Chevrolet Silverado Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
However, it is like that there is no perfect thing in the world, so is the Chevrolet Silverado. As the time passes by, some problems in Chevrolet Silverado will arise and among those problems, there are two common problems:
First of all, excessive oil consumption. If you have your Chevrolet Silverado hauled too much and driven too long, and you find that it is consuming more fuel than usual. Then you should check it thoroughly. It is possible that your engine or your cooling system goes wrong. You may need to replace the broken intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, MAP sensor connector or any other parts.
The second one would be the constant noise from the engine. If you can hear the knocking sound from the engine when you are driving and the noise became louder when you accelerate, then you should consider checking your sensor knock, timing belt tensioner or alternator.
Apart from the above problems, in order to keep your Chevrolet Silverado in the best shape, you should also replace some easy-to-wear replacement auto parts such as windshield wiper or wiper blade, door lock, spark plug and so on.
