HelloCustomer Welcome to justanswer!


If you clear the codes which ones come back right away?

i will check on that. give me a minute to do this
Expert:  Anthony replied 7 years ago.
Ok, sounds good.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
i cleared codes and no error codes return.....engine starts normally
Expert:  Anthony replied 7 years ago.
Ok, see what comes back then replace what ever is relevant to the codes. Its very hard to tell which ones are true at this point.
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
this problem does reoccur, does that mean a intermittent problem or a sensor getting ready to go out?
Expert:  Anthony replied 7 years ago.

YOu have to see how many come back. If they all come back then replace the cam, crank and o2 sensors. If they still come back after that you have a bad computer.

also regarding stability errors on video screen on dash....the code reader tells us nothing on that...what do you suggest
Expert:  Anthony replied 7 years ago.
That has to be handled separately. I would suggest resetting those codes and see whats back. That one really should be handled by a GM dealer as it requires a lot of hands on testing.
