BEWARE OF PISTON SLAP

good overall but, defective engines,
the 4.8, 5.3, 6.0, and more have
defective pistons. go to website, gm
piston slap. on start up sound like
diesel engine, the pistons are banging
up against cylinder walls. gm service
bulletin 01-06-01-028. gm knows the
problem, they WILL NOT FIX, says
banging pistons is normal. lease do not
buy. research the problem before buying.
REMEMBER, GM WILL NOT FIX YOUR
strong motor, when pistons are not
banging against cylinder walls
gm should replace the defective
engines, they have known for years
about the piston problem, and still
sell defective engines. the service
bulletin must have been written by a
lawyer, as they explain that pistons
banging against cylinders are normal.
what a joke.
