Hookmaster Posted August 16, 2012 Share Posted August 16, 2012 My 2004 Silverado Z71 (purchased new) now has 134,000 miles on it. It’s in very good shape and I need it to last ~3 more years.Other than maintenance items, the main parts replaced are: front driver’s side hub (bearing went), seal on front passenger drive axel, water pump, encoder motor sensor, fan resistor, main seal from transmission to drive shaft, spark plugs and spark plug wires, intermediate steering shaft and a few instrument clusters.I know parts can fail unpredictively, but are there any parts that should be replaced so I don’t get left on the side of the road on a fishing trip to LOW or duck hunting to North Dakota? Maybe the fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, U-joints??? I know the fuel pressure regulators usually give you some warning but do the fuel pumps also or can they just dump out all at once?
