New Chevy/GMC I4 2.8L Duramax diesel

By Rich 7 months ago 141 Views No comments

Diesel enthusiasts in the U.S. haven’t been able to buy a new midsize pickup with an oil-burning engine under the hood at any time during this century. After more than four years of engine development specifically for the needs of North American customers, General Motors is offering the 2.8L Duramax LWN diesel engine in the ’16 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. In addition to making sure the engine meets EPA emissions requirements at all times, the engineers involved in the design of the powertrain minimized noise and vibrations while making sure the engine could perform in any climate or altitude you’ll find in the U.S.

The team at Chevrolet invited us to drive Duramax-powered Colorado pickups in multiple configurations while on-road, off-road, and with a trailer in tow. After our first-hand experiences with the trucks on the streets, highways, and dirt trails around Solvang, California (the setting for the Oscar-winning movie Sideways), we have some opinions to share, but this is Diesel Power, so you probably want to know about the engine first. Here’s what we learned by bugging the engineers with questions we thought our readers might ask.

You can find out current filter offerings for the new Canyons and Colorado's here.

What's the difference between the Mann PL250 and PL250/1

They contain different media so the PL250 has a higher capacity and longer life while the PL250/1 has better filtration efficiency but lasts about half as long as the PL250.

What is UPS Surepost?

UPS Surepost is a new shipping option we've recently added. Surepost is where UPS will pick up and handle most of the trasnportation except for what UPS calls the "last mile". UPS will deliver your package to your local US Post office and the USPS will handle the final leg of the delivery. In some cases if UPS determines they have another package being delivered to your location on the same day, UPS may handle the final delivery.

Ac Delco TP3012 Updated to TP3018

Ac Delco TP3012 Updated to TP3018.

For any of you who've had a 6.6 liter Chevy Duramax from the beginning and are familiar with the fuel filter changes (TP1298/TP1298A/TP1298B/TP3012). Ac Delco has updated the filter again. This is the offical reason the part number has changed again.

The TP3018 will replace the TP3012 next year. The change involves a minor internal part geometry change, to aid in manufacturing. The performance, fit, function, etc. of the filter will not be affected. GM is instituting a part number change simply because the geometry of a component is changing. I don't think you will be able to tell the TP3012 apart from the TP3018, without cutting them open and taking them apart.
