    Well folks, Hurricane Ida is bearing down on Louisiana which is home to a bunch of guys on here. For those of you who know the Lord, please keep these folks in your prayers. As of 7AM the maximum sustained winds were 150 MPH, that's like a nuclear blast, just slabs left. My thoughts are...

    Well, what would you do?

    While I was in the hospital the refrigerant in the cooling system bled down. Sniffer didn't locate a leak and neither did the dealership. When we pulled the front bumper cover to do other work, we found the leak, it was at the lower connection on the condenser with the line that goes to the...

    Virtual or Reality?

    Was recently asked to do a comparison between what the engine computer shows as the alcohol content and by taking an actual sample of the onboard fuel from the fuel rail. Both vehicles have been driven less than 30 miles since refueling. The 2012 6.2 Sierra showed a virtual alcohol content of...

    Now What?!?!

    A week or two ago, while we were removing the wheel well liners, we noticed that the #4 spark plug was loose. The wire and shield were bouncing around and exhaust gases were coming out from around the plug. No misfires or CELs. A few days later I inspected the plug, ******* it back in and put...

    How Does This Thing Come Apart???

    Had picked out an OTC spring compressor and then later, in the interest of economy, chose one of those two piece jobs that go on either side the coils. Several of the reviewers said that they used them on our 900s so I bought it. Well, they must have meant a hot wheel or matchbox car because...

    Best Way To Re-Attach Door Moldings???

    My door moldings have seen better days and the ends on some have come unglued and are hanging in the wind. A few of them could benefit from a fresh coat of paint. So what product is best to reattach them to the doors? Would RTV work until we get through Christmas?

    Lock Up Clutch Logic

    Here's what happens and my question is, is it normal? Slow acceleration from a stop to 40 mph the converter will not lock up in 5th or 6th and continues to slip, the command to lockup says NO. Once speed is reached and cruise control set, stays unlocked. Quicker acceleration from a stop to 40...

    For those of you that can see your Fuel Pump Module, what are your Fuel Pump trims? Mine started off at about 1.25 three years ago and is now at 1.54. Is this a sign of the pump's health? And if so, how high means it is time to replace?

    Extending Battery Life

    Extending Battery Life The battery in my truck was showing its age. Now it had never let us down, always started, but the State of Charge (SOC) was dropping week after week. The ACDelco 48PS battery was manufactured in August of 2016 and installed in our 2009 GMC Yukon XL in...
