2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 2dr Regular Cab LS Rwd LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
from day 1 chevy denied the steering bang/knocking in the steering box nothing to worry about. at 86900 miles Driver side exhaust manifold bolts broke off in head. I'm having oil pressure problems(25 psi), metal shaving on the oil drain plug, clogged oil filter. Idling a bit rough. low lifter noise. side door trim continues to turn yellow so I painted them all black. Stereo cd broke after 1 year.
plenty of power and load capability, good looking truck.
put the oil pump back where it use to be, and fairly easy to replace and not have to remove the entire front of the engine to get to the oil pump, bad design especially when they go out at 86900 miles.I don't know why the exhaust manifold bolts broke off in the head,only 2 out of 6, front and rear.
