Someone else will chime in, but I believe there's a recall on this.

I called my local chevy dealer, they said I have no recall under my VIN. For them to see the leak they gonna have to drop the gas tank. I'm pretty sure they going to charge me for this. So I would rather do the work myself. GM wants $400 for a new pump assembly. Trying to see if I can find one cheaper, or maybe used.

While you can certainly pursue that route if necessary, I would escalate your request and push a bit harder. This is a legitimate safety concern.

Chevy Customer Service want to chime in?

I have a letter from gm that came in the mail that says to show it when this problem occurs and they have to honor it as warranty work. Haven't yet with this or the ignition one.

Think its a silent recall. Call another dealer and really push for it.

If you go the used route call local junk yards. Shouldn't be more than $150 for a used pump/sending unit. I sell them for $75 usually, but have none currently :(
