  1. 2004 Yukon Denali XL 1500 AWD Ok, so I have done many brakes in the past but this has me stumped. I put new calipers rotors and pads all the way around on the truck and have bled the brakes like 6 times. twice with a helper and 4 times with a bottle. All times the fluid comes out with no air but it still goes to the floor when its turned on. A small amount of push back is noticed after pumping a few times while the truck is off. But as soon as I turn it on and push its nothing. I have read about there possibly being air in the ABS module and am looking for how to bleed that with just one person and have it actually work. The master cylinder is and has been filled throughout and never dropper too low. I placed all the new parts and puller the hose off the old calipers and attached it to the new ones quickly replacing the copper washers. I just cant figure out what could be happening, any help would be appreciated.
  2. I just recently purchased a 2017 GMC Yukon XL Denali, with the 6.2L engine. I noticed the stock low beams are not that bright, as well as that sometimes they produce a white output and others become yellow. I had both of my headlights with assembly’s replaced under warranty and still is occurring. Has anyone ever experienced this issue, or been able to noticeably see their headlights change from white to yellow?
  3. I have a 2015 Yukon Denali, it is lifted with 35’s, the lift has about 1500 miles on it now, I have had no issues up until recent. The issue is I’m getting a pretty loud metal on metal clacking or tapping noise from some where in the front diff or transmission. It is most predominate from speeds 30mph down to about 10mph. The noise will start when I let off the gas while driving to coast or slow down, it will do it intermittently at higher speeds but not near as much but it is the same issue for sure. It seems like it starts after I let off the gas and the rpms drop down to around 1200 or less in a coast. The noise will start off not as loud and progressively get louder if I coast without touching the gas. As soon as i touch the gas the noise will go away, it does not do this in manual mode only in automatic. I have had the lift looked over multiple times and now I don’t think it has anything to do with it other than the additional Strain may have caused and already underlying problem to become more profound. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Took delievery of my new GMC Yukok XL earlier today and had an odd question about the second row windows. Anyone know why the "whole" glass doesn't go down? There's that 3 inch vertial piece at the back that is fixed in place. Only reason I ask is because my buddy's Silverado doesn't have that piece and since they are built similarly why would the Yukon have that obtrusive piece there that takes away from the clean side profile? Love some insight on this, is it merely structural? Cheers, Victor
  5. Just bought a 2014 Yukon XL Denali which comes standard with 20" wheels. Bridgestone Dueler H/L 275/55R20 tires. I'm buying Michelin Defenders right away even though the Bridgestones only have 37,500 miles on them. The ride is just too choppy with these shallow tires. Should I buy 18" wheels to get a much taller sidewall or will just changing to the Michelins be enough?
  6. During a recent 'snow/ice storm' in Portland and frequent use of the 4x4 hi and low, I wore out my passenger hub bearing unit. I knew it was from the 4x4 because after the thaw, I had a severe wobble/clank from that wheel. Long story short, replaced it, it went away. Now, when In 4hi, the drivers front wheel hums, even at a low speed. Not the type of hum you get from freeway speeds, but as though there is some sort of tension that's creating noise. Again, it's only when 4x4 is engaged. I'd like to know if it is the hub or if it's the 4wheel drive itself. There's minor play in the steering at high speeds in 2wheel from my control arm that desperately needs replaced but no play in the wheel itself when it's in the air and I wiggle it back and forth. I would reaaaaallllyyyy like to avoid the shop since just last week I had the tranny rebuilt ? Any insight is appreciated. P.s., there's 240k miles on this rig...except the trans!
  7. Drivers side seat gets stuck from moving rearward. When you finally work the switch long enough, the seat will finally reverse but only by working the switch in the forward position. What can I check or do to correct this ?
  8. John Goreham Contributing Writer, GM-Trucks.com 4/15/2015 Before I drove this leviathan of an SUV, I had my assumptions. Included were; Gas mileage in the low teens, a limo-like ride, and difficult to manage in real-life situations. It took me about one day to see the appeal and realize my assumptions were all wrong. Sure it is big, and it did not fit in any of my garage bays, nor my girlfriend’s, but the Yukon XL breaks more stereotypes than it confirms. Before I had the truck even a full day, I found myself in need of a Home Depot run for a project. My mid-sized SUV would have been hard-pressed to handle the load of flooring and a bathroom vanity I simply slid into the Denali’s huge maw of a trunk. Prepping the Yukon Denali for the load was one of the first of many pleasant surprises. The power seat folding switches at the tailgate work great and are intuitive. The best part was using that switch to put the seat-backs up after I was done. Perfect. Stepping back to the start of my test, the first interesting features of the Denali XL were the goodies included in the Premium Package. Approach and open a door and power running boards deploys. A nifty trick at first, but I tired of them pretty quickly. I also lost about a pound of skin on both legs when I would quickly grab and open a front passenger door to reach in for my phone. When standing too close to the vehicle, the deploying running boards hit you right in the shin and keep coming. The optional heads-up display was novel. I don’t need that in a Denali, but I love it in performance cars. In the Denali, one can adjust the height of the display, something I had never seen before. The adaptive cruise control was handy. Given this vehicle’s mass GM would be doing the public a service to incorporate full forward collision prevention with full auto-brake on every Yukon/Suburban/Escalade built. It would be very easy to hide in the $78K asking price of my test Yukon. Once inside, the Yukon Denali XL impresses with a very clean and well-designed interior. Although I am not a fan of a column-shifter, it does free up space in the center console. The infotainment system was perhaps the standout in this interior. It is simple to use and easy to appreciate. My phone synched in about five seconds, and I loved all the apps and used them intuitively. No owner’s manual required. Hurray to GM for avoiding a mouse-type interface and using touch-screen and steering wheel controls instead. It works. My fellow writers and I simply don’t understand what the “premium” brands are thinking with their over-complex systems. The Chrysler/Jeep/Ram system is the best on the market, and this GM system is very similar. The ride of the 2015 GMC Yukon Denali XL is truck-like. Rolling on 22-inch wheels with low-profile tires is not my preference. The roads in my snow-belt state are pot-holed, broken and a disgrace. That made the ride rather rough in the Yukon. I have been in older Suburbans that were like limos, so I was a bit surprised by the ride. Due to the nature of the vehicle, handling is not a point I will go deeply into. Drive like and adult and the Yukon does just fine. The 6.2-liter V8 is often in AFM-mode and disabling half of its cylinders. The personality of the Yukon works with this arrangement, and I never felt any lack of power. The transmission was perfectly invisible. When I recorded 19.6 MPG over a mixed suburban and highway route, I assumed I made an error and did it again. Same result. I peeked at fellow writer's review of a similar 2015 Yukon, and he got 20 MPG. Wow. I have had small crossovers like the Jeep Cherokee that were just a couple MPG better on the same route. My own mid-sized SUV only gets 20 on this route. GM’s fuel economy tricks are way underrated. Some other notable likes on this vehicle were the heated steering wheel, haptic (vibrating) feedback when parking, and the overall massiveness of the vehicle. This thing is about being big, and it does not disappoint. Due to schedule and weather limitations I did not have a chance to tow with the Yukon, but its ratings are impressive, and the dash has multiple towing aids available. In conclusion, this review might benefit a reader coming from a smaller SUV, who is on the fence about a GMC Yukon Denali XL. From the perspective of a person used to a mid-sized SUV, I found the vehicle very manageable. It is not a commuter car, and you won’t want to take it for Sunday drives in the country. However, let’s be honest, at $78K this bigger-than-full-sized SUV is really for those who can have multiple vehicles in their stable. This one excels at all things work-related and would be the ideal family vacation truckster.
