    I'm not sure how many is a lot for a 3/4 ton truck, but i've got an 03 silverado 2x4 with 186,000 miles and 7500 hours. its been a good truck just not sure how many hours is a lot.

    7500 hours? Your truck has an Hour meter?

    It's probably toast. Trash it. The piston are ready to explode. Those trucks are only rated for 6000 hours.

    If you want, you can mail it to me and scrap it for you. I know a guy.

    yeah i didn't realize P/U's had hour meters but sure enough, it does. 93 chevy..... how did you find out they're only rated for 6,000 hours? its been a great truck for me, replaced a bunch of little stuff but nothing major.

    thats good news countryside, i'd like to get 230k out of my truck, what have you dont for major maintenance on it? so far i've replaced the Idler arm, fuel/water pump, and oil lines.... the only "real major" work done is a new radiator but the place that did that messed up and it had to be done twice but i'm real happy with it, thinking about a tranny flush next and calling it good till something breaks
