Recalled: 1999-2000 Chevy C/K and GMC C/K Chassis Cab

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today released a list of auto safety recalls announced in November and December 2000 and urged consumers to have the problems fixed promptly. General Motors Corporation

Models: Chevrolet C/K Chassis Cab Years: 1999-2001 GMC C/K Chassis Cab Years: 1999-2001

Number Involved: 1,393

Dates of Manufacture: June 1998 - August 2000

Defect: On some of these vehicles, either or both of the two body pressure relief valves (PRV) may not seal and could become inoperative during the life of the vehicle if the body installed on the vehicle does not protect the PRV from road debris. If a PRV does not seal, exhaust fumes could enter into the passenger cab and could cause possible illness, unconsciousness, or death.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the vehicle to ensure that the PRVs are protected by the body of the vehicle. If the PRVs are not protected by the body, the dealer will install new shielded PRVs. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was to begin during January 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-6537. [NHTSA Recall No. 00V404/GM Recall No. 00092]
