Doing some research before you buy is always a good idea! Here are some common GM 6.6 gas problems:
  • Knocking sound
  • Random ticking noise
  • Lifters and valve springs have failed
  • Noise from valves
  • Excessive gas use
That said, some of these problems have easy fixes if you’re comfortable working on cars. Otherwise, it may take a few trips to the mechanic to get your engine up to speed.
