My 02' Duramax suffered the from the injector seal problem on July 13th. It sat until I took it to the dealer, on July 19th. The new injectors are hard to get. I borrowed 2 trucks for the next 2 weeks , to cut lawns. I finally got the dealer to rent me a truck on July 26th. The rental truck is costing the dealer $60 a day ,and 25 cents a mile. The dealer called me up and wants to put a new set of the old style injectors in, because the rental is costing them a lot of money. They said that when the new re-designed injectors arrive, then they would replace the injectors again. I told them that this would talk to my GM rep. at the GM plant were a work my daytime job on monday.

aug 18, and you get a brand new truck at least in ohio if a dealer has any new vehical over 30 days in a yrs time you have a choice of $$$ back and I mean all of it or a new vehical its the ohio lemon law. The federal law that affect the purchase of a vehical is called the mageneson moss act which act as a sort of back up to each states lemon law so an attorney can get them on federal laws if state laws fail. Went through it a couple yrs ago and its a piece of cake

what about all of the injector and turbo problems Ford has been having with their new 6.0 PSD? I have heard plenty of accounts of injectors failing and filling the crankcase with huge amounts of diesel fuel, which leads to engines being damaged or destroyed. Any Ford guys care to elaborate on this? :rolleyes:

It's funny how a thread with a legitimate question or problem often deteriorates into a useless Ford vs. Chevy (or Dodge) debate. Maybe these adolescents will grow up someday. Anyway, I think olderthandirt is on to something with that 30 day thing. I think the real reason that they want you to drive the truck with the old injectors is to keep your truck from being in their shop for that 30 days. I'd tell them to stick it, they can keep the truck until it's fixed.

Buy a Ford? Its hard to turn down that fat GM discount! By the way, the rental truck is an 04' Ford turbo diesel. Its pretty nice!

The rental truck that the GMC dealer is paying for is a FORD? I love it.
I wouldn't let them slide, make them fix your truck correctly before you accept it back. Tell them, "I'm kinda likein' that Ford..." That'll go right up their "you-know-what."

Sweet! Only 9 more days out of service and you can make them buy the SOB back from you. Seriously though, I hope they got the trouble fixed and you'll be happy with your truck. Right now I'm running an '84 Chevy 3/4 ton and I'd be happy with any of the new ones.....

FORD backwards: Driver Returns On Foot :D

Yes, GM does have a problem with these injectors, but at least they are making it right and uping the warranty on them to 10 yrs/200,000 miles. I believe that is right, please correct me if I am wrong.

If I were you, I would start associating with people that werenít so close-minded.
