Whole lotta truck!
By Mike Wise on


1997 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series K3500 Silverado 4dr Crew Cab 4WD LB


I have the 6.5 Turbo Diesel motor
which I absolutely love...when it
runs! I can't stand it when it
doesn't run or is having mechanical
problems, which seems to be most of
the time anymore. I've had
overheating problems when I'm towing
in the summer, fuel injection pump has
been replaced ($1500), also had to
replace lift pump, oil pressure switch
3 times, and pmd module twice. But,
once you get her running right it's
hard to beat it's performance and mpg!

Best Features

Diesel fuel economy, huge crew cab interior (room for me, my wife and all 3 kids!) High Chevrolet build quality and great fit and finish/workmanship

Worst Features

Wish I would have waited for the Duramax diesel. The 6.5 would be a great motor if Chevrolet could get all the bugs out of them!
