I have a 2002 Chevy Venture LS with the dreaded piston slap. GM has
acknowledged the problem but keeps saying it's normal for this engine which
apparently it is, if piston slap is normal. They have no intentions of
repairing it for anyone I know of.
Anyway, my question to the group is, this noise is getting a bit worse
and I have a chance to trade it in for another vehicle, different make. Has
anyone had this problem long-term and had no real issues with it other than
the noise upon start-up or would the general consensus be to bail while I
could get a good trade? I do like the vehicle other than this problem.
Thanks for your input.
