The 2007 Vortec Max is generally a dependable motor and while there are known issues, they don’t occur frequently. However, I’ll go over some of the common problems for you here.

used in some trucks from 2002 to 2009. Some common Vortec Max problems include:

  • Knock sensor failure
  • Exhaust manifold leaks
