Thread: What next?

  1. #1

    Default What next?



    So after listening to much advice from you and my mechanic I purchased a 5.3 long block from the dealer. Came with a 3 yr/100,000 warranty. My mechanic (20 yr friend) removed and examined parts from my AFM failed 5.3 before deciding if they were fit to go on the new engine. He got the engine in yesterday and was hooking everything up. When he removed the plastic cap from the oil pan to insert the oil level sensor module this is what he found! Still cast and not drilled or tapped! Pooched for the weekend as have to wait till. Monday morning to speak with GM. Don't want to void the warranty.

    Man that would be pretty frustrating!!!! That would kinda suck to have to drill out and tap making sure no filings get down in there. I would hope that they do something for you since the engine is installed already. If you decide to drill it out and tap it maybe a shop vac right there as you do it. Or how easily does the pan come off of these trucks? Or is that a lot of work? Thats a case of an attention to detail being overlooked that is really frustrating for the end customer. Let us know how you make out.
