Failure Date: 10/13/2011

There was a strong smell of gas in the car as well as another vehicle who pulled me over to tell me my truck was pouring gas. After having it towed to my mechanic, he informed me that the fuel pumped assembly had rotted and need to be replaced. He stated that this part should not have rotted like this. Thankfully this was found before anything catastrophic had happened as I constantly driving around with my two young children in the car. I have kept the old part to show how it had rotted. I haven't heard of any recall for this but being that this situation was extremely dangerous I feel it warrants looking into. This was also an expensive fix and considering it should not have rotted like this, I feel I should receive reimbursement from the manufacturer. This is a huge health and safety issue that requires serious attention.

The contact owns a 2009 GMC Yukon denali. When the contact started the vehicle, he noticed that the check engine warning light illuminated; the failure was similar to recall 09v154000 (fuel system, gasoline). He was able to reset the light and it turned off; however, the next day the contact was traveling approximately 50 mph when the check engine warning light illuminated again. Shortly after, the vehicle stalled and was towed to an authorized dealer. The dealer performed a diagnostic test and stated that the fuel pump control module had a shortage and replaced the module. The manufacturer was notified who stated that the vehicle was not included in the recall. The current and failure mileages were 80,272.

2005 faulty GMC Yukon dash system. Dealer originally told me it was the fuel pump but suggested it might be alcohol in the gasoline. I tried using ethanol free gas and it worked. I couldn't find any ethanol free gas on Dec 25th so I had to use 10% ethanol and my entire dash has quit working. I can't tell how fast I'm going, if I have fuel or how many miles I have on my vehicle. The GMC dealership wants me to replace my fuel pump, dash board and they estimate it will cost around $1500. It worked fine without ethanol!.

At 250,000 km. Oem fuel on 97 GMC Yukon quite. Oct 2007 purchased a carter fuel sending unit which gave up Jan/2008 at less than 5000 km. Of service during cold weather. Returned for warranty and install new unit Feb 2008 which gave many starting misses and hesitations and finally left stranded during minus 30 celsius weather Dec 2008. Carter fuel pumps tested first unit and said pump runs fine so you will pay for second unit. Neither unit runs consistently without being rapped on a time or two during a trip to town. Yes I had to make a special floor access to the tank as the towing fees would have been astronomical not to mention the repair bills. The second unit lasted 10,000 km as it was warm weather. Reminded purchased oemgmc unit which performs flawlessly in this minus 30 weather.

While driving at 65 mph, the Yukon just shut down and the battery light came on. Got to shoulder of road, put it in park, turn of the ignition and started it right back up. Did it again, 15 minutes later - same results. The next 7 times, the car at low speed (15-20 mph) started acting like it wasn't getting gas and running rough, not pulling. Pulled of road. Would turn over and try to start and if it started, was very rough. After about 15 minutes, the Yukon started like nothing was wrong and would run for 10-15 minutes. This also happened to me in June. Took to an independent mechanic who could find nothing wrong. Happened to my parents in 2006 in this vehicle traveling to mississippi. GMC dealer could find nothing wrong. Currently the dealer wants to change the fuel pump. I have researched and others with this problem have replaced the fuel pump and it doesn't stop happening. Speedometer just failed too. Wonder if it could be an electronics/electrical problem.

My 2000 Yukon's fuel pump failed while driving our family on hwy 94 east. The vehicle was towed to the service station who happened to have approx. 20 failed fuel pump modules and assured me that they will install the upgraded pump that does not "burn" when the vehicle operated with low fuel level!!! I googled the failure and came to your recall 05v155000 and the gm 05027 but GMC does not honor it for my VIN number??? what is surprising is that when we bought the new pump from the dealer they had the "upgraded" acdelco one on the self but other than that I should have no problem according to our VIN number!!! so I thought that if every GMC owner reports here maybe they will get their act together there in gm and install something of a better quality fuel delivery system in their $40k vehicles!!! a very upset but loyal gm owner.

The vehicle would be running fine, then you would not know after you made a stop and turned it off if it would start again. Sometimes you could disconnect the battery cables for a while and then it would start. Took it to the shop, they could not find a definitive problem. Then the fuel pump went out, replaced it and two weeks later it went out again. Replaced the pump and wiring harness, two weeks later out again, replaced pump and relays. Then about a month and a half the fuel pump went out again! replaced the pump and they installed a different wiring harness this time, I have only driven it for a day this time, wonder how long this pump will last. The mechanic I use went to the gm dealer to get the fuel pumps. Also, I bought the Yukon used, and when I filled it up I noticed a gas smell, and discovered it was leaking. Took it back to the car lot, they said they fixed it, but the next time I filled up it was leaking again. Shortly thereafter the fuel pump saga started! what is the problem here?? I have a great mechanic and he has checked that truck all over, and cannot come up with a good reason why the fuel pumps keep going out. I have not contacted gm yet.

Fuel pump is whistling and fuel leak is apparent when parked overnight in garage. Already replaced one pump at 96,000 miles. Already had service on the melted wires 2 years ago. Can gm provide the cost of the gm brand fuel pump so it can be replaced?.

The majority of the time when I go to the gas station and try to pump gas, the pump always shuts off. It happens when I pump gas manually or use the lever on the gas pump. I pull out the gas nozzle and re-insert it and it continually happens. It is very annoying trying to fill up the 26 gallon gas tank.

Fuel pump fuse blows during highway driving. Not sure of exact speed. I believe I was driving at about 60 to 65 miles per hour. Blew four times. Problem once per mile. I got off the highway and took the street the rest of the way and the fuse did not blow. Have not been to a mechanic yet except for my dad and we both agreed that it was weird that the fuse kept blowing. Fyi when the fuse blew the engine just stalled and I coasted to the edge of the highway. The vehicle would not start either until the fuse was replaced.

Lost power on highway 10:00 p. M car towed to dealer and was told fuel pump needs to be replaced, $966. 00 this is the 2nd time first 2004 gas gauge was not marking levels dealer said "blown fuse" ? now this. They will not cover under recall because only "module reservoir" is in the recall who's to say the module reservoir defect isn't what caused (disabled) the fuel pump. Making it necessary to replace to fuel pump.

This vehicle continues to leave us on the side of the road. We have been told by the dealer it is the fuel pump. They have replaced 3 times now but still stalling, won't start, dies while driving, etc. . . So far the problem has not been corrected, the dealer just keeps changing the fuel pump. They tell us gm knows there is a problem with the fuel pumps on these SUV's.

My 2000 GMC Yukon started leaking gas from the fuel pump into the electrical of the fuel pump. This could be serious and could cause the truck to explode. There needs to be a recall on this before death occurs.
