2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 2WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
Truck uses a quart of oil in about
2,200 miles. Used a quart towing a
boat for 450 miles. Truck smokes.
Dealer service dept. said a quart per
1,000 miles is standard. Dealer
service dept. says today a quart per
2,000 is okay and some smoke. I am
embarrashed when I start the truck and
it smokes. Wish I had my 96 Dodge back
that I traded in. Last Chev. truck I
bought rusted down in 3 years. I
should have learned my lesson and not
have bought another one.
Plenty of Power, not bad looking.
Warranty states I have to do an oil
comsumption test. Whatever that is.
Suggest dealer help customer and fix
the truck to stop smoking.
