The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact observed fuel leaking from the undercarriage of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who diagnosed that the fuel line needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 25,000.

Silverado 3500

  • 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.

Silverado 3500 8-cyl Diesel

  • 24,960 miles
I was driving down the interstate and check engine light came on, digital dash stated "power reduced" + "exhaust filter requires cleaning", and speed dropped to no more than 45mph. = = after a few minutes, operation was back to normal. = = this issue has continued and seems to be getting worse whether pulling a trailer or not; flat or hills makes no difference. = = took the Chevy dealer in terre haute, in (spent hundreds of dollars) and local dealer in clinton twp., mi and they could not correct this dangerous performance issue. = = this problem should be a recall as I've it will cost me approx. $3000 to correct this "exhaust filter" problem / issue (which is really caused by the federal congress mandating through legislation about nothing they know about)...
