You need to keep your gas tank between 1/4 and 3/4 full. No more and no less. Then simply drive normally for about 1 week. The readiness monitors should be set by then. Since your Silverado is an '01 model it will pass, under Federal Law, with 1, but only 1, readiness monitor not set. Doesn't matter which one isn't set. As long as all the others are set, you'll pass. HTH. -Jim
