Looking for some help. I have a 2019 Crew Cab LT Trail Boss with 4,600 mi, 5.3 engine. Blew an oil cooler line a few weeks ago, drove 200ft with the blown line and shut the truck off. After telling the dealer and tow company not to start it the first thing I hear from the dealer is that the truck was stalling out as they drove it into the shop/moved it and that a nice feature on these new trucks is that the engines don't blow with low oil, they just stall out. Next day the dealer tells me that it's a blown engine. I've been telling the dealer for a week now that I want a new truck. What's a reasonable course of action for the dealer here? What should I expect as a solution or should I ask for as a solution? They're currently tearing apart the engine so GM can evaluate what exactly is wrong and do a cost analysis.
Anyone know how difficult it would be to upgrade the rear view mirror? My trail boss came with a "dumb" mirror. No auto dim, no compass, no onstar, no temp read out, nothing. I'd like to at least have auto dimming, compass, and temp read out. Rear view mirror camera would nice too. Is there any chance that the wiring is already there for it and I just need to simply replace the mirror and plug it in?
I've seen a lot of aftermarket options and some of them look pretty neat, but for the most part they attach to the existing mirror and I'd like to find something that is as close as possible to stock looking.
So I have a 2018 Silverado 5.3 Z71 LT and I've tried looking up threads for this topic before but for some reason I haven't had any luck. Ive had this truck for a year now and I had a level lift installed and my MPG stayed around 18-22 MPG and I could get 325-400 miles out of a full tank of fuel. I recently installed a 3.5 Rough Country suspension lift and I installed 20" wheels with 33" tires. I knew going into this modification that I would see a slight decrease in MPG but immediately after the install I dropped my MPG to 7.5-9 MPG and I cannot get it to increase AT ALL. I used to work at a GM dealership and spoke to a couple of old co-workers about this issue and for some reason we cannot pinpoint the issue. I know that increasing the ride height and the different wheel/tire package would create a difference but I didn't know that it would be this bad. I'm considering a performance chip and a CAI to try and increase my MPG, and its not a bad batch of gasoline and I've changed my driving habits and kept my foot off the throttle a little bit...if anyone has any info on this it would be greatly appreciated, thanks a lot!!
