How would I tell if it's bad? It seems to run good. Would it be a matter of just replacing the lifters if it goes bad? How much for an engine rebuild or used replacement? Is it possible it is still ok from afm issues?
Looking at a 07 sierra 1500 nbs w the 5.3. If I buy I plan on buying a range to disable the afm immediately. Afm aside are these motors as reliable as the previous generation 5.3? It has 164k on it now, looking to get 3-4 good years out of it driving 15k a year at the most. Is that realistic and is there any other major issues with 07-13 gm trucks
Found a 07 Silverado 1500 classic crew I'm leaning towards buying. Lower miles and truck is in pretty good shape with the exception of some rocker panel rust. Not sure I want to stick money into replacing them right away. What rocker panel covers do you recommend and is there anything I should do to the rust prior to putting them on? Also what is the proper way to paint these to match the truck? Then maybe a few years down the road I'll decide if it's worth replacing them or not
Looking at buying a 2008 Silverado 1500 ls crew 4x4 158k for $9000. Rust free. Does this seem like a good deal and also is it realistic to a good 4-5 years without dumping a ton of money into it besides normal wear and tear. It'll be a daily driver putting on roughly 15,000 miles a year. Also it has the 4.8 so no afm issues to worry about.
Looking at purchasing a 05 Silverado. In pretty good shape with minimal rust minus rust hole at bottom of rear extended cab door surrounded by paint bubbling/breaking. What is the best way to go about fixing this since the bottom of the door has been eaten away by rust? Or would it be easier to find a used door and have it painted to match? It is two tone black/pewter.
Looking at a couple trucks, ones a 05 Silverado 1500 with 175000 miles and the other is 07 nbs w 150k. Is it unrealistic to expect to get many more years out of either of these trucks without completely breaking the bank? Both reasonably good shape w normal rust for year. If something big does go wrong, tranny, engine problems etc are they reasonably cheap to fix given the large quantity of 5.3 l, parts etc out there?
Where's the best place to look for a replacement 6.5 bed for a 2007 nbs silverado 1500 ? Imperial blue metallic. No luck on local craiglist etc. box sides above wheels are rusted bad and not sure if itd be cheaper/possible to fix vs a new bed. how much can I expect to pay for one and how much to paint if I can't find matching color?
Are the 1999-2002 pewter truck beds the same style/color as the 2003? I have a 03 light pewter metallic hoping to find a replacement bed already painted? Any ideas where to look and guess on how much to paint if I can't find one in pewter?
This is in regards to the 01 Silverado I posted about a few days ago. It is solid blue, paint is in good shape. Planning on replacing rockers in somewhat near future. Always have liked two tones, Would it look bad to just paint the lower half of truck pewter or dark gray after new rockers. Didn't know if it would like mismatched w original paint up top - which is in good condition- and fresh paint on lower half
Looking at a low mileage 01 Silverado. Looks to be in pretty good shape with the exception of the rockers. Not that they look that bad but the previous owner spray foamed the inside. Will this cause it to rust worse? Would you recommend taking all of it out for now and welding new rockers in the future? I don't really want to spend the money putting new rockers in right away but maybe within a year or so.
Hello looking at purchasing a 03 half ton ext cab RWD w low miles, good shape. Couple questions I had. It has a msd super conductor - what is this and should I leave it? I want it to have the look of a stock 4wd. What do you recommend? 2 in leveling kit?
