1997 GMC 1500 Pickup Problems

Inside/Outside Door Handles May Break

The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

Windshield Wipers May Fail Due to Faulty Wiper Motor Control Board

The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.

Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.

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.
