Mysterious ‘Chevy Shake’ Brings Much Frustration, Few Solutions

Ron Seewald thought his 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali crew cab was the truck of his dreams. In almost every way, he said, it was an improvement over his nearly identical 2014 trade-in. An irritating highway vibration showed up after about 1,000 miles and then grew worse. After a trip to a dealer produced no remedy, Seewald explored online and discovered a community of owners with complaints about vibrating GM pickups and full-size SUVs. What some call the “Chevy Shake” is a mysterious problem affecting a small percentage of 2014 and newer Chevrolet and GMC half-ton pickup trucks, as well as current-generation Chevy, GMC and Cadillac full-size, truck-based SUVs. Even more problematic than not knowing when or if your truck will develop the shake is that it appears to be difficult to isolate. Owners such as Seewald and clever dealers are trying a variety of remedies — new tires, new U-bolts, different wheel alignments and even reattaching roof bows in certain SUVs. There also is talk that GM’s new Magnetic Ride Control shocks could be involved, something dealer techs tell Seewald they can’t test. This whole issue is exasperating for Seewald, who has purchased ...

10 Best Bamboo Bath Towels: Which Is Right for You? (2019)

While it seems like an easy task, shopping for the best bath towel can be kind of overwhelming. Bamboo is a great material for bath towels as it is stronger and more absorbent than standard cotton towels, meaning you can get more use out of your towels for longer periods of time. Bamboo is also naturally hypoallergenic and mildew resistant, so you won’t have to worry about your towels developing that funky wet smell over time. Cariloha is known for creating high quality bamboo products. This towel set is no different, as it is made with a bamboo and Turkish cotton blend that is super soft on your skin. The material is a good medium weight, and the yarn is 600 grams per square meter so it’s perfect for absorbing water. The set includes one bath towel (30 inches by 56 inches), one hand towel (16 inches by 30 inches) and one washcloth (13 inches by 13 inches), so this set is ideal for outfitting your own bath, or even a guest bathroom. Available in seven serene colors, it’s easy to match your existing bath decor. This set of three bath towels is 100% made from bamboo. Hypoallergenic and non-toxic, this towel set is a great choice for those who are sensitive to certain fibers and od...

Big ol’ motors are great when you need to get a big job done, but they

Big ol’ motors are great when you need to get a big job done, but they can be expensive or hard to source new. However, there’s a source of big, fat, juicy motors right at home for most people – the garden variety washing machine. These motors would usually require a special controller, however [Jerry] is here to show us how to hack the controller that comes with the machine. The hack begins as [Jerry] decides to gut a Maytag MAH7500 Neptune front loader. Many projects exist that borrow the motor but rely on a seperately sourced variable frequency drive, so the goal was to see if the machine’s original controller was usable. The machine was first troubleshooted using a factory service mode, which spins the drum at a set speed if everything is working correctly. From there, it was a relatively simple job to source the machine schematics to identify the pinouts of the various connectors.  After some experimentation with a scope and a function generator, [Jerry] was able to get the motor spinning with the original controller doing the hard work. It’s a simple hack, and one that relies on the availability of documentation to get the job done, but it’s a great inspiration for anyone ...

Hyundai breaking the mould in traditional SUV design

SY Lee, the senior vice-president & head of Hyundai Global Design Centre, has earlier worked on brands such as Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette, and Bentley Bentayga and Mulsanne, which have no similarity with the Venue—the car he and his team have designed. “Sub-4 metre is a unique size for an SUV, not seen anywhere in the world,” he says. In an interview with FE’s Vikram Chaudhary, he adds that a major challenge was in ensuring that the Venue doesn’t look like a stripped-down version of the Creta, and so his team “used unique design elements such as rectangular design details and splitting the headlamp at the top and the bottom.” It’s a unique size for an SUV, not seen anywhere in the world. So, it was quite a challenge to design the Venue. But we’ve had great success with the Creta (which is slightly bigger than 4 metres in length), and we used those learnings. All along, we also didn’t want the Venue to look like a cheaper version of the Creta, so for this unique segment we faced unique challenges, but we are happy that we’ve been able to create a distinctive design. In particular, the cascading grille with the criss-cross pattern, I believe, makes the Venue look more expen...
