Hey ranchonodinero if you want to get it resolved you need to call the gm warrenty hotline and have the service manager at your local dealer call them as well. They should fix your truck if it meets the criteria. Did you have the dealer v2 for flow and return rates? It took me a month or so of calling and finally my service manager called gm and was told that gm would cover the parts. Hope that helps a little.

I just had my injectors replaced under "warranty", also only had to pay labor, about $1700. Now I am just wondering what to do next? Air dog 165 or second cp3 pump? Any suggestions?

I was so pissed I left the dealership and haven't been back; not even for routine service. If I don't get raped on a trade, I am saying adios to GMC and the duramax and hello to a Toyota. If the trade doesn't go well, then I suppose I'll see about getting the injectors fixed and selling it. I'd be pretty darn happy if they had offered to pay parts and have me pay labor but they didn't do that.

This confuses me, maybe I am reading too far into it. My truck (2002 6.6L) has 103k miles on it. Does this still apply or is my truck too old? I'm thinking I'm out of the 7yr period.

too old...you are about 3 years outside the period. There shouldn't be any trucks covered under this policy anymore...although you might get a dealer to do a good faith fix.

Crap, ok. Well I hope I don't run into any issues...then again it seems like 90% of people do. We'll see.

It won't be easy but with only 103k miles if you find the right dealership they will do it. Mine were covered based on my mileage of 120k. Just had to pay labor.

Wish I would have found this site several years ago. Was having smoke issues and then got the "service warranty" in the mail. Took it to the Chevy dealer in Monahans TX (the closest at 120 miles). they told me that 4 injectors were bad butthey did not meet the criteria for the warranty. The cost to repair was going to be 3500 bucks. Not knowing any better I called Chevy and finally got them to agree to split the cost. I was out 1700 and they had the truck for 3 weeks. When I picked the truck up I drove it 150 miles and it blew up. I had the dealer pick it up and he told me the fuel pump went out and it cost me another 1300 to get my truck back. That POS got his money out of me. Now it is smoking again and I am not sure what to do. I don't know if it is the injectors again or someone said it was the rings.
