I have a 05 GMC Sierra totally stock with the 5.3 I think v8 motor. So this is my issue, I have magnetic flakes in my fuel that somehow got past my fuel filter and into my fuel rail and has now clogged my injectors. I have cleaned up the fuel rail and tops of injectors and it runs a lot better. I have 28k miles so its still underwarrenty. The CEL went on after filling up gas at a Sunoco station, and took it to the dealer and they said it was misfire in #2,7. They sampled the gas at the fuel rail and said it was diesel. My receipt says regular and has now been over a month ago that I filled up. The truck runs just it idles a little rough and the CEL is still on. It blinks when I'm trying to merge on the highway or speed up. I'm dealing with the insurance company for the station, but they claim it's not them...they are going to test the gas and the station to verify. Dealer says it's the gas, although they did notice themselves that it had flakes of crap in it. They made a claim it was diesel based on look and smell of it. They just didn't want to work on it. I've had issues with both places to get anything to happen. Does anyone have a clue what I can do to fix this. The injectors my guess are clogged still because after I cleaned them and the fuel rail it runs a lot better. Washing them is 30-40 each for all 8. Then I need to findout if the fuel filter which is built into the fuel pump on this truck failed, but I'm not allowed to drop it if I want the dealer to cover it. I'm kinda screwed either way, but I need some help on this.
