Silverado and Sierra HD Recall due to faulty Fuel Gauges

GM is recalling Silverado and GMC HD pickup trucks.

Silverado and Sierra HD recallo affects 2012 and 2013 model year Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickup trcucks, according to a report made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Nearly 9,733 vehicles are affected by the recall. It should be noted that the affected trcuks are equipped with 6.6-liter diesel engines and feature dual fuel tanks. 


Unfortunately, there is no information available about the exact dates that the recalled vehicles were built. Also, there is no information about how many vehicles from GMC and how many from Chevrolet are being recalled.


The problem with the affected pickup trucks is that the transfer pump which moves fuel from the rear tank to the front one may fail to function properly. This may cause the duel gauge to indicate an inaccurate reading. As a result, the drivers amy run out of fuel without being aware of that.


General Motors will notify the affected owners and the dealers will inspect the replace the defective fuel transfer pumps free of charge, if needed.

Trcuck onwer can contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782 and Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 for more information about the Silverado and Sierra HD recall.
