Just wanted to reach out and see if anyone is interested in trying AMSOIL's ATL in their 8sp transmissions that are having the shudder issues. If you are, PM me your address and I can get you a discounted quote delivered to your door for 16qts. That's basically the amount needed to do a fluid exchange. Thank you.
Hey guys, new to this forum. Recently purchased one of the dream trucks of mine, 2014 Sierra Z71 4x4 5.3l. Which I was finally able to afford lol, bought from a local dealer with 88k miles.
Prior to purchasing I test drove it, checked the history and maintenance records from GMC. All seemed well, purchased it and few days later while driving home on the highway cruising about 60-70mph, I began noticing a really loud sudden vibration that would come and go every few minutes (feels like it’s coming from underneath the truck not sure), lasting about 5 seconds. Even around 20-30mph I notice some shaking. Seems to be shifting fine, drives pretty smooth other than these vibrations that are coming and going. I just don’t know what it could be. I didn’t notice it during the test drive, just my luck, hoping for the best. Any opinions are greatly appreciated, I attached a video as well of the sound.
A few months ago I installed a set of Texas Speed and Performance long tube headers and the catted y pipe they offer. Some then
ive noticed the front of the transmission pan leaks a little bit. The bolt heads have trans fluid on them all the time and every now and then it drips onto the exhaust and I can smell it. I believe this is due to the heat from the catalytic converter that is positioned directly below the trans pan. I haven’t noticed any higher trans temperature and the fluid level of the trans hasn’t gotten low so it not a bad leak, just an annoying smell mostly. I’m trying to decide what to do and I thought I’d get y’alls opinion. I was thinking about making a heat shield to go between the cat and the trans pan. or maybe just tightening the bolts on the trans pan, if I remember correctly the torque spec on those is pretty low and the added heat from the cat might be enough to make it leak. Thanks for any input.
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.

I’ve read so many threads and seen a lot of methods but would appreciate some input please.
2017, 5.3, 6 speed Z71
do I need to drop exhaust to drop pan or not? Crawled under and took pics it looks like there is clearance...
regarding aftermarket pan with drain plug on these, any adverse issues? Like the controversial rear diff covers?
thank you all!
