General Motors is recalling 22,132 model-year 2017-2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500, and GMC Sierra 2500, 3500 vehicles equipped with a dual fuel tank option. The rear fuel tank may collapse and prevent the fuel pump from transferring fuel to the front tank, resulting in an engine stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 24, 2023. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 800-462-8782, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect and replace the fuel tank and fuel pump module, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
