  1. My situation is like yours. Battery was dead this morning and I boosted vehicle. I Ran truck for about 10 minutes. Shut it off and it restarted but I could tell it was ragging a little bit. Drove 200 km. Shut truck off for about two hours. Turned key and it barely started. It was then that the "service trailer brake system" warning showed up. Turned truck off to see if it would reset. Turned key on and it barely started. Drove about 20 minutes. Shut truck off and tried to restart about 10 minutes later and battery completely dead. Dismissed the warning. Drove home 20

  3. I really appreciate your help dgrover....very helpful comments...as most of these types of forums are. Mr 2017SierraSLT, tks for the catch can comment...I will have to look into that.

Now getting 11.7 miles per gallon us. That's ridiculous!! I was surprised that you said it broke your heart to sell it. But like you I will trade/sell it if it is not resolved and it will break my heart as well.
  5. Just wanted to drop a line that I posted a msg to your thread about "Sudden loss of fuel economy-2014 Chevy Silverado 5.3.  Hopefully you are notified when there is a new posting to that thread...but in case not I am hoping your msg board will prompt a response...

    tks

  6. I am having the very same problem. Did you feel like no one was listening....including your dealership? A key point to your issue was that you had not changed your driving conditions or behaviour and under the exact same driving conditions and circumstances you had a major drop in fuel mileage. For me after my first oil change the fuel mileage dropped by 75 percent under the exact same driving conditions. I got the winter fuel, vehicle idling longer under warm up, lower temperature etc run around as well. But no one seemed to hear me when I told them that under the identical conditions my
