Hey guys new to the site and ive looked around and still havent found a solution i recently bought a 2014 crew cab lt 5.3l chevy silverado with 63,000. I bought the Range afm to disable v4 mode and my transmission slips from 1-2 then has like half the power from 2-3 at cold or hot doesnt matter. Then drive fine after 3rd gear. i just recently flushed my transmission and changed the filter but still no luck... dealer said they cant find anything... plz help
Bought this 6 months ago for a 2018 Silverado 5.3L. Works great and is the most up to date version. Had no issues what so ever with the device, but ended up buying a tuner and am able to tune the AFM out of my truck, so this device is no longer needed.
Version = V8.6R1
Hi everyone- brand new to the forum. Thought I'd throw out a question about my 2008 Chevy Suburban LTZ sitting in the shop right now waiting on a replacement GM-cert refurb engine. Should be put in in the next several days.
Truck has 165K miles. Started chewing oil back in 2012 at around 80K. Was in shop 3 times in 2013 with the usual AFM issues up until the 110K mile mark when the 3rd operation was done (I think it was replacement of all pistons). All-told, about $7250 of warranty work done to truck related to AFM. Soooooo, truck recently had misfiring on cylinder 5, low oil pressure warning, drop of pressure, left on side of road. Towed to dealership. Engine not holding pressure, needs new engine.
I expect the engine to have 3 yrs/100K warranty.
My question is this: Should I disable the AFM with the "Range AFM Disabler" (http://www.rangetechnology.com/products/range-v8) device on this 'new' engine to (likely) eliminate any potential issues, or should I trust the newer version of this engine that was ordered will behave and perform as desired.
I am also a bit confused about posts discussing 'deleting' the AFM with "kits" or having to put different parts into the engine to turn AFM off, while getting normal, expected behavior from the engine.
Thank you all for any feedback. Love this forum!
Does a Range AFM disabler work on a 2017 model? Their website indicates it goes up to 2016. I can't see what should be different... but I think they are overpriced to begin with, so I don't want to shell out the dollars for it if it's a paperweight.
My truck is a 2017 1500 with a 5.3L & 6 speed. I only want it so that custom exhaust won't sound stupid. Had an i2 programmer for my 16 and it won't work on my 17... so I quit with the programmer, I'll stick with plug and play if it is truly that.
