Blew an engine oil cooler line at like 6000 rpm in the old 05 today. Saw it saying oil pressure low and some smoke and shut it down. I am deleting the stupid cooler lines... these aren't even that old and they of course leaked a little... and failed. I have a bunch of the bypass plates the non oil cooler trucks run sitting around so toss one of those on, fill it up and see what it does.

These trucks up here really don't need the cooler.. or in my case heater.

If the engine is buggered I don't know really what to do. I think I might actually put that 40000 mile LQ9 I have had sitting on a stand for 7 years to use... or just fix this... who knows. I mean the LQ9 is worth more than this truck is so it's a tough decision lol.

Compleatly stupid and useless but I found out you can have the ambient air temp displayed on your hvac controls as well.
Still too lazy to dig out the old laptop and see if the remote start rpo is on the programming option.

Will swap the GMC center caps with bowtie caps when I R&R the wheels and tires, as soon as I get a chance.

Can you post a pic of your old ones??

Brightest LESs on the market is a pretty bold claim!
