problem #4

Silverado 2500

  • 250,000 miles


Vehicle has been stalling and losing trailer brakes. There is a recall on this but this particular truck did not fall in the recall. The trailer brake module on the frame rail of the truck was full of water. I has been replaced and all is good now. Could have been a very bad situation but was able to prevent an accident.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. While operating the vehicle, the fuel gauge indicated that the fuel tank was empty. After filling the tank with fuel, the fuel gauge continued to indicate that the fuel tank was empty. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who diagnosed that the fuel sending unit was faulty and needed to be replaced. The fuel sending unit was replaced, but the failure eventually recurred. The contact indicated that the fuel sending unit had to be replaced an additional two times since the initial failure. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The initial failure mileage was 60,000.

Silverado 2500

  • 68,500 miles
I bought this vehicle used with about 66,000 miles on the odometer. Shortly thereafter, the check engine light came on, and I found an evaporative emissions code stored. I cleared the code and went about my business. Not long after, I went to fill the truck with fuel and gasoline spilled out from the top of the gas tank without coming up the filling neck. When I got around to taking the tank off the trunk to look for the cause of the issue, I found that the top plate of the fuel sending unit had rusted through and left an approximate 1" X 1/2" hole where fuel and vapor was able to escape. As far as I know, this was the original sending unit for the vehicle. I am replacing the unit with a delphi sending unit with a plastic top; hoping that this will prevent future leaks of this nature.
