2016-2018 Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana: Recall Alert

2018 Chevrolet Express 2500
By Patrick Masterso

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30,000 model-year 2016-18 Chevrolet Express and GMC Sierra vans equipped with a single, manual rear climate control module

The Problem: If the temperature is set to maximum heat or the mode knob is set to maximum floor vent and an electrical short occurs, components within the climate control module may overheat, increasing the risk of a fire in the vehicle's headliner.

The Fix: Dealers will remove the electrical insulation from a wiring connector within the climate control module to remove the fire risk for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet and GMC manufacturer GM did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

That is some funny sarcasm and all but how is it that you know for fact about the guys working on vehicles repair so many 4.6L motors?? Did you own a 4.6L? did you work in a shop? Or in typical gm shill fashion you are just jumping on what every other gm shill says? I have owned a 4.6l 2v and have worked at a shop (i dont have to "talk to guys") and I cant say that 4.6L 2v motors didnt have ANY problems but they are durable long lasting motors.

@ frank

Get a grip and have a conversation with out insulting. Your pathetic

@ full size

A pushrod is way easier to work on than a modular, less moving parts. Less complicated. Last longer. Period!

Mechanics say modular motors are a headache to work on. There are shops around country that won't touch a 4.6L and 5.4L.

tntOnline almost told he truth one time but lied his way out of it.


1. did you ever put more than 100k miles on a 4.6 2v?
2. how many of those plastic intake manifolds did you have to install?

The 4.6 and 5.4 are legendary Ford examples of biting off more than you can chew. Ditto for the outsourced diesels.

Members of my extended familiy owned a Ford/Lincoln/Mercury dealership in the midwest from the 1950s to the early 2000s. Every Thanksgiving dinner was a long conversation about the hassles they had with service issues, mostly starting around 1997 or so. Up through the mid nineties the Fords led the way. After that it was a disaster.

@ "SPL" it".....watch the movie...you'll understand name!

This coming from a "guy" or "woman" who uses multiple user names and drives an escort! Yet, "it" is on a truck site talking trash when "it' has no input on trucks bc " it" doesn't have drive one.

Plus, idk if "it" even knows what the truth is....especially when "it" doesn't even know "its" name. Very sad!

@ tntonline You are the Michael Jackson worshiping pervert. That has no business on a truck site. Or most any other for that matter.

That's the best comeback you have 'it"?

Everyone knows you twisted my words around, plus, they told you to shut it!!! Yet, you dont know the truth, so you spew your non sense.....

BTW....atleast I drive a truck, and commenting on a truck forum.

Something you (it) can not say! Poor "it"

Go to a car forum and have a ball talking about your diesel escort! Enjoy yourself "IT"

Make sure to only use one name though.....not your SPLIT names: Just the Truth, Frank in Florida, Frank, Brick, Hoodwink Harry, or the countless other already used usernames from this forum which you have corrupted!....You leach!!

@ tntonline Run your mouth all you want. I will post what I want when I want and there is nothing you can do about it. You are like a whiny 14 year old. You disrespect your father and you father-in-law but you defend Michael Jackson. That is a perverted way to be .

@ SPL"it"

First off, your the immature one here twisting words. We all see it so you can't run from it and others have told you that you did so move on!

Second, talking about how the other side of my family loves Fords, and are die hard Ford's fans, and that they would rather walk than drive anything else... Isnt disrespecting them. Does our family heckle each. Absolutely! But, I love all of them. Just bc you "it" dont have anyone in your family you can talk to bc your all alone doesnt mean ALL families are like you "it".

Third, please seek immediate help with your split personality/usernames. I could help, but have taken my free offer away. Other places out there will help you. You just have to have the courage, look yourself in the mirror, find the TRUTH deep inside you and do it. Good look "IT"!!!! Its all up to you " IT".

@ Imposter TNTGMC...aka SPL"it"

You think the Hummer was a flop? What did Ford have to contend with it. It sold like cash cows when they first released.

As for the GTO. Well those 3 years in production it beat the halo mustang. Ford had no answer for it. GM in my opinion should have kept Pontiac around. That was a great car and had fantastic road manners.

Aztek and Cadillac, yes were huge flops. Agree with you there. The idea of the Aztek was cool, but they were hideous to look at.

The XUV envoy was an idea like the Avalanche but for an SUV, cool thinking but didn't grab hold of public.

The SSR was a great looking truck for its time. GM messed up by not putting in the 6.0L right away with a tremec 6 spd. Plus, the hard top bed cover made it difficult to pull or put stuff inside bc it only opened up like 2 ft.

Would you look at that list.
