2006 GMC Sierra 2500 HD 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.

Tire and Loading Information Labels Are Innacurate

The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and installation instructions. At customers' request, a dealer can install the label for them. The recall began March 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 05109.

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.

What a difference that made in pulling the trailer. I can go from Phoenix to Flagstaff with the cruise control on pulling the trailer holding 65 mph (as long as I have an open lane). I had ...
I bought june 2006 from now defunct dealer lawrence marshall. I drove it over every bumpy road i could find and didn't rattle at all.

April of 2011 the dash stated making a ste...
I really like mine. 8.1 has plenty of power and does as good on fuel as the 6.0. I had leaking oil cooler line that I had to replace outside of warranty. Other than that, its been a good truck. Only have 42k miles on it ytd.
