Customer Question
I have a GMC...

I have a GMC 2008 GMC Yukon XL 1500 5.3L. My car start but exactly 5 minutes later it stop and the stabilitrak light and traction come!!! It stop on me 3 weeks ago on the freeway. I had it towed home. I am too scared too drive it. I have read where no dealers can find the problem so what's the guarantee that you can before I pay you any money for you information.

Mechanic's Assistant: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Mechanic's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).

OK I will check back when I can afford an $100 for just information that may or may not help fix my car. Thanks anyway!!!

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Strabilitrak off and traction control lights on my panel with check engine and tto slow down my speed, something like that.

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

Yes, replace the crankshaft sensor!!! Check a lot of different sensor and checked the fuses.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Yes I have a code p0601, c0242, u0100.

It starts fine!!! Engine runs very smooth and quiet.
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

You are not understanding my question. You cais it runs fine then it stalls at 5 minutes then it takes 5 minutes before it will restart. During this 5 minute wait time will the engine at least crank when you try to restart?

I can't do it now because I am not home. I had to leave. I guess money gone the drain since I didn't get the answer I needed!
GMC Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

We can continue this later, once you are home.

I do not know why you continue to think this is a scam and waste of your money, it is not.

I can spit out an answer at anytime. Now if you want real help, real resolve, fix it right the first time. Some diagnostics need to be done, which I can work with you on.
