Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Chevy Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.I have been in this business since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Please be patient!I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.
This problem will show up on a scan tool if the tech knows what he's looking for. Any time you are reduced power, it gets recorded in the computer system.
That's not good enough, it has to be a scan tool where data is provided.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on with data information.
We need computer DATA, not codes. We need to see all the sensor and actuator results including MODE6.
The scan tool being attached to the vehicles computer.
Sorry, I don't build these cars, just fix them:) This information is paramount right now.
Thanks again, Ron
Or any qualified shop, not only the dealer can do this.
They will give you a print out at your request. I would never make any assumption about something like this, there are just too many possibilities. Thanks again, and please rate me now.
Oh that's not true and you know it, Just because you can't fulfill what needs to be done, doesn't mean I didn't do my job. I told you exactly what needed to be done, but you don't have the resources to do it so you want to hold it against me for the bad news. That's real fair.
That doesn't mean they were right when they told you what they did, they're not god's over there. I would talk to the service manager and plead your case to him/her. They will help you further. I wish I was there to help you with this issue.
