Having problems with your 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 ?

2007 chevy 2500 died while driving down the road. Lights/radio still work

\015 I've had the truck for a few months, never a problem. Today (my b-day of course) I'm driving it down the road when all of a sudden I lose all power (engine cut out, power steering went away) I pull it over, pop the hood check it out. things seemed a bit warm for only traveling a few miles and it appears something on the drivers side was leaking. I touched it, smelled it, seemed like water. The coolant reservoir is on the right hand side and was just below full, oil was full and looked in good shape. Let it sit for a few minutes and it seemed to crank over for a few seconds, but would die again. any subsequent cranks were just the starter going re-ru-re-ru etc.\015\012\015\012All of the lights and radio worked fine, but I still checked the battery connections to be safe, they seemed fine. Spent 30 minutes pushing it to a side street where it was okay to park. then walked a few miles uphill home. Planning on walking back tomorrow and hoping it just over heated (which doesn't make sense to me) and that I can get it back home... but does anyone have any ideas? thanks.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 17-06-2019

Answers :

The battery light was on because the engine stopped running. The alternator was not charging the battery.
On a model that new, if the engine did overheat the computer could kill it. A stuck thermostat comes to mind. But your temp gauge should have been on the hot side.
Its also possible something locked up and is preventing the engine from cranking, such as the water pump or alternator. You may need to remove the belt to verify. If the belt is slipping it would not power the water pump to keep the engine cool.
