I'm going to shop for a early 2000's Silverado or Sierra this weekend.

I'm going for the 4.3 or 4.8

What are some of the common problems on these engines?

lets see where do i start, not all these are motor issuses but on my truck with the 4.3, i had the alt go out at 31000 mi. then the washer bottle motor cracked causing it to leak, now my ac has a issue with staying cold. just the driver side does it and i have to reset it by shutting the truck off and restarting it

Mine still runs great. Though, I don't know about anything before I got it, 207xxx miles were put on it before I got it. To my knowledge, my truck hasn't given me any problems. Though, for me, when it sits overnight and I start it, it always squeels a bit for a couple minutes, then goes away after the motor warms up. I think it's this damp/humid weather as well as the coldness added to it that I'm in.
