problem #2

Sierra 1500

  • 69,150 miles


Near 69,150 miles the oil pressure gauge for my GMC Sierra 1500 2011, all at once, went to zero giving me a warning message to immediately stop the engine. It turned out to be a faulty oil pressure sensor. In addition oil was leaking badly out around the sensor and completely coated everything in the engine compartment and underneath. A year later the sensor went bad again. GMC says its not covered under the power train warranty and its costing me $400 each time it goes bad.

Sierra 1500

  • 800 miles
The contact owns a 2011 GMC Sierra 1500. The contact was driving up an incline approximately 5 mph and plowing snow in a residential driveway. When the contact shifted into reverse, the vehicle began to roll forward and the engine stalled. The vehicle came to a stop after the contact applied the brakes repeatedly. The contact stated that the failure would also occur when driving forward on an incline. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the technician performed a road test and informed the contact that the vehicle was operating as designed. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 800.
