I have been searching for problems with a 2007 GMS Denali with the oil pressure low - please turn engine
off message. My mechanic has tried everything including replacing the oil pump which was quite costly and it's still doing same thing :( He said I will need to get a new engine - but how can it be the engine when it is purring like a kitten! I've been reading about the camshaft and mentioned it to him and his response was "if the cam bearings are out then you have to rebuild the motor - and yes that's probably what is wrong with your truck." Is he right about having to rebuild the motor to try this fix?
JA: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?
Customer: Oil pump was just replaced last week. I can't remember if the check engine light came on when I got that message. I immediately turned it off and had it towed to his shop.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: No - we know nothing in the world about this but am questioning my local mechanic's advice on this and I am desperate to get my car back up and running. I can't afford a new motor and he's more or less like - junk it - sell it for parts? It's a beautiful 2007 black Yukon xl denali that we have taken very good care of. How can this happen?
JA: OK! The GMC Mechanic will help you with the diagnostics so you are sure to get this fixed right. Is there anything else important you think the GMC Mechanic should know about your GMC?
Customer: I've read on some sites about the message about the "stabilitrak..." when their happened to their car. Well, actually my car has been getting that message since I bought it in 2008 with 45,000 miles on it. It's only truly caused a problem two times in all these years where it actually shut off going down the highway when that was the message. Otherwise, it always happens whenever it decides to - makes my check engine light come on to where I can't start my car with electric start but other than that, it's never caused any problems with us driving the car. Does this even have any connection to my oil problem I am now having? Other than that, I love my car and I just want it back.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the GMC Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
