TRAVELLING I-270 IN DUBLIN, OHIO AROUND 2PM AT APPROXIMATELY 70MPH WHEN TRUCK ENGINE DIED. THE EMERGENCY FLASHERS AND RADIO WERE STILL OPERATIONAL. PULLED TO RIGHT SIDE OF HIGHWAY AND ATTEMPTED TO STOP. THE BRAKES WERE LOSING POWER, BUT THERE WAS ENOUGH TO SLOW AND THEN STOP. DASH INDICATED +REDUCED POWER+. UPON PULLING OFF ROAD, WIFE CONTACTED AAA, WHILE I LOOKED UNDER HOOD FOR ANYTHING OBVIOUS SUCH AS BATTERY TERMINALS LOOSE OR ANY PLUGS BEING UNPLUGGED. NOTHING APPEARED OUT OF ORDER, I GOT BACK INTO TRUCK AND IT STARTED. I TOLD WIFE TO TELL AAA WE WOULD ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT HOME, APPROXIMATELY 2 HOURS AWAY. THROUGH THIS ALL, THE TRUCK HAD STOPPED RUNNING 6 MORE TIMES BEFORE WE GOT HOME. IT RESTARTED AFTER SITTING A FEW MINUTES EACH TIME.TRUCK WAS TOWED TO LOCAL CHEVY DEALERSHIP. AFTER A FEW DAYS, RECEIVED CALL TRUCK WAS REPAIRED. THE PCM (POWER CONTROL MODULE) WAS REPLACED. WHEN I GOT INTO VEHICLE THERE WAS A SHEET OF PAPER ON TRANSMISSION HUMP EXPLAINING WHAT A REFURBISHED PART IS (NHTSA DOC#2). I GLANCED AT IT AND THOUGHT IT WAS MISTAKE SINCE I WAS CHARGED $500 FOR THE PART ALONE. TOTAL COST WAS $772.36 (NHTSA DOC#1). WHEN I GOT HOME I REVIEWED THE PAPERWORK, SAW THEY HAD INSTALLED A USED PART AND IMMEDIATELY CALLED. THEY SAID A NEW PART WAS NOT AVAILABLE. I CONTACTED GENERAL MOTORS (NHTSA DOC#4 & NHTSA DOC#5) AND THEY WERE NO HELP. I ALSO CONTACTED AC DELCO AND THEY CONFIRMED THE PART WAS NOT AVAILABLE AS NEW. I THOUGHT MANUFACTURERS WERE REQUIRED TO MAKE PARTS AVAILABLE FOR VEHICLES 10 YEARS AFTER PRODUCTION STOPPED. THE TRUCK IS 10 YEARS OLD, BUT PRODUCTION OF THAT GENERATION STOPPED IN 2012.
