GM Tech (Cam) :

Welcome

GM Tech (Cam) :

We are in a live chat window now.

GM Tech (Cam) :

This sounds like your lifters or something with the active fuel management is bad. That is why the check engine light will be flashing.

GM Tech (Cam) :

What is your VIN so I can see if you are still under warranty.

Customer :

It's not, I'm the second owner and has over 90k miles

GM Tech (Cam) :

but there is powertrain warranty that is good till 100000 and it does not matter who owns it. I can tell you for sure with the VIN.

Customer :

3gnfc16057g100025

GM Tech (Cam) :

You have warranty on the powertrain, engine included till 10000 miles and Feb 17, 2011, and you have an open recall.

GM Tech (Cam) :

This means your dealer should fix this under the powertrain warranty.

Customer :

you say lifters? would this cuse all the other stabilitrak issues and the shifting hard issue

GM Tech (Cam) :

It is possible yes.

GM Tech (Cam) :

The stability system uses the engine first.

GM Tech (Cam) :

to cut the power. Any engine problem will cause the stability to be disabled.

GM Tech (Cam) :

Also are your door handles inside peeling and making sharp edges ?

Customer :

is the stabilitrak considered to be covered under power train

Customer :

no, no handle issues on the inside; just the issues on the description

GM Tech (Cam) :

that I cannot tell from here, but if I may be honest, start with that engine issue because I believe there is a good chance it is the root cause and that it will be covered.

Customer :

i know about the recall on the windshield washer heater

GM Tech (Cam) :

I asked about the handles because there is a special policy to replace then if ANY are peeling, and that is good for 100000 miles and 10 years.

GM Tech (Cam) :

I recommend you get the windshield washer done. They do start fires.

Customer :

the outside handles are peeling and one is broke slap off

Customer :

year I heard they do; if a bullitin is issued on something; what does that mean

GM Tech (Cam) :

This policy only covers the inside ones and since you are close by mileage, I thought I would bring it up .

GM Tech (Cam) :

It is a recall where they disable it, and gove you some money back.

Customer :

ok Thanks for the heads up; I'll double check

Customer :

i'm about 35 miles from the dealer so I'll have to trailer it or have it towed

GM Tech (Cam) :

Is there more I can get for you today/

GM Tech (Cam) :

today I mean

Customer :

can't risk the oil pressure thing

GM Tech (Cam) :

Call roadside, see if they will tow it.

Customer :

ok; you got that number

GM Tech (Cam) :

18004628782.

Customer :

do you have roadside assistance phone number?

Customer :

my bad thanks

GM Tech (Cam) :

Is there more I can get for you today

Customer :

have a good one

Customer :

no that's it
