Piston Slap is not normal!

Vehicle

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Review

Overall liked the truck and held up well, with the exception of the engine. At 16,500 it began knocking on start-up and got worse the next few months. I took it to the dealer because I obviously needed a new motor! Well to my surprise the dealer says "they all do that, that is normal" A day of research on the internet, and a couple sleepless nights, I traded it in to a wholesaler before the end of the week. I take very good care of my trucks and expect them to look/act/rune like new, and hold there resale value, but with a gas engine that sounded like a diesel, this one had to go. I bought a Ford.

Best Features

Buckets, console, AutoTrac 4x4

Worst Features

Engines should not knock at 20 months, and 16,500 miles, my 1975 GM with 120,000 was quieter than this truck! GM you have a problem, stand-up and fix it, I would be willing to buy another.
