#356 of 365 Re: 2004 Duramax No Start [weephee]
Sep 28, 2012 (5:59 pm)
Truck has now been at the dealers for 3 weeks and still no start. Gave them another ECM which they programmed and it made no difference. BTw the voltage on the injectors is 48 volts. They also did a fuel by-pass on the two injector rails and the results were within GM tolerances so that isn't the problem. Now they want to remove a few injectors and have them tested to see if that might be the problem. When they did the by-pass test there were a lot of air bubbles entering the injectors. I think they might be coming from the fuel filter hand pump so I've ordered a gasket set to replace the 0-rings. Also replacing the water collector at the bottom of the fuel filter. Is anyone interested in what is happening here. If I don't hear from someone, I guess I will quit reporting.

Hi drjones1235. The only thing that we might have in common on these trucks is that my clockspring is broken so I get an airbag trouble code and the steering wheel buttons do not work. Are you getting any trouble codes. Is your truck at a gm dealer I will change the clock spring this weekend and see if that makes a difference although I can't see why. Let me know if you make any progress.
#359 of 365 Duramax low oil pressure
Mar 02, 2013 (7:38 am)
My 2003 Chevrolet Duramax shows low oil pressure on the gauge after it warms up. I have no power loss, it doesn't ping or knock, no smoke at all. Everything seems fine, but this oil pressure issue freaks me out. How/ where do I check it with a gauge?
#360 of 365 Duramax with broken Crankshaft at 8000 mi
Aug 16, 2013 (10:57 am)
We have a 2005 Seneca motorhome with Duramax that we bought from a Chevy dealership in May 2013. It only had 8000 miles on it, which is not unusual for a motorhome because it is not a daily driver. However, there was not warranty becuase it is 8 years old. We have put just over 600 miles on it and the last trip out the crankshaft broke in half. It had to be towed and needs a new engine to the tune of $13K! GM is claiming no responsibility. Has anyone ever experienced this kind of breakdown on a Duramax especially with so few miles on it? We truly thought this motor would last "forever".

I have never heard of this problem, yet it concerns me, I know of several D-max's that have well over 150 K and still run very strong. I would be checking vin #s to make sure every thing matches and that was the original motor for that vehicle. Something doesn't sound right. I wish I had a better response for you, but I wish you the best of luck. Please let us know, (the readers) how you make out,

#364 of 365 Electrical mystery
Oct 03, 2013 (5:13 pm)
2005 GMC Sierra HD2500 - the heater motor only works on high speed, when it's on lower speeds the abs and brake light come on in the dash and service brake system warning scrolls across dash. And the same lights and warning come on when 4 wheel drive is activated. Anyone seen this before or have any suggestions?

If it's the ac/heater fan motor, there is a recall on the wiring harness. I also have an 05. Could catch on fire.
