General Motors Recalls 55,000 Trucks, and SUVs for Fuel Pump Failures, & Separating Axles

March 1, 2023

General Motors provides four separate recalls. These recalls covered eight of its SUV models, and truck models for cases regarding the half-shaft and fuel pump failure. In total, the four campaigns involve more than 55,000 vehicles spread out over three trademarks and 6 model years.


Fuel Pump Failure

Again, we have numerous vehicles being placed for the same issues, but in this situation, they are a bit different. The first of these recalls cover the 2022 GMC Terrain and also covers the 2021-2022 Chevy Equinox. General Motors says a supplier-initiated difference may have led to fuel pumps shipping with inferior clearances to permit the specified flow of fuel, indicating the pump could starve the engine. In some circumstances, the cars may not start. Chevy will replace the units in query with precisely specified pumps.

The second recall covers a relatively specific cross-section of General Motor’s HD truck lines. Sierra HD and 2017-2019 Silverado trucks sold with a dual-tank and a diesel engine configuration may have shipped with a rear fuel pump that is susceptible to degrading by debris, stopping fuel from properly moving to the front tank, or, in severe circumstances, resulting in a collapse of the rear tank. This problem can lead to incorrect/ unstable fuel tank readings, engine hesitation, failure to start, and a check-engine light.

Axle Separation

For Axle Separation, there are four models i.e. 2023 Cadillac XT5, 2023 GMC Acadia, 2023 Chevy Traverse, and 2023 Chevy Blazer. 

In every situation, a diminutive number left the factory with half-shaft assemblies that may have been skipping the retention rings that retain them in place, perhaps permitting the axles to sever or eject from the transmission. In the situation of the Acadia, and XT5, it’s the right-side axle community and Chevy dealers.
