Just got done putting new spark plugs in after rolling over to 200k. Only problem I have had is washer fluid pump went out. I use this every day pulling a landscape trailer. Runs like a tank and will drive it till the engine blows then will replace the engine and keep on driving it.

262647 on my 02.

Issues:

Radiator Clogged around 200000
put on electric fans when I replaced radiator

Water Pump

Starters (2) over the years

2 sets of shocks (ready for a third)

Rear Rotors Parking brake failure REMEMBER to use the parking brake every once in a while otherwise the U brake shoes shift and tear apart inside of rotor.

Rear Latch (fixed myself) these forums are GREAT

4 sets of tires LUV the REVO

Just replaced my CATS Service Engine Light and code p0420 and p0430

Putting on a CAI this weekend.


Change oil every 3500 Miles It's the best preventive maintenance you can do for the engine....

any one for the 300,000 mile club!!!
 i just got my 1st av and its an 02 2500,  with 302500 miles! i bought it from the original owner. maintained very well and runs and drives like a new truck! no major repairs done. (i have all service records) will be doing shocks and u joints just on principal but im very impressed with the truck.
 with the milage i bought it to do a duramax swap. but am not in any hurry now, as im interested to see how far that 496 will go.. i think ill be doing a few good mods before the duramax goes in, maybe next spring....

Just hit 320,000 miles this week.  Still runs great.  Original drivetrain, except for the transfer case, bottomed out on a big rock a few years ago..... :E:

My '02 Z71 has just over 241k miles and I still abuse her in the back country.   My skid plates tell tales!  I've only had to replace the Cat converters, otherwise normal maint. - tires, brakes, oil . . . Last year the oil pressure gauge started to go - always registering pressure, even when off.  Finally broke a few months ago pulling a trailer out of Yosemite.  Hope to match Stemrt someday!  Just put a new set of tires on this week.

Currently at 187,000. Replaced: brake pads and rear rotors at 104,000, front shocks at 120,000, passenger window motor at 125,000, rear speakers at 135,000, alternator at 145,000, knock sensors at 168,000, O2 upstream at 184,000, O2 downstream at 187,000. Note O2 sensors replaced because of drop in gas mileage never had an error code. After replaceing gas mileage returned to 18-19 (5.3) and engine runs like new. Also on my 3rd set of tires typically get 70-80000 on tires. Also I tow constantly with this truck. Towed from Ohio (6,000 lbs) to Portland, OR. at 183,000 miles, no problems. I have added dual 12 inch electric fans, removed the engine driven cooling fan and also added a trans cooler.

Just about to turn 280,000 on my '03. I've only owned it for about a year, it was a one owner and he took good care of it. I have driven it from Ca to NH twice in the last 6 months, it runs great.

Have 232,000 on mine.  Original owner from June of 04.  Just put a new tranny in it  :D:.  Now for the real problem.  Have replaced the rear diff bearings 3 times and need to do it again.  Anyone else having same problem.  :deadhorse:  Do not want to go to dealer, because can buy a new one for what they want in rebuild. :help:

There's something definately wrong or bent in the housing or someone doesn't know how to install them properly. The bearings should last the life of 3 vehicles. I'd look for a new shop. To install the bearings takes about 2 1/2- 3 hours and a rebuild kit is in the $200.00 price range. No way a rebuild should cost as much as a replacement. What worries me is it's a reoccurring problem. Might be better off to find a good used unit at a salvage yard.

'02   Z71    with 237k on it

I am the original owner (Got it with 24 miles)

The first year I went through 3 engine computers.

Since then normal wear items;  (Oil, brakes, shocks, tires)

Front hubs at 125k

Complete rear axle last week, I do allot of towing for my fireworks company

This is definitely a work truck.  I live in Illinois, have a warehouse in Mich. and a manufacturing facility in PA.

Love this truck!

I do kinda want some of the electronic upgrades from the newer AV's
