Well as another snowplowing season has about ended my 07 2500
is due to get unstrapped from the plow and could use a good rest
as well as a nice polish and detail. The poor thing worked hard pushing
our daily major snowfalls and lake effect squalls here in northern NY.
No issues or problems and truck has needed nothing but a oil and filter
change! Its gonna rest for a few weeks then its time to put it back to work
hauling the camper, boat, jet skis or big toy box for another summer of fun!

Well approaching 26k miles almost 3 yrs old and another snowplowing season
is nearing this 07 gmt-900 2500 is ready for snowplow duty once again!
As far as issues or problems I had to have the steering rack? replaced under
warranty for leaks. Aside of that NO other issues and no other work needed except for a few more $19.95 oil changes.
I am still unsure if I will trade it this spring 2010 as I usually do with all my trucks
as the economy still sucks, my businesses are slow and this bad boy is paid for
not to mention the 5/100 warranty will cover any drivetrain issues that might pop up
pounding this poor unit snowplowing cuz it ain't no driveway queen!
#117 of 118 Transmission/Torque Converter Problem
Nov 25, 2009 (10:34 am)
I have a 2006 Silverado 2500 4x4 with a 4.10 rear end and 6.0L engine. This problem is getting worse and worse. The truck shifts fine until I get up to interstate speeds (65-70mph) and then hesitates prior to going into overdrive. It will run 2800 rpm at 70mph on flat land. The only times it will go into overdrive is when just starting up a hill (sometimes). When in OD, it will hold 70mph up a 9% grade at 2400 rpm. As soon as the road levels off or starts down, the rpms will jump back to 2800 and it will no longer be in OD and will not return to OD. My interstate mileage has dropped from 14 to 10 with no load. Any ideas? Torque Converter issue possibly?
On a side note, the computer has been spewing out codes indicating 3 of the 8 cylinders are repeatedly misfiring. Dealer has cleaned the fuel injectors and ran some sort of GM fuel system cleaner through the system, but the problem persists.

Long time no post as these forums are a ghost town since these forums turned into a pro import/anti American vehicle site !
Still have my 07 Chevy 2500 4x4 gmt-900 now with a measly 56k miles.
No issues of any sort and the only maint. has been oil and filter changes, a new set of tires at 35k, brake pads all around and rear rotors along with a tranny service at 50k.
Still workin' it plowing snow in the winter and pulling the boat, camper or toy box in the summer.
Will wait for the 2014s for a new GM truck at this point...........................
