2005 GMC Yukon XL 1500 Recalls
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.
On vehicles equipped with the Bosch hydraulic brake booster, the boost pressure accumulator may crack and break away from the hydro-boost assembly during normal operation. If this were to happen while the hood is open, fragments from the accumulator could injure people standing in the immediate area. The loss of fluid while driving would cause increased steering and braking effort and a crash could occur without warning. Dealers will test the hydro-boost assembly for function of the two-function valve. If the hydro-boost assembly fails the test, it will be replaced free of charge. The recall began March 23, 2005. The GM recall number is 05006.
707 vehicles may have a missing brake pedal push rod retainer. If the retainer is missing, the brake pedal could disengage from the booster push rod.

General Motors will begin contacting owners by telephone on March 10, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05039.

on a cold start the oil gauge will go to 80 then drop to zero will stay on zero until 10 minutes or more of driving, then when I come to a stop it will jump to 80 and stay on 80. Please advise of possible problem and estimate repair cost. Thank you.
