1997 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


Third GM with intake manifold leaks. 1
4.3, and 2, 5.7 vortecs. GM knows this
problem exists. ASK ANY DEALER. Sun
Crashes dashes. Two water pumps, one on
4.3with 47000 miles, one on 5.7 with 50M
Rattles in dash. Gas mileage on 5.7 is
excessive. New tune up may get 15...
Heater hoses are poor

Best Features

Powerful in all engines. Grillwork is beautiful. Appearance is not an issue. Have 5 GM's but beginning to think about TOYs and Nissan. Watch out when they increase engine size (torque).

Worst Features

Put more than 8 bolts in the INTAKE MANIFOLD!!!! Do something with those quick disconnect heater hoses corroding.
