Hey y'all, having issues with my 2015 Silverado. Towards the end of a 300+ mile road trip my truck's engine shut off while stopped at the turnoff of an exit. I restarted it drove to a gas station and then started it again to go home with no more issues. In the morning I had a hard start then drove to my job site and while I was waiting to go in parked in my parking spot the engine shut off again so I restarted it again. It ran about 5 minutes then shut off again. When i went to restart it my check engine light popped on, dash reads reduced engine power, and it will crank not start. I popped on my code reader and I am showing three codes p1682, p0650, and p062b. I have 113k miles. Does anyone have any ideas????

I got a 2015 Silverado 5.3l. 138,250km. started ticking sometime last winter. Would happen instantly at start up and last about 5 minutes then would fade away. Sounded like a lifter. Took it to the dealer they said they couldn't hear it. Sound went away so left it.
Fast forward to this winter and as Soon as the weather started to cool down I noticed the ticking again.
Took it back to the dealer said they couldn't hear it again. I went and picked up my truck right at closing, soon as I fired her up the sound was there but everyone was gone so no one to hear it. I took a video. Next day I called the dealer, sent the video. Took like a week to get back to me. In the meantime I had taken videos pretty much every time I started it.
Long story short after a brief fight with them about them trying to say it's normal etc they agreed that it sounded like a noise coming from the valve train. Left my truck with them, they called me said they had to change all lifters. Went to pick up my truck and on start up the sound is still there.
This was a month ago. Sent more videos and a previous video from before they did the work and they are saying they can't hear it again.
Took it in in person they agreed that there's an issue again and they will look at it. Now they are saying it's possible bad injector noise but they can't figure out which one 🙄.
In the meantime I took it to another dealership they changed the vacuum pump. After that the sound changed. Now it's no longer at start up but once the truck has reached operating temperature and is more of a dull sound. Took it back to that same dealer who did the vacuum pump and they said valve train noise and deffo not injectors. But they won't work on it because the other dealer already did.
They didn't change the VLOM or the cam. I had/have no check engine lights. Truck runs awesome. Sometimes rough idle.
Any ideas what it could be?

Hi and thanks to take the time to read my story.
I just bought a Silverado 1500 6 cil. Mod. 2007
Everything works great except the gearbox make the trrrrrr noise when I engage the third shift. All other works great.
I also feel that the clutch is a bit hard to press... I need more muscle or it's normal.
The first and the reverse engage without trouble.
Tomorrow I will check the oil inside the transmission.
Thanks for your help....
Well guys, I finally broke 30,000 miles yesterday. It has been an amazing experience so far and I am very blessed to own this truck.
I special ordered my LT Trail Boss back in May 2018 and picked it up in September 2018. I have almost every option that you can order on it except the sunroof (would have delayed my production at the time). My truck was built the very first week of production (7/09/2018) and is one of only a small handful of Red Silverados, if not the only one, to receive the Gideon/Dark Atmosphere leather interior as that color was changed to not an option for Red Silverados on the second week of production. Within the first week or two of receiving it, I installed a custom Electronic Cutout System for my exhaust, Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ 33.5x12.5R20 mud tires, an Undercover Ultra Flex tonneau cover, and vinyl wrapped the scoop portion of my hood. Later on, I installed some cosmetic hood vents. Then, about two weeks ago, I installed the Trail Boss / AT4 specific ReadyLift +2” lift kit, giving me a total of 4” inches of lift. This allowed me to run 35x12.5s and I am loving the new taller stance of my truck more and more every day.
I have driven my Trail Boss all over the place, in a wide variety of conditions and never had any major issues. From -15 degree weather to over 100 degrees, this truck has performed excellent. The only two problems I have ever had (which are resolved) was a Bluetooth sync issue very early on for a few months and a random, once-in-a-blue-moon appearance of the ESC light only to have it go away at next start up. Both of these issues have been long gone now and I couldn’t be happier with the truck. If I had to make a list of my favorite options, it would be the Trail Boss trim level, Safety Package I, and Convenience Package II. In my opinion, the Trail Boss trim gives this Silverado a unique look and a tough image. The blacked-out appearance along with the “Trail Boss” name just emphasizes that this is one bad truck (in a good way). The Safety Package I has saved my skin so many times and in my opinion it is a must have. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert gives you advanced warning of vehicles/pedestrians that may cross your path as you reverse, and the Side Blind Spot detectors are a huge plus in giving you peace of mind when making a lane change. Furthermore, the Convenience Package II adds some nice creature comforts that I can’t really live without. The Bose stereo w/ subwoofer hits loud and crystal clear. The rear sliding window provides nice airflow in the summer months and the garage door HomeLink buttons are a nice touch. The one thing that I do not have because it was not available in 2019 on the Trail Boss is the 6.2 L. This is now an option for 2020 Trail Boss trims, and I am kind of upset that it wasn’t offered in 2019. I would not trade in my truck over this, but I really wanted the bigger motor. That being said, the 5.3 L in this new gen T1 truck is much quicker and more responsive than the 2018 and prior trucks. It may have to do with the weigh savings this new gen truck has, in addition to the new Dynamic Fuel Management system, which is seamless and unnoticeable. Whatever the reason, this truck has a lot of pep, even in 5.3 L form. Overall, I am very happy with this truck and the way it has performed, and I look forward to another 30,000 miles. Any questions just ask.
Disclaimer: No one pressured me to write this review, nor did GM have any contact with me about it. This is my honest opinion on how I feel about the truck and I hope this review helps anyone thinking about buying one to make the right decision for them.
