problem #2

Mar 172003

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


My 2000 Chevrolet 2500 Silverado throttle sticks shut when first started. Mine has a 6.0 liter V-8, but I know several people with different engines and model years with the exact same problem. The pedal sticks so hard that it takes a great deal of effort to make it release resulting in large burst of speed and loss of control. The dealers refuse to correct except under warranty which I no longer have. The factory knows there is a problem and dealers acknowledge as well but will not correct without being paid. This is a very dangerous problem. We have had several near misses.

The throtle body gets dirty and sticks and then you give it more gas than you intend and hit something like a garage or person. Has been fixed twice and GM knows they have a problem but say it is up to me to keep fixing it so I don't have a accident all the Silverado have the same problem every 25,000 miles. It is an engineering accident waiting to happen
