when pouring out filter thin scraps collected at bottom of jar - no sign of any diesel fuel either - just gas
GMC Mechanic: Kevin, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Ok then unfortunatly its not good news the recommendation in this situation is to replace everything fuel system related.the tank all pipes low pressure,filter,fuel rail and sensors injectors ,high pressure pipes .everything

I would think taking it even further - I'm concerned about engine running off gas for about a week - exhaust over cooking gas that long - even egr sys - plus any gasket thought out the whole cycle - big gas company on the hook for this - I want everything addressed - even dealer seems soft footing this repair like its a 10 year old diesel and a drunk Friday mistake - looking to give tank a bath - blow lines - and fill her up

Sorry i missed the question ,do you want a cheap fix or are you asking if anything else is likely to be damaged

my question is wouldn't the damage continue thru engine - exhaust - and even further problems down the road?
GMC Mechanic: Kevin, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Its unlikely that further damage in system would be caused if it were my vehicle and someone else was at fault i would want every part of fuel system replaced.the problem you have is system is now contaminated with metal filings if every single metal filing is not removed over a period of time they will get back through system and score the bearings inside fuel pump causing more filings and putting you bavk to square one .
