General Motors V8 Engine Valve Lifter Lawsuit Claims Recall Is Needed
It appears that news is spreading about a class action law suit that has started in regards to engine valve lifters and engine fuel management design. This affects many 2014-present models of 5.3, 6.0 and 6.2 equipped vehicles.
Yoikes … I have 3 of them in my stable. One which I got in 2019 to replace a 2015 Sierra with a 5.3 that had the engine fail on at least 2 cylinders. I was not privy to the details of the repair when a dealer stepped up to get me into a new 2019 Sierra with a 6.2 as the repair was going to take at least 8 weeks for parts (GM labor strike at the time). Now I am wondering if I experienced one of these failures that GM told me was an anomaly event.
As this involves every C7 Corvette, I thought it best to post. You can google “GM lifter class action” and get a GM Authority webpage and a report/posting on the Corvette Blogger … among others.
Will be warching for how this unfolds.
Here’s a clip from GM Autoroty …
“This class-action lawsuit includes vehicles equipped with either the EcoTec3 GM 5.3L or 6.2L V8 engines, or the older 6.0L Vortec V8. This lawsuit also includes vehicles equipped with the performance-oriented 6.2L LT1 V8 engine in the sixth-generation Camaro and C7 Corvette Stingray, along with the supercharged 6.2L LT4 V8 in the 2016 to 2019 model year Cadillac CTS-V.”
