    My 04 ENVOY 4.2 sounds like an old man getting up in the morning

    @Mike534x I didn't replace the cannister, just the purge valve near it, and inspected the hoses for holes, abrasion, and gave them a tug test to be sure they were on tight. When I replaced both valves, I was looking for pieces of charcoal and found none. Nice pick up on the hairline crack, I...

    My 04 ENVOY 4.2 sounds like an old man getting up in the morning

    Just did the same thing with a P0455, the code was intermittent, maybe once a month. Started by tightening, then replacing the fuel cap. Worked for a while, then the code came back. Since it's been warmer, I crawled under the truck (2004 TB) and inspected all the lines to the cannister purge and...

    ECM B fuse blows instantly

    Sounds to me a component on the harness may be shorted, and since you're putting a new one in plug everything in one ar a time till the fuse blows. @TJ Bakers suggestion is great, I've seen those used. Thinking further, the rodent infestation sounds like there may be a power wire shorted to a...

    ECM B fuse blows instantly

    I had to read this a few times, but what I'm reading is that all the components on the main harness are disconnected and the fuse blows when you hook up the grounds?

    4.2 keeps losing oil pressure

    If it's done it forever, it's probably piston slap. Synthetic oil will most likely lessen the noise.

    Horrible Fuel Mileage

    Beacon, GMCman Yes, I do let it warm up for a minute or two before driving, and am well aware of the loss of mileage in the winter months. I expect a loss of about 2-3 mpg when it's cold (below 40), this winter it just seems to be excessive. It's supposed to go up to 60 today, hopefully won't...

    NEED HELP P0171 Code causing high idle and poor fuel mileage!

    Sage advise on the ECTS. I was checking mine with a scanner and the coolant temp was around 170, said to myself time for a thermostat. Put one in, scanned it again, still 170. Replaced the coolant sensor, all's good. Just an FYI, use some teflon tape on the sensor, mine leaked, wound up doing...

    Horrible Fuel Mileage

    I noticed this over the winter, fuel milage went way down. The vehicle is well maintained with all the filters and fluids changed on a maintenance schedule. Around late October, early November, town driving, it was getting 13-14 MPG, which for this car, is poor, even for winter blend gas...

    Can this be repaired?

    From the looks of the pictures, that's not the only rusty spot on the frame. If you're looking for a project and have the skills to fix it yourself, $25 more than a junkyard would pay.

Cut the rusted part of the line out with a pipe cutter, clean the ends with a piece of emory cloth, and slide them on. There'a a specific tightening (seated, then 1/4 turn), and you're good...

    Transmission job #2

    Pull the pan and look for debris, clutch material, etc. If so, it has to come out. Maybe you'll get lucky and it will be a clogged filter.

    No, I was a packaging machine mechanic, that was after 20 years as an mechanic at a dealer. Kind of surprises me, I told the company I was going to retire just before Thanksgiving. They tried replacing me from within the company, didn't work. Then they went outside the company, hired a couple of...
