About Chevrolet C30

Belonging to long-lasting and exceptional Chevrolet C/K lineup, Chevrolet C30 was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's automobile Chevrolet Division between 1960 and 1986 as a full-size pickup truck. Originally introduced to as a unique part of the C/K lineup, C30 also adopted the Chevrolet's naming convention, which is "C" in its name stands for it was a two-wheel-drive truck and "30" means it had a weight of one ton. But still, after being manufacturer through three generations, C30 along with the whole C/K lineup was replaced by Chevrolet Silverado.
The second-generation Chevrolet C30 was produced from 1967 to 1972 with an increase of comfort and convenience items to change its work from work purpose to civilized use. Equipped with some luxuries like AM/FM radio, better sound insulation, nicer interiors with full carpeting and other amenities, C30 came in six trim levels in succession: Standard, Custom, Custom Deluxe, CST (Custom Sport Truck), Cheyenne and Cheyenne Super. During this generation, C30 was powered by engines varying from 4.1 L V6 to 6.6 L V8 and engines sent power through the 3-speed, 4-speed manual and 2-speed, 3-speed automatic transmissions. The latest C30 debuted in mid-1972 as a 1973 model. And back then, it came in base (standard) Custom, Custom Deluxe, Cheyenne and Silverado trim levels. Its two wheels were driven by engines ranging from 4.1 L V6 to 6.2 L diesel V8 through the 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and manual transmissions.

Chevrolet C30 Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Even though Chevrolet C30 was switched to civilized use, due to its impressive towing and hauling capabilities, many owners still use it for work purpose. After a long-time driving, these common problems will appear on your C30:
First, just as expected, engine failure also becomes the worst reported problem with the Chevrolet C30 by real owners. I assume it has no need to stress how serious the engine failure is and how it could decrease the vehicle's lifespan. But no matter what, you need to learn about symptoms of it and diagnose and solve it as early as possible in case it results in worse consequences. Some experienced C30 drivers offer some recognizable and simple symptoms for you. First of all, you will hear whining or squealing noises from the engine, then visible sign of leaking coolant and oil will be found. Gradually, engine runs roughly, misfires, stalls or even has trouble in starting. And once the cooling system also starts to fail, all symptoms will deteriorate. Therefore, if the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light are triggered, please inspect the fuel pump, fan shroud, intake manifold, spark plug, air filter, oil filter and head gasket immediately.
Second, for Chevrolet C30 drivers, braking failure is also a big headache as they know the braking system could decide if the driving trip will be safe or not. Therefore, the earlier you find this problem and get it solved, the safer your driving will be. Normally speaking, this issue will manifest as noisy and poorly responded brakes, pulsating brake pedal and brake rotors will be covered by score marks. Sometimes, some C30 drivers could also find leaking brake fluid and illuminated Brake Warning Light. And the C30 brake line, brake disc, brake drum, brake caliper and brake booster are often the culprits.
What's more, routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Chevrolet C30 is an effective way to increase your vehicle's lifespan and increase the possibility of enjoying a safe and comfortable driving trip. The first step is to know what parts of your C30 need routine maintenance. Generally, electrical parts are in a high frequency of usage for a long time, therefore, routine maintenance on them is essential. C30 A/C switch, window motor, door jamb switch, and speedometer cable should be maintained regularly.
