tranmission cooling

I tow near the limit for my truck 09 6l 1500 with tow max.Does tow haul change the operation of the cooling fans? The tranny runs much cooler in tow haul and the fans never seem to shut off.I know it changes other peramiturs. Fan running all the time is worth the extra cooling for tranny to me, seem to be 30 to 40 deg f cooler. Just curious how this is accomplished. Does the ...

Popping noise when turning Popping noise when turning

Ok I have not been able to find a thread with my particular scenario.

When turning, regardless of speed or terrain my truck generates a popping noise from my driver side wheel well that can be felt in the steering wheel. I have already checked my bearings, both driver and passenger side are good. I had read that a bad CV shaft could be the culprit. However both CV shafts are brand new. I believe ...

Terrible shift quality

Hello everyone. About a year ago I picked up a new 2013 Sierra Z71 4x4, ext cab, 5.3, 6 speed auto. While I love the ride/handling compared to my old 2000 Sierra and it’s a great looking truck, drivability with this 6 speed just sucks. I've put about 20k miles on it and I just can't get used to it. Hesitation, clunking, thudding, downshifting hard/lurching forward when slowing down sometimes, and most annoying is an ...

4WD Low Won't Disengage 4WD Low Won't Disengage

So last Friday I used 4Low to pull a forklift that was spinning on loose gravel at work. I had it in neutral before I switched to 4Low and everything engaged as normal. I only needed to basically idle to get the forklift back onto solid ground, unhooked the chain, and tried to disengage 4lo. I put the transmission in neutral, switched to 4Hi first, and... nothing. Since then, I've tried the rolling switch, I've ...

Common Drivetrain Issues - What Are they?

Hello All,

I've done some looking here, and it doesn't seem like we have any sort of compilation or general consensus of drivetrain weak links or common problems in this forum.

I found myself asking this question so I can try to do some preventative maintenance or even preventative upgrades to keep my drivetrain intact as long as possible.

So, for my case: 2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT crew cab 4x4 5.3L 6sp with the ...
