Trailblazer EXT

  • 38,000 miles


After getting gas and getting back in truck, I noticed the fuel gauge read E. after driving 100 plus miles the gauge would slowly drift up to half, then fall back to E. over time it got worse until the fuel gauge read E all the time. I finally convinced the dealership this was under ca emission warranty and they agreed to fix it. When they were doing the repair, they noticed the main connector for the fuel pump got hot and melted and was ready to short out. So they replaced the entire fuel pump assy. Also they noticed the clips that hold the fuel line to the tank were never installed by the manufacturer. So they installed those as well. The service dept knew about this problem right away, which tells me this has been a on going problem and they just do the repair under warranty to avoid any recalls. This is becoming a problem with more and more vehicles, and no one is willing to investigate this issue, unless the vehicle finally catches fire and someone loses their life before someone acts. If a fuel pump assy has a melted connector, there is something seriously wrong.
