I just got a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500HD Duramax 6.6 L. 4WD. I have been driving a gasoline 8.1L Silverado of same year and size, but 2wd. I know nothing about diesel trucks and want to be sure to take care of it as best i can. Would appreciate any recommendations regarding starting procedures, driving a diesel vs. gasoline, what to be prepared for come winter, ANY suggestions that you may have to help me take the best care of and get the most out of this replacement truck would be greatly appreciated!
Part # from GM site 84520923. Could not find answers to the questions about this Performance part from GM. So I am paying back to this forum with an unboxing of the filter to answer some of the questions.
Is it a disposable filter? How often do you change it? Do you need to tune the truck to take advantage of this filter? Still to be answered in use:
Are there any improvement (subjectively by feel and by mileage)? Will it improve anything including idle smoothness? Slightest change to the sound of the intake?
10X more expensive than stock filter is being put to test. I get that nobody in the right frame of mind would spend 10x on the drop-in filter but I did use my GM points. Let's see...
Paper manual that came with GM Performance Air Filter
Hey Everyone, I’ve been looking at this forum for a long time but I’m a new member. I have a 2015 GMC All-Terrain that I’m wanting to level. I’ve been trying to decide between the ready lift 2.25” with the 2” rear block or Rough Country 2.5” with the 2” rear block. I want to run 275/65r20 tires on the stock wheels. I was also considering buying a set of Hellwig helper springs, I pull a trailer a few times a month and don’t want much to any squat. So I guess my questions are:
1. Has anyone done either of those kits with that size of tire? (Please share a picture)
2. Would it be better to do an Add-A-Leaf
in place of the 2” block and Hellwigs?
I have looked through all the leveling kit post and haven’t really found what I was looking for yet.
2007 Silverado 5.3 V8 with AFM with 180,000 miles
Truck had lifter ticking sound and white smoke upon every start up which would go away after a few minutes, no check engine light
Replacement list :
- valve gaskets
- upgraded drivers side valve cover
- valve stem seals
- intake manifold gasket
- exhaust manifold gasket
- 8 new afm lifters
- 8 new non-afm lifters
- head gasket bolts
- engine coolant temperature sensor
- spark plugs
- spark plug wires
- fuel injectors
- water pump
- cam sensor
- crank sensor
After completion of engine reassembly no longer had white smoke upon start up and no ticking sound but flashing check engine light code p0300.
Code p0300 was for cylinder #1, #4, & #7
Moved coil packs between cylinder #1 and #2 to see if coil packs was bad but no change. Set engine at TDC before installing the rocker arms.
All bolts have been properly torque and no parts have been left unplugged or uninstall.
Any possible advice would be helpful
