Get a tune from Blackbear, Diablo, or another competent tuner.
muddkatt replied to njs2247's topic in 2014 / 2015 / 2016 / 2017 / 2018 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500When I was a small child, I was playing with a marble on the dash of my grandmothers new 1970 Impala. Well eventually it found its way down the defroster duct. That damn thing rolled from one side to the other every time you turned a curve for the next 18 years...... You might get lucky and try accessing it through the cabin air filter and /or blower motor. I would adjust the defrost/heat/ac location settings hoping it would work its way to the bottom. If that doesn't work then you will have to start pulling the dash....
They do it so that the drive train is not subjected to instant full load conditions. Keeps the amount of parts failures down for warranty jobs, and the truck will get 0.01 MPG better fuel mileage to meet CAFE requirements.
It is "normal" due to the tuning that GM put in the truck. It actually takes a full 3 seconds from the time you stomp the gas pedal until the butterfly valve opens to WOT.

Had that happen a lot back in the old mechanical fuel pump and carburetor days. Only had it happen once on the 2001 Sierra, was a clogged fuel filter.

muddkatt replied to willadams1998's topic in 1999-2006 & 2007-2013 Chevrolet Silverado & GMC Sierra 1500^^X2 I will say that if it has the piston slap, don't let that kill the deal. My 01 5.3 has had it since I bought it brand new and it now has 321000 miles on it and has never had a wrench on it. Check the transmission and make sure the fluid is pink, just because it is "new" means nothing in my book.

Since you mention that the heated seats etc says on, I would venture to say that you turned the key off, but have not yet opened the door, correct?
