All across the United States, General Motors is recalling 303,000 pickup trucks due to engine fires. Trucks affected by this recall are the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra. Both these vehicles have engine software errors that can cause the exhaust components to overheat and could cause a fire under the hood. Trucks with a 4.3-liter V6 and a 5.3-liter V8 are affected while models with 6.2-liter V8 engines are excluded. So far, GM has received a total of eight engine fires, three reported from owners. A check engine light and warning message may appear before the engine could possible catch on fire. GM also states that owners should, ā€œavoid leaving their trucks idling while unattended.ā€ This is the third and largest recall for the new trucks. The recall will start on January 16 of this year.
