General Motors accused of producing cars that are incompatible with fuel from AmericaAugust 22, 2019
The car concern was sued by the owners of the car, which will soon be considered by the Detroit court.
The car manufacturer received high-profile accusations due to fuel problems. The owners of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, in which a 6.6 liter Duramax diesel engine were installed, were injured. Car owners are confident that in 2010-2016 the concern produced cars in which it is impossible to use American diesel fuel.
Already on August 7, the Detroit court took the matter to consideration. The victims claim that due to differences in the density of American fuel from European, air cavities form in the car’s air pump.
From this it follows that the components of the pump begin to rub against each other, due to which small metal chips are formed. After the latter enters the fuel, problems arise with the engine. According to car owners, the engine stops working quite sharply and cannot be started due to the destruction of engine components and the injection system.
Currently, a group of dissatisfied GM car owners consists of eight people. They are sure that such a malfunction is present on a huge number of cars.
