Hey folks. My name is Chris and I'm from Fort Collins, Colorado right along the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Earlier today I was given a new work truck, which, I believe, is a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4x2 with the six-cylinder engine. I'll be perfectly honest and let you know that I know almost nothing about this family of trucks, or GM in general as I've always been a Mopar guy. I've always liked GM, just never drove any until now. From what little research I've done so far, I think the truck has a "4.3L Ecotec V6." While my truck only has about 21,000 miles on it, it's currently in pretty rough shape. The employee that had it before myself really did not do that truck any favors. I on the other hand am very particular about vehicles I drive which is why I'm here. I received the truck absolutely filthy which will be remedied when I have it steam cleaned and detailed. The top of the tailgate has a dent in it and somehow the passenger side view mirror glass got shattered. A few questions to get me started... Is there anything I should be aware of as far as special info regarding the engine and transmission in this truck? I tried to read the owner's manual except apparently that got thrown out before I got it. So, maintenance schedules are a bit of a mystery at the moment. I'm thinking I should convert it over to fully-synthetic motor oil as I've always run in my other vehicles. I'll change the air filter as well as take a look at the condition of the brake and power steering fluids. I don't know if this line of engines accept both a standard duty and heavy duty/high capacity oil filter, but I'm happy to swap it to heavy duty/high capacity and whatever brand you all feel works best. Is there anything I should be sure and have checked out on the truck, despite it being fairly new? I'd eventually like to replace the busted mirror glass but that's a superficial problem at the moment. Thanks in advance for your wisdom!
