    Default 2010 Silverado slight hesitation on accel.

    5.3 V8 with 6-speed auto, 3.42 locking differential, towing package - 4500 miles on odometer.

    When coasting to slow down and then hitting the gas to speed up, there is a consistent 1 to 2 second delay before the engine responds and finally goes. This is annoying and not like my 2003 Silverado that responded nearly instantly, like a fuel injected engine was intended to.

    Took it to the dealer twice and they did the usual computer checks, etc. with no faults. Service manager said "this is normal, my Silverado does the exact same thing". Guess I'll rethink buying a Chevy next time.

    Does anyone have a similar issue and any suggestions for fixing it? Aftermarket chips?

    Thanks.
    Bruce.

    Welcome to the club, Bruce. Its in the computer, a combination of fly-by-wire throttle and traction control. Most of the aftermarket tuners are working on it. Hang in there.

    Thanks, I figured it was by wire, which means it can be changed. Can't wait!

    That hesitation can be removed. I have a 2007 with the 6.0. I recently got a black bear tune. The hesitation was removed, the speed limiter was removed. The truck really performs better and without 8.9 or 9.1 gas. I went with the 8.7 octane tune. The live tune ($250) was great.

    Hello,

    I have the same issue with my truck. It's a 2010 Silverado Z-71 LT Crew Cab with the apperance package, 5.3L engine. It only hesitates when it's warm, after take off from a stop. It's driving me crazy lol. I thought it was bad gas or something.

    My truck has close to 45K miles, it's been great but I would like to know what others are doing to fix the issue, and even gain more performance.Th

    Thank you

    Sounds like its the AFM acting up again...slowing down it usually goes to V4 and once you punch the gas a "slight" hesitation will follow...thats why i disabled it!...feels like a "normal" truck now
