2002 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

The daytime running lights are prone to burning out. Our technicians tell us that the light sockets may show signs of heat damage but usually are OK. Always be sure to use the correct replacement bulb for the best life expectancy. The new bulb recommendation for 2001-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and possible stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will commonly correct this concern.
