Is there a recall on the 2000 5.3 engine due to piston slap?

Answer . \nEach cylinder has it's own ignition coil on the 5.3. The coil is mounted on the valve cover in line with the spark plug and wire for each cylinder. Voltage ultim…ately comes to the coils from the PCM through the cam shaft timing sensor.
Answer . There is a real nice yet little known test for piston slap I'll pass along. Some test results can be mixed or ambiguous but this one is 100% and I've never seen i…t wrong after using it for the last 10 years. . When the engine is cold, the aluminum piston is small in comparison to it's iron cylinder. Therefore the rather hollow slapping noise will be loudest first thing in the morning. After the engine warms up, the aluminum piston heats up faster than it's iron cylinder, cutting down on the excessive clearance between the piston and cylinder wall. . So, the test is this: . First thing in the morning, start the engine up and run it for 15 seconds while you listen carefully and memorize the sound and it's intensity. Shut it down quickly, pull the spark plugs and put two squirts of motor oil into each cylinder. Reinstall the plugs, fire the engine up again and listen. . If you have piston slap the noise will have been greatly reduced or even eliminatedâ¦..for 15 or 20 seconds that is, and then your nightmare noise will come back like a Marine Corps marching band coming toward you in the parade. .

No, the LS2 is an all aluminum 6.0 liter engine.. The 5.3L engine in the 2000 Silverado is an LM7 version of the Vortec 5300.
yes you can but you might have to change your intake.

piston slap is when the piston inside the cylinder is somewhat smaller than the cylinder bore. when the piston moves up and down, it ends up moving side to side too. this caus…es a knocking/slapping sound as the piston slams into the cylinder walls. this can cause harm if the play between the piston and bore are significant, otherwise it's nothing to worry about. if the car is hammering you might want to take it to a garage. Piston slap is the piston lose is the cylinder and it is making a rattling noise. Hope this helps.
The Only Way Is To put Z rated tires, Take of The Speed the Speed Limiter (With a Tune) ,And Give It A Go!
The only way to fix piston slap is to replace them. Some oiladditives will quiet them down some, there are several brandsavailable.
follow the upper radiator hose it would be right at the end of that

In the case of a single cylinder engine it would require a LARGE flywheel, so that rotary momentum is maintained. In the case of a multi-cylinder engine there are multiple fir…ings of individual cylinders in 360 degrees of crankshaft rotation. Each cylinder as it fires helps the crankshaft maintain rotary momentum, thus a lighter flywheel is required.

Set of 8 (eight) hydraulic lifters, $155, labor 6 hours@$75/hr= $605. There will probably more costs, intake manifold gasket, valvecover gasket, and most shops and dealers add… a surcharge forhazardous material disposal i.e. lost fluids during job, and costof fluid(s) needed to replace what was lost. Best estimate is $700shop, $1200 Dealer
