flush or dropping the pan if I have a good write up to follow, so any advice would be much appreciated. Also, what fluid have y'all had good luck with? Thanks, Jenn
  14. 4L60-E transmission whining only when vehicle is in motion. Mostly starts past 30mph. Transmission is off the Suburban now. Whining still present when input shaft is turned.
  15. My recently purchased '05 Silverado 1500 has no problem shifting except between 2nd and 3rd. On upshifts, it shifts out of second, then there is a small flare, then it tries to engage 3rd, then it flares again, then it engages 3rd. It takes about a second and it's very consistent. On downshifts, it acts pretty similarly but it essentially acts like it's in neutral for .5 seconds. If I'm in 3rd or 4th and I depress the accelerator, revs out to 4k or 5k and then roughly engages 2nd. Otherwise it's perfect. No slipping, normal shifts, normal idle behavior, reverse works well, no noises or smells. The transmission fluid level and color is fine. I did some googling and narrowed it down to the computer, valve body, or solenoid which is basically not narrowed at all. Has anyone else had and fixed this problem?
  16. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLT 4WD 5.3L. 3 days ago while driving home I noticed that there was a slight stutter/shudder when the truck was attempting to shift up to the next gear. It seems that it only happens when easing into the gear at a slower speed,normally around 50MPH or so,and occasionally continues to happen while maintaining those speeds. 89,000 miles on it. I bought all the stuff do change the transmission fluid and filter but was hoping somebody could give me some alternative ideas to check before diving down that rabbit hole. Really needs this fixed ASAP, I’m a firefighter and this is my vehicle I commute to work in. Thanks in advance for any help.
  17. I waited several extra months for the AT4's release to purchase my truck. Less than 1 day of light driving and 70 miles into my new truck the transmission started to slip in and out of gear. I pulled into a parking lot and when I shifted into revers the truck slowly rolled forward. Onstar had a flat bed tow truck there within an hour to bring the day old truck back to the dealer. The dealer can not start work on the truck until GM approves the new transmission. I am told that there is a lot of extra paperwork and approval because there are so few miles and it is a new truck. I would think that GM would want to maintain their customer loyalty and support their new designs before aggravating buyers of new trucks. I have been a lifelong GM buyer, but thinking that i should have gone with a Ford or Ram. Has anyone else had to wait for repairs on a brand new vehicle?
  18. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4-25-2019 Back in December, GM-Trucks.com member Jammin87SS posted a note here about a class-action suit related to GM 8-speed automatic transmissions. This transmission was used widely by GM, including in the Sierra, Silverado, Colorado, and Canyon pickup trucks. Owners have been complaining of shuddering and hesitation. Owner of a Silverado, Ed T., wrote a typical description for CarComplaints. He says, "Ever since I bought this truck new there has always been a shifting problem. This problem occurs whenever I slow down to a fairly low speed and then accelerate. When I accelerate there is a hesitation for a second or 2. This is very annoying and could potentially be dangerous. I have contacted my dealer and he just says "that's the way they shift, no fix"??? Dealer also stated that the transmissions have a learning chip and shifts the way a person normally drives - that's total BS. I have had my truck for over 2 years and it still shifts poorly. Besides the above I love my truck very much, GM just has to fix this problem..." GM knows there is a problem. It has issued both notices to its dealer's technicians and also TSBs. However, it has yet to find a solution that works. There is a class action suit that you can learn more about here. Our questions for our members are; 1) Have you experienced any issues with your 8-speed, and 2) was the dealer able to fix it? Let us know in the comments below.
  19. I Purchased my 2015 silverado z71 crew cab a couple months ago, so far i love the truck accept for one issue that shows itself every once in a while. USUALLY while turning and acceleration lightly at the same time ( lugging the motor pretty much) ill get a very noticable shudder right before the truck FINALLY decides to downshift. Has anyone had a similar issue. Im going to drives my buddies sierra tomorrow and see if i get the same shudder. I have 3600 miles on this truck so i dont think its anything to do with the "adaptive" transmission learning cycle. Ive heard a custom tune can resolve issues but i really hate to do that on this new of a truck, nor do i have anywhere within 400 miles to get it done. New to the forum guys, hope to get some responses, this is my first GM product. Switched from a 2008 tundra with 245000 trouble free miles. Hope i dont regret this purchase
  20. Hello, I have a 2018 Silverado, around 11000 miles on it. Driving the other day, lost power around 35 mph, pulled into a parking lot, re started the truck and checked to make sure I was in 2wd etc. Began driving again, toward home due to something being wrong and same issue occurred including check engine light. Had vehicle towed Friday night when it happened, at dealer now which isn't open until tomorrow. Has anyone experienced anything similar?
  21. Hello everyone, Well I took my 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 up to the dealership yesterday for transmission issues. When accelerating around 30mph the transmission makes a high whining noise around 2000 rpm almost like its slipping and the truck shakes back and forth. Then when on the interstate on cruise control around 65-70 you will hear a grinding noise every few minutes. Also when you slow down from the 60-70 mph range to around 30 mph and accelerate the grinding noise becomes more apparent. When I dropped the truck off yesterday I showed the service guy video of the grinding as well as what I believe to be slipping and he said "Yeah that sounds like it is slipping". Received a phone call this morning from the same service technician saying they were not able to replicate the issue. That the transmission guy said that is normal when it switched between V4 and V8 mode. It's amazing I have had this truck and driven it for 76000 plus miles and have never heard that whining or grind noise. I asked how long they test drove it and he said 10 minutes. I told him they need to drive it around longer and actually go on the interstate to hear and see what it is doing. This is not the first time I've taken my truck up there for transmission problems and I am not picking this truck up again until they find the issue. The first time was for rough shifting to which they said was normal. This is my first Chevy I ever have bought or owned. Bought it brand new from the dealer. I must say that with how I keep getting treated with the "can not replicate" issue as a scapegoat for not truly trying to satisfy the customer is getting old. Especially being I have videos in which you can see the rpms and hear the whine up and hear a grind noise. This will most likely be the last Chevy product I purchase. If anyone has any ideas and doesn't mind listening to the videos I have I would appreciate it. I will have to post a link to youtube since the video will be to big to post here. Thanks
  22. Patient - 2019 1500 LD, 5.3, 6 sp, 7200 miles old, Covid-19 negative. Symptoms - 2-3 second shutter / shake / rumble, during light acceleration, 30-40 MPH and low RPM. Happens while both in V4 mode and while in v8 (manual w/ transmission set to L5). I thinks its the torque converter, but surfing the forum I see this issue mainly referenced to 2015+/- K2s and I'm not sure if they changed the trans in the final years. I'd appreciate either a TSB # or a link to another posting were I could find the TSB. I'd like to be able to take to my dealer and say "HERE....READ....FIX" (politely). Many thanks!
  23. Anyone have a check engine light show up then go away and come back? Code uo129 lost communication with brake control module, UO101 lost communication with transmission Control Module. Went to bed with no check engine light, woke up in the morning for work and noticed the truck would not remote start. When I go in to head to work noticed check engine light. After work ran codes. Shortly after getting codes and using google to research check engine light was gone. Went for a drive never came back on. Woke up this morning it was on again. Can anybody relate?

  25. Hey guys, After many many hours of forum reading and trying to find a answer for a problem like mine I've finally given up and decided to just ask. I've got a 2001 Silverado 1500 LS 2wd with the 5.3L. We were driving down a back road the other day and to simply say that it was muddy would be a huge understatement. Had I not know better I wouldn't have believed it was an actual road and not a trail. The mud was so deep that it reached clay in spots and we basically snowplowed mud with the front bumper. After making it back to the highway we went to go accelerate only to be bounced around wildly and were unable to go much faster than 80km/h due to a random and sudden lack of 3rd gear and overdrive. Limped the truck home and did a transmission fluid and filter change the next day. Fluid was filthier than heck, dark dark brown in color sort of like Cola. After that now the truck sometimes finds 3rd but 4th is nowhere to be found and once you get over about 70km/h it shakes so hard it feels like the worst washboard despite doing our best to get all the mud out of the wheels. Reverse still works fine. Looked under the truck and there does appear to be a bent crossmember but the frame still looks fine and straight. Some backstory; Never had any transmission problems before this or signs of slipping. The tires on the truck are oversized, from a stock 245/75r16 to running 275/70r17. At present there are no rear brakes, had a bolt on the caliper come off one day and long story short ended up disconnecting them and pinching off the lines for the back brakes. We also have kids who like to play driving and occasionally jerk on the shifter, one day our toddler somehow manged to get the truck out of drive without hitting the brake and it started rolling, it didn't go very far before I stopped it but nevertheless was certainly surprising. So my question is; what could be causing this to happen? Is the transmission completely gone and if so why no warning signs? Could it be the 3/4 clutch pack, the shift cable, transmission mounts or something else? Any input would be appreciated!
