I am having issues with my brand new 2015 GMC Yukon Denali. I was so excited to get this new car. It had a leak in the back right rear window from the start. They had to replace the entire headliner in the interior. Now I've got a shiver when in idle both in gear and out of gear. It feels like the car needs more gas. I've taken it into the shop 3 times now. The service department, after listening to my complaint and acknowledging the shiver, ultimately states that the car is "operating as designed". I've test driven a 6.2 liter Denali that does not have this issue.

 

They've stone-walled me at GM, essentially saying they can't fix a problem that doesn't exist. Has anyone else had this issue? You would think that a brand new car wouldn't have this issue, and that they could do something to fix a rough idle. I'm beyond frustrated. I'd love to hear if anyone has the same problem.

I found this thread because my brand new, this weekend, 2015 Denali XL feels rough to me as well. Before I took delivery, I felt it and had them take it back to service and they put it on the computer

I'd like to know the issue. My Yukon has 17k miles on it and still has a rough idle. I just came from the dealer and they won't trouble shoot it because it is not giving a trouble code.

NashvilleGMC I sent you a private email, this is a problem with the Arlington production and I don't understand why it keeps happening but there is a fix for this.

 

For others if your engine is shaking take it to your dealer and have your service advisor sit in the drivers seat and put it in drive and let them feel the shake at 500rpm as it idles. I describe like my vehicle is "shivering"

I think I've been having the same problem that you described with my 2015 Yukon but mine is an SLT. Every time I was idle the car would start to shake/shiver. I've taken it in to service a total of 3 times for this issue and each time they said it was an engine mount issue. This last time, they told me that one of my engine mounts was actually installed backwards and they replaced my engine mounts with new parts just in case. If I'm being nitpicky, I still feel a very very subtle vibration but I think that may be normal vibrations at this point.

 

I had posted this issue somewhere else and someone mentioned checking to see if your plugs are loose? I'm not sure what plugs exactly though.

 

HOWEVER, now that it's warmed up here in Texas and I've had to crank up the AC the shivering during Idle has returned but only when I have the AC on really high. I guess it's time to head back into service. I am honestly one more problem away from trading this Yukon in for the Expedition.

Before I took delivery, I felt it and had them take it back to service and they put it on the computer. Service manager came out and said the computer wasn't showing any codes. I wondered if they had cheap gas.

 

The other thing I noticed was with vehicle in park if you pop the accelerator you get a rather dramatic knock sound. We compared another Denali and an Escalade and they have the knock sound as well.

 

Mine is an Arlington produced Denali and if it does not get better with some miles and a new tank of gas, it is going back. Irony is I am on the GM Onwners Advisory Board.

Any further updates on this issue? This shivering / hesitation issue when idling in park or in gear has existed on my vehicle since 5,000 miles. I have a 2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT. I am sitting at the dealer for the fourth time trying to get it fixed. They have previously replaced the engine mounts, cleaned the throttle bodies, but still not fixed. I was told by a friend that this may be a loose spark plug or spark plug wire issue. DreamCadi or Nashville GMC can you please advise what the fix is for this issue? My vehicle was made at the Arlington plant as well. Thank you.

There have been cases of plug wires being loosely installed on spark plugs on GM trucks. That would explain rough idle, but you would expect the engine to miss even under light acceleration if the wires were really loose.

DreamCadi, can you advise on any technical bulletin for this that I could reference with my local dealer.

 

I'm having the same issue with rough idle that everyone else here has described in a brand new 2016 Denali Yukon.

 

The dealer I visited said the rough idle was "characteristic" of the 6.2L and that I underestimated how much power is in that motor. Apparently I should expect the idle of my new truck to mimick that of a hot rod chevelle from the 60s.

 

Any help on how to approach the dealer for a fix would be greatly appreciated.

I know this is 6 months old. But has anyone got a fix. I actually have a 6.2l sierra denali. Idle rough but engine mounts absorb most of it, except every 3 seconds or so it seems to stumble and I can feel it in the cabin. Then one morning p0300 engine misfire. Dealer said just bad luck with bad spark plug. Replaced it, but stumble every few seconds still ther. Very slight but annoying. Would be better if constant.

Recently my 15' Denali engine light came on. Took it to the dealer and they said it was due to "rough idle". They said the they are going to replace the fuel injectors.

I really never notice rough idle. This kinda suck because my Denali is on it's 3rd tranny and now this crap.

I am experiencing the same exact problem in my 2016 Denali. They claimed it was bad gas. So I have been running higher grade gas and still the same problem. Was your service department able to remedy the knocking issue for you?

      My 2015 Silverado 1500 4x4 crew cab has about 110000 miles on it. It just started having an issue that I cannot seem to fix. The engine stays running when I turn the key to the off position and remove it. The accessories turn off normally and the RAP seems to be working. Meaning the radio and things turn off when I open the door....this truck is all stuck with the exception of a light bar. I’ve already pulled the light bar fuse at the battery hookup to see if that had anything to do with it and it made no change. Any ideas? Thanks

      Looking for input and pictures.  considering 4" BDS  lift for my 2015 Silverado 4WD.  trying to confirm fitment, track width impact and need or no need for front spacers.  Conflicting info as far as i can tell.
      4" BDS widens track width 1.5" on each side some say stock 20X9 +27 wheels can fit 33X12.50 no problem others say you need a 1/2" spacer in front or rub on UCA.
      Does it fit, an direct experience or pics showing how much wheels with this offset poke out from fender?

      I have a 2011 GMC Sierra Denali with a park assist problem I’m hoping someone can help me solve. A couple months ago, I started getting a sporadic “park assist blocked” error. This is pretty common as the sensors are covered in snow in the winter. However, I then noticed the sensors began to work sporadically even if they were clear. A month or so after that, the message changed to “service park assist” and the system automatically disables itself. The button on the dash shows the system is off all the time and when I try to turn it back on, the orange light flashes for two seconds but then disables itself again. I’ve checked the fuse and unplugged the battery but have not been able to get it to reset. Does this seem like a sensor issue or a control module? Any ideas for next steps? Unfortunately since the system is disabled all the time I can’t check to see if one sensor is malfunctioning as I’ve read about on other forums.
       
      Update: when I started my truck once this week it randomly worked for 10 seconds then disabled itself again and hasn’t worked since.

      So ive been seeing the conversion on 08-13 Sierras , and very popular on Silverados even the 14-16 conversions. On feb 1 some jack ass cut me off and hit my front bumper and fender , lucky for him i was already looking into doing a 2018 denali headlight conversion with the gen5 wiring harness and 2015 HD front bumper with 2500 all terrain grille To keep the theme going. As I researched could not find anything on the 2014-2018 sierras being converted to HD , all the guys i saw on IG with them had shops or buddys do them. Some guys welded either the 1500 or 2500 brackets lower ,enlogated the holes lower, redrilled , some had no gap -some liked oem gap between the grille/fenders. I did find two guys I kept intouch with they were a lot of help. One sent me pictures on how to re-drill the stock bumper brackets lower and cut some parts off it to clear the bumper , the other told me 1/2 above the existing holes . I took it upon myself to source a complete front bumper from ebay with everything $750 with shipping all i have to do is paint it , found a all terrain grille on ebay for $300 , had to buy the 2500 bumper guides and 2500 bumper fillers no luck on hood yet.while the parts arrived i bought the 2018 denali lights from fankie on here and the harness from gen5 easy bolt on by the way. When all the parts arrived i grabbed my grinder and drill .
       
      To start i took the 15torque head screws and 7mm from the sides of the wheel wells , took the 12 plastic clips from the upper cover , removed the 4 top 10mm bolts ,pulled off the bumper filler pieces between the grille and bumper , exposing the 10mm 4 bottom grille bolts , then removed the grille. Gaining access to the 4 18mm bolts that hold the bumper on the brackets, i loosened but did not remove till i went under the front bumper and removed the 2 outter 15mm bolts that hold the bottom of the bumper , i loosened the inner 15mm bolts but did not remove , once that was done i removed all 18mm bolts  holding the bumper and took it off . Once off the stock 1500 bumper brackets have 3 15mm bolts in a triangle pattern, i removed all 6 and removed the tow hooks , the tow hooks will be eliminated from this . Once i had the brackets off i measured 1/2 inch above each hole . Now this is important if you want oem gap like myself i drilled a hole slightly bigger than the bolt going threw at the center of that 1/2 mark . If you dont want gap id suggest drilling under the 1/2 mark and possibly enlongating that hole down wards for adjustment. By drilling the hole a 1/2 inch higher it drops the bracket to clear the 2500 grille . In addition to redrilling the bracket you have to cut an L shape on top right next to the top bolt that the bracket has , i actually cut the bottom of the bracket and eliminated the bottom slot for the second 18mm hole because i was having issues lining up , ended up not being the problem , i found that out of the 6 15mm bracket bolts you only use 4 the top and inside 15mm the outter 15mm that completes the triangle actually hits the hd front bumper and it sags in the back ,so removing levels the bumper flush , i tried grinding the head down and still no luck removing was the fix. With the bumper off , you want to remove the 1500 bumper guides 3(7mm) bolts rachet wrench works best and socket aswell , install the 2500 bumper guides with same bolts same place these support and clip on to the new 2500 bumper filler pieces under headlights which youll have to buy . They clip and slide right on , the two bottom outter 10mm bolts that held the old grille will hold these in place and the other two 10mm in the middle from the old grille will be eliminated. See pictures.To finish securing the bumper filler and guides you have to screw the  7mm and 15 torque screws by fender trim , you will either have to buy the 2500 or 18 fender trim pieces or just trim yours roughly enough to bolt on the remark to trim perfectly and level like i did cant even tell .So Once the guides and fillers are installed grab the redrilled bumper bracket to your liking in gap, make sure its clearanced with the L shape you can rebolt bolt to frame leaving the outter 15mm off at that point you can lay the new bumper on the brackets rebolt the top 18mm bolts the bottoms wont line up -i eliminated by grinding off ,see pic -you can reconnect the lower 15mm outter brace and tighten , youll find out that it bolts right up and if you drilled at 1/2 center like me you keep that stock oem gap maybe a bit tighter gap actually but it looks good , you can then install the grille by pushing the clips in and only bolting on the the top 4 10mm bolts once done youll find that the gap is nearly perfect if you drilled at center of the 1/2 mark , some drill under the 1/2 mark to get less gap and some enlongate the hole lower towards the original hole  to adjust and have no gap , but i see that as rubbing issues with paint.
       
      sorry for rambling on on the install , i will try to post all my pictures size will be limited and ill go back to proof read fix anything that i missed. Let me know waht you guys think or if you need help
