Disappointed weekend -_-

Recommended Posts

New member here, how’s everyone doing with their 2019 Silverado?! 

 

I’ll start, mine took a dump this weekend while cruising on highway. “Low oil pressure turn vehicle off” light  came on  dash and  pulled over. I turned the car off immediately, step out of the vehicle to see smoke coming front grill , popped the hood and went to front of the vehicle to noticed lots of motor oil in ground :(. Car is currently at the dealer and I’m here waiting for results. 

 

I have babied the truck a lot and thats  what I get back lol. I hope is a bad oil filter sealer or some oil lines.. ;(

Sorry to hear. Oil cooler lines have been reported to leak on these. Probably what happened to you. Hopefully the engine isn’t hurt, but if a low oil pressure warning came up, I’d be a bit concerned it ran with no oil. At a minimum I’d force GM into extending the warranty...

Normally the sensors will kick in before the damage is done. This is from a mechanics perspective of dealing with sensors, etc.

Best thing he'll probably get is it documented and if something happens soon he can fight for them to back any potential issues. Documentation is the best key to getting resolution should a issue occur down the road. IF the cooler lines were loose I'd make sure it's documented on the repair invoice even if it's warrantied as this can help long term.

Wonder how much "looking" they'll do to check for various potential engine damage. Should be able to pull information from the freeze frame data that the engine code light that came on stored. Should show pressures in the engine oil, max engine or oil temp along with other parameters which will be kept on file by the dealer for warranty reimbursement purposes from GM. I'd make sure they keep the data or ask for a copy especially in case this problem starts to becoming a recurring issue, recall and/or if a class action comes out of it.

That really sucks. Sorry to hear that happened to you. I would call GM customer care and get a case number opened up, and mention how concerned you are of engine damage, ask for a district rep to be in contact with your service manager.

What could easily be done seems reasonable to me would be to get GM and the dealership to pay for a GM powertrain warranty till 100,000 miles.
