BEWARE OF PISTON SLAP
By jack, ashton on

Vehicle

2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Review

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 DEFECTIVE ENGINE.

Best Features

strong motor, when pistons are not banging against cylinder walls

Worst Features

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.
