Gas Odor Leak - 2015 Chevy Tahoe

30

Asked by Feb 07, 2017 at 09:42 PM about the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe LT RWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last week I started smelling gas from the
inside of my 2015 Chevy Tahoe. It has 51k
miles and thought this was strange. Took it
to my mechanic and he said it was the fuel
feed line. I went to Chevy to get the part
but they didn't have it so mechanic did a
quick patch until part comes in. So
yesterday my truck wouldn't turn on and
gas flushing down like water. Had it towed
to Chevy dealership. I'm passed my 36k
bumper to bumper warranty and I didn't
purchase an extended warranty. It's going
to cost me $462. Chevy dealer knew this
was a huge safety concern so they gave
me a rental on them. I'm planning to
approach Chevy to negate the $462 as this
is a safety issue and shouldn't be
happening on a 2015 vehicle. Any
thoughts?

If you are not too far past the warranty mileage they may give you a good will repair.

Powertrain warranty is 5years or 100,000 miles. You're still in warranty! So let the Chevy Dealer fix it for free. HTH. -Jim

They might do it out of good will, but fuel lines are not part of the powertrain warranty. It might be a 2015 but you do have 51,000 miles on it. Per GM: "Excluded from the powertrain coverage are sensors, wiring, connectors, engine radiator, coolant hoses, coolant and heater core. Coverage on the engine cooling system begins at the inlet to the water pump and ends with the thermostat housing and/or outlet that attaches to the return hose. Also excluded are the entire pressurized fuel system (in-tank fuel pump, pressure lines, fuel rail(s), regulator, injectors and return line) as well as the Engine/Powertrain Control Module and/or module programming."

If this is an EVAP system problem it's covered by the emission control warranty. HTH. -Jim

What's an evap system? Sorry for my ignorance.

The EVAP system pulls gasoline vapors from the gas tank to the engine to be burned instead of being released into the atmosphere. Don't be sorry for not knowing. That's why we're here. To help. HTH. -Jim

Thanks Js08016, I looked the emission control warranty, appears it looks like it's up to 24,000 or 2 years at point of sale of original owner. Since I have 51k, look like I missed this warranty. I just feel since it was the fuel feed line and a 2 year old vehicle at 51k miles, with a malfunction part, Chevy should cover the bill of $462.00. If I would have died, my wife could have sued Chevy. It's not like I bumped a curve or damaged the vehicle. I think it was nice of them to give me a loaner until they locate the part but due to the safety concern, it seems like they would cover the charges.

You're welcome. Glad to help. That really stinks about the warranty! I thought it would be covered!! That is nice of the dealer to give you the loaner. At least that's something! -Jim

My 2015 is in at the dealership for the same thing right now. They are charging the exact same amount. We have 70,000 miles on ours and have an extended warranty but only metal components are covered from what we were told today. They told us to keep our paperwork and contact Chevrolet about it because it should not be happening.

Contact GM executive team customer service. They were able to assist me. It took 2 weeks since the part was on a national back order

The same incident happened to me over this Memorial Day weekend. Basically, a pin hole was rubbed into the fuel line by the undercarriage. Warranty or not, this is a major safety defect. I have filed a complaint with GM and expect full reimbursement, including alternate transportation expenses. NTSA should order a recall.

This just happened to us with 53,000 miles 2015 Chevy Suburban....Dealer said $600. Was advised to file complaint with NTSB and GM.

It just happened to me- don't know for sure but they think fuel tank module? 2015 Tahoe with 75000 miles. Estimate is $1000 !!!!

Just happened to me on my 2015 Yukon with 128k miles. National backorder on the hose. Part #84200271. This doesn't sound right for this new of a vehicle..
