2020 Chevy Silverado Engine Problems
Many 2020 Chevy Silverado owners have reported engine related problems. Some of the complaints include the engine not starting at all, sudden engine failure, the check engine light going on intermittently and the cylinder misfiring. Also reported are excessive oil consumption and noises including knocks and pings. A few of the complaints received by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration(NHTSA) from 2020 Chevy Silverado owners with engine problems are below.
I was driving down the road, gave it gas to go around a vehicle and it felt like the vehicle shut down. ESC Caution, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, AND BRAKE WARNING/CAUTION ALL ILLUMINATED. Vehicle began to slow down drastically and if I hadn’t got off the road quickly I would have been hit. If I had been turning into traffic from a stop and that happened I would have been hit. Pulled the vehicle over, turned it completely off, removed the key, restarted the vehicle and everything went away except the check engine light. Headed to the dealership and again I gave it some gas and the same thing happened again. Pulled over, turned off/on and same results, everything cleared but check engine light. IF THIS WERE TO HAPPEN ON THE INTERSTATE THIS COULD CAUSE A MAJOR INCIDENT. I WAS ON A CITY STREET ON BOTH OCCASIONS. I had to nurse the gas pedal returning to the dealership which was about 7 miles from the initial incident. The vehicle is a 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 2.7L turbo engine. – Owner, 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 2.7L turbo engine, Georgia
The engine light has come on 3 times with a truck with only 9000 miles on it I took it to the dealership who gave me a code of P12A6 they told me Chevrolet is aware of this problem but has not come up with solution yet or even wrote a program to reflash the computer. Now I have a paper weight in my driveway and being that I live in a dual town trying to find a dealership that will fix it and provide rental car or truck. This defect can be multiple reasons with the engine harness wires chaffing or torque converter or transmission plus the whole electrical system not cranking over the truck from what I was told last time. Now I’m waiting till 7:30 to call a dealership see if they have a roll truck to pick it up and get it to a dealership where they can try to fix this problem. – Georgia Owner 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
