The exact same thing happened to my 03 silverado
I paid to get it fixed $235 for a new cap and rotor.
4 months latter I got a recall letter .
sent in my reciept got my money back, they wanted me to take my truck in for the recall,
they again replaced cap and rotor then put the foam insulation pad on my A/C hose.
problem fixed .
If you have the reciept you should get $$ back.
#979 of 1497 2002 Chevy Silverado with engine noise from drivers side
Jan 02, 2006 (8:07 am)
I had my 02 Chevy to the dealer for a bad tapping noise from the drivers side of the truck when you first start it up, first they said it was maybe a crack in the block, then a crack in the head finally they told me I had antifreeze in the oil from a warped head, I had the heads machined, spark plugs changed oil changed and everything was ok for a week, now the problem is back not really sure what to do or if I am being told the truth, I had previously had it in for the "piston slap", which they told me was carbon build up and GM doesn't recommend fixing it because it doesn't cause any damage
#980 of 1497 2004 Silverado Trans slipping at start
Jan 02, 2006 (3:57 pm)
I have a "04 Silverado and recently it started to slip when I start out. The engine revs up about 100 rpm and then the trans "catches" It happens about once or twice a week. Have had the fluid changed and problem continues. I also have pulled a boat about 20 times for about 200 miles since I got the truck. Anyone else have similar problems???
#981 of 1497 fuel system contamination 04' silverado
Jan 04, 2006 (10:12 am)
I have an 04' silverado. with 22000 miles the truck started to miss, and the check engine came on. truck still under GM's "two year bumper to bumper the entire vehicle is covered" as it states on gms website. service advisor advises me that the problem is contamination from bad fuel, not covered under warranty. They did a 50/50 split gm paid for the parts I paid for the labor. Asked the service advisor, service manager, and general manager of service, how does contamination get past the factory installed fuel filter? The reply is " I can't explain that". when asked what kind of contamination the reply is a defensive " how am i suppose to know." I feel this should be covered under warranty, but they state bad fuel not covered. they replaced 6 of 8 injectors, fuel pump module which includes the filter flushed the system and charged me 7.9hrs of labor. They stated I could not get my truck back until I paid the bill. When I paid the bill I wrote on the invoice that I am only paying this to get my truck returned. I have spoken the the service manager and general manager about this with no results. I am going to try to speak with the owner, but if that does not work then I will go through chevy. I am currently disputing the charges through my credit card company, they have 30 days to reply after being notified. OH and my truck was returned with 1/3 of a tank and within a week the problem started again. What are your thoughts on this and has anyone else run into this problem. I do not trust the dealership, I feel like i'm getting screwed!

Mine makes a similar sound, but only at 700 rpm and mostly when it is cold. Chevy inspected it and told me nothing was wrong with the transmission or the dirve train. Did you ever hear this noise at low RPM?
#983 of 1497 Ratteling ride!
Jan 04, 2006 (3:32 pm)
I just purchased a 2001 Silverado 1500 Z71 extended cab. The only thing I really don't like about it is that it sounds like a darn lumber truck. Any bump makes the rear extended cab doors rattle. I figure that it is probably more so because it is winter...but it is irritating as all heck.
I sprayed the weather-strippng, which appears to be new. Also, it might be coming from the door panel itself, but it appears to be as tight as possible.
#984 of 1497 Humming, vibrating noise from transmission?
Jan 04, 2006 (3:39 pm)
My recently purchased 2001 Silverado has a humming, vibrating moan that almost sounds like the noise made when you have wet breaks.
It is most prevalent at 700 rpm, and goes away (not completely) after it warms up.
I took it in to the dealership where it has a certified warranty for another 2000 miles, and they blew smoke up my ars. They say they ran all diagnostics on the transmission and drive train that they could, and could not find nothing wrong. Despite the presence of the noise, they call it normal. How can it be normal? I have driven these for years, not my own, but at work. Does this mean that all of the Silverados/Tahoes and Suburbans that don't make this noise are normal? BS!
It only happens in when in gear, and is most loud at a steady 700 RPM. I flushed the transmission, which helped at first, but not much. Now it is back after 500 miles.
I just want to know if anyone knows anything about this, or if it may be a problem down the road. It is 62,000 miles. Anything helps! I want to get it in and fixed ASAP if there is something to worry about.
