Transmission fitment question

Recommended Posts

So I have a 2017 Silverado 5.3, 6 speed 4wd and my transmission went out and I’m going to purchase a used one and I came across a good deal on a 2014 Silverado That there parting out. So my question is will that transmission be a plug n play situation or do they have different type of transmissions he said it’s also a 5.3 with 4wd thanks in advance

The transmission will bolt in but you have to tow it to a dealership to program the TCM in the transmission to your truck.


The 2014 and 2017 trucks will not have the same TCM calibrations, thus the need to do this.

      So I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 5.3 3.42 gears with towing package(not NHT).  I have installed Bilstein 5100s on all four corners. Tow mirrors being shipped as we speak. Air bags are up next.  Here is my dilemma. My wife has her heart set on a Forest River Vibe 32BH.  It is 38 feet long, dry weight of 7400#, cargo capacity of 2300# and a hitch weight of 930# fully loaded.  I don’t plan to ever haul with full water, and I highly doubt I ever put 2300# of gear in it. We plan on towing it in our local area with 1 trip a year from Virginia to New York.  I will also be the only one in the vehicle when towing as she and the kids will go in our van.  Just want to get some of your thoughts on this setup. Thank you.

      Truck drives fine but obviously it isn’t good. Haven’t noticed any oil puddles on the floor or any big leaking. What you guys think it can be? Here’s a pic.

      Hello GM fam. I'm new here and I'm searching for some advice for my project build. I have the remains of a salvaged '17 GMC. And I was wondering the possibility of making the dash and radio work in my project '95 GMC. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

      I have 2012 Sierra 5.3 with a 4l60e trans. As of lately there has been a shuttering raging from 30 to 40 MPH . Its like going over the safety bumps on the side of the road. Its not the tires or the U joints, i ruled those out. Im thinking either the Tc itself or the solenoid is bad. If i keep it at 30 it will shutter and when I press the brake to see if it stops , it wont, the shuttering will continue . When i turn the tow mode on, the shutter will disappear. Any input would help. Thankyou
