Summary
On certain pickup trucks equipped with an 8.1L V8 engine, the crankshaft position can operate intermittently or fail completely. If the sensor operates intermittently, the ses light may illuminate and the vehicle may run rough. The engine may stall, and if so, may re-start immediately or after a cool down period.
Actions
Dealers will replace the crankshaft position sensor free of charge. The recall began on December 18, 2007. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463.
