Apparently the active fuel management lifters in the GM 5.3 liter V8 are a VERY common problem. Good job creating this awesome video and explaining all the details.

Joseph Randazzo says:

How do you know that the oil solenoid wasnt bad hence causing the lifter to stay collapsed?Thanks

Chris Jumper says:

Really enjoyed your video. Taught me a lot. Not sure it is my lifter yet. I have a 2014 Yukon XL 5.3L V8 SLT. I have a misfire on the 7th cylinder so I replaced all the spark plugs and wires and coil on the 7th cylinder and that made it run a little better for a while and then it had another misfire on the 7th cylinder again after driving it for a while. I don't have the tool to check the compression yet in the 7th cylinder. What are your thoughts on my problem?Is there a way to drain the antifreeze so you don't get it all over the cylinder heads?
