  1. Fuel injector replacement

    There are quite a few threads on it. Injectors are not part of the power train warranty. If you have p050d, check with the dealer before replacing injectors because you might have a leaky head that there is a pip on. Another guy went threw and replaced the injectors himself only to find out that he had the leaky heads. He did a good right up on the process of replacing the injectors. Midwest Denali I think is his username. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  2. Yes, that is all you need to do. I used the impact to get out to the point that the shaft started spinning. Then I used an open end wrench 15mm for the Bilstein nut and 18mm for the factory plus a key for the to of the strut. A crescent wrench should also work. It is a pretty simple fix.

  3. Switch the castle nut back to the OEM nut. Fixed mine. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. Understood. I was thinking that the mileages in the op we yours. It amazes me how few dealerships recognize the importance of service departments in making future sales. I think the issue is that there is so much turnover in both the same departments and dealership ownership that they most likely won't be around when it is time for you to buy another truck. The dealership that I bought both my truck from has a new service department, new ownership, new managers and new sales people within 6 months of buying. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  5. It should be covered under your power train warranty if is the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  6. They replaced the driver's side head and injectors. My oil was also not milky and the coolant usage was minimal. It is a pin hole leak. It basically is seeping a few drops of coolant in when it is sitting that gets burnt off at startup. It is very minimal, but enough to cause a rough cold start and kill an injector.

  7. Knock on wood, 10k miles later and it has fixed the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  8. Inverter that is in our GM's

    Coffee pots actually pull a decent amount of amps due to the heating element. The average coffee maker is 600 to 700 watts. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  9. I would check with your dealer. BG includes a warranty on your injectors with the service. I think it is either $1k or $2k towards the replacement of injectors. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  10. Oil leak at Bell housing

    That was my other guess. I have had oil pan leaks on both my Sierras so it wouldn't surprise me if that was the problem. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  11. Oil leak at Bell housing

    My thought was rear main. Really slow seep, no dripping. It is just filling the space between the Black plastic and the bell housing with what I think is oil. I feel like a truck with 17k miles shouldn't have any oil leaks at this point. It is still under warranty for another 5 yes 70k since I got an extended warranty, but just wanted to get in front of it. The truck was smelling last week so I climbed under it to check it out and that is when I saw the oil. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  12. I have an oil Seep at the bell housing on my dmax canyon. It is at the dealership right now and they are having trouble recreating it. Has anyone had oil where the bell housing meets the back of the engine block. Pictures of the oil below. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  13. If you look up super charger instruction manuals, they give you step by step instructions with color photos for removing the intake. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  14. Rental Car

    I had made an appointment a week ago and told them I would need a loaner. They claim the service writer didn't put it on the calendar. They also said that Enterprise isn't dealing with GM. So everyone on here saying that they got an Enterprise car is helpful. The old owners would do that with Enterprise, but the new owners don't seem to want to.

  15. Rental Car

    My wife's GMC Canyon has an oil leak. It is still under bumper to bumper and we have a platinum gm protection plan. The dealership is saying that GM isn't reimbursing then you rental cars so they are only offering service loaners. They didn't have any available last night so I couldn't leave the truck. I feel like if they are going to offer rental car loaners they should have more than 12 available or have rental cars as a backup. Has anyone else has trouble recently getting a service loaner?
