Failure Date: 02/04/2011

This truck was bought new in 1997 and I have owned it and maintained it in good running order since then. I was stopped at a light when the truck suddenly stopped running. After having it towed to my home and doing some trouble shooting I determined the fuel pump was not working. I removed the gas tank and after removing the fuel pump discovered the grey wire to the pump had the insulation burned off for approximately one and a half inches. This damage was on the inside of the gas tank. The plug that the wire goes through was charred and melted away. I have taken pictures of the assembly and damage and have notified gm of the incident. I am amazed that this did not result in an explosion or a fire. The heat generated to melt the wire and plug is extensive. The plug was melted to the point it exposed it internal wiring. I understand that most cars and trucks have this type of assembly installed. The assembly that holds the fuel pump is original equipment. I would be more than willing to share the photos or the assembly for failure analysis.

Failure of fuel pump in my 2001 5. 3 liter Chevrolet silverado to accurately determine amount of fuel in tank. When I fill my tank with fuel the gauge reads erratically, the needle pins itself in the empty position. The problem is constant and on going. I notified gm and they offer no repair yet this same problem qualified as a recall for repair on the 2001 model suburban with the 5. 3 liter engine. Simply do a google search for 2001 sivlerado fuel gauge problems and you will be amazed at the number of respondents who have the identical problem yet there is no accountability from gm. Thank you.
