Almost 500,000 pickup trucks and SUVs could have a faulty transmission oil cooler line.

| April 2, 2014

General Motors will recall almost 500,000 late model pickup trucks and large sport-utility vehicles to fix a potential oil leak.

The automaker also said it will resume selling certain Chevrolet Cruze sedans it had pulled from the market last week after inspecting a potentially defective axle part.

The truck recall includes 490,200 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and 2015 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

GM said some of the vehicles may have a transmission oil cooler line that is not securely seated in its fitting. This could cause a transmission oil leak that could lead to a fire. GM is aware of three such incidents but no injuries.

Owners will need to take their vehicles to a GM dealer, where mechanics will inspect the fittings for leaks and make any needed repairs.
