Not getting enough oil to engine...bad oil pump design...after 130000 miles! It will cost you 3000 in repairs.

Review

I have owned approximately 10 Chevy trucks (8 trucks, 1 Suburban, 1 Tahoe) for 25 years and have put 200,000 miles on several of them. I currently have a 2008 Silverado with the 5.3 liter with Active Fuel Management. That engine is CRAP. I love the truck but the engine went sour at about 150,000 miles. First a Lifter failed in cylinder 6. Spent almost $2000 on repairs. Now cylinder 6 has 40 psi pressure and the dealership says the whole engine has to be replaced. Never again, GM.... Never again.

Review

I have to many issues.
@ 40,000 miles went through a set of lower ball joints, 45,000 ran out of oil, 55,000 lost a bearing in the font end. GM made me pay $100 for the ball joints.
GM replaced deflector plate to prevent from running oil, GM replaced the bearing.
I have stock wheel and tires nothing special.
Now have 80'000 and going through oil again, the passenger window does not go down.
The dealer put on a oil consumption plan and last time over 900 miles it went through 2 quarts.
I'm thinking about calling GM, does any one have any suggestions or ideas.
My truck is almost paid off and I don't really want to start over.


Best Features

I really think the truck is very comfortable and enjoy driving it. But with the issues I'm not happy. I have owned several GM's in my life and always been a Chevy guy, but that has changed. Maybe need to look @ forgein truck or maybe a dodge. My wife had a arcadia and it was the same year as my truck and had tons of issues with that also. I hope GM can make this right, hope I can get some feedback on what to do.
