Got a 2000 Silverado Z71 short box regular cab dark blue with the 4.8. It has a lot of miles 215,000+ but seems to be doing good. Got a great deal on it and it and I needed a truck.

-It shifts clunky but nothing outragous for the miles. Added some Lucas tras treatment with little results.
-The tow/overdrive off button on the shifter no longer works.
-It doesn't like to start on cold days. It turns over freely but doesn't want to start. During warm weather it starts perfectly. Battery checked out ok at autozone.

work done,
- new plugs and wires
- all fluids changed to include
- oil every 3,00 miles
- transmission flush
- both differential fluid change
- coolant flush
- Intake cleaning service at local lube shop
- I cleaned out the throttle body with cleaner and a toothbrush

- Volant CAI
- Magnaflow dual exhast
- Predator tuner
- fix current issues

I also own a 2006 GTO. It is a fair weather toy/DD. I have a PCV catch can, Billet performance shifter, Predator tuner and some other little mods like blacking out the Pontiac emblems and Royal Purple in trans and dif.

welcome to the forum. If I were to have any new "muscle car" it would be the GTO. They sound mean straightpiped. :great:
