Mine was perfect except for the B&M shifter. How is yours?
Excellent at 63,000 miles under the wheels. Two small b1tches-- the seat bucket is starting to sag a bit and that damned shifter rattle (which is easy enough to fix).fergyflyer said:Mine was perfect except for the B&M shifter. How is yours?
I f they can't find the leak, it sounds like the intake gasket. Had the same problem with my 97 tahoe, coolant leaked right into the engine oil and destroyed everything.eldodroptop said:I am about to pursue Buyback on mine. The car has been overheating and using 1/2-3/4 Gallons of coolant every 2-3K miles (15K miles on odo now). This is the fourth trip to the Dealer for this problem...
Right now it has been at the dealer for the last 10 days with the heads off waiting for final authorization from the Zone Rep to replace the entire engine.
They cannot find a leak and there is no sign of problems with the heads.
GM is now just throwing parts at the problem (And very expensive parts at that)
I am betting that even if they replace the Engine the problem will return....
You don't think a complete engine replacement would fix the problem? WOW!!!! I cannot imagine that not solving a problem, unless there is a coolant piping issue somewhere.eldodroptop said:I am betting that even if they replace the Engine the problem will return....
Mine is doing the same plus a rattle from the steering column. Anybody ever find out how to fix the door rattle?HotRodGuy said:now the AC compressor is extremely loud, shifter is rattling, rattle fromt he door, car doesn't go into gear all the time.....getting real annoying.
They have not 100% diagnosed the problem so doing an Engine replacement at this point is just a gamble by GM... I am the type of Mechanic that get pissed at people who just throw parts at a problem and Pray... That is what GM is now doing and I am betting that the Motor is not the issue.dealernut said:You don't think a complete engine replacement would fix the problem? WOW!!!!
