Reflash, Superchips, Vibration etc.
So I had taken the truck into the dealer to see if they find my idle vibration problem. They reflashed it to the latest calibration for free. Didn't solve the vibration problem. They suggested I check that my exhaust was tight/ not bound up. I told them, it's tight as a drum, welded, with new hangers, and I neutralized it and it's not touching anything. It's not the exhaust MAN! Tech scratched his head, shrugged and said, 'no codes, so I can't do anything, have a nice life'.
--->So I took it home I had de-installed my Superchips tuner before the dealer and went to upload it again and voila! Now that they reflashed it I get this message "YOUR VEHICLE NOT SUPPORTED, USE CODE E-36, CALL SUPERCHIPS". So not only did the dealer not solve my problem, but thanks to a reflash, my tuner is now worthless to me (I'm SELLING it anyway to make room for an SCT, but I wanted to use it one last time, you know?)
Anyhow, I went through the truck with my wrenches and checked as many bolts as I could get to under the hood and under the truck. Nothing loose. The vibration is very noticeable at idle, I am NOT hallucinating, and can be felt in the following locations: dash, bedliner/bumper cover, front tires???
Do the front tires on anyone else's truck have a noticeable vibration at idle? Could my pedestal mounts be loose??? Pinpointing this is such a *****.
