  1. Camshaft lifter failure

    I have ordered an oil sample kit. Hopefully it comes.es back clean. I'll keep you posted.
  2. Camshaft lifter failure

    I'm most likely going to run untill it's close to warranty running out. Just a hard pill to swallow.
  3. Camshaft lifter failure

    I went to the dealership while engine was apart and took the pictures of the metal in the engine.
  4. 2017 Silverado1500 6.2 L 25000 miles engine starts to tick. Drive to dealership and after 1 week they put a camshaft and lifters in under warranty. I'm so upset I went in and took pictures. Metal shavings in engine. Went in and spoke to service manager and expressed my concerns. I got the brush off. I want a new engine.

    My SS was Black I really loved the truck but these new ones I love too. I am taking delivery tomorrow. The dealer has been great. I think because I went to them with a good attitude. I know I should of done more research but I can't change the past. I will take pics when I get it.

    True but how about the 6.2 with a supercharger and don't forget the 8 speed transmission.
  9. I purchased a new 2017 Silverado LTZ Z71 5.3 with the 6 speed 3.42 gears. I test drove it for only 6 miles. I love everything about this truck but the powertrain. I went in to my dealer and told them that I was not happy with the shifting and the power of the truck. At this point I had 1200 miles on it. (Mind you I just sold my 2004 Silverado SS that would run 12.50's in the 1/4 mile). So they let me test drive the exact same truck but with a 6.2 8 speed with 3.23 gears. I told them I would like to put some miles on it so I did. Now I am trading it in for the new 6.2 8 speed. There is a huge difference in performance. I took a $3000 hit but it was my fault and the dealer is swapping my 22" wheels on the new truck. Whipple is now in the future. Oh..... Black thats the color.
