My fuel pump went out without warning. The high cost was unexpected. After making comments to several people, I have found out that about 50% of the people that I have talked to had the same problem throughout the entire gm line.

I have an 2001 s-10 extended cab 4x4 truck. I have had to have this truck towed 4 times & 4 or 5 fuel pumps put in also a wire that goes to fuel pump & a new gas cap also. I bought this truck in June of 06 & drove it 3 days before the first break down. It was down for 2 months. The place of purchase led me to believe that the truck was in perfect condition with no problems or any wrecks. When the truck was towed to a chevy dealership for repair it cost over 500$ just in labor alone not to mention the cost of the fuel pumps & full diagnostics. I am still having problems with the gas tank. When I fill the truck up it runs out the top of the tank itself under the bed of my truck . Isn't this a danger to my safety ? the chevy dealership doesn't want to stand by their work now so I'm stuck with a deadly vehicle. I plan to file any complaint I can & if possible I will get it on the news as well. Within a few hours of my buying this junk the auto dealer where I bought it sold my contract to a finance company so now the dealer is not responsible for the things that were & are bad. The truck bed only had 1 bolt holding the whole bed on & the gas tank only had 1 strap on 1 side holding the gas tank up. . . The finance company won't help with this problem either. I have been researching this type of truck & have found that way to many people have the same problems as I do when it comes to the gas tank & fuel pump. Shouldn't someone be held liable for this problem ? would the makers of the s-10 truck allow their kids or family to ride in a truck that could possibly one day cause their death ? when a gas tank leaks fuel from the tank under the truck what would happen if at a stop light someone throws a cigarette out & it hits the gas that's leaked out ? my opinion the truck would blow up. If there is anyone who can tell me where to complain I'd be ever so grateful for that info. Cathy in ky.

On 9-18-2004 fuel pump was replaced after I was left stuck in rush hour traffic the night before. On 9-23-2005 fuel pump was replaced after complained that the fuel gauge bounces up and down. They then replaced the fuel pump but I had to pay out of pocket for repair because I was 6 days beyond warranty. On 3-1-06 while at the dealership in va the car would not start yet again due to the fuel pump and I had to find yet another way home.

The vehicle stalled. The dealer has had it twice and could not duplicate the problem. This was a serious safety issue. This happened for about a month and was intermittent. It started on August 1, 2005. No warning given, it just quit. The dealer replaced the fuel filter and the fuel pump.

I was driving when vehicle engine just stopped. No warning at all. I was able to exit the traffic lanes safely. I was lucky that the traffic was light at that time. The vehicle is a 2000 Chevrolet S10 pickup with only 41000 miles. Initial problem was the fuel pump according to the Chevrolet dealer. Since this happened to me I've heard of two other chevy pickups having the same problem.

Faulty fuel gauge/sensor: the '97 chevy S10 I own recently experienced very erratic behavior with indicating the level of fuel currently in the vehicle. While depending upon the gauge I ran out of fuel when the gauge showed just under 1/2 tank. This vehicle has just over 40,000 miles on it so I thought it would be a good thing to check with the local chevy dealer. After paying an insane amount of money ($100) just to run dianostics on it the end result was exactly what I had expected and seen by others on the internet with the same vehicle. The chevy dealer says the minimum that it will cost is $550 to replace the "sending card," if the module is bad then it will cost $1050. Not having that amount of $$ available I decided to not have it repaired at this time (probably never). Since technically this could be a safety issue I would like to report it. Running out of fuel in the winter months is not all that great. Luckily it didn't happen a week earlier when it was well below zero. Gm please fix your so call glitches. This vehicle has not been a fun experience to own and most likely will be the last gm I will ever own. . . .

Vehicle ran out of gas and lost power while driving. This occurred because of failures in the gas gauge and fuel pump system. Gas gauge failed to read the correct fuel level in tank. This failure also caused the vehicle to fail state inspection.

2002 Chevrolet S10 has had to have new fuel pump module put on 03/19/03 and has now gone out again on 12/31/03. Had leak in oil pan, leak in windshield on passenger side. The truck had 29,000 miles the first time the fuel pump went out and 55,000 this time when it went out. I feel that is entirely too frequent for fuel pumps to fail.

Truck wouldn't start and would often stall after it finally started. Acted like it had no fuel in tank. Had to have it towed to replace the fuel pump system twice, which was very costly.

There are 40,000 miles on my 2001 s-10 and the fuel pump went out. I filled the tank full of gas and 8 miles down the road , the fuel pump went out. I had the vehicle towed to a Chevrolet dealer and it cost over $900. 00 to replace the pump. $500. 00 for the pump, $60 for the diagnostic, 400. 00 for the labor. This is unacceptable! .

My 2001 s-10 pick up stalls when driving down the road. Acts similar to investigation pe02-066. Took vehicle to dealer and explained problem. They could not find anything wrong. I still have the problem. Truck was out of warranty when taken in had 44,106 miles. Shouldn't the dealer been aware of your investigation and possibly looked at this filter?. I think you should reopen this case, I think that there is a severe defect in their design. Tomorrow I am going to dealer armed with information from your website and I am going to put up a stink about this. Please take another look at this case. Thank you. Sincerely, robert a. Wright.

Car is dangerous in that it misfires in higher speed conditions. Chevy executive office and 2 dealers (o'connor & bob johnson in NY) refused warranty coverage after their 4th attempt failed to cure the problem. 2 independent shops verified problem. Chevy executive office (ms. Mann) refused to call independent mechanics for any information even though this would have helped with diagnosis. Car is not even a year old with less than 4200 miles.

I bought my 2002 chevy S10 truck in June of 2002. October 21, 2002 at 4035 miles the idler arm was replaced. January 2003 the heat sensor for the heater needed to be replaced, as the blower worked but the heat wouldn't. March 4, 2004 at 26, 345 miles the idler arm was replaced. Also, the drivers door had to be adjusted not closing properly, the drivers side visor wasn't aligned and wouldn't lock in place needed to be adjusted. July 8th the fuel pump modulator needed to be replaced. I feel this is way to many problems for a new vehicle.

Truck refuses to start when engina/outside temp is warm-dealer states fuel pump not putting out sufficient flow-car will start 10 minutes after failed attempt-dealer wants approx. 1000. 00 dollars to replace fuel pump on this vehicle, with no guarantees this is the problem. Prblem is similar to others found on your complaint posts.

Previous complaint of no start condition-dealer suggests new fuel pump at an estimated cost of 1000. 00. I have determined that fix relates to a faulty gas cap. It puts the fuel system in a deep vacuum on a hot or warm restart, this part cost 6. 60 at the local parts store. I can't believe that the dealer overlooked this and charged me 72. 00 for a fuel pressure test and then tried to sell me a 1000. 00 job by shotgunning in a part!.
