2024G MC AT4X with the 6.2 engine Should I be concerned about potential lifter failures

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm currently considering purchasing a GMC AT4X with the 6.2 engine, and I've heard about potential issues with DFM (Dynamic Fuel Management) lifter failure. Can you provide more information on the reliability of the DFM system in this specific model? Should I be concerned about potential lifter failures, and are there any preventative measures or updates that have been implemented to address this issue? Thank you

Welcome to the forum.


Don't change the oil past 5k miles.  Probably one of the best preventative measures.  AFM and DFM gotta have good and clean oil.  Long drains can be too harsh on the properties of the oil that prevent it from shearing or aerating.  


No parts have changed, same lifters are still in use.  


Lately on 6.2s there are reports of main or rod bearing failures.  Our sister dealer replaced 3 engines in 6.2s that were 2022 model year.  


For future Sierra questions, head over to the Silverado/Sierra forum section rather than the Traverse/Acadia section.
