Certain examples of the 2022 model-year Chevy Silverado Medium Duty truck have been recalled over an issue related to the brake line pressure sensor fitting.
The problem: Navistar, which manufactures the Silverado MD on behalf of GM at its plant in Springfield, Ohio, has determined that the pressure sensor fitting on the primary hydraulic brake line assembly may not have been tightened to the correct torque specification at the factory and may therefore leak brake fluid.
The hazards: a brake fluid leak could lead to reduced braking performance and extended braking distances, increasing the risk of a crash.
The fix: dealers will be instructed to tighten the brake pressure fitting to the proper torque specification, bleed the brake system, and top-off the brake fluid. This should prevent the brake lines from leaking at the pressure sensor fitting going forward.
Affected components: pressure sensor fitting, brake fluid.
