I recently bought this clean title, high mileage 2000 Silverado LS Z71 from my coworker. It was right before Christmas and I really wanted to help the guy out knowing full well I could do something with it. Heck, I needed a truck after all. I get home and attempt to drain the oil but nothing comes out. After some poking around with a screwdriver, I get it to drain. Chunks are flowing along with the oil and it turns out there was so much sludge build up in the bottom of the pan, it sucked some up, suffered a momentary loss of oil pressure and spun the bearing. I know the transmission had a hard shift from first to second. Could it be low fluid? Maybe, but why do the swap just to find out the transmission is bad?
My coworker friend was a smoker and it appears he preferred his coffee without a lid so the interior is....interesting. Also truck only has oxidation on the hood and fenders so the only reasonable choice was to find a salvaged donor vehicle to source parts from!!
I have a buddy with a dealers license and I'm debating picking up this rear ended 2006 Escalade for a FULL front end/interior/dash/drivetrain swap. Can it be done? Plug and play? Anything someone doing something like this should know?
I've done some pretty crazy engine swaps and garage rebuilds, 2 stroke porting early on, etc.
I have the ability but hopefully you folks can chime in and confirm whether or not it is possible or if there is a better option. I was also looking at a 2004 Duramax/6speed which was t-boned pretty good as a potential candidate but there's something about that plush Escalade interior....

Just two days after announcing that it is doubling its efforts on electric vehicles, GM's Cadillac division has released a new trim for one of its least energy-efficient vehicles, the Escalade. The general theme of the new Escalade is all-black everything and huge wheels.
The 2019 Sport Edition will be available in either 2WD or 4WD and will have the 6.2-liter V8 engine. The Midnight Silver finish on the standard 22-inch wheels with low-profile rubber offset the all-black exterior nicely. The suspension will feature Magnetic Ride Control. Inside, there are bucket seats in the second row. “Two decades after its introduction, the Escalade remains the segment’s benchmark and sales leader,” said Steve Carlisle, Cadillac president. “The Sport Edition extends that momentum in response to customer and dealer demand for a dark and aggressive look.”
The full list of features include:
-Magnetic Ride Control with driver-selectable modes.
-Available 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot (includes 3GB/three-month data trial).
-Automatic Parking Assist.
-Fold-flat second- and third-row seats with power-folding third row.
-Heated and cooled front seats with heated second-row bucket seats.
-Heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with wood accents.
-12.3-inch-diagonal instrument cluster display with high-resolution digital driver information center.
-Bose Centerpoint audio system featuring 16 speakers.
-Hands-free liftgate with Cadillac logo illumination.
The Sport Edition is a $2,700 option package on the Escalade, which starts at $85K. Look for availability in Q1 of 2019.

US News speculates that Cadillac is feeling pressure from the newly redesigned Lincoln Navigator.
I am a new member and I am glad to have joined this forum. I have a 2018 Tahoe Premier and I tried to get answers to my questions but I couldn't find any..
1) The vehicle has a feature to auto tilt mirrors on reverse , and it is good feature, but how can I disable the feature (just for a few second i.e. switching back and forth instantaneously ) without going through the in-dash screen? The mirrors are too small and tilting them make it hard to see obstacles behind, although they are good to see side walk edges. I knew that the mirrors have a time frame and it will auto raise to original position even while gear is still on reverse.
2) Is there a way to switch off auto dimming for the mirrors (just for a few second i.e. switching back and forth as well)?
Thanks to all
I've got a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 that has wind noise on driver's side. I just came out of the shop for the issue. Said the sealed holes in door with gap sealer, but I still have the noise. After examining, I noticed the window seal is not tucked under the mirror very tight, like the passenger side is. I believe the air is coming between the door and seal, as the way it is now, wind would catch the corner of seal.
Anyone know if the window seal is supposed to be between the mirror plastic and mirror rubber flap, or under both? I don't want to reverse engineer the passenger side and take a chance at screwing it up. My passenger side is under both. Curious if any others had to do this.
