IWell, I left the Ford camp and purchased a new 22 burb last July, love the truck. This forum is great for all info related to our vehicles. Is there a mileage range when this lifter failure occurs? Reading the lifter related threads is seems mileage is all over the board. I only have 3600 miles but every time drive mine I find myself waiting for the boom.
nought my 2015 from a Cadillac dealer that owned it as company car for 5 yearsIts not common. This forum is dead. There is a handful of active posts about it .
If it was even remotely common there would be a recall.
They tried to push “ Warranty” for I think it was $3000… we said no thanks after a 5 minute ride and a week or two later I was on a deserted road and decided to “ Wind it Up for the First time. I left shift lever in normal drive to let it up shift on its own, and at about 5000 it upshifted and POPED a smal backfire Sound and was limping !
Engine light came on- I stopped , turned it off for a few minutes started up and it ran just fine although it always Stuttered and hunted for the v-4 .. so I put a range DOD eliminator on it …. So a month later I decided to run it Up thru the gears and It Popped again engine light came on and it never healed. The selling dealer said Sorry you bought As Is….. I knew I wanted to get rid of the Lifter DOD but Chevy dealer said No, local repair shops said get a junkyard engine… I had it towed 150 miles to a Chevy Thner / Hot Rod shop who put Texas speed cam and new Chevy lifters ?(ls7?)
It runs Great they Dyno tuned it perfect
$3000 !!! Same as warranty cost !!!
