  1. 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?

  2. 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
  3. It should be covered under your power train warranty if is the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  4. 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.

  5. Knock on wood, 10k miles later and it has fixed the issue. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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. Fuel Injector cleaning (Throttle Body)

    I always thought that the first system wasn't worth doing, until I had an injector issue. These trucks are direct injection. They take more maintenance than port injection. Anything that goes into the gas tank, never passes over the valves so the valve train is never getting cleaned. The dealer said that their service cleans the valves but going into the pcv port. They also include a warranty that gives a credit towards fuel injector replacement. Replacing 1 bank if fuel injectors is about $1,200. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  16. Bad lifter! Fix it or sell it?

    I had looked into getting a crate engine from Frasier engine company. They seem like good quality engines with a great warranty. I didn't end up needing to swap my engine, but if I ever do,I will buy from them. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  17. 19' Silverado Double Cab

    Thanks. Shocked at how the rear leg room didn't increase even though the crew cab is 3"bigger. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

  20. Police package

    I might have an opportunity to pick up a2010 Tahoe w/ the police package. Does anyone know if you can add back the third row on it? Had anyone ever bought an old cop car? Anything else you loose out on with that package? Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  21. 2016 Tahe Z71 rough idle

    You might want to also check the fuel pump pressure. My dealer told me that the high pressure fuel pump can be very glitchy and cause a right idle. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk

  23. When to change ball joints

    I know that when the ball joints went out in my 2007, the tires were wearing excessively on the insides. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  24. My 14 was losing coolant due to a porus head casting. It caused a check engine light got p0450d. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
  25. 2015 1500 50k mile service

    I haven't yet. I had half the injectors replaced under powertrain because of a bad Head and noticed a huge difference. I am planning on doing it at 60k. There is a cutoff if when you have to have the first service and then the service interval after that to get the warranty. Sent from my Moto G (5) Plus using Tapatalk
