GM Recalls 1999-2001 Chevrolet & GMC C/K Chassis Cab Vehicles

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a  recall affecting the 1999 through 2001 Chevrolet and GMC C/K Chassis Cab models.  The affected models were manufactured from June 1998 through August 2000.

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.

1,393 automobiles are affected by this recall.

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, Mfg. #00092]
