This technology moves the point where fuel feeds into an engine closer to the point where it ignites, enabling greater combustion efficiency. It supports tremendous airflow at higher rpm for a broad horsepower band, along with strong, low-rpm torque. Greater engine power and torque, improved vehicle aerodynamics, lower tire rolling resistance and enhanced integration of the powertrain in the vehicles also contribute to the expanded operation. Direct Injection The new EcoTec3 engines use direct fuel injection, which precisely meters fuel directly into the cylinders, to optimize combustion over a broad range of conditions. The recall began on August 4, 2017.
No need for those band wrenches. I can't imagine how you'd get a oil filter wrench up in there. 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. Be careful when you remove the oil drain bolt. Keep in mind they make 2 sizes. The deep-skirt block design helps maximize strength and minimize vibration. The smaller chamber size and sculpted pistons produce a compression ratio of 11.
The manifolds feature saw cuts along their cylinder head mounting flange, which split the flange into three separate sections on the 4. The recall began on May 18, 2016. It is a dual-equal cam phasing system that adjusts camshaft timing at the same rate for both intake and exhaust valves. A structural aluminum oil pan further stiffens the bottom of the block. It is a corporate cousin of the Chevrolet Silverado, sharing the same platform, engines, body styles and major mechanical features. They also have a unique head topography that is essential to the direct injection system.
The double cab only comes mated to the 6-foot-6-inch bed, but the crew cabs can be had with the smallest 5-foot-8-inch bed or the 6-foot-6-inch bed. The eight-speed automatic transmission is now available with the 5. The recall began on October 13, 2016. Emissions are also reduced, particularly during cold starts, when hydrocarbon emissions are cut by about 25 percent. Nodular caps are stronger and can better absorb vibrations and other harmonics to help produce smoother, quieter performance.
More than 100 iterations of the combustion systems were evaluated through computer modeling before a final design was selected for each engine variant. For more, check out my other. A structural aluminum oil pan further stiffens the bottom of the block. While being previously remedied for recall 16V-651, the affected vehicles may not have received the complete software update necessary to remedy the recall condition. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology for accessing smartphone apps through the dashboard touch-screen is newly available. This higher compression is one of the best ways to simultaneously increases both power and efficiency.
N yes u r correct. The rocker covers also hold the direct-mount ignition coils for the coil-near-plug ignition system. Open the hood, twist off the oil filler cap in the counterclockwise direction and lift up the yellow plastic handled oil dipstick an inch or two. Double check that the oil drain bolt and new oil filter are tight before moving on to the next steps. You get our best and most sophisticated technology regardless of trim level. If you have trouble loosening the old oil filter, you may need to use an oil filter wrench such as the.
The Gen V engine family delivers greater efficiency, performance and durability thanks to a combination of advanced technologies such as direct injection, Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation , and dual-equal camshaft phasing Variable Valve Timing that support an advanced combustion system. Lifted 2002 Silverado z71 5. The ability to more precisely control combustion also enables the new engines to run with a higher compression ratio — 11. This increased efficiency can now be maintained over a broader range of operating conditions. It is a single-bore design with a 72mm on the 4. The contours of the piston heads are machined after casting to ensure dimensional accuracy — essential for precise control of mixture motion and the compression ratio. The bore and stroke dimensions are 3.
It is far better to have slightly less oil than necessary in an engine than to over fill it. An electronically controlled throttle is mounted to the intake manifold. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash. Competitors include the Ford F-150, Ram 1500 and Toyota Tundra. The 2014 Silverado and 2014 Sierra make the most of the technology, with improved engine mounts, electronic throttle control, adaptive exhaust systems, improved aerodynamics, low-rolling resistance tires, and other technologies that help the engines operate in four-cylinder mode for longer periods of time, further increasing efficiency. The pistons play an integral role in the direct injection system, as they feature dished heads designed to direct the fuel spray for a more complete combustion.
The Sierra comes standard with StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, trailer sway control, integrated brake controller, and hill start assist. Seems as it would just go everywhere, since I have it elevated to get under the truck. Yes I was using the dimple. The 2014 Silverado and 2014 Sierra make the most of the technology, with improved engine mounts, electronic throttle control, adaptive exhaust systems, improved aerodynamics, low-rolling resistance tires, and other technologies that help the engines operate in four-cylinder mode for longer periods of time, further increasing efficiency. Allow the old oil to drain out for at least a few minutes. You may not need to pour in the entire 6 quarts of new oil depending on how long you allowed the old oil to drain out. The exhaust manifolds also feature triple-layer stainless steel heat shields, which limit heat transfer to the engine bay and help further reduce noise.
