Gm Recall on 8.1l

Postby waterfowlhunter » Sun Nov 23, 2008 6:34 am

Well my second CPS just went out and I happened to be hunting Fish point a couple weeks ago. there was a guy there with a 2001 with the 8.1l and he was telling me about the recall. # 06083 or 07V521000.

I have been nursing this one for a few weeks now (second one) and last night I had to remove the neg battery connector and reapply power before it would start. Blowing the code for Crankshaft position sensor. I replaced it once already and is cost me $80 for the part.

This is considered a SAFETY Recall by the NHTSA but GM did not send out any recall notices on it. :huh: Seems to me that they would be required to send out notices if it is a safety issue.

Looks like the truck is heading for the shop on Monday. Aparently the new one is a completely different design and will not fail.

First one failed around 30,000 miles and the second at 50,000. :thumbsdown:
