Then a few days later they reversed the order - with no explanation of what happened

I asked the local Chevy/GMC service manager today about the outcome. He said a recall has been issued, then something unclear about a heater circulation being involved.

Believe thats for the second block heater recall.

In doing a little research apparently there was a problem with a run of the engine blocks, all of which are cast and induction hardened in Germany. There was a flaw in some of the blocks. The stop sale was issued and about 400 of new trucks that had been sold were purchased back by GM. The defective engines were identified and the problem is fixed. I cannot verify this information is accurate but it is what I found digging into it. Rumor has it that the trucks with the defective engine block will be destroyed. If this is true, GM has stepped up and done the right thing in my opinion.

I had read on the internet that in 2023 that the Duramax diesel was being upgraded to produce more power than Ford, since they were out done in 22. I had contacted a dealer and of course I got nothing.

Has anyone heard anything?

Thank you
