problem #3

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,092 miles


I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado with a 8.1 liter engine, I was turned down on my warranty because there was rust in the fuel rail. We took fuel samples and there was no water in the fuel tank, nor the fuel lines. So how did the rust get in the fuel rail and injectors. I did notice that the new rail that the GM dealer installed was stainless steel. When I bring it up the dealer nor GM will talk about it. This repair was going to be warranty but instead it cost me $1,145.50 dollars. This was the second time I took it in to the dealer. The people I bought the truck from said they would give me my money back, but now all their offering me is $218 I told them to shove it. This truck costs me $41,900 dollars! the last thing I want is this warranty company to tell me is no! the warranty cost me another $2,000 I can tell it isn't worth the paper it is written on. Please I am on my last knee, please help !

The contact stated Chevrolet Silverado 2500 duramax experienced loss of power while driving. When the problem first began he reported popping and backfiring to dealership. The truck has been to the dealer four times for an extended amount of time on each examination. The dealer experienced the problem first hand. The dealer replaced the fuel filter and the fuel rails. The vehicle was still experiencing power loss. The manufacturer has been contacted six times. They requested another diagnostic test be done on the truck.
