    Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade Hybrid

    My next door neighbor had the Tahoe version and that thing was in the shop in constantly . He had it for 2 years and then he had enough and traded it for Toyota Sequoia .

    Longevity of the 4.2 and 4l60e

    Yeah if you live in the rust belt you can count on the transmission cooler lines and the power steering cooler lines and cooler to start leaking and having to be replaced .

    Metal lines 2008 Ascender RWD 4.2

    Next to the battery tray under that stupid rubber isolator they used , but I had them check the cooler and they said it looked like it was in rough shape . So it didnt make much sense to fix that leak and then have the cooler bite the dust shortly .

    Metal lines 2008 Ascender RWD 4.2

    Well we will see how the repair lasts . We decided to bypass the PS cooler because that was shot . They said they have done this on a lot on this platform . They said they have never had a problem with any of them overheating so opted with that . $300 versus almost $1000 if they had...

    Metal lines 2008 Ascender RWD 4.2

    There is 2 metal lines that run up and over the driver side wheelwell . What are these lines ? I am seeing a sheen on the ground and it looks like it may be coming from these 2 lines where there is a foam separator on the wheelwell and it looks like it has rusted out in this area...

    Temperature gauge goes inop p0128

    It was the thermostat . Replaced the stat and had them flush the coolant and reset the codes . Coolant levels were fine before all this . This has fixed the issue . Gauge is working again and reading right up at the middle mark on the guage, heat is great . I have taken it for 3 longer...

    Temperature gauge goes inop p0128

    Ran across this so I think it is the stat first , https://ricksfreeautorepairadvice.com/p0128-and-temperature-gauge-dead-gm-vehicles/ , If you get a P0128 code AND the temperature gauge is dead, head right for the thermostat. When a thermostat goes bad on a GM vehicle, the PCM sets a...

    Temperature gauge goes inop p0128

    2008 Ascender , . No CEL currently . Temp gauge will go to zero at times and getting a P0128 at the same time . I find it interesting that the stat could cause this to happen . If that is the case it must be some stupid ECU programming that says when you see this code shut off the...

    First look... 2021 TrailBlazer

    Thats what we all were waiting for but Barra likes these puny CUV's that are all the same or wasting their money on EV's that few people will buy .

    Are tunes being outlawed?

    If they did this then I guess they would have to get rid of remote start too as that is just wasting gas and adding CO2 .

    First look... 2021 TrailBlazer

    What a slap in the face of a great former vehicle. They couldn't have done something smart and make it based on the Colorado truck where they would have sold a ton of them . After seeing this glad I bought my new 2020 Durango . I had (still have) an 08 Ascender and i loved that thing...

    looks like i have a transmission oil leak

    Transmission cooler lines. Just had mine done a little while ago . If you have someone do it you are looking at $300-400 . Its inevitable if you live in the rust belt where they salt heavily .

    Installed new alt., voltage fluctuates

    It' is always going to fluctuate . It is not steady . Whatever the state of the battery is is determined by the PCM so if it detects that the battery is down a bit it will then charge at a higher rate until it is charged and then you will see it go down . This is normal .

    How much oil to put in my 4.2 vortex.

    Manual says 7 so go with that as long as you are doing the filter too .

    2002 LTZ vs 2008 LT2

    Another bigger thing for 2008 was they went back to a more reliable mechanical fan clutch with no electronics involved .

    Weak shocks

    I am running OESpectrums on mine all the way around and they have about 40000 on them now and they still ride nice . If you think you will ever replace them they are warranted for life even against standard wear out . Been pretty happy with them . Just did swaybar links on mine and that...

    2019 Chevrolet Blazer

    I certainly would take the new Kia Telluride or Hyundai Palisades over this thing. At least they look somewhat like a normal SUV . Besides I'm not buying anything that you can't turn off that stupid stop start function . That's what we all have been waiting for .

    Rusted Frame at Hitch

    Are they welded on or bolted on . Looks like you can get new ones if you are so inclined though somewhat pricey . http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5338077216&icep_item=370888443105

    Trailblazer coming back... sort of...

    Well the nightmare rumour for the Trailblazer has come true and it's a little garbage CUV between the Blazer and Trax . Done waiting for GM to get its @#@#@# together. Off to the Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango .

    [RUMOR] Trailblazer coming back as a Trax

    So miffed at that thing they are calling a trailblazer . A little 3 or 4 cylinder turboized wanna be . Was waiting for the Colorado based one and they release this little piece of garbage . Am getting ready to replace my 08 Ascender and they have lost me as a customer. They have made my...

    Crazy Center Dome Light

    You might want to try resetting the BCM , I have seen some strange things due to thAT. Was have TPMS issues where the light wouldn't go out and could not figure it out. Decided to pull the fuses for the BCM for a few minutes and reinstalled and have never had another TPMS issue .

    NEED HELP Rear door speaker impedance.

    I agree with this guy . GM must have invested all of $5 in the OEM speakers and you end up replacing them within 5-6 years .

    Radio replacement

    Nah most of the speaker issues on these things were the cheap $10 chinese speakers they used in these. I had to replace all 4 within the first 5 years of ownership . Think I used Pioneers and have never had another issue with any of them .

    GMC protecting the Envoy name...

    Unless they make a new SUV based on the Colorado what's the point . There is so much potential there and they give us a larger Equinox instead . GM has nothing I want , will be looking at a Dodge Durango , at least they look like a real SUV not a soccer mom mobile . And they can take...

    TPMS issues

    Yes it did , have not had a single issue since. Once in a great while you get some radio intereference and will pop the light but it's very rare now .
