On a VW I found after 40K miles that one end of a plastic hose that blows in air to the cat when its cold was caulked to the nipple with bathroom caulk. It had never been anywhere except to the dealer for the 15 or so defects the vehicle accumulated before I sold it.

There is also a "chain of custody" for the evidence as the dealer did not find it.

Your lawn needs mowing.

Your in tank filter looks a little ragged, too.

No not really, it's to chewed up to use, and a lot of it was in strands and balls of strands on the bottom of the tank.

Just took it out for a short trip to get fuel before I went to work (in a different vehicle). I really need to drive it a while beffore I will be able to tell if there is a difference, but I am sure the fuel starvation at a quarter tank will be gone now.

Yikes!
Yeah I'd at least contact GM on your results. Just not right.
One thing for sure, if you don't, nothing more happens by them.
At least you have found something that should not be there and should run better now.

No Pablo, that is the neighbor's yard. He hasn't mowed or done any other yard or house upkeep in over 6 years. Usually I and other neighbors get sick of looking at it and mow the weeds from time to time, but I am done with that. He's not handicapped or anything, he just doesn't care.

The in tank filter when first removed looked like a lint trap from the clothes dryer. Just a matting of single red threads. I removed the bed of the truck to replace so looking down into the tank I spent a while removing all the pieces and strands I could see. I am sure there are still a few in there.

That's crazy!!!!!!
While your at it those silverado's are notorious for the fuel pump ground wire loosing ground. Get a wire wheel or something to freshen up that ground connection to the under side of the bed!
Now if GM could make a rocker panel that didn't rust away after 5 years maybe they would sell more trucks.

What brand did you replace it with? I'm looking at a Delphi fuel pump to replace the wonky Carter I have installed right now.

This had to be from the factory because the rag was smashed under the fuel pump which is spring loaded to the bottom of the tank, it coulod not have worked it's way under there. This may explain other driveability issues I have had. While under warrantee it went back to the dealer many times for rough running and lack of power but they always blew it off as "operating as designed". This is one of the reasons I will never purchase another gm vehicle. I am new to posting pictures so I hope they show up, or the link.









Call gm and ask for warranty. Ask to speak with Helene Cohen. She is a legal assistant in law dept. She will say no to your claim. Tell her that you are going to engage plaintiffs counsel and in the meantime, given that a number of attorneys in the law dept were fired, did she believe that you won't have a good chance at trial when she has to testify about her role in everything or is this the transpirency the general counsel mike Millikan was promoting? Don't ask how I know. She is a b!tch but she is predictable.

Or you can call gm's 800 number and ask for Alicia boler-Davis, who is head of quality. Explain the problem. They will do something for you. But make sure of I put old pump into a sealed bag. You need it for evidence

We had a Chrysler plant near where I live so a lot of people worked there. They had their fair share of craziness to.its all auto makers not just gm.
