1999 GMC Sierra 1500 Brake Line Diagram

Several automakers are facing problems related to corrosion in the brake lines. Some of them have developed parts kits to fix the issue. General Motors, for example, is investigating a recall for brake lines in 2002 and 2003 cars and trucks. The recall covers a number of different models, including the Cadillac Escalade and the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

Corrosion-related brake failures are an industrywide problem

Corrosion-related brake failures have been a recurring problem for some vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently investigating the corrosion-related brake failure in Silverados. It has received 890 consumer complaints, of which 761 were from cold-weather states. This issue has been a source of concern for years, with consumer advocate Joe Palumbo warning that corroded brake lines could cause brake failure.

Although GM is maintaining that the problem is a result of routine maintenance, it has acknowledged that corrosion-related brake failures have become an industry-wide problem. Its previous recalls have affected nearly 25 million vehicles. Subaru has recalled almost 660,000 cars for a similar problem. Subaru dealers will test the brake system and repair rust-prone areas, replacing the brake line if necessary.

In severe cases of corrosion, the brake booster and brake lines may fail completely. The driver may notice a change in the feel of the brake pedal, or hear a hissing sound. However, there have been no known crashes or injuries related to this issue.

In a recent study, the NHTSA received more complaints about GM vehicles than about other vehicles. This may be related to increased public attention on the issue. However, the corrosion-related brake failures were similar across vehicles and makes in other manufacturers.

Models under investigation include the 2002-3 Cadillac Escalade, the 1999-2003 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups

General Motors has begun a recall on certain models to fix brake and steering issues. The affected models are the 2002-3 Cadillac Escalade, the 1999-2003 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. Some owners have reported a long stopping distance when using the brake pedal. GM has not addressed this issue sufficiently.

GM rebadged the tailgate badges of the Sierra pickups in 1998. The tailgate badge of the Sierra was replaced by one that matched the brand’s Tahoe SUV. General Motors also introduced a new generation of full-size pickups for the 1999 model year. This generation replaced the fourth-generation C/K trucks introduced in 1988. GM also discontinued the C/K nomenclature and began marketing the full-size trucks under the Chevrolet and GMC brand names.

The investigation started on April 9, 2004, and closed on May 10, 2005. A federal register notice accompanied the recall. The resulting recall is expected to impact tens of thousands of vehicles. For more information, see the federal register notice enclosed in the dp05-009 public file.

In some instances, the fuel level sensor in a vehicle’s dashboard can fail. This can result in intermittent or constant errors in the gauge, which may require a replacement sensor. A new sensor will typically cost between $200 and $300 and will resolve the problem.

Cost to replace brake lines

The cost to replace 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 brake lines depends on a few factors including the type of brake line, location, and mechanic. Brake line replacement at a dealership can cost upwards of $400. Metal brake lines are more expensive than flexible brake lines. This is because they cannot be cut to fix a fallen area.

Brake lines can be expensive to replace, but are a necessary part of the vehicle. A single line can cost $100 to $200, and a complete set can cost as much as $500 or more. The cost of replacement brake lines will vary depending on the parts and labor required to complete the job.

The first step in replacing your brake lines is to consult a mechanic. A mechanic will check the brakes and determine the cause of the problem. They can then estimate the cost of a new brake line and the time it will take. In addition, they will ensure that the new brake line works properly.

One of the most common causes of brake line failure is a leak. If your car experiences this condition, check the brake fluid level and look for visible moisture and corrosion. Brake pedals that push toward the floorboard can also indicate a brake line leak.
