2000 Chevrolet Silverado LS 5.3 from North America
I bought this truck from a business, passed down from boss to salesman to me. Lots of highway miles, it was all stock. Ext. cab, very good shape, got it at a low price.
Never had any trouble till this past year, the water pump went out, which is common. Then at one point it got really bad when cranking; it would stumble, I'd let it sit just a minute, and it would clear itself out. Started checking around under the hood, pulled the vacuum line off the fuel regulator - it was full of gas. Replaced it, and it fixed the problem!
I do not take it easy on this truck, I run it up to 100 all the time and shut it down. I have to keep the tires rotated on it because I'm always smoking the rear tires; in fact just got a new set on it.
It has been a good truck, and is still running strong!
Driver's seat is showing wear, key switch is acting up because the key doesn't have many grooves left on it. After 253000 miles, I bet it has been cranked many times over!
American made and it shows. I'm very proud to drive a Chevy! I also have a 96 S10 Blazer, 85 k5 Blazer in very good shape, strong motor! 82 Chevy pickup and an 86 Trans Am - very fast
