Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So how can I help today?

So gm considered that a external part and will not be covered under the warranty, that vehicle has a general 36k warranty that would have been covered under that, but is clearly over that amount,

the question is what do you think is the problem,and have you heard of this happening to other gm vehicles
Chevy Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 8 months ago

do you happen to know the codes that were in the car from the service lights? And yes this is a common problem, most general fix for it is throttle body, throttle body sensor, battery problems, connection issues.
