Any Silverado 1500s with the 5.3L or 6.2L manufactured in 2022 had lifter issues?

Ok here we go one more lifter question, according to some fan members  on this forum there is no lifter problem with those engines . It’s all in your head .

The big portion of lifter issues was a select production window from September 2020 to March 2021.  This was the known window of manufacturer issues with the AFM/DFM lifters.

 

Some 2022 LTD and all 4x4 2022.5 trucks with the 5.3 have DFM disabled still EXCEPT for NHT Max Trailer Package trucks due to the chip shortage.

I'm a heavy line tech at a chevrolet dealer and I can 100% tell you that the 22's have lifter concerns as well. (personal experience)

What trim?  I know most all LT and some LTZ have it disabled.  All NHT its functional.  Not sure on High Country, it might be enabled on those.  

 

Refresh 2022 all 4x4 5.3 lose DFM.  2wd and NHT keep it.  All trim levels.

Both were 5.3L 4x4 High Country. The first had everything installed & working, current one came without Auto stop (no retrofit) & Park assist not enabled w/ later retrofit. Both have/had DFM, still undecided about a Pulsar LT or an Autosync to get rid of the DFM

Engines are built at Tonawanda, NY, regardless of where the truck is assembled.

This explains why the engines keep on blowing up , they are built in NY by democrats.

You know the tonawanda plant has been assembling engines for GM since 1938, right?  Politics aside, as much as i really hate liberals, that does not mean politics involve issues with engines due to an issue involving part sourcing.   They assemble the engines with the parts they are provided.  The issue has been the parts they have been sourced.  If there was an issue with the liberals assembling our engines for us, it would have popped up since 1938 already.  But here i am talking to a wall again.  Can only provide so many facts before you go "but muh dodge" when they have the same lifter issue.

With engine components sourced from China, India and Mexico.  
 

Waiting for GM’s next $50 billion taxpayer funded bailout.

Actually not true. Engine components are sourced and machined in factories in ohio, michigan, and new york.   Looking at ac delco oem engine parts, i have only seen USA made components.  Only parts made in mexico are hoses belts etc.
