GM is recalling 1,800 model year 2007 Chevrolet Kodiak, T-Series and F-Series and H-Series passenger vehicles equipped with 7.8L diesel engine. The air compressor in some of these vehicles may not build enough air pressure to support the air brake system. If this condition were to occur while the vehicle was stationary (brakes applied), the air brakes would remain applied and prevent the vehicle from moving.
If the driver were to ignore these warnings and continue to drive the vehicle, and if there was a continued loss of pressure, the rear spring parking brakes would automatically apply, preventing the truck from being driven.
Dealers will inspect the air compressor for its ability to build air pressure, and either modify the air compressor by elimination of the suppression valve or replace the air compressor assembly free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August, 2009. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727 or at www.GMownercenter.com.
