Chevrolet Colorado Engine Misfire Due to Worn Valve Seat

(74 reports)

The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Replacement of the cylinder head may be required to correct this concern.

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. -
Misfires, rough idle, check engine light stays on. -
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 >|??? -
It seems this problem has been going on for sometime my truck only has 43,000 miles on it it should not have worn valve seats with this low milesage General motors should stand behind fixing it my repair shop says it will cost Around $3,000 to fix it.Allen Weatherman -

Idle rough. Misfire on different cylinders -
Misfire on # 3 cylinder replaced heads. -
was replaced in the recall at 60k. has happened again at 130k. -
chevy needs to fix these problems at no cost to us or we should all buy fords -
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 -
