While I appreciate your brand loyalty, why should nomore have to accept a knocking engine? I know that you accept that knocking is "normal", but why should nomore have to accept your erroneous perception?
GM needs to address this problem. The sooner - the better for their long term viability as a car(or truck) manufacturer.

Why do you need to post here while crying to your mama about off topic posts in the Tundra topic.
I know you're not stupid enough to think I said any of what you're "quoting" so just what is your purpose here?
You KNOW I'm closer to a Toyota brand loyalist than GM,but unlike you I'm not going to tell people your Tundra is actually a truck.Tundra is the only toyota I don't care for. I consider it to be Toyota's second failure in the full sized market.I also think they'll get it right on the third attempt.

Have your friendly GM dealer do a oil
change. Drive home. Drain oil. Start
motor..Let it idle....When it seizes.
Refill with oil...Call dealer !!!
You are under warranty right ?
I feel your pain I had 2 troublesome
toyotas, 1 pos vette, 1 pos T/A..
Dealers were NO help either.....
Had to bite the bullet on all of them !
But my last 4 GM trucks were great and
I snowplowed and worked em, to death !

Can't do such a thing--too honest. Will not lower myself to GM's standards. Nothing against you, ol' man. I appreciate the advice. Besides, they can tell these days by taking the engine apart and the black-box computer on the cars. That stuff worked good in the 50's.
KG11, I think you're right. I just wish mine would go away in 2 minutes--it doesn't. Kind of a drag, my friend. I hear what you're saying. When it comes to slingin' the BS, GM is King.
Bama/KG, you know I really wish you guys could click (notice I didn't say, knock)--go out for a beer or something--doobie perhaps--little air-guitar. Life's too GD short. Love ya bro's.
#1174 of 1174 Fuel Tank replacement
Jun 03, 2002 (4:53 pm)
Hi, I have the shortbed GMC 2001 Sierra w,8100/Allison. I am thinking about replacing the 26 gal. fuel tank with a 45 gal. tank that mounts on the chassis that Transfer Flow makes. Has anyone gone this route yet with their shortbed and if so how easy or hard was the transition.
