Re: Do most dealerships do tune up's with their used vehicle

Postby Z15 » Mar 31 2015, 6:46pm

My neighbor down the street has a 2006 Silverado K3500 D/A that only has 40,000 miles. He told me the other day he put on only 1,000 miles in the last year. He and his wife have 3 other vehicles, 2 jeeps (1 new SUV) and a Cadi. He wants to sell the Silverado.

I would buy the truck but he wants a lot for it.

I would but the truck but he expects to get way above book for it.


That's exactly why i think mine was purchased for a specific hauling task since it was custom ordered with the 5.3, Towing Package, and 3.73 gears and no 4WD while everything else was so basic.

The F*** dealer I bought my truck from changed the plugs, wires and belts on it and of course there was new oil in it. It is an 02 and it had 83,000 miles on it so it probably needed them changed. With the low miles on yours I seriously doubt they did anything but change the oil.

The notion that there is debris in the housing is so 1960's, the manufacturers have cleaned up their processes to the point you get very little loose stuff and what you do get clings to the magnet and is held in a safe place. That said I never saw a axle, transfer case or anything else wear out from over maintenance so if you feel better change everything.



May I challenge that assumption a little? My 2013 1500 as an example. I am one of those that do the early lube changes in the drivetrain. Could never really justify it, but it made me feel good. Now with the 2013 1500, I did the changes. the transfer case fluid looked like something from my septic tank, and the magnetic drain plug had enough metal shavings on it that it looked like someone had stuck my cat's tail in a light socket. And that was at 3000 miles. Changed the fluid, ran it another 5000 miles and changed again to ease my mind. This time, the fluid was normal and the magnetic plug had very little on it. So, the initial wear metal idea was a definitive factor and the change was justified. Either way, it cemented the idea in me that on all vehicles, new or used, I purchase will get total drive train lube changes right away. Getting ready to do my 2015 2500 in then near future. It just turned over 1400 miles.

So i checked the magnetic plug on my rear end during the week and there wasn't a whole lot of metal shavings on it just a layer of grease that included some metal shavings.

It looks like it should be fine to go ahead and wait to change.

I pulled one of the spark plugs out today and it looks pretty rough and is rusted. I know spark plugs are supposed to look a little worn out because it's a spark plug. I'm thinking about going ahead and changing them out.

What do you guys think? The burn mark is what worries me. There is also a mark on the top of the plug that makes me think they are factory plugs.
