ENGINE

12/20/2014 - RIO RANCHO , NM
WHILE DRIVING TO WORK IN HEAVY TRAFFIC, MY 2010 CHEVROLET SILVERADO WITH 27,000 MILE SUDDENLY LOST POWER AND SLOWED FROM 50MPH TO 25MPH IN A MATTER OF SECONDS. DUE TO THE EXTREME REDUCTION IN SPEED WITH OUT MY BRAKE LIGHTS BEING ENGAGED, A VEHICLE FOLLOWING ME HAD TO MAKE AN EMERGENCY MANEUVER, TURN IN THE RIGHT LANE, AND ALMOST STRUCK A THIRD VEHICLE. THREE WARNING MESSAGES WERE GIVEN THAT INCLUDED, ENGINE POWER REDUCED, TRACTION CONTROL OFF AND SERVICE STABILITRACK. THE VEHICLE STARTED TO RUN EXTREMELY ROUGH AND I PULLED INTO A PARKING LOT. WHILE IN THE PARKING, LOT I RESEARCHED THE ABOVE LISTED MESSAGES AND FOUND THAT SEVERAL OTHER OWNERS HAVE EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEM THAT HAS BEEN LINKED TO THE THROTTLE BODY SYSTEM AND THE INTAKE. I THEN RESEARCHED IF ANY RECALLS HAVE BEEN ISSUED FOR THIS VEHICLE. I FOUND THAT A SERVICE BULLETIN WAS ISSUED BUT NOT A RECALL. I WAS ALSO SURPRISED THAT THIS ISSUE APPEARS TO HAVE NOTHING TO DUE WITH STABILITRACK. I THEN LIMPED THE VEHICLE HOME AT 20 MPH. WHEN THE VEHICLE WOULD SHIFT FROM FIRST TO SECOND GEAR IT WOULD LUNG FORWARD VIOLENTLY. I LATER CALLED THE PITRE GMC, IN ALBUQUERQUE NM, AND SPOKE WITH A SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE. I ASKED HIM IF A RECALLED HAD BEEN ISSUED FOR THESE VEHICLES IN REFERENCE TO THIS TYPE OF INCIDENT. HE STATED THAT HE DID NOT KNOW OF A RECALL BUT I COULD DRIVE IT DOWN TO THEIR SERVICE DEPARTMENT AND THEY COULD CHECK THE CODES ON IT. I WAS SURPRISED BY HIS RESPONSE INSTRUCTING ME TO DRIVE AN UNSAFE VEHICLE. I BELIEVE THIS ISSUE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED DUE TO THE LIKELIHOOD OF A MOTOR VEHICLE CRASH THAT COULD RESULT IN SEVER INJURY OR DEATH. HOPEFULLY GM AND NHTSA WILL NOT WAIT UNTIL THERE ARE NUMEROUS DEATHS TO ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM. THIS IS POTENTIALLY AS DANGEROUS AS THE IGNITION SWITCH ISSUE THAT KILLED SEVERAL PEOPLE. I AM A GENERATIONAL CHEVROLET CONSUMER, BUT THAT WILL PROBABLY CHANGE.

10/27/2014 - PHOENIX, AZ
WE WERE DRIVING OUR 2010 CHEVY SILVERADO (WITH 11,951 MILES ON IT) ON THE FREEWAY IN THE HOV LANE AT APPROXIMATELY 70 MPH. THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS ON. WITHOUT WARNING, THE TRUCK JUMPED 3 TIMES AND THEN APPARENTLY THE ENGINE JUST SHUT OFF. THERE WAS NO ACCELERATION, NO POWER STEERING OR POWER BRAKES. ONCE THE TRUCK CAME TO A STOP, WE TRIED TO START IT AGAIN. THE STARTER TURNED BUT THE TRUCK WOULD NOT START. AFTER APPROXIMATELY 10 MINUTES, WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE TRUCK STARTED AND MOVED TO A SAFE LOCATION. THEN WE CALLED AND HAD IT TOWED TO A LOCAL CHEVY DEALER. THE REPORT WE GOT BACK IS AS FOLLOWS: " PERFORM SYSTEM CHECKS, SCAN CHECK SHOWS NO CODES STORED IN ANY MODULES. ROAD TEST MULTIPLE TIMES WITHOUT FAILURE, LET RUN IN STALL FOR 3 HOURS. NO STALL EVER OCCURRED. NO REPAIR REQUIRED AT THIS TIME." I QUESTIONED THE MECHANIC ABOUT CHECKING FUEL SYSTEM AND HE SAID SINCE IT WAS WORKING THERE WAS NOTHING TO CHECK. SO WE HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TRUCK, BUT WE ARE AFRAID TO DRIVE IT. THE INCIDENT WAS A MAJOR INCONVENIENCE TO US, BUT MORE IMPORTANT, IT WAS AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION. WE ARE FORTUNATE THAT NO ACCIDENT OCCURRED AND THAT NO ONE WAS INJURED.
