The Sierra and its Chevy Silverado twin were redesigned and much improved for 1999. Engines are smaller but more powerful and economical, and the interior feels spacious. Braking and handling are also better. Four-door extended-cab versions are the only extended-cab pickups with decent rear seats. Four-wheel-drive models offer an Autotrac system that can remain engaged all the time.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Brakes

Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.

What Owners Say

Antilock system (ABS)

"The front brake calipers have an ABS sensor in them that gets corroded causing the ABS to engage when it is not needed making it very difficult to stop. This is a flaw in this and a few other year models of GMC and GM trucks and it is very expensive to fix. I just use this truck as a farm truck since I got a new truck so I 'fixed' the problem by pulling the 60 amp fuse that controls the ABS. The brake light stays on, but the vehicle stops much better now."

Keith W., NE (2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 5.3-L V8)

"caused a delay in braking in parking lots with almost several low speed collisions"

Anonymous, MB (2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 5.3-L V8)

"The master brain of the ABS failed, its cost to repair is estimated to be $2000, also an ABS hub wire broke and that is another $250.My mechanic said these are rather common problems on these trucks"

Engine knock or ping

"Replaced knock sensors"

Anonymous, AL (2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 5.3-L V8)

"My engine is the 5.3L and has developed the piston rattle problem that this engine was notorious for. I have to let it warm up a little and then drive slowly for about a quarter of a block, or until it shifts into 2nd gear, to avoid the ugly noise. This problem is directly attributable to piston to wall clearances when the engine was built."

Anonymous, OR (2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 5.3-L V8)

"Head gaskets needed replaced"

Karen K., CO (2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT)

"I noticed loss of oil in 2019 which was progressively getting worse. I took it to a local shop to get a cost on repairing it. Initially the estimate was approximately $1100.00 and figured on replacing the rear main seal. When I had the repair work done the main leak was determined to be in a different location that required the transmission to be decoupled from the engine and resealed the rear engine cover. While the area was accessible the rear main seal and camshaft sensor were also replaced. The valve covers and oil coolers gaskets were also replaced."

IF THE TIRES ARE OVER-INFLATED, IT COULD REDUCE THE TREAD LIFE OF THE TIRE AND INCREASE SUSCEPTIBILITY TO ROAD HAZARD DAMAGE. IF SUDDEN AIR LOSS OR A ROAD HAZARD CAUSES DAMAGE TO A TIRE, CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE COULD BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED AND COULD RESULT IN A VEHICLE CRASH.
Summary:
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: CERTAIN 2-WHEEL DRIVE PICKUP TRUCKS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH REQUIREMENTS OF FMVSS NO. 120, "TIRE SELECTION AND RIMS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES OTHER THAN PASSENGER CARS." THE PROBLEM WAS CAUSED BY A COMPUTER ERROR THAT RESULTED IN THE CERTIFICATION LABEL LISTING TIRE SIZE AND INFLATION PRESSURE INFORMATION THAT DIFFER FROM THE TIRE SIZE AND THE INFLATION PRESSURE INFORMATION FOR THE TIRES ON THE VEHICLE. IF THE VEHICLE OWNER OR SOMEONE SERVICING THE VEHICLE INFLATES THE TIRES ACCORDING TO THE PRESSURE SPECIFIED ON THE LABEL VERSUS THE APPROPRIATE PRESSURE FOR THE TIRES, THE TIRES COULD BE UNDER-INFLATED OR OVER-INFLATED DEPENDING ON THE TIRES MOUNTED ON THE VEHICLE.
What should you do:
OWNERS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A NEW LABEL AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS. HOWEVER, A DEALER CAN INSTALL THE LABEL IF THE OWNER SO DESIRES. OWNER NOTIFICATION BEGAN MAY 31, 2001. OWNERS WHO DO NOT RECEIVE THE LABEL AND INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-222-1020 OR GMC AT 1-800-462-8782.
