Customer Question
For the 2nd time...

For the 2nd time 2010 Avalanche running fine then suddenly service stabilitrack light on, sabilitrack off, check engine light flashing, engine running ruff. After about 5 minutes everything returns to normal

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Check engine light was blinking this time - last time stayed on with a cylinder 7 misfire

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Avalanche yourself? What have you tried so far?

No - took it to shop recently and had new plugs and wires installed.
