2009 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 242015

Avalanche Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,250 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Truck started to backfire for about 15 minutes, then service stabilitrack light came on, engine light came on steady, major power loss, I could only go about 30 MPH. when I got to the chevy dealer, he said there were no re-calls on this issue, they found cylinder one lifter collapsed and replaced all 16 lifters.

I had a 250.000 mile drivetrain warrantee from Miracle Toyota where I purchased the vehicle, but they would not honor it because one of my oil change intervals was over 3,000 miles, my vehicle onboard computer tells me when to change my oil.

the work was completed, I drove it for three weeks and the vehicle went into storage until the following April.
