Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • 144,000 miles
Attempted to stop at 10 mph driving straight antilock brake system activated, had no brakes, put transmission into 1st gear stopped 1 foot from building. Almost went through plate glass window! I just changed both my front antilock sensor's and had no effect on the loss of the brakes, they just pulsed. Owned this vehicle since 2001 and have had two antilock brake computers replaces at a cost of $800 each time.

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

Just backed into the St. Clair river to retrieve small boat. Loaded boat. As I put my foot down on brake pedal to move transmission to drive, brake pedal went to floor, got the trans to neutral, but not to drive. The truck and boat started to roll into river. Panic situation... jambed trans into drive, and was able to get truck out of river, with water line half way up drivers door. Once home discovered badly rusted brake line above fuel tank ruptured. Repaired... two months later, while wife was driving truck to work, brake line between master cylinder and ABS modual failed. Had enough! replaced all brake lines on truck except the one over rear axel. I still willd O that one also. ABS/brake lights on dash are still illuminated. Still trying to figure out that issue.. many discussions with other Silverado owners, and autoparts employees. This seems to be a very common issue, with very dangarous potential for injurys..

Problems with 2000 Chevrolet Silverado rotors, wheels, tailgate strap, drive shaft, and 4-wheel drive. Nar see ODI#10037613 ES03-006296. At 12000 miles both rear rotors had to be replaced, 2000 miles later both front rotors had to be replaced. A clunking sound was heard in the rear of the vehicle. The consumer believes it either the rear suspension or drive shaft. All four of the vehicle's wheels had to be replaced at 6000 miles because they were rusting. The tailgate strap broke at 17000 miles. When the four wheel drive was engaged there was a growling noise.
