Anyone out there have an issue with their 5.3 V8 breaking a valve spring? There is a TSB out on it and I have been on many of the other GM forums. It seems like the problem is overwhelmingly with the 6.2 V8 but there are still a handful of 5.3s with broken valve springs. Just wondering how the 5.3s are holding up on the 2021 Tahoes. Here is a link to that TSB info. https://gmauthority.com/blog/2020/0...dresses-valve-spring-issues-in-gm-v8-engines/
Yes I have a new 2021 Tahoe, purchased 23 Nov 21, at 446 miles, had a broken valve spring, ad collasped lifter, car shut down while driving and had to get it towed to dealer. They replaced both lifter banks ad valve springs. Have about 500 miles on it now. Pretty disappointing, with this purchase.
