    This relates to a service bulletin issued December 3, 2003. It affects certain KL6 and KL8 Silverados and Sierra 3/4 trucks. The problem is that the throttle and/or cruise control cable could rub on the CNG delivery line causing the fiber covering to wear away and finally causing the hose to fail. This CNG line is a flexible fabric covered hose. If there is any damage to the hose, it must be replaced. If the hose isn't damaged a kit is available to restrain the cables from hitting the hose. The kit is--Isolator Kit (P/N 52372871). I wouldn't get too excited about the kit---it's a couple of tie-wraps used to hold the throttle and cruise control cables from hitting the hose by tying them to a bolt on the firewall . Any dealer can pull up the bulletin #03053 which has illustrations of what to look for and what to do. If you see the tie-wraps on your truck, the recall has been done. The dealer can also check by V.I.N. to see if you vehicle needs the recall and if so, if it has been done.
