I know not asking for any thing other than the name of the guy but if a LML owner or any GM diesel truck truck owner and looking for good info then welcome. Here are some things to help you out find info and answers fast on the forum. So the normal welcome.

Welcome to Diesel Place Forum. Lots of great info here. To help you out to make the most use of the forum site here are a few things to do and use.

1. Search Tool:
The Search Tool is the most powerful feature on this site. Keeping the search text simply helps a lot on finding answers to probably the most common ask questions.

2. Search This Forum Tool:
Of course some searches produce many pages of post. One possible way to narrow your search is goto one of the many varies sections. Once in that section you will see a an option called Search This Forum. Enter your search item there and it only search in that section instead of the entire site.

3. Google Search:
Another great way to search is goto Google and search there. Many results point back to this forum site.

4. Signature Setup:
Next is fill out your Signature with your vehicle specs and mods done. Try to keep it updated as vehicle or mods change. Knowing what you have will usually get better and faster answers to your questions. You can locate this under your User CP that is located up in the tool bar of the forum site.So take some time and get this filled out. The updated info will show up in your next post.

5. Sticky Post:
Under many of the forum sections at the top are what is called Sticky Post. Lots of great info under each of them. Be sure to take a look at them to see what one can learn from them. Example in each of the Engine sections is a sticky post that contains a link to a DTC code tool. Enter your code there and learn what it is. Then you can goto a related section and search on it for best results.

6. Posting a problem and what to gather to help it go quicker:
A good thing to do first if you have a Check Engine Light is get the code or codes read first. The codes can tell what is wrong without guessing. Even if you have a Reduce Engine or any DIC display message and no CEL then still have it scanned for codes. If no code reader usually a autoparts store will read them for you but not all. Write everything down that it shows. Now if you have your own scanner and pull the P0700 code and nothing else time for a new code reader. That is the generic code off the ECM meaning the TCM has thrown some codes but the reader you have is not reading the codes off the TCM. Other info be like weather when it happened like low temperature may mean fuel gelling or if driving through snow the intake filter box may be full of snow.
