We’ve all had occasional issues with our truck. Every now and then, we’re forced to replace a worn-out suspension, a bald tire, a fuel filter that’s functioned far beyond its intended life cycle, just to name a few. But for every truck, there are bugs inherent in the system that could unavoidably force flustered owners to spend money that they never intended on throwing into repairs. Diesel Tech magazine has teamed up with Erik Lind, owner of Left Coast Diesel, in Livermore and Concord, Calif., and his crew to give you the low-down on the possible issues you could inevitably face with your truck and give you information that can help you make a better decision when buying used. Over the next three issues, we’ll explore inherent issues in GMC, Dodge and Ford trucks that you may not have heard about, but will be glad to know. In this feature, we’ll focus on GMC and Chevy trucks, with special interest in their engines.
