I took the truck to the dealership the next day. It happens almost every day, on busy expressways or on main roads and side roads. The truck is loaded with leather. The vehicle has approximately 95,000 miles on the odometer. While driving 10 mph, the engine jerked and shook as the check engine light, reduce engine power, and service traction control lights illuminated.
The truck is in very good condition and has 96,000 miles on it. I stalled out in the middle of an intersection the other day and sat there for 2-3 minutes trying to start the truck. I was able to drive the vehicle at about 25 mph on the shoulder. Since then there have been several occasions where the truck simply shuts off while I am driving. The gas pedal loses communication with the throttle body. I have attached 4 pics that he sent me of the truck.
How is this engine compared to the Duramax engine? The other is a 1998 exactly like the one you pictured. With some difficulty in heavy traffic, I was able to maneuver to the right shoulder of the road. Peak Torque: Introduced at 360 lb-ft 1,700 rpm. The vehicle was not repaired. My engine light has never been tripped by this problem.
I have to go and look at it personally yet. There were no warning indicators prior to the vehicle losing power. That ability can be traced to its power plant. We carry an extensive inventory of used, overstock and surplus engines for all Chevrolet Silverado 2500 applications including gasoline and diesel engines. . The engine is often considered an attractive balance between performance and fuel economy, although it arguably became outdated in the wake of its direct injection competition.
The contact stated that while driving at 65 mph, the engine stalled without warning. Occasionally, the vehicle would shut down and immediately restart, but other times, it would take longer to do so. Posted on Jan 04, 2009 two items, check you oil, the fuel pump grounds on the sending unit, install a pressure guage on the feed fuel line with a section of clear plastic line, do the same on the return line, any air bubbles that are in the system will cause engine shutdown, any of these will not set a code on the ecm Nov 23, 2009. Since it was a Sunday, the service department was closed. Offered as high as 215 hp 3,200 rpm. We will see what happens.
The failure mileage was 100,000. I called the guy on it over the last couple days and he sounds like he is not going to move at all from his asking price. With the amount of complaints and the level of danger associated with this I would hope this would be recalled for the safety reasons. I bought it last year with a 7. At approximately 65 mph in the left lane with the cruise control set, I experienced a sudden loss of power accompanied by a loud engine rattling, and the check engine light came on.
I could use this truck not only for my plowing, but for hauling my camper around as well. Putting the work in this luxury workhorse, my test beast was outfitted with a 6. The next morning, the dealership¿s service department pulled up codes po202 and p2149. The recall number was unknown. The contact experienced intermittent losses of power with his vehicle. Returned the next day and he did exactly that fought with the bank until I was right where I wanted to be and I brought her home.
This answer is a bunch of crap. I would have liked a more dealer friendly response. This is nerve wracking when driving 65 mph on the expressway and all of a sudden the vehicle wont respond to stepping on the gas pedal. They said they would need to order a new computer, they reprogrammed the defective computer again and said they would call when the new one was in. The failure mileage was 41,209. . Stepping on the gas does nothing.
Well, I am going to go and look at it tomorrow. The current mileage was 121,000 and failure mileage was approximately 119,000. After reading the trouble codes and consulting with several mechanics we determined the problem to be the crank shaft position sensor. My buddy has a Boss V plow that he said I could buy from him to hang on the front too. Within seconds the engine restarts. Most of the people I know that have the 6. When power is supplied to the fuel solenoid, fuel flows to the injection pump and the engine is allowed to run.
This will save your batteries. I felt the response was dishonest and presumptuous. I'm also not too familiar with how the auto tranny held up against it. Its purpose is to supply power to the fuel solenoid, which allows or blocks fuel flow to the injection pump. Then im unable to even use remote start features of my vehicle at this point. Granted you can't find an early Duramax with that low of miles. If you get it, be sure to add a set of Timbrens to the front end.
