  1. Engine misfires

    Thanks for the input. My bad on the AFM cylinders. It's number 1,4,6 and 7. I have another mechanic inspecting the engine next week to get a second opinion. If he will recommend a compression test I'll go ahead with it. I'll keep this post updated
  2. Hi all, 15 Yukon SLT (94000 miles) here So I had a misfire code P300 and engine light blinking late December 18. Done a tune up (replaced all sparks and wires) and everything was fine until a few days ago. Didn't feel any lose of power, vibrations and etc. Got another misfire code, this time P0305 (cylinder #5) a few weeks back. Mechanic looked into it and couldn't reproduce. Had an engine carbon clean up. Again no lose of power, vibration poor fuel economy and so on. Couple of days ago got another misfire P0305. Called the mechanics and he suggested a compression test. Not sure if needed as no other signs are apparent. He also start speaking (worst case) about taking the cylinder out to be inspected and replacing AFM lifters. I've looked into mode 6 on my OBD scanner as saw that cylinders 1,3,5,7 all have misfires, though below the threshold so no codes or lights. Cylinder #5 had count of 78 misfires and the rest (1,3,7) around the 1-5 (thats after a 2hr drive) What I found weird is that the AFM cylinders (2,4,6,8) had no misfires. Aren't those the ones with the lifters? I've replaced the coil of cylinder 1 with 5 and got the same results (higher counts of misfires on 5) so don't think that is the problem. Anyone encounter the same issue? How was it solve? Any suggestions for self diagnostics before its heading back to the a shop? Thanks
  3. Windshield Replacement

    I've recently replaced my 15 Yukon SLT windshield. No camera calibration was needed. It was done by a local shop
  4. Maybe it’s an interference from the new module. Try a different location as see if it still happens. Good luck
  5. Did you had navigation before? I had issues with gps signals with my iPhone when it was placed close to the screen (like the front cup holders or inside the hidden compartment) when I’ve placed my phone on the center console or near the windshield it’s working just fine. Im with a 2015 yukon myself which had factory nav before I’ve upgraded to CarPlay
  6. Took me a while but installed the power stop and it's working very well. Can't feel the difference from the OEM brakes. Only replaced the front at the end
  7. Hi guys, Does anyone have the Bose amp (like the one on a 2015 Yukon SLT) harnesses wiring diagrams. Specifically for the speakers. Cheers.
  8. How To: Replace Heated Seat Element Pads

    Hi, any tips on how to remove the seat back panel?
  9. How To: Replace Heated Seat Element Pads

    Thanks!
  10. How To: Replace Heated Seat Element Pads

    Do you have a link to that video? I would like to try replacing this pads myself. Did you also replaced the back rest element?
  11. I’ll give it a go and see but I do have this problem for some time now and the car been through a few washes since. As I mentioned the adaptive cruise and flashing red lights are working so it seems the system does calculate distance from the car. Also changing the gap settings affects the distance with the adaptive cruise control
  12. I do get flashing red lights but never an amber car light. Always green
  13. I've tested with all three settings. Always green, never amber
  14. Hi guys, Do anyone else have this issue where the tailgate warning (the green/amber car logo on the cluster screen) is always green when a vehicle is detected? It should become ember if you don't keep enough distance from the car in front The adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning works so I assume the system does know how far the car in front is but the light doesn't change.
  15. I've removed the headliner up to the 2nd row rear entertainment. It was quite straightforward although I lost a couple of metal retainers that I need to order now but no biggie. "Luckily" Ive found that the leaks are coming from the rear roof rails bolts. I've retighten them and the leak is gone.
