Piston Slap a real bummer
By DaveD on


2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD LS 2dr Regular Cab LB


Have owned only Chevy trucks since
1972. This is the last one. Truck was
great until it lost the oil pump at
about 20,000 miles. No big deal there.
At 25,000 it started to knock when it
was first started up. Actual problem is
the infamous 'piston slap problem'.
Dealer (Sir Walter Chevy in Raleigh)
wouldn't even look at it. They gave me
TSB #01-06-01-028 that basically said
it wasn't a problem and sent me on my
way. Now at 29,000 miles it lasts for 5
minutes on startup. Had to search the
internet to find out there was a
extended warranty on the motor for
free. Meanwhile no one will buy the
piece of junk from me because of the
problem. It's Dodge hemi time.

Best Features

Nice LS package.Nice looking truck. Comfortable.

Worst Features

Should be able to get the leather interior, nd fix the darn engine problem.
