  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    Hi all, Mentioned to my cousin that when you pull into a parking spot with a 9SP S/S, the car shuts off in Drive, only to restart when going into Park, only to be shut down again.... She suggested leaving it in Drive, hitting the Stop button and then shifting the car into Park... Can't believe...

    My 1st post here and I look forward to all the knowledge. I am trading my Corvette for a new '17 diesel and since the dealer is just over 1k miles away,I want to break in the engine correctly. I'm not sure the salesperson is familiar with the procedure since they sell few diesels,so I'm counting...
  3. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    Hi, I have the p0171 code (again) and want to rule out the corrugated hose that runs from the intake to the turbo inlet as the cause. Just wondering if someone here has already done a write-up on how to remove and test this hose. I know how to remove it from the intake end ( thanks XR) but not...

    Does anyone know if the automatic transmission has to be drained and refilled when you replace the cooler lines? I'm asking because I have one of those ones with a slow leak at the fittings and was also thinking about getting a transmission fluid change. I'm also lucky enough to have an extended...
  7. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello, after perusing the forums on the site I am having difficulty deciphering the difference between a TPMS relearn procedure vs registering new TPMS sensors with the vehicle. Are there different procedures for each task or is one procedure good for both jobs? For transparency's sake, I just...

  9. Gen1 Service Issues
    Hey Guys, Just had a quick question and wondered if anyone would know. When the dealer performs the half shaft replacement for our recall, do they end up having to change the differential fluid as well? I don't know much of the inner workings on these cars, I just know that I have some oil...

I've heard lots of different theories about what to do. Drive hard, drive soft, speed up and slow down...
  12. Gen1 Powertrain
    No, I'm not talking about illegal entry.. What has everyone been using for a break-in procedure ? I've heard so many ways through the years...everything from "just drive it easy for the first 500 miles" to "Drive it like you stole it, if it's any good it won't hurt it" MHF
