About 6 months ago my truck started the same misfire problems I've been reading from other owners. I have taken my truck to be looked at,and I was told that it would be around $2500 to $3000 for repairs. It's something when you spend $30.000 for a truck and take very good care of it,inside and out.and the dealer you bought it from tells you.he has had many reports about the same problem.Why is there not a recall put in place for this problem.I am the last person to beat up my truck or drive it like a teenager.This issue needs to be addressed to the manufacture and a recall needs to be put inplace.

So, I just failed my emission test. Said my # 5 cylinder is misfiring. I replaced coil and plug with no change. Now I find out that GM has valve seat problems with this engine. If it is a common problem do you think GM will stand behind their engines and repair them or do I have to pay the total amount >|???

runs rough at startup , slight miss when idling , check engine light comes on. Ran checks on injectors , coil , changed plugs the miss is still there. My mechanic is sure its the valve seat in #5 cylinder. This just happened so its not fixed yet but estimated cost is $3K.

wow sure seems GM has decided to turn its head and not address this very costly problem - 3.5 Inline 5 cyl I had to have the cylinder head rebuilt and it also needed pistons/rings work because it ran too long miss firing. seemed to run fair. I would recommend fixing the trouble as soon as you can and save repairing more on the engine then just the cylinder head. live & learn . Expensive lesson

same problems with the check eng light. Took it to the dealer and they replaced the head for free at around 90K then the same thing is happening within 20K of the work being done to it.

Haven't had it fixed yet. It failed analysis by a transmission repair shop. They reported it is misfiring on #'s 1,2,4 & 5...unbelievable on a well maintained engine with so few miles.
