00V258001
Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles were built with incorrect payload information on the vehicle certification label. The payload shown on the label is greater than the maximum validated payload. If the vehicle is loaded to the incorrectly labeled payload, it may not ride and handle in the manner that the driver expects. This could result in a loss of control of the vehicle or an inability to stop the vehicle within expected stopping distances.
Owners will be sent a new label for installation on the driver's door of the vehicle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 18, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free label within a reasonable time should contact GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.

Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles have loose or missing rear wheelhouse plugs. Under certain vehicle operating conditions, exhaust gases can flow forward and accumulate in the rear wheelhouse. These gases could flow into the passenger compartment if the plug is missing or loose and could cause possible illness, unconsciousness, or death.
Dealers will inspect the vehicle for loose or missing wheelhouse plugs and install new plugs if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 16, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

00V345
Certain light duty pickup trucks and sport utility vehicles have a clearance between the front right-hand brake pipe and the body cross sill that could decrease to the point of allowing contact. If contact occurs and the brake pipe becomes damaged, there can be a loss of brake fluid and pressure. The brake warning lamp will be activated when the brake fluid lever reaches the indicator limit. During braking, the pedal will be lower than normal and stopping distances will be longer. If this occurs when stopping distance is limited, a crash could occur.
Dealers will inspect the front right-hand brake pipe for wear. If there are signs of wear, this section of the brake pipe will be replaced with a new designed brake pipe section. If there are no signs of wear on the brake pipe, the dealer will install a spacer clip to ensure sufficient clearance between the brake pipe and the body cross sill. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during December 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

00V055
On certain light duty trucks equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes, the Antilock Brake System (ABS) motor contains an out-of-specification spring clip. This clip could allow the motor bearing to become misaligned. If misalignment occurs, eventually the ABS would be non-functional. The base brakes would remain fully functional, but the Dynamic Rear Proportioning (DRP) system, which optimizes front to rear brake balance, would become inoperative, increasing the likelihood of a crash.
Dealers will replace the brake pressure module valve assembly. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification will begin during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
