The brakes on my truck do not stop the truck in a reasonable distant. When I pulled off the wheels you could see where the pads on the front wheels were almost gone, but the rear shoes were hardly worn. I did change the front pads. I also have the sticking gas pedal problem which I have had the dealer work on with no results.

Silverado 6-cyl

I have two General Motors vehicles. A 2000 Silverado truck and a 97 olds Silhouette. Both of these have V6 engines and now I am being told that both of them have intake manifold leaks. The antifreeze is leaking outside of the intake, and in the case of my truck, probably into the engine. I am being told three different mechanics, that this is a very common problem with the V6. And after voicing my complaint, found that my brother-in law, has had the same problem. I called the General Motors number in the manual and told them that I was upset with the problems and they said that because one is a 97 with 62000 miles, it is two old and that my truck has to many miles (112000). Yet everyone tells me that it is the plastic intake manifolds that GM uses that is the problem.
