this is the 3rd time for injectors in our 2003 injectors, not one injector...all 8. lucky this time just 4 hrs. from home and somebody to come with trailer to pick us up. seems injectors only last 20 tp 30,000 miles and they are gone cracked. gm wont back them knowing they are a problem, and $5,000.00 each time they are replaced. gm injectors are junk out the door and leaving hundreds of owners stranded on highway and suffering tow bill and repairs, but this time we almost got rear ended by a semi truck which slammed on his breaks blowing a tire to miss us and our horse trailer with 3 horses in it. the abf trucker that almost hit us in the rear pulled over as we did, and told him the truck just stalled, we pulled the hood and diesel fuel was all over the place and he stated i cracked my injectors, the local gm dealer told me the same thing and that year has plenty of problems with injectors but gm wont replace them. what's it going to take, another bus load of kids killed to resolve this issue?? another $5,000.00 donation to gm. *tr

the rear exhaust manifold bolts are broken on my truck. from a few shops i talked to this happens to a lot of gm v8's like my 6.0l. one exhaust shop told me every "silverado/seirra" with a v8 around 1999-2002 has one or more manifold bolt broke off. i just cant imagine that gm can send out vehicles that they know are defective. they fixed this on later models with larger manifold bolts. but screw the guy who has an older truck, right? this should be investigated, and gm should be forced to repair this at no cost or a discounted cost. *tr

at freeway speeds i noticed the oil pressure had dropped to almost 2 out of 10 on the pressure gage. i stopped as soon as possible and let the engine cool for 20 minutes. i checked the oil level and color. it was ok in both respects. after another 30 minutes i restarted the engine and continued home. i watched the pressure gage for another hour and saw the pressure reading continue to fall to a dangerous level but there was nothing i could do. the next day i took the truck to the chevy dealer in el centro, ca 92243 for their analysis. they said it was only poor oil and needed changing. i let them service the truck as they wished. they also scanned (swept) the gages and changed the oil and sent me on my way. the next day it did the same thing. i did not return to the dealer as i was not prepared for an argument.

while driving, the check engine light comes on and "reduced engine power" is illuminated on the dash. stepping on the gas does nothing. the vehicle just coasts along and runs rough. i have to pull over and shut it off for a few seconds. sometimes it doesn't clear the problem right away and needs to be restarted several times. there is no rhyme or reason as to when this happens. it happens almost every day, on busy expressways or on main roads and side roads. the gas pedal loses communication with the throttle body. this is nerve wracking when driving 65 mph on the expressway and all of a sudden the vehicle wont respond to stepping on the gas pedal. trying to get over several lanes to the side of the road is dangerous when there is no acceleration. it is also bad when on a busy, main road, the vehicle "acts up". i have to pull over, blocking traffic, until i can get it going again. *tr
