  1. Finally some satisfaction, The dealer called me yesterday, said they are going to change the pistons, rings and not sure what else. After the 4th oil consumption test in past 3 years, at 1800 kms down over a liter of oil this test, ( every oil test done engine was consuming oil and they brushed it off as normal, 5-7k oil barely touching dip stick) Is there anything I should get them to change besides this or ask?? 2011 Gmc Sierra SLT 5.3 lt aluminum block have 92,000 km on it. All I can say what a piece of junk.
  2. 2011 Sierra SLT 5.3, same issues as everyone else. Had many oil consumption tests done, so I called GM to complain. They called the dealer to inquire and dealer says falls with in 3200 km guidelines, then between 5-7k oil change barely touching dip stick and getting worse with every oil change. I told the lady I'm not the only one as sites filled with people having same issues. Well they should be telling their dealers the problems, Really? Most dealers brush them off as they did with me saying its normal. I asked her where my oil is going? no reply! There is an issue maybe compensate the people with problems not sweep it under the carpet. So frustrated at this point paying all that money for never ending issues. Then the dealer says come on down we can get you in a new Denali, we just need $40 k and your truck. just makes you laugh. Been a loyal gm guy buying new vehicles every 3-5 years but I'm done with gm.
  3. Oil consumption test

    but how may quarts tor litres has it used to the bottom of the dip stik?
  4. My 2011 Gmc 1500 Slt cc 5.3 Aluminum black, 67,500 kms on it now, (42,000 miles), always used Mobil Synthetic was consuming oil so dealer had a oil consumption test done. First time fell below guidelines and had flow preventer mod done, well truck was still consuming oil after this, so another test was done. Truck was brought in several times and oil level was checked up until the last time at 7700 kms 30% left on oil life monitor. Truck was consuming oil all the time test done, at 3200 kms oil was checked dealer said it calls with in the guidlines no issues but at 7700 kms the oil level was barely touching the dipstick. Dealer says again no issues, are you kidding me? The engine is consuming oil, barely on dipstick says again at 3200 kms its within guidelines. Ok but how about at the end its barely on the dipstick how many litres is that down? Obviously the engine is drinking oil. Called Gm to complain as they called the service manager and he tells them also it falls within the guidelines? at 3200 kms oil is down, at 7700 kms its really down but its within guidelines. I guess if no oil on the dipstick is normal? I'm not very impressed with Gm, what joke as they know its well documented how many Tsb's are there out there on this problem. How many litres is it down if its just barely touching the dipstick, thats not normal I don't care what Gm says. I have and Acura Tl change the oil when the monitor says 15% never has used a drop oil. Not very happy and I know I'm not the only one with this same problem.
  5. I have a 2011 Sierra 1500 Slt 5.3, having oil issues at about 45,000km(@28,000 miles) . Dealer put in a deflector and decarbonized pistons, after next oil change 8700 km @5400 miles oil is down to the 3rd dot on dipstick. dealer said that is about a quart, and said that is within its limits. just wondering down to 3 dot on stick wondering how much oil that really was. ( I wanted to show dealer how much it was down before adding any) Noticed this oil change so far at 2,800 kms down to first dot on dip stick. aluminum block Like This
