    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    This is what I thought at first but there is only about an inch of slippage then the shift lever moves. And moves back to original Park position when moved.

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    I finally got a chance to check out my problem. I checked the trans end of cable while Wifey changed from P to Low. There is a hesitation in the cable movement until the shifter is almost in Neutral then it moves into Reverse. then have to shift further to 2nd before it moves enough to actually...

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    Thank you for the link. My problem is a little different. I have been busy at work and haven't had time to check the Envoy yet. But numerous searches here and Google all point to the same problem in your link. Mine is still shifting into and out of Park and going into gear ok. But when I shift...

    '02 Envoy SLT with a strange problem...

    Last week I was at a street where I was parked facing uphill, no handbrake on, just in park with engine off. After about 15 minutes I fired it back up but it seemed like it didn't want to come out of park. With a little extra effort it did release from park but I had only neutral instead of...

    NEED HELP Larger tires

    I have an '02 Envoy SLT and the tires, 245/65R17, are almost worn out. I have a larger set 265/70R17 and was wondering if they would fit without scraping somewhere. The rear would probably be ok but wondering more about the front. The larger ones are about 2 inches taller so a 1 inch radius...

    '02 Envoy SLT rear bumper impact bar.

    Has anyone ever replaced their rear inner bumper? Mine just failed inspection because of too much rust on the impact bar. I have found a replacement but was wondering could the impact bar be replaced without removing the plastic outer cover? Looks like the plastic part attaches to the impact bar...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Mine works great. Fuel mileage is very good for the size of the vehicle. Made a trip from Nova Scotia to Ontario when we bought it and after resetting the DIC it showed an average of 26.5 MPG (Imperial gallon). I don't think the Envoy ever did that well. Beautiful truck to drive.

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Thanks Bud. I think Rock auto is my best bet too. By the way, they are both gone. Been driving her a little easy lately. ;) Bought a '12 Acadia for my wife 3 years ago. It had no license plate holder on the front bumper (we only have a rear plate in Nova Scotia). Wife wanted to put a plate with...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Link to rear upper control arms from Rock Auto... Edited for my dumbness... after looking closer at the pics in the website the non-air and the air ride arms look about the same. Earlier I looked at the lower arm. It is definitely beefier. My bad. But the prices are way lower than local...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Thanks for the advice. But it's the non-air ride arms that look beefier. I wasn't sure if they were interchangeable. My local repair guy is pretty good to work with. He even suggested I call around to find the best price. I've supplied parts in the past without problems. He did say that the...

    Rear upper control; arms rusted and broke.

    Hey Guys, haven't been around lately but am now in need of some expert advice. I have a 2002 Envoy SLT with 235,000 KM on it and it just failed inspection. I need both left and right rear upper control arms. Both are rusted and broken away from the frame end. While checking for parts I'm seeing...

    Help with engine noise, video included

    Sounds like power steering, like xavierny25 said. But mine makes a whine sound since it was changed several years ago during a steering rack change. But mine is a higher pitched sound. Could it be your alternator with a bad bearing?

    More codes.

    I have checked for leaks in the past and can't find one. Possibly could be a bad rad cap realising too much pressure. But when I tried to clear the codes yesterday they came right back. After adding coolant I've had it around the block and warmed up twice and still running well and no codes. I'm...

    More codes.

    While trying to sleep last night I had an idea. When Mooseman mentioned the cooling fan I remembered a while back I had run low of coolant and had some different codes. Checked this morning and it was down almost a gallon. So I have a slow coolant leak (maybe 3-4 months it lost enough to set...

    More codes.

    Hey Guys. Having a problem here this evening. 2002 Envoy SLT with about 140,000 m. My other vehicle (Wife's 2012 Acadia SLT) is broke (power steering pump leak) so I was heading out to pick her up from work. Cruising on the highway at about 65-70 mph when suddenly I heard 4 chimes and got a CEL...

    Driver door wiring issue ithink

    I had a problem with mine a couple years ago. None of the buttons on the driver's side door worked. Swapped out panels with the passenger side. Driver's side worked on the passenger side but not the other way around. I tried new switch panels with no success. Tech told me he could check my wires...

    @?$#& !!!! P0300

    When I had the misfire in mine at first was just getting P0300. I unplugged each coil one at a time. If the misfire is present you will notice it worse when you remove the wire from a good coil. The misfiring one won't make a difference in the idle.

    Thanks. Will do the check and clean. Supposed to have some milder weather this week. Do I need gaskets or O-rings to remove and clean these?

    Actually I am overdue for an oil change. Got the oil and filter but it's been so damn cold here. Maybe I need to man up and change it. Thanks for the tip.

    After having a couple problems with coils The old Envoy is running pretty good again. Fuel efficiency has dropped of but I figured it was because of the failed coils/plugs and some sooting up of the Cat. But a couple weeks ago I got periodic check engine lights. Sometimes one and then it would...

    MPG...

    Any changes to the vehicle since around the time of the coil failure? New tires? 4x4 stuck on? Nope, except for a problem battery. I bought a good used (6 months old) battery from my neighbour last summer. It's a top post so I used adapter cables and I'm having problems with cold weather...

    MPG...

    Temp gauge is straight up, 210F. Took her for a little longer drive (scenic route ;) ) yesterday and MPG got down to 22.3L/100km. A little better. Maybe it just needs to be driven more. I have a borrowed basic code reader.

    MPG...

    It's a short drive but this is the quickest vehicle to warm up that I've owned. 5 minutes of idling from cold will have my temp gauge 1/2 ways to operating temp. It's fully warmed up after such short trips, according to the temperature gauge. What is TCC lockup? This is how this truck has been...

    MPG...

    A while back I had 2 ignition coils go bad, not at the same time. Replaced one and still had a misfire. Thought it was the replacement that was bad but it was a different one. '02 Envoy SLT with 146,000 miles. These were original coils. During this I changed the plugs. About 5 years ago I had...
