I finally moved my temp sensor to the cooler the other day. I have driven it around a little unloaded, and I am seeing temps around 20 degrees hotter than I was seeing in the pan. I don't know if...

That is a voltage code. Have you verified your alternator is charging correctly? If it is, it sounds like you have a wiring problem not getting proper voltage to the ecm, and it is probably affecting...

The best course of diagnosis is to pull the trans and tear it down. Until you do that, everyone is just guessing at the problem.

Are you ordering bearings from GM or Clevite? I've never seen Clevite list A or B bearings; I've only seen GM differentiate between the two. That said, they will mix the rods in the same motor;...

I run a 285/55R20 on my truck very slightly lowered on a 20x9 +0 wheel. They wear very well and have the slightest rub on the inner wheel liner just every once in a while. I think a 295/60 would...

I don’t see many plugged up intercoolers restricting air flow through the cooling stack. Usually the stuff builds up on the radiator. I would check to make sure the new radiator doesn’t have stuff...

I would pay the truck off first. Then I would buy a second vehicle. Then I would figure out what I wanted to do with the truck before I made any other decisions.

Do you have another rail pressure sensor you can swap in or a different ECM you can test it with?
