chevrolet truck

Chevrolet heavy-duty trucks offer powerful engines, enhanced suspensions, and the capacity to tow over 23,000 pounds. These vehicles are designed to work hard, whether serving at a construction site or hauling the family boat. The 2500 and 3500 models come in a wide range, from a basic work truck to luxurious editions. Chevy's heavy-duty truck line cannot tow yet as much as a Ford Super Duty or Ram 3500, but for Silverado enthusiasts looking for a powerful truck, this is it.

Chevrolet Truck Problems
  • 1999-2007 Chevrolet Silverado if driven in a dusty environment can experience problems from dust entering into the canister vent hose. The dust can cause restricted airflow that can set the code P0446.
  • The Check Engine Light can begin to illuminate when one or both secondary air injection check valves may become restricted causing poor air flow. It is recommended to replace both check valves even if a fault code is set for only one bank of cylinders. Changing only one valve could result in a more trips to the repair shop.
  • Also, Silverado has seen Duramax diesel DPF regeneration changes.
