So the knocking started immediately after picking it up from the dealership?

If that is the case, I would get GM involved. Even if you're out of warranty, they may be able to help out since the repair may have caused the issue.

No... No its not lol. It would be cheaper to buy a supra. GL with that motor swap. Some people here have tried swapping in a GM motor and still couldnt get it to start.

The factory fill should actually run in the engine for a little bit before switching to synthetic. Synthetic oil doesn't allow for a good initial wear-in during the break-in period. I usually change from the factory fill to synthetic around 1,000 miles.

Lol you guys need to read
I am keeping the Camaro
The motor did let go and I am waiting on GM to get back to me
I am looking at E92 M3s C63 Coupes and possibly other cars to buy now as my new DD while I still KEEP the 2010 lol

I honestly would buy a 16 2SS but if GM wont do anything to help me out then why would I spend another dollar on GM

I got my fanboy car, it let me down in terms of reliability,but I still have it. My future cars from here on out will be based on performance reliabilty and value and at this current time, GM has alot of competition
