    2nd gear slip after service

    Take a look at the lower fan to fan shroud clearance. That got really tight in the Sierra when the kounts were about done. Then the power steering lines got crushed. :hopeless:

    Eco friendly oil container

    A lot of U S recycling is like that. Cheaper to ship it than get around regulaton. And as for what I'm doinb... highly experimental and I just can't say if you are in the right field. :thumbsup:

    Is anyone else having this trans problem?

    Yea its TC chatter. Aside from mine doing it once at 7k (which they immediately changed the fluod free of charge) its been fine right up to the present 32k miles on it... and that included some towing that would make the TB squeamish. From my understanding now, since it is a sealed unit the...

    Eco friendly oil container

    Maybe. The cleaning bath they enter when they're dropped off takes care of that but depending on the plant design that may not be stage 1. In which case then maybe. The one contract I have just incinerated it and then uses it for things I can't legally talk about but is good as far as...

    Eco friendly oil container

    That's dumb. Its equal to a milk container. It is quite literally one of the most recycable plastic types there is. Very strange.

    Eco friendly oil container

    Oil containers are very much recyclable. Just no one does it. Making plastic is something to the tune of 45-75% more environmentally sound than cardboard too. (Observing energy required to produce, plastic overall while it doesn't go away is actually still the best thing for the environment...

    Aside from the orange that actually made it look like dads old old craftsman. Very nice. The black is good because they you don't notice (at least for me) the greasy finger prints that eventually get over it.

    Proprietary nature of German products

    Proprietary nature of German products

    I could never get past the electrical problems... nightmare they all are. "My battery goes dead after sitting 2 weeks" BMWs response was a battery tender. :hopeless: mind you the car was about a month off the lot at that point.

    Yup. An old low profile 3/8 where the hex end was larger than the shaft itself. It was broken anyway. I did also try it with a 1/4 drive but as you can imagine... didn't go well. I was tired, a little hungover, and worried about all the metal I found in the oil pan.

    Tool Talk

    Yeah... for mine I ended up using a socket extension and modded it to work. For reinstalling I just used a dead blow. I've used every harmonic balancer installer I could find and have pulled the threads out of plenty of cranks to know the deadblow and a block of wood works best. :hopeless: not...

    How long do you plan on keeping your Trailblazer / Envoy?

    Yea the Colorado platform is that good but a TB on it would be cake... having the 16 Silverado and the 19 colorado the fit and finish on the colorado blows it out of the water. The Silverado has nicer materials but it isn't put together that well. My buddy actually went from a 15 Sierra Denali...

    Sludge vs Oil Pressure (non-gauge related low pressure)

    A guy on corvette forum had a relatively sludged up engine when he bought the car. He did a long term experiment with just oilchanges with mobil 1 and ill be damned that after a year it cleaned most of it back out. There is still varnish but it looks normal now. There is enough detergent...

    Best exhaust system, muffler resonator tailpipe

    I used the walker on the envoy. I noticed no difference between it and stock before the stock one blew out. I think mpg went up a tad honestly. As long as you aren't spinning the thing to redline, the neck down to 2.5 is fine. Its far enough back in the exhaust stream anyway. The walker still...

    maybe I have all your 10mms. I have like 20 and have no clue where they all came from. 9/16, 5/8 and 5/16 though... those keep disappearing and I don't know why. The other thing I've found out is my socket drawer is so heavy it actually broke the track on the drawer... guess 100lbs is too much.

    NEED HELP Bought a new 2020 Colorado Quad Cab last weekend.

    Mine had fogs so I can't comment per say... I can say that the Tahoe did not. So I would doubt these would as well. GM is too cheap. And then trying to get the BCM programed to make the switch work... forget about it. The wiring isn't even there so you'd have to do repinning at the BCM to the...

    Wheel Cleaner Recommendations

    Spray nine on the tire and regular zip wax and a towel on the wheels unless it's really bad then spray nine. The one thing I'll say, if you have any clear coated wheels do it in the shade. I hurt the TB wheels pretty bad by doing that. I've also used it on floor mats but you have to be careful...

    Fuel Pump Replacement Video

    He's a lot more laid back in person. I've driven past his house a few times. (We have pools on his street) but never stopped by there. I've met him at the track events though. Brian stopped by and he gave him some free stuff like plate frames and key chains though. He was laid back then too. His...

    Fuel Pump Replacement Video

    I have about the largest hands possible and connector access wasn't too bad. The 05 and up is worse than the 04 as the fuel line connections canbe removed at the fuel filter still. The pressure sensor is also on the back if the tank on those too.

    Fuel Pump Replacement Video

    Watching him use a screwdriver on the fuel pump collar made me cringe. I've never personally seen it but have heard of sparks going and ignighting fumes on people for doing that. Brass punch is what you should use do that doesn't happen. Otherwise yes, as long as the fuel level is low the tank...

    Any tool recommendations please?

    I think my IR is 35 years old now... aside from being heavy as hell and loud it went toe for toe with the much higher rated torque wise earthquakes I have. The big thing is the anvil size and impacts per minute. Lower impacts per minute is just going to last longer. That's my observation on why...

    What did you do to your GMT today?

    Put the new instrument cluster in the sierra. Drove it. Gotta love the 6.0l sound.

    Any tool recommendations please?

    Electric for flexibility, air if you don't need that. I'm usually not working close enough to the garage to be able to use air all the time. That being said, you don't have to worry about a dead battery. It always dies on you in the worst spot on the hardest to reach bolt... Ask me how I know...

    I finally killed the earthquake. Apparently dropping it on my face is the only thing that can do it though... I walked in and the guy at the counter started crying. The new store by me has been open a year and that was the first one to come back. I guess I know how to break them... or my face is...

    NEED HELP Replace Control Arms or Just Bushings?

    I've done it both ways... just get the brackets. Not worth it. I've also marked it twice. The TB wasn't even close. The escalade when it went to the alignment shop was quote" "dead on except the tierods"
