  1. All I see are DJs

    Wife and I were driving and started counting which we saw more DJs or her GMC Terrains ? There are a lot of DJs out there for sure, plus Chrysler Jeeps. Not sure if is just our area in the south end of Ontario ?
  2. Too much torque?

    Might be a good idea to think about the 2015 battery too , changed my 2012 couple years ago. Since you will be removing the wheel well cover to reset / disconnecting the battery cables.
  3. Transmission fluid

    After seeing this thread and our 2012 3.6 L having 99300 kms it was time. Loosened the lower corner only allowing a limited drain ( no mess) then lowered the entire cover. removed all residual sealant from cover face and cleaned the inside including the magnet. Did the same on the transmission face after allowing it to drip naturally for about an hour, then cleaned both faces with brake cleaner to be sure surface was clean. Removing the old filter was easy only two torx screws to remove then twist and pull but, the small sleeve remained in place. Did not want to risk damaging the insert smooth walls and still not get it out. So, we left the original one in place and did not use the new replacement. The new filter minus the replacement sleeve took a little force to slip into the sleeve but you felt in slip into position and knew it was seated properly. Had a second set of hands hold a rag over the the small dip of fluid still leaking so not to leak on any of the sealant before both faces were together. Remove the rag as you are lifting the cover back into place. Now for the fluid replacement, we used ATF+4 not a general ATF. We measured the volume of fluid in the drain pan after also emptying the fluid from the old filter, about 6 quarts / liters. This amount was slowly installed using a long neck funnel into the tube marked for dealer use only. We then did the usual add about half the volume and going thru all gears then adding the remainder. Check for leaks from the cover and hopefully none and you are good to go. Cost was about $120 Cdn total.
  4. mwsdhd, I tested my sunroof drains (2) after noticing a couple small water marks on each of the "A" post where it meets the roof liner. My two drains exit on each side alongside the inside of the front tires, on the same side as the drain holes.
  5. Rubber drip edge on top of inside of liftgate

    Half of the left side had come off, you can see some glue above the left side top now.
  6. That flexible rubber strip was about half off of my 2012, you see it when lift gate is fully open; attached to the underside of the liftgate top. I used gorilla glue to re-attach but am now curious what that rubber strip is for really ? It looks like a drip edge you would find over a storm door but does not go the whole width of the liftgate opening. Does it help with wind noise or simply force water entering the seem to go to the sides and not drip on you when open ?
  7. Great idea, thanks I will do just that
  8. FYI : From a article I just found, the SXT , Crew and R/T trim packages indicate as having a 6 speed transmission the SE in noted as being a 4 cylinder 4 speed base model.
  9. Trying to count the shifts but wanted to verify 100 %, and want to change the fluid myself as it is not a difficult job just takes a little time. I thought there was a link on this site posted some time ago but a search did not result in one. The ones I did check did not offer that specific info when I input my vin # , just thought I would ask here before asking a dealer. There will be a time when I will not be able to do some of this type work myself or we simply cannot anymore but, not there yet. Thanks, will see if utube can show how to tell tranny speed you have.
  10. I thought I kept my window sticker but guess not. I want to change my trans fluid but cannot find a site / link to give my transmission speed based on my vin #, but I bought a 6 speed tranny filter kit. Can anyone help me with this ? thanks
  11. Engine cooling upgrade

    Just had a coolant flush in my 2012 last April / May at 95,000 kms, Fresh coolant no other issues noted, why mess with something that is already working fine ? Apex87, it has been a month did that do the trick in bringing the temp down to your normal 220 ?
  12. Eileen

    No disrespect to Eileen, but I for one enjoy paying 50% for a part that does the same job 99 % of the time. Anyone want to bet ? I think the part was ordered from the e-Bay link provided LOL Hope it works out for you Eileen
  13. Eileen

    No clue but hopefully my 2012 does not have same issue, have you been provided with a loaner all this time ? RF meaning radio frequency , what does this part do ?
  14. After you do jump start it, go and get the charging system and battery diagnosed. First see if there is a problem with the alternator or battery themselves.I just changed my original 2012 battery this past Spring.Then, move on from there.
  15. Had my battery replaced yesterday

    Install included, good deal. Dealing with the rusted on nut for the hold down bolt is worth the money alone ! LOL
