Fuel Injector Pump Catastrophe
Has this been a common malfunction in LMM's. Recently, my 2008 with 45,000 miles would not start. Towed to the dealership for what I hoped was just air in the fuel line. Wrong. It appears the fuel filter housing/system wasn't getting fuel to the injector pump. Therefore, metal shavings from the pump was introduced to the entire fuel system. Needless to say, replacing and flushing the fuel system which includes fuel filter/housing, injector pump, injectors, fuel rail/lines and drain/flush the tank is $15K. Contacted GM to see whether they would bear some of the cost due to defects in materials. Unfortunately, the age of the truck nullified any support. Don't get me wrong, I've had a smile on my face since day 1 owning this tow vehicle but this surely puts a damper on it. For GM to put the burden of this cost on the consumer is absurd and not for the lack of maintenance.
