I bought a 2015 Silverado 1500 lt double cab 5.3L V8 4x4 with 12,000 miles on it a couple months ago. It now has just under 20k miles and when I went to check the oil there where metal shavings on the end of the dipstick. Concerningly big metal shavings. I brought it in to my local GM dealer and they told me that it's from the dipstick scraping on the dipstick tube. They didnt run any tests on it they just drained it and looked in the oil itself and didnt find any shavings (so they said). Which sounded a little shady to me so I started looking to see if anyone else had this problem and I found a few cases similar but not enough for me to come to a solid conclusion. The pickup runs great and I dont hear or feel any problems but any insight would be greatly appreciated. I thought about sending a sample to be tested myself but I dont know of any good company's near me that do it. Any recommendations on that would great too. Thanks

Hey there! After searching for the topic problems and implementing some of the advice, I've come to a place where I can't seem to find help around my unique set of issues.
I've recently acquired a decently maintained '04 Silverado. I immediately ran into the blower problems so many have before me.
The specific problem that manifested was two-fold:
No A/C or intermittent A/C (it was intermittent when I bought it) After a day of driving, A/C never worked again and speed 5 stopped working.
After research here, I found that the controller and harness often go bad. I replaced those along with the 40A Fuse that blew. My blower then worked on speed 5, but it was never cold.
I then attempted to fix this with a can (specifically AC PRO Refrigerant with the gauge on top). I used the can according to the instructions and it indicated that I need to see a technician.
After the swap and can, a new problem occurred: the blower killed my battery because the fans never turn off, even with the key out.
After trickle charging my battery and removing the 40A fuse, I'm back to no cold air and no blower on 5.
Some other research led me to the blend door potentially being stuck or the contacts inside needing cleaning, but I can successfully make the heater blow hot by changing the dials so I don't think that's it (but am up for checking it if you guys think that makes sense).
aI'd love some pointers for what direction to go in next.
Everything I've found for the 2 problems of no blower on 5 and blower never shutting off leads me to a blower resistor swap. Since I've already done that, where would you guys go next with it?
I'm in Texas and am not looking forward to trucking around without A/C ha!
Thanks ahead of time for any help, I'm pretty stuck right now and am fairly new to working on Silverados.
EDIT: I have the manual CJ3 system (forgot to include that information previously).
EDIT 2: The compressor clutch also engages and cycles normally (that was another research path I went down)
