In this video we show the step by step process for changing the high pressure fuel pump on Cliff's 2014 Silverado with the 5.3L EcoTec V8. This issue is related to fault codes Powertrain P0172 and Powertrain P0175. The exact issue is fuel being blown past the HP fuel pumps seals and into the crank case which contaminates the motor oil. If left uncorrected, this can damage internal components as the oil will break down due to the fuel and lose its lubricating ability. ?? LINKS TO PURCHASE TOOLS & PARTS FEATURED BELOW?? A quick indicator that the fuel pump is likely at fault is a smell of fuel when removing the oil dipstick. The high pressure fuel pump failure was verified by a local dealer by monitoring the fuel trim levels. I was very surprised to find out this the high pressure fuel pump is not covered by the factory power train warranty. Especially since it is literally driven by the camshaft, directly affects the health of the motor, and the codes literally read "POWERTRAIN". GM really should get their act together since this appears to be such a common problem. Note that the fault code did clear itself after a few starts of the truck. Fortunately, this is a pretty straight forward job that only requires basic tools. The process showed in this video should be identical on 2014 through 2018 Silverados and Sierras with the 5.3L EcoTec V8 These steps should also be very similar to other GM models with the 5.3L, 6.0L, and 6.2L such as the Tahoe, Suburban, and Escalade.

Gas in engine oil
Cory G posted a topic in 2014-2018 Silverado & Sierra TroubleshootingHi there, So I ride a 18 Sierra 1500 with the 5.3L and keep getting gas in my oil, my high pressure fuel pump let go in March of 2019 (40000kms ish) and was the first time I got gas in the oil, they replaced it and it was good until late December of 2019, I drove 800 kms to home, parked at the restaurant and went to go home and got a bunch of codes, saying that bank was to lean, bank 1 to rich, bank 2 to lean, bank 2 to rich and a open circuit fault code. The truck was in limp mode but got it to the dealership, they found a short to a relay for the hp fuel pump and my crank case filled with gas (same as the last time but now the truck at 69000kms) they tested the O2’s, fuel injectors, injector cycles and such, they all passed the test so they figured the hp fuel pump went, so they replaced it. I then drove not even 3000kms and my truck was doing 33L/100kms downhill at 104km/h, no codes or engine lights. Checked the oil and it was over filled and smelled of gas, brought into the dealership and they said the Intake tube after the MAF was loose causing the engine to over fuel, now not even 2000kms (3 weeks) into the dealership “fixing” the issue, my oil is over filled and smells strong like gasoline. Any ideas on what the issue could be? I don’t want to keep paying for an oil change every 2-3000kms and 100$ deductible for my extended warranty. I know it’s not healthy for the engine and GM Canada won’t do anything about it.. Any ideas as to what the issue might be would be awesome, thanks
