    Get out and ride

    Use to ride down into the 30"s and 40"s but can't get anyone to get out anymore. I guess they are all getting old. I am only 68 and not stopping until i take the big dirt nap.

    Battery voltage goes down

    I disconnected the ground cable when i did the parasitic draw testing and it was 0.003 milliamps. I have been watching the battery in this cold weather and all seems well right now. I will drive the truck next week after all this salt is gone.

    Battery voltage goes down

    If the alternator diodes were bad wouldn't you get a amp draw in the test ? Would you get some kind of OHM reading between the alternator case and hot post of the alternator ? This would be with the battery disconnected .

    Battery voltage goes down

    The above post #11 seems to be what is going on. I talked to a tech at a dealer and he seems to think it's normal behavior of these new charging systems. My owner manual has the exact same thing in it. I carry a jump pack with me so i won't be stuck it if would go dead on me, so we will see how...

    Battery voltage goes down

    OK, I just did the amp draw test and it's drawing 0.003 on the ground cable. So i don't think i have any parasitic draw on the truck. No voltage drop from the battery to the alternator. Battery still at 12.7. Voltage seems to be lower after i drive the truck. Maybe i am just to old school and...

    Battery voltage goes down

    I read somewhere that you can put your multimeter in AC mode and check the battery for AC voltage. If it shows AC voltage at the battery the Diodes are bad in the alternator. Is this a creditable test ?

    Active Fuel Management (AFM) heavier oil better for lifters?

    Thanks ! I do have the AFM turned off as i can not stand it. Whenever it does fail i am gonna install the LS 7 cam and LS 9 lifters and all the other goodies to rid myself of this system. Problem is i also have a 06 Monte Carlo with the same AFM system.

    Active Fuel Management (AFM) heavier oil better for lifters?

    Had a question about the active fuel managment on GM trucks and cars. Getting ready to change the oil in a new to me 11 Tahoe 5.3. I have read that using a heavier grade oil like 10w40 may make this afm lifters last longer. Is there any truth behind it ?
