How many engine hours on your truck?
Gasser43 posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraHey guys, I just purchased a 2015 Silverado Crew Z71 4x4 at a large dealer in Orlando FL. It only has 8,500 miles on it. The truck looks brand new. I crawled under it checking for excessive off road use and it's immaculate. All the service was done at the same dealer it was sold- 2 oil changes basically. To me it was the perfect used truck to buy. As I was going through the user menu- I noticed the engine hours was unchecked to display, so I checked it and it has 460 hours! I'm very concerned with this as it seems extremely high for a truck with 8500 miles. Not sure if the dealer knew this and intentionally unchecked the engine hours to appear or if they come that way but would anyone be kind enough to share how many hours/miles are on their truck? I"m concerned as I bought this truck hoping to keep for years and years and now I'm wondering with so many idle hours if the engine, coolant system, etc. will be short lived? Thank you very much for your help, Brendon
I recently became acknowledged about the myth of the 3,000 mile oil change on newer vehicles with advanced oil. I own a 2006 silverado 2500 v8 6L WT and I change my oil every 5k miles with Mobil synthetic 5w-30. I cannot seem to find the exact information within my car manual or my Haynes/Chilton manual for the recommended interval between oil changes. Is there anywhere I can look up how often I can change my oil with the specific engine of within my truck? I have heard some oils can go 10k+ miles on some vehicles. I'd love to do less oil changes, but don't want to endanger my engine since oil changes are so quick though I'd love to save money too! Where can I find this exact information or do you have any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Hunter1296 posted a topic in 2014 - 2019 Silverado & SierraTook my 2017 Chevy Silverado z71 to the dealer today . Engine was ticking on top end sounded like a lifter tick and slight deeper knock in bottom end . oil presure was all over the place would go from 65 psi to 25 psi at same rpm. I have 44,000 miles. Has anyone else had this issue? With the strike in play who know how long I will be without my truck.
Best miles per gallon?
