1997 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series K3500 Silverado 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB
I have the 6.5 Turbo Diesel motor
which I absolutely love...when it
runs! I can't stand it when it
doesn't run or is having mechanical
problems, which seems to be most of
the time anymore. I've had
overheating problems when I'm towing
in the summer, fuel injection pump has
been replaced ($1500), also had to
replace lift pump, oil pressure switch
3 times, and pmd module twice. But,
once you get her running right it's
hard to beat it's performance and mpg!
Diesel fuel economy, huge crew cab
interior (room for me, my wife and all
3 kids!) High Chevrolet build quality
and great fit and finish/workmanship
Wish I would have waited for the
Duramax diesel. The 6.5 would be a
great motor if Chevrolet could get all
the bugs out of them!
