  1. My 2010 4.8 did the same thing and had 2 issues, alcohol percentage was 35%, fixed that and still an issue. Turned out to be the vacuum port on the passenger side valve cover had been knocked off when changing the plugs. Put a rubber cap on it and it clear my negative LTFTs on both banks.
  2. Sounds like a temp sensor is faulty somewhere. i.e. ambient temp sensor.
  3. Wow They did not see the issue with the tires? I would never go back there.
  4. Had the same problem with Ublock last week and it is now fixed for me as well.
  5. I get no graphics just typed menu lists etc. I have an ad blocker installed that worked fine until last week. See pics of the display I get trying to get in.
  6. Last week this site stopped working with firefox browser. Is a fix in the works?
  7. Any parts place should have rubber caps that fit that port.
  8. You also need to scan and get an ethanol percentage reading first. If the % is way off i.e. 45% when your only running a known 15%, then you have a vacuum leak and have not been following proper refueling procedures. Make sure the vacuum test port on the right side valve cover is not leaking (it is a tab that breaks off and needs to be capped after the test). The hard start is usually the throttle position sensor or fuel pressure.
  9. Go to the GM upfitter site and use the SEO/Upfitter location in the black box under the parking brake pedal. There are two RAP circuits there and several hot circuits. Add an inline fuse to your wiring. That is where my dashcam and backup camera are wired to in my 2010.
  10. I think that you will see a trend towards hydrogen fuel development and infrastructure over the next 5 years. Some of the major oil companies are already doing the R&D for this. Unfortunately, this also requires increases in the electric grid to manufacture the hydrogen, but, is more efficient than solar or wind and the proper infrastructure will get rid of the range limitations. Off hour wind farms can be used to create the hydrogen, i.e. at night and storage technologies are slowly being developed.
  11. All sensors can transmit temperature as well as pressure and battery life estimate. GM just does not use that info for your vehicle tires.
  12. Are you talking about the child safety seat tethers? Do you not have the owner's manual?
  13. I have a VXDIAG NANO tech2 clone that I hook to my laptop. I can reset the Ethanol % with it. It was HARD to get running on the laptop the first time, but, the second time the software has improved and install was no problem. Downloading the software from the chinese site for VX gave me a virus, so make sure you have protected your PC first
