Changed the oil in my LML. I don’t really like the filter location on these trucks, makes for kind of a messy job. I used Shell Rotella T6 15W-40.

Picked up the Toy Hauler this morning 4 hour rond trip uneventful. Then I tore the front off the truck to clean the cooling stack HOLY CRAP. Now the question is .. Since I am here should I replace the fan clutch I ordered new Radiator hoses should be here today. My choices are Duralast or Murry.. Only thing in stock.

While cleaning the intercooler I was blowing air through adn drying it. I have plastic bags with rubber bands on the in and outlet. I sawthe bag move. When I apply air around the plastic out let where it is fatoy sealed I see the opposite bag move. I have alway thought I heard a real lite siren sound but coud never find a leak, and under hard Acclereation I can hit 27-30 based on the CTS. so I just chalked it up as not a big deal.. guess 15 yrs later its a big deal

Why replace the fan clutch? Having trouble with it? What are the symptoms?

Interesting test with the plastic bag. Air isn’t somehow being diverted and blowing across the bag somehow?

Well as for replace because I already have ti all torn down to this point and the truck now has 235,000 miles. I would rather replace now then after I have all this crap back together. As for the leak, I did some more testing and took a large tote and submerged the plastic end with teh outlet covered by a sandwich bag nad rubber band and blew air into it. NO LEAK. It appears when I was blowing air around the one back in the flat air was going across the top of the bag which made the other bag move. So I am $300. back in pocket

I ordered fox 2.0 pro reservoir shocks for the front. I’ve been waiting like 6 weeks for the regular 2.0 pros to ship and still couldn’t get an expected ship date. Cost a little more but they get here Wednesday and the shop can put them in Friday.
