Just bought the truck 5 months ago from dealer. Was told safety inspected of course. Just two months after bought it noticed coolant was dissapearing an not a spot on ground. Was adding here an their then recient checked oil an noticed was clean but half inch up dip stick. Ok their is where my coolant is going. So yep ANOTHER blown head gasket. I had a 2000 gmc 5.3 with no issues high miles but never any issues. I get another after i hit a deer with other this one is a 2004 gmc 5.3. So far all the forums on this truck down to the door handles not closing all the way this truck has. After replacing axle shaft seals front . Looks like their leaking so of course its not the seals could i get that lucky as a easy fix. Nope need to replace axle shafts themselves. Im not at all supprised. I wish i still had my 2000 gmc. Great truck for age an miles that damm deer costed me a good running truck an haunted with what next on this 2004. 2001 an up nothing but issues from what i have seen... advice stay away from this year an few years above ..
truck is a 2004 z71 with 101300 miles. ive taken the best care possible, 4000 mile oil changes. tires brakes all services needed, always garaged. ive spent over 3100 dollars in the last month on problems. first the front half shaft bearings started making noise when i would drive slowly on the pavement, then the water pump went out while the dealer was flushing the system. new belts, tuneup, clunk in the front steering shaft[service bulletin] 200 bucks. overall i love the truck but wondering whats next
