2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
Engine knock. The dealer told me it was
a lifter and that is normal to knock
after start up. I took it in a few
weeks ago about the start up knock
again. This time I was given a bulletin
from Chevrolet stating that they are
experiencing this in several engine
sizes. It is a piston slapping the
cylinder that is causing the knock.
Chevrolet says it is harmless and they
are not going to do anything about it
at this time. I've been told they are
issuing 100,000 mi. warranties to those
who continue to complain. This truck is
cheap compared to my 1994 Chevy 1500 I
had. This is my last Chevy PU.
