Chevrolet Express 3500 Problems

Worn Valve Seats May Cause Engine Misfire

The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us the misfire may or may not be felt while driving. They further recommend that both cylinder heads be removed and thoroughly inspected and repaired as necessary.

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.

Tail Light Wiring in Cargo Area May be Damaged

The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

@around 65K now. Very reliable vehicle. Still on original brakes even though I live and drive mostly in a metro area. Great air and since I live in the desert that says even more. But I am glad the Van does have the rear air option. Other than that I have only had a few bulbs burn out. Perform all scheduled maintenance and have not had major problems. Though I have 2 weird intermittent p...
Very bad problem with paint on this vehicle. Paint starts peeling off the hood and then off the rest of the van. All that is left is the primer. If you watch when you are on the road you will see many of these models with the same problem.
