The wiring to the fan for the air and heater was corroded in two and we had to have it repaired, the wiring had to be replaced and a new pig tail installed. Number 5 injector failed according to computer. I ordered the fuel injector assembly from Rock auto, I ordered the entire part that included all of the injectors and the regulator. The mechanic put it on my truck and put it all back together, but when he started it to see if it was going to run good he said it started pouring gas. After calling the Chevrolet dealership he found out that on the 2006 4.3 liter motor has no return line from the injector assembly regulator to the gas tank, on some but not all of 2006 trucks. Well I could not send it back because It had been installed and gas had run through it so he had to take the injectors out of the new assembly and put it in the new assembly and he said it was very had. The mechanic did get it done and it is running as good as new.

Not sure what is wrong with the truck, it is running very rough and turning off while being driven. Black smoke coming from exhaust We were still having problems with the truck running rough and it would go dead and not start back up. The mechanic traced part of the problem to an electrical connector in the motor that regulates how rich the fuel runs and he fixed that. But he said the electrical problem that was causing the cab light to go crazy and the speedometer to read wrong and also drains the battery was something else and he would have to have the truck longer, so right now my husband puts it on the battery charger every night so it will start in the morning.

Great guy who I would highly recommend, even called me and explained everything he did and said it should take care of all of our problems. The mechanic put it back in the truck and checked everything out and so far it is running great.

The original fuel pump had been acting up ever since the truck had around 50,000 miles on it; The electric motor in it was occasionally noisy and loud when running - kind of like the sound or bad bearings (bushings) and the fuel gauge often didn't always register correctly and sometimes, not at all. I do understand that this is a very common problem with this year (2001) Silverado's. GM should have issued a recall for the fuel pump - but didn't... I replaced the pump with a brand new AC-Delco - just like the original. After a fairly short period of time the new fuel pump began acting up (gauge not registering correctly or not at all) just the same as the one I replaced it with. I've decided to just live with it rather than replace it with another pump that would be just as defective as the two previous ones are/were.....

Water pump had been leaking from around mounting surfaces for a long time and kept leaking worse as time went on. Replaced water pump and gaskets with new replacements. Also the drivers side tank of the radiator was cracked and leaking. (Don't you just love that plastic junk?) I took the radiator to a repair shop and they installed a new tank to replace the cracked one. They also rodded out the radiator and I re-installed it and have had no leaks or problems since. Replaced the belt tensioner as it's bearings were noisy. Replaced the surpentine belt idler as it's bearings were noisy. The driver's side reservoir of the radiator (which is made of plastic) developed a small crack and was leakin. A local radiator repair shop removed the old reservoir and installed a new one and rodded it out too for $85. & 1 year warranty.
