problem #3

Silverado 4WD

  • miles
Intermittent problem, engine misfire at start, very rough idle, suspect poppet valve stick, obd code reads misfire on 6. dealer charges $50 to read and says to use fuel injection cleaner. Cannot get it to dealer when it does it and they will not repair solely on error code. This has failed over 6 times. Shut motor down and let it sit for a while and it restarts just fine.,

problem #2

Silverado Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Injection pump has failed twice, causing consumer to push vehicle out of traffic. First time GMC put a new part on and vehicle lost brakes when pulling out into a intersection. GMC is not considering assisting consumer because there are too many miles, and money will not be spent to investigate. New part is failing faster than the old.
