Fuel Level Sensor Failure

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Recalls

Fuel May Leak from Fuel Rail

The retainer clip for the fuel rail pulse damper may fracture and allow the damper to come loose from the fuel rail. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the engine fuel rail pulse damper free of charge. The recall began August 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 06080.

Power Steering Hose May Burst

Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur. Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.

Recall 05V161000

I have only used Mobil 1 synthetic since ...
Iam very happy with my Silverado and with the southern comfort package it looks as stunning as iy runs. I have 90,000 miles on it and I have only had one issue with it and that is the switch for the four wheel drive. The fuel milage I get just blows away any other truck out there, I average 19.8 mpg on the highway and 17.8 mpg in the city. It is such a pleasure to drive.
A great truck, but all the chevy truck I've have owned have been great.1500 crew cab rides well, very roomy, 16 mpg, tows well 8600 lbs trailer to the mountains.

The brakes are the best. one day at 60mph had to make an emergency stop 40 feet till impact, She stoped three feet before impact and saved the day and lives. Great antlock...
