General Motors is recalling 35,292 2011-2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 and GMC Sierra 3500 trucks — all equipped with dual fuel tanks — because the low fuel level sensor for the front tank may stick, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

As a result of the problem, the rear tank might overfill the front tank and create excessive pressure that causes the front tank to expand and contact the driveshaft. This could lead to a hole in the tank that would leak fuel and pose a fire risk, NHTSA said.

Dealers will replace the rear tank fuel pump or update the fuel-level sensor software to resolve the problem. The front tank will also be inspected and replaced if needed. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners will be notified of the recall beginning in mid-December. When repair parts are available at dealers, a second notice will be mailed in February.

Vehicle owners can reach Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 17399.
