Chevy has issued a recall on certain models of its 2012-2013 Silverado HD and Sierra HD vehicles. Only versions of the truck that came with the 6.6L diesel engine and dual fuel tanks are covered in the recall. The problem in the vehicles is that the transfer pump moving fuel from the rear tank to the front could malfunction.

If the pump did malfunction, the fuel gauge could give drivers an inaccurate reading. GM says that if the trucks unexpectedly stall, it could up the risk of crash.

GM plans to begin notifying owners of affected vehicles and replacing the pump if necessary. The repairs will be made free of charge. There is no indication on exactly when the recall repairs will get underway.
