CHEVY FUEL TANK COLLAPSED

1998 Chevrolet Silverado

Other Category problem
1998 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 147313 miles

The fuel tank collapsed on our 1998 truck. We had a new tank, fuel pump, fuel tank cap and purge valve replaced. We have driven about 2,000 miles and the tank is starting to collapse again. This is to expensive to do all of this again. We need help to know what to do. We had all of the repairs done at a Chevrolet Agency. Need answer as soon as possible

Evidently they didn't do the job correctly and I would take it back and tell them to fix it again at their cost as you have already paid for it to be fixed and it was not fixed correctly. There is a vent problem either with the purge system could be a clogged return line. Or could be something not hooked up. The fuel pump is pulling pressure out of the tank but you have no return pressure and this is causing the tank to collapse. Make them fix it or take them to small claims court.
