    15 Silverado 1500
  1. Just bought a 15 Silverado 5.3 with 35,000 miles. Only hade it a week and a lifter stuck bent a push rod broke a rocker. At least that’s all they said. I know there is more as it would have bent a valve and cam damage. Currently fighting with gm as I want a new motor! They are trying to just replace A couple rods, two rockers and valve springs.
  2. I just bought a 15 with 35,000 miles. Didn’t even have it a week and heard a lifter tapping yesterday on my way to work. On the way my check engine lite came on and the tapping turned into a knocking. I called the Gm dealership where I bought it and they came and towed it and looked it over while I was at work. Got a call back end of the day and a lifter stuck bent a push rod and broke a rocker arm. Pretty sure it bent a valve as well. The tech told me a bulletin just came out for this issue. There was another 15 there with the same problem. I never had a programmer or anything else. Completely stock. Don’t know if this will help you or not but I would definitely get it checked out!
