2005 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #5

May 012010

Silverado 1500 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,273 miles


I had my fuel pump replaced at a local garage because it was leaking. When I picked up my truck and filled it up the fuel gauge stayed at empty. The mechanic ordered at new fuel pump and replaced it with another new one and still the gauge reads empty. He still had the original pump so he plugged that one back into the harness and the gauge it still reading empty. He has ruled out a faulty pump. What can I do next?

problem #4

Dec 012009

Silverado 1500 4.8L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

All of a sudden I notice that my gas gauge stopped working. At the same time my temperature gauge went out as well. I have doen alot of research on the NET and turns out its a bad cluster which is notorious for Chevys. I called the dealership and they want $450 to repair the cluster.

A friend of mine reccomended to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and leave it off for about 15-20 minutes. He was telling me that there are gears in the cluster that most times get stuck. I will give it a try tomorrow and report on how it works.

Come on CHEVY!!! This is your fault not mine!

problem #3

Silverado LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles

Resetting the dash cluster does not fix. $600-700 replacement of fuel sensor in the tank seems like the only remedy. Maybe the cost of it is why Chevy is putting of the recall for this problem and the frequency it seems to occur, even though they have be forced to recall prior years up to 2003. A friend of mine started a website "Piston Knock.Com" when Chevy refused retify an acknowledged design flaw (they eventually offered a new vehicle) I see "Steering Column Slap.Com" and "" coming to the internet soon.

problem #1

Jan 142007

(reported on)

Silverado W/T 4.3L V6

  • Manual transmission
  • 34,000 miles

I was driving down the road and my truck ran out of gas. My gauge showed a 1/2 tank of gas. So I had to wait on the Roadside assistance to bring me gas. I took my truck to the dealership and yet another sensor had gone out. The fifth one on this truck. I had to sit at the dealership for 4 hrs while the dropped out my tank and replace the sensor. This is one of the many things in a long list of complaints on this truck.
