[xxx][mailto:[xxx]] to: Safe car. Gov subject: Fire hazard 2007 Chevy Colorado to whom it may concern: I own a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado pick-up truck, with 86,000 miles. Recently I noticed a gasoline smell coming from under the vechicle. Upon inspection, I observed a stream of gas spraying from the metal elbow coming off the top of the fuel pump assembly, which connects to the fuel line. After removing the gas tank, I saw the entire top of the fuel pump assembly was badly rusted. To me, this is an extreme fire hazard caused by premature rusting of the top of the fuel pump assembly. I feel this is something that should be looked into given the seriousness of the matter. Thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Starting in 2014, the vehicle had widely spaced and random issues of not starting, but would start fine after an undetermined amount of time. At the time, I did not know that it was related to the pass lock system which will not allow a restart for a period of approximately 10 minutes. In the past month, I have had this problem approximately 12 or more times and finally found out that it was caused by the pass lock system. This condition is very dangerous because if the truck is shut off to save fuel in a traffic jam, or at a traffic accident, etc, it may not restart when the road then becomes open, leaving you stranded in a traffic lane. Because the problem is totally intermittent, you can't troubleshoot it because by the time you try to find out what is wrong, there is nothing wrong and it will restart fine. The problem can be in the ignition module (icm), the body control module (BCM) or a connector or wiring at any point in between as well as some other remote possibilities. This problem has caused me to late almost every time it has happened. The only solution offered by the dealership is replacing parts piecemeal starting at the cheapest and working up which can lead to expenses over $1000 and will still not guarantee the problem is fixed.

Truck will not start for ten minutes due to faulty passlock. This system does not work and GM should fix it asap. GM acts as if they have never seen this problem. This has happened almost daily and once it happened three times in one day.
