 2006 chevrolet colorado 3.5 liter 4x4 fuel leak at the fuel tank where the fuel feed line connects to the fuel tank by a quick connector. this is a high pressure line and the fuel was spraying out which could have potentially caused a fire and explosion from the hot exhaust. it appears that safety is being compromised for quick assembly. complaint # 2 engine power is reduced when codes for throttle position sensor. when code is cleared or erased full power resumes. it appears that is not necessary to reduce power for this code.

 My 2006 chevrolet colorada has been at the two different dealerships and the problem is occuring. problem, is that the motor will turn over but will not start. after 10 minutes the vehicle will turn over and then start. since the dealer can't replicate no error codes are reported when connected to the computer. this happens intermittenly.

 Intermittent no starts after driving and stopping for 30 min. or so eventually re starts after several attempts has occurred 6x in 36,000 miles. *tr

 On my 2006 chevrolet colorado, the evaporation solenoid (assembly), which is mounted on the right end of the evaporation canister, is only secured on one end. there is loose play in the mount. the evaporation solenoid can move up and down, every time you hit a rough place in the road. i checked several other new 2006 colorados and one new 2007 colorado. they were all loose. the 2007 was the worse one. the solenoid is connected to the canister with plastic tubing. the canister is connected with plastic tubing to the fuel tank and engine. my fear is that the constant moving up and down could damage the solenoid valve or cause the tubing connected to it to split. releasing gasoline fumes under the truck while the engine is not running, and putting unfiltered air into engine-fuel tank when it is running. my dealer is aware of the problem, but wants to tie the solenoid assembly down. i feel that this is a factory problem and should be addressed by general motors, and not shifted back to the dealer. i will in the meantime examine other new 2007 colorados to see if the problem has already been corrected. if it has, i feel that i deserve a recall. p.s. the evaporation canister and solenoid is mounted under the truck bed, in front of the spare tire, and behind the rear axle, not too far from the fuel tank. the flopping up and down produces clunking noises , which is not good, because i know what it is.

 Truck misfiring on all cylinders since around june 2007. check engine light on some, off some. june 19 dealer said misfiring on all cylinders and they were stumped. they first guessed bad gasoline then said computer needed reconfiguring. still misfiring when i left shop. on july 19 returned to dealer. they said it was a gm problem that gm was aware of...possibly crankshaft sensor and for me to come back in two weeks. on aug 18 i took truck back to dealer after engine quit in a rolling turn in middle of intersection. dealer replaced fuel pump and spark plugs and said they thought water was in fuel. don't go back to same gas stations they said. i haven't. truck still was misfiring when i left. on 9-26 i went back to dealer. truck engine shut off while i was doing 70mph down busy interstate. made it to side of road, restarted and continued on my way. dealer said it was computer loosing communications internally and had clogged fuel injectors. left dealer and truck still misfiring. drove it for a day or two and when friend who went to lunch with me wondered if we were going to make it back from lunch i decided to call dealer. called dealer and was told it was a software problem and that gm is working on it. groan! truck is almost out of warranty and i am wondering when next time engine will quit running and under what driving conditions. thanks....roger dowdy *tr
