Question about 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

1 Answer

Check engine light, geting screwed by dealer i think

I have about 40,000 miles on my 2006 Chevy Silverado Work truck. The check engine light is on and I took it to the dealer. They said that my thermostat needed replacing and also there was a small oil leak near the manifold, 700$ to fix both. The warranty is out or this would not be as big of a deal. Is this common that you are aware of? Should I contact chevrolet corporate to see if there is anything they can do? This shouldnt happen after 40,000 miles is the bottom line. Thanks in advance.

Replacing a thermostat cost about 20 bucks or less done yourself and as far as the oil leak check for loose valv cover bolts and manifold bolts. Dealerships are crooks they will sabotage a vehicle in a heart beat. Try this first.

Looking to buy a truck with the service engine soon light is on and so is the Airbag light, it is a 99 Chevy Silverado with the 4.8L and 232000 miles, the dealer says that this is a common problem and...


I would have the OBD II memory scanned, and pin point why the check engine light is on. Check engine lights only come on when there is a problem, not because it`s normal!

Air bag light would be a problem to.

I would not buy it until all problems are known and/or fixed.

You must scan the Engine Control Module and collect fault codes before it can be determined why your engine controller turned the light on.

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500 2WD and the engine light came on. I went to Auto Zone who did a quick check and found it to be a failed EVAP vent solenoid. I took it to the Chevy dealership who stated...


***IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU MUST READ*****

Ok everyone, listen up....If you have a 04 and newer silverado, with a failed evap vent solenoid, you have to read this info. Do not pay $100+ for this part(actually $150.00 at the dealer). The following part numbers associated with this part have been gm#19207763,19152349, and AC DELCO #'s 214-2082 costing over $100.00 for the modified part. This is for the modified part, with the relocation of the filterbox, and the added hose that seperates the two. No one at Gm will tell you this, but this same part, that was origionally on your silverado, is also used in the 2006 Suburban. It will be an identical replacement for what is ON YOUR TRUCK, and the cost is $24.04 AT THE DEALER. I know this because I own a 2006 silverado, and a 2006 suburban. Looked at the suburban when the part went bad on the silverado(from overfilling the tank)and bingo, same part. Ask a parts person at GM, and they will tell you otherwise, but they are lying to you. Bought the suburban part today part # 25932571 (GM #) and everything is identical, right down to the numbers stamped on the part itself. Took the part off my silverado, put the replacement on (which gm told me is not the right part), cleared the codes, and bingo no more light after 3 consecutive starts...... Why, is it that GM feels we need to pay the price for something they did wrong???? And moreso, lie to us, telling us the $150.00 part is our only choice to fix the problem. My truck went 40K miles with the origional part, and probably only went bad because of my own stupidity in overfilling the tank, whay would I not just want to spend $24.00 to put on the same part, that will probably go the rest of the life of the truck with no tank overfills???? I say CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS BEEN SCAMMED INTO PAYING THE RIDICULOUS PRICE that GM is trying to **** out of us.....Please pass this on to the world, and every forum you can...Get the word out....Let the parts people at GM know we are on to their BS, and they can't take advantage of us like they have.....

1997 Chevy Silverado problem


hi, ok I'm sure you tried alot of solutions, I think the ECU has governed the engine must have sensed a previous problem or its just a malfunction from a sensor, important sensor to check is the 'engine knock sensor' try disconnecting and reconnecting it or test with multimeter and compare all readings with a new engine knock sensor or disconnect and reconnect battery, the other way might be to reset the engine managment system, this however I dont know but your dealer can do this for you.
