Chevrolet 1500 Pickup Problems

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.

Inside and/or Outside Door Handles May Break

The inside and outside door handles a prone to breaking. Commonly broken handles cannot be repaired, they will require replacement.

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. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine  with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.

The seat belts installed on the vehicle may not meet proper federal requirements. Dealers will replace both front seat belts free of charge to resolve the concern.

The bolts that secure the seat recliner to the seat frame may loosen, fatigue and fracture, causing the seat back to recline suddenly. Dealers will remove all foam and fabric sandwiched between the recliner and frame, install washers between them, and install new bolts, tightening them to a higher torque specification free of charge to resolve the concern.
