  1. V8 Engine & Drivetrain

    I just recently bought a 5.3l v8 and I’m just wondering what to expect to buy for it. Could the current wiring harness on it convert with it? What other parts may I need to swap out with it? Could the current tranny be fine with running with the 5.3l for a few months before I buy a new tranny...

  10. I4/I5 Engine & Drivetrain
    I was driving up to the mountain this morning and all of a sudden my engine began revving up, pulled over, shut the truck off, took a look couldn't figure it out, so I tried turning on the truck and it made a whining noise. Then towed it home, took out the starter, had it tested and it was bad...

  17. Brakes (2015+)
    I was dismayed to find out my 2018 Colorado with towing package didn't include proportional braking control for towed vehicles. (Thanks a lot GM marketing geniuses.) The indicated place on the dash left of steering column, and hidden behind steering wheel has a blank cover where the control(s)...
