1997 Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Problems

Idling Problems Due to Vacuum Leak in Throttle Body Gasket

The throttle body gasket may develop a vacuum leak which may result in a higher than normal engine idle. Failed gaskets will require replacement.

ABS Front Wheel Speed Sensors May Fail

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

Leaking Water Pump May Cause Coolant Loss and Overheating

A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. The engine may overheat as a result of the coolant loss. A leaking water pump should be replaced.

Fuel Tank Rubs Causing Noise And Possible Leak

The fuel tank may rub on the body at the front inner corner, causing a noise and possible fuel tank damage resulting in leakage of fuel. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank for wear and install a spacer between the fuel tank and body, as well as replace leaking tanks free of charge to resolve the concern.

Front Seat Mounting Bolts Missing

Some front seat mounting bolts may not have been installed during vehicle manufacturing. Dealers will inspect for missing bolts and add them where necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Reclining Seats Create Pinch Hazard

The easy entry recliner seat operation may allow fingers or hands to get caught and pinched within the recliner mechanism. Dealers will install a protective cover over the recliner mechanism free of charge to resolve the concern.

my vehicle will not start.if i put gas in the fuel injector manually,it starts and stays running.Do you know the problem?
I purched this 1997 Chevy Truck 1500 From my Cousin wich was the first owner. He took good care of it.The truck Looks Good and Runs Great I Will be towing My Drag cars to the Drag Strip in 2014 With this Truck. Cant Wait! I Get Lots of Great Coments from People where ever I Go.
We are the original owners. Other than one recall item and one warranty replacement item, truck has been a jewel. We are about to hit the 80k mark on the odometer and have only had to replace the front disc brake pads and the idler arm - not counting the regular maintenance items. Plan on having this truck until death do us part.
