In addition, the trucks will have accumulated more than 7 million real-world miles during final testing, bringing total test miles to more than 13 million. The result is an engine that is quieter, smoother and more dependable, even under the toughest conditions. Riding on a new platform and featuring a lineup of all-new engines EcoTec3 , the vehicle has been completely re-designed and re-engineered for improved all-around performance — thereby improving on an already very capable formula. I measured it and it came to 7. Its dual-pressure control enables operation at a very efficient oil pressure at lower rpm, and then delivers higher pressure at higher engine speeds to provide a more robust lubrication. The engines also feature a new cylinder-head design and a new, sculpted piston to optimize the mixing of air and fuel in the engine and the burning of the mixture to create power.
Simply click on the button below, and then follow the directions to prepare a complete and printable list of filters and fluid capacities for your vehicle. Do not use an oil filter wrench to tighten the new filter. If your Silverado 1500 is too low to the ground to access your drain plug and oil filter, be sure to use jack stands and safe jacking procedures before getting under your Silverado 1500. Note: I am not a registered charity. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.
New four-wheel-disc brakes with Duralife rotors improve brake feel and potentially double rotor life. We recommend wearing safety glasses whenever you are working under your Silverado 1500. The system incorporates natural voice recognition and enough ports and power outlets to support multiple devices. In the case of the Chevy, the luxury goods make for a lovely package. That's like a 45 percent increase on the 5. Pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean, re-insert it and pull it out again to check the oil level. Engines based on the Small Block architecture are typically smaller and lighter than competitive engines with overhead camshafts, and typically have lower friction.
The new availability allows customers to carry more cargo while still being able to park the 2014 Silverado in many garages. And then there was the pièce de résistance: the 6. Slide the used oil catch basin to just below the oil drain bolt. The recall began on December 26, 2014. The heads features smaller combustion chambers shaped to complement the unique topography of the piston heads. The engines also feature a new cylinder-head design and a new, sculpted piston to optimize the mixing of air and fuel in the engine and the burning of the mixture to create power. The recall began on August 11, 2016.
Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes, turn off the engine and allow the oil to drain back down to the oil pan for at least 5-10 minutes. There was a tsp regarding overfilling so they changed it. This movement may result in the fatigue and separation of the cable. In the affected vehicles, the chassis electronic module may be internally contaminated, resulting in an electrical short. Buy 2 gallon jugs, and one extra qt. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. Also, the spark plug angle has been revised and the electrode is now closer to the center of the chamber to support optimal combustion.
The recall began on October 13, 2016. But the case for calling it all-new is solid. This increased efficiency can now be maintained over a broader range of operating conditions. All are paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. A rugged, large displacement engine is well suited to reliably providing this power and torque, year in and year out. Secondly, it also helps cool the engine somewhat, giving extra protection to the engine.
In addition, the all-new 4. Rear doors on crew cabs are larger, for easier entry and exit, and rear doors on double cab models are now hinged at the front for easier access, especially in tight spots. This video shows you the location of your oil drain plug, oil filter, oil fill cap and dipstick in addition to the steps needed to change the oil and filter in your Silverado 1500. This helps reduce piston temperature, enabling the engine to maintain maximum horsepower and torque, and also reduces engine noise. Spin in the oil drain bolt by hand a few turns in the clockwise direction to prevent it from becoming cross threaded.
This video shows you how to change the oil and oil filter in your 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Turn the ignition to run do not start the engine. Sure I can have the labor done at the dealership for free, but they should cover some cost of the oil as well. The cast iron manifolds feature saw cuts along their cylinder head mounting flange, which split the flange into three separate sections on the V6 and four separate sections on the V8s, allowing each section to move under extreme hot-cold temperature fluctuations to virtually eliminate movement of the exhaust manifold gaskets. You may be able to access the drain bolt and oil filter without raising the front of the vehicle.
The cast iron manifolds feature saw cuts along their cylinder head mounting flange, which split the flange into three separate sections on the V6 and four separate sections on the V8s, allowing each section to move under extreme hot-cold temperature fluctuations to virtually eliminate movement of the exhaust manifold gaskets. The Silverado looks a lot like the last one on the outside with some influence from the heavy-duty line. Most Chevrolets have the oil type printed on the oil cap - it will likely be 5W-20, 5W-30, 5W-40, 10W-30 or 10W-40. If necessary, slowly pour in more oil while repeatedly checking the level on the dipstick until it reaches just at or below the upper dot in the cross hatched area. Start the engine and let it run for a few minutes, turn off the engine and allow the oil to drain back down to the oil pan for at least 5-10 minutes.
If the vehicle is in a crash, the air bags may not deploy, increasing the risk of occupant injury. Case in point: the 6. This helps reduce piston temperature, enabling the engine to maintain maximum horsepower and torque, and also reduces engine noise. Although package size is usually not a concern with full-size pickups, lighter weight and lower friction can both contribute to improved efficiency. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed. Also, I think the added oil capacity serves 2 purposes.
