2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 182011

Silverado LS 5.3L V8 Vortec

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,228 miles


Okay, I have a 2000 chevy Silverado 5.3L V8 with 50,000 miles. I bought it from a previous owner and it had been sitting for a while. After a few weeks of driving it I soon was having to turn it over 5-7 times in order for it to start. Even though it WILL start everytime after you turn it over half a dozen times its just a royal pain in the ASS, also an embarrassment. I have tried to put fuel additives in with every time I fill up for about 3 fill-ups to try and get the gunk out of the fuel lines if their was any but as usual, this has not changed anything. I have read all the other complaints with this truck and I too have inaccurate fuel gauge. And last but not least I too have a "Rough" idle and start. if anyone has a solution with the tough starting hit me with a reply. Seriously.. this is annoying the f*ck out of me and wanting to drive it into a lake/ ravine.

On another subject i have a squeeky belt, all Idid was replace the Serpentine belt tightner its just a plastic circle with a bearing in the middle that was wore and was squeeking there is 2 of these and i replaced both of them. They cost around $18-$20 dollars at NAPA.
