problem #2

Silverado 3500 8-cyl

  • 48,000 miles


There was a very strong gasoline smell with the vehicle running. While looking for the source, I noticed fuel spraying out under the passenger side of the vehicle. The dealership determined that it was the high pressure fuel line that was leaking. I do not know if this is a deign flaw, a defect in the part or poor workmanship, but it could have had serious consequences if the fuel had ignited, which was possible with the pressure and volume of the leak. It was replaced without charge due to it being a "safety factor". the truck is not driven in extreme conditions. I had not run over anything, and cannot think of any reason for the fuel line to rupture.
