General Motors has issued a recall on 2014 Chevrolet Silverado models and GMC Sierra pickup trucks for overheating components that could result in engine fires. The 303,000 recalled vehicles have 4.3-liter and 5.3-liter engines. The automaker has reported of at least eight fires resulting from faulty software that overheats the exhaust components.
Owners may be warned about the overheating issue by a continuous “check engine light” or “engine power reduced” warning message. If the truck seems to run rough after ignition it could also be a sign of overheating.
GM will notify owners and will reprogram the software at no cost. In the meantime, owners are warned not keep the trucks running unattended.
