1996 Chevrolet 1500 PickupVisitor, Otterbein, IN, May 02, 2013 16:57I bought my 1996 Chevy Silverado new in February of 1996. It has the 5.0 liter engine in it. 215,000 miles on it now and the engine still run great. Had to replace the intake manifold gasket at 187,000 miles. Made several trips to the west coast, golf coast and east coast. Other than the one problem, that's it. Going for 300,000 or 25 years whichever comes first. Then we will go from there.
1996 Chevrolet 1500 PickupVisitor, Clinton, OK, November 11, 2011 09:51My dad has a 96 Chevy 1500 Silverado 4X4 with a 350 Vortec stepside pick up, He bought it new at a Sheriff sale when they orderd new equipment to replace the older trucks. Then a cut back less officers so he bought one of those With out the lights. Gave $12,000 less than a Chevy dealer. These trucks are Awesome This truck I guess has a super chip in it or something. He has used this truck for everything from pulling people out of a ditch or it is seen on u tube where he drove out in the lake to retreve a Dodge 4X4 that was hung up in the mud and sand where a drunk guy missed the road. This was a sight to see. As well as a trip in Colorado going places where no one could make it. Then for fun when someone would say how great their newer truck they have and it was tougher than his. He would do the Chain test where they would tie a chain on both and see who could drag the other. Again on U tube where he drug a 2010 dodge diesel 4X4 a block and pulling it hard enough where its front wheels came off the blacktop. This was done when it had 790,000 miles on it. he changes the oil and all filters when it needs it, uses the same Quakerstate 5 30 Besides a tune up every year the only thing he had to replace was a water pump and 4 fuel pumps and Last month with almost a million miles on it, he rebuilt a new motor himself. And installed it. It is still the same it can do everything as it always could Last year he decided to rebuild a nother motor for it and done this his self. He is good at it. And you know This is the only truck that I have ever seen smoke all four wheels taking off. Never seen it before. This week he is going to go buy another one at the same place he bought this one. And he will not sell it to me. It still looks like it is brand New truck not a scratch or dent on it. inside or out. They say Fords are Tough Naha Chevys are tough Ford the only thing tough is the ride you get out of it and having them in the shop all the time Tough on the Wallet.
