    Wix 57055 leaking at seam

    My brother had one of these for a silverado do the same thing last year and he lost his engine due to no oil, not a real big oil checker mind you but anyway. Wix paid to have his engine replaced but it was almost 2 months of him going between wix and gm to get them to pay the dealership. That’s...

    Mobil 1 shear issues

    I recently had my silverado serviced at the dealer after using Mobil 1 and ac delco filter for the past couple years. I notice my oil pressure isn’t running as low at hot idle after towing in the summer. Not sure what kind they used but I can’t imagine it would be anything other then bulk oil...

    Alternator or bad battery?

    I believe it is some kind of draw on it. When I drove it every day never had an issue. Now it may set for a couple weeks before it’s started and it’s a no go.

    Alternator or bad battery?

    My sister had a 02 that they rarely drove and to keep from jumping it they unhooked a battery terminal. Could be onto something. If that’s the case I’ll throw a solar trickle charger on it.

    HDEOs not suitable for high RPM?

    I for the first time ran 10w30 delvac in my mower this spring due to not being able to find the smal engine oil I always used. Engine sounded horrible had a pretty good lifter rattle. Went to my dealer a couple weeks after I put it in and they had the kohler brand stuff finally. It was so noisy...

    Alternator or bad battery?

    I have a 2000 silverado 1500 that I have had for quite some time that I used to daily drive but the past couple years I rarely drive it due to getting a new truck. Decided to keep the old one for a backup/beater rig but I swear the thing goes through batteries like crazy. I have an interstate...

    John Deere easy change?

    So this winter the father in law had some health issues and is unable to mow this spring for the time being. I was volunteered to mow for him using his John deer rider. Mowed for a bit and he wanted me to change oil in it as well I said sure. I found the large pre filled filter and apparently...

    Craftsman pressure washer/ Briggs engine

    That’s what I’m thinking to. I figure its a throw away and not worry about basic maintenance. To me a $400 piece of equipment isn’t throw away after a couple seasons BUT that’s todays way of thinking.

I figure this year I would go against their advice and change it anyway. No drain plug to be found. How do I drain the oil out?.was thinking of draining the...

    What is "severe service" by OEM's and your definition?

    shirt trips, extended duke pretty much. Just change it a little early and keep up on it. Engine won’t know the difference

    Changing oil myself this year. Warranty concerns?

    Yea I hate to be a pain in the *** with them but it pretty much burns a half day just getting a service.

    Changing oil myself this year. Warranty concerns?

    I purchased a 19 silverado new back in fall of 19. I have been taking it to the dealer for services since I have a lifetime powertrain warranty. Well ever since Covid they for some reason stopped doing oil changes on the weekends. So in order for me to continue to do this I have to take time off...
