Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just got a 5.3 and it had a broken valve
spring replaced it and another one broke all
stock as far as I know. Is this a problem with
the 5.3?

If you broke a valve spring and replaced it and the same spring broke again then I would take a close look at the push rod, valve, rocker arm and possibly the lifter. Is this engine all stock. Are you running it at or above redline?
