    Hi guys,

    I have a brand new, 300 miles, LT Crew Cab with the 5.3L v8. I noticed at idle, red light, parked, etc...the truck will vibrate, some times its bad and others its subtle. Is this a known issue with these truck or should I take it in to the dealer to investigate?

    I dont know if the age is relevant or not, but my 99 vibrates at idle as well. Seemed normal to me. I don't remember my 11 doing it, but it could be because your engine isn't broken in yet.

    www.gm-trucks.com/forums - Its normal for the 5.3 as well as piston slap when its cold and a quart of oil consumption with the AFM.

    Thanks, a lot of the research I have been doing shows its normal as well, but its annoying. My 202 F150 used to do the same and in the end I jus ended up getting used to it.:rolleyes:
