How to repair the particle exhaust filter?
Can I remove the particle filter altogether?
I tow a 5th wheel. Have had brakes checked by two different dealers who said they're "fine". Of course they won't drive w/trailer attached. Shimmy (much more that ABS) occurred after overheated. Had rotors resurfaced at dealer. Nothing in manual about resurfacing. Someone told...
Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD Recalls
Vehicles equipped with a 6.6L diesel engine and dual fuel tanks are being recalled because the transfer pump that moves fuel from the rear tank to the front tank could cause the fuel gauge in show the incorrect fuel level. The engine could stall unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the fuel transfer pump and replace it as necessary to correct this concern.
All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.
The heated washer module under the hood could overheat due to excessive current draw. Under certain conditions, this could result in an under hood fire. This previous recall attempt in 2008 to repair this concern did not have the expected success. Dealers will now permanently disable and remove the heated washer module to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on June 20, 2010.

I purchased a Chevy Silverado 3500 HD 1-31-2012. A couple weeks after we got the truck the low coolant message came on the coolant drops two inches from the full mark. We took the truck to the dealer they did a pressure test on it didn’t see any leeks. A week or so later brought the truck back the dealer replaced the coolant tank. We had to take it back AGAIN we had gone through four gallons...
2013 Duramax 3500 work truck. Bought by public utility company. Truck had "low coolant" "washer fluid low" on since new. At 25,000 miles truck died on side of road. "reducing engine power" message. Truck has been at stealership for 6 weeks now! "It will be ready tomorrow" for weeks. Bullshit. I would never buy one of these. Dealership is Chevy dealer in Silverthorne Colorado.
