Do I need a $ 11,000 fuel System

My truck used 2 fuel filters in less than 2,000 miles I installed the 3rd filter hooked up to my 12,000 fifth wheel, drove 30 miles and the fuel filter light went on again. being mechanically challenged I took it to a chevy dealer. he installed $3,200 in fuel injectors on 1, 3, 5, Cylinders . I left for Phoenix pulling the 5ver. Got 400 miles and replaced a fuel filter, outside Albuquerque NM it quit running towed to a chevy dealer. He says I need $ 11,000 in fuel injector pump, rails and all the injectors. he said the fuel pump shed metal They primed it and the truck started.
What is your opinion do i need all the parts??

I think you need to find a new dealer that doesnt have a service department filled with morons.

$3200 for 3 fuel injectors installed is absolutely absurd. $11k for a whole new fuel system is equally ridiculous. You could buy a whole new crate motor from GM for $11k. And they want to charge you $11k just to put a new CP3, fuel rails, and injectors in it???

that does not sound right. What kind of air filter are you running? That could set codes and cause fuel filter life to drop but not sure about it dying on you. any codes?

Have you cut open any of the 'spent' fuel filters to confirm that they are actually being used? Not to mention you can confirm that there is metal shards in them from the fuel pump.

The CP3 pump is POST fuel filter so you won't find anything in it from the pump. But if the pump is bad I could see the DIC telling you to replace the filter as filter life is based on rail pressure and filter flow. In 2000 miles you would have gone through several takes of fuel but it almost sounds like bad fuel. Do you have a transfer tank?

Injectors list for $810 each! If you can buy a complete engine for 11k, I would like to know where.

I am sure you can. But that is what they list for. If you are paying the service department to do the work, chances are you are paying list!

yeah that $810 retail price is with $100 core charge....so actual retail cost is $710.

you can get them online for about $460 from partszoneonline. A new CP3 is $560 plus core charge.

And GM retail price on a crate engine is $11,495 plus core charge. Partszoneonline has them for $7554 plus core charge. (I dont believe that comes with fuel system or turbo though. So now you know where to get them....

But if I am not mistaken, that is for a long block. Does not include any injectors.
