    I'll look into this. I would have expected them to say something to me about it if no more monitoring was needed. Hopefully I got one of the good motors.

    Just had my 08 Silverado in for servicing and documenting the oil consumption. Now the dealer tells me that a quart of oil consumption for every 2 thousand miles is within specs for this motor. They...

    The oil consumption issue is confined to the 2007-2010 5.3L motors as far I can tell. I've heard they made all the changes to the motors starting with the 2011 models and haven't heard of anyone with...

    I think I'm just going to dump my 08. The oil consumption is getting worse with each check and from the sound of it they may take forever fixing it. I might think differently if it wasn't my daily...

    This struck me as a little odd.. I got call yesterday (Sunday, dealership is closed) from the dealer I took my truck to for service. The person said they noticed I had been in for service the...

    Just had mine into the dealer.. again this morning. 65328 miles on it and this is the third time for oil consumption. I guess I'm lucky on this visit. Only 2 quarts low and not completely void of oil...

    I couldn't find any menu option using any button in my truck. I think my only option for turning it off is a tuner or custom tune.

    Is it that button by the guages that looks like the old button for the trip meter? I just noticed mine had this the other day. I've had this truck for a little over a year now. I was cleaning the...

    Guess I spoke too soon about not having a problem. I just checked the oil level this morning. It's been 400 miles since the dealer checked it and I am 1 quart low. Guess I will be taking it back to...

    I had mine checked at the dealer the other day. I have 63K miles on it now and it checked out fine when I brought it in. They want to continue to monitor it a few more times. I haven't had any smoke...

    No smoke. The only sign of anything wrong was the loud ticking noise. That caused me to check the oil and I am glad that I did. My daily commute is 120 miles so without oil my engine could have...

    It's been ~1500 miles and the dealer changed the oil. I'm taking it in tomorrow for them to check it. When I called them today they said it would take a half hour or so since it would need to cool...

    Louis; I will do that. I have to take it in this week to have it checked. For the others reading this, when you took it in to have the oil consumption measured, did they actually measure how much...

    I'm just now having this same problem. I got an 08 Z71 with just under 63K miles on it. I drove my daughter to work and when I was dropping her off as she opened her door I heard this loud ticking...

    Weak Alternator?

    I recently traded my 04 Silverado in a slightly used 08. I haven't had too many issues other than a noisy windshield which was fixed and a blown front driver side speaker. I've noticed recently when...

    I recently traded in my 04 for an 08 and have this same problem. Mine sounds like the roof of the cab is going to come off. I'll have to call my dealer and set up an appointment to get this fixed. I...
  17. Anyone Have Issues With Weather Stripping?

    I have a 2004 Z71 Extended Cab Silverado. I live in northern MD and ever since we had that hurricane blow through here in mid summer I have had an issue with moisture in the cab. During the storm I...

    I just got the dreaded "Service 4WD" message and I can't shift into 4WD Lo. Which I guess is better than being unable to shift out of 4WD Lo. I had this problem once before and they reprogrammed it...

    I live in MD and lately it has done nothing but rain. I am almost certain that my actuator for the blend door is shot because of the misdirected air both for the A/C and heat. I know some on here...
  20. Would A Open Blend Door Allow Moisture In Cabin?

    I know I have a problem with the blend door since when I put the A/C on to blow only out the lower vents it also blows out the vents up by the windshield and fogs it up. Also when I turn the fan...

    I feel your pain. I had to take my tire off, remove the splash shield from the inner fender and basically crawl into the cavity from under neath. I also had to remove the splash shield from the A/C...

    My eyes!!! They are burning!!! Guess the engineers designed this one in the dark or just on a Tuesday before lunch. I can imagine the conversation. "We'll copy the Toyota rear section and mate it to...

    I wonder if this is a common problem with GM systems. I was just sitting in the parking lot today with the A/C on. I don't normally do that and I noticed the A/C pulsating between sort of cold air...

    I think I've figured it out.. Today I have water all along the bottom of the drivers and passengers door. The water is seeping into the carpet because what looks like the plastic shields between the...

    We have been having a lot of rain in this area for the past couple of weeks. Everything from short heavy down pours to long steady rain storms. When I am driving my truck nothing is leaking and I...
