Was there a bulletin issued to extend a warranty for spark plug wires, maybe #10250


Yes....10 years or 120,000 miles
Condition
Some customers of 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3) may comment about rough engine operation and the illumination of the Check Engine Light. This may be caused by spark plug wire boots that do not provide a sufficiently robust dielectric seal to withstand the high voltage required to fire the spark plugs.
Special Coverage Adjustment
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. Dealers are to replace all spark plug wires and, if necessary, the spark plug. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after January 5, 2011, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to January 5, 2011, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
Vehicles Involved
Involved are 2007-2009 model year Chevrolet Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles equipped with a 3.4L engine (LNJ), and 2008 Chevrolet Express, Silverado; GMC Savana, Sierra vehicles equipped with a 4.3L engine (LU3).

Hard shifting


probably just your transmission being old and wear and tear catching up to it. engine braking is a good thing in a manual but since automatics cant judge how far to let out a clutch mechanism that doesnt exist to make it smooth, it usually causes more wear and tear than its worth. maybe time for a transmission rebuild and time to leave engine braking to manual transmissions. $30 brake pads vs $2000 transmission. hope this helps ya

What is the average monthly maintenance cost for this car?


That is not a question that can be answered

Some people drive Hondas and Toyotas 120,000 miles
only changing the oil 3 times,then wonder why it has been
such a good vehicle until it quits. That is a true event,really

All vehicles vary or in your life time could average out about the same
monthly.
Too many variables. Most people do absolutely no preventative
maintenance. They wait until a problem comes up, then continue
on. Read the questions on this site. 90% have no idea what to do
about anything, on a motor vehicle or where to go to have it checked out.

I believe if you are not having your vehicle looked at 3 times a year and
spending $1000 per year/$83 per mo,your neglecting what it needs

Easy to say when you have been working on your own vehicles for 47 years.

You said maintenance,not fuel, insurance,etc.

Bogs down at high acceleration


Sounds like a plugged catylic convertor, GM has a Special Policy adjustment that covers the catylic convertors for 10 years or 120,000 miles (190,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. This is for 2001-2002 models with 3.4L or 3.8L engines. If you have a 3.8L engine you want to get this fixed soon, I have seen people drive these things so long with the convertor plugged that they melt a hole in the plastic intake plenum where the EGR port comes into the intake behind the throttle body.

When hot,the engine is missing.


Sounds like coil is breaking down.Try pouring a little water around the base of the coil with car running if engine stops change coil.It could also be the ignition module heating up like the coil and breaking down.Engine analyser in workshop would very quickly pick up which of the two items is at fault.

My volvo has 150000 miles when is time to change timming belt


Timing belt
For proper functioning of the engine and its emission control systems, the timing belt and belt tensioner must be replaced every 105,000 miles (168,000 km) or at 120,000 miles (193,000 km) for the 2.5T engine on AWD models. Engine damage will occur if the belt fails.

The car hasnt died yet? thats lucky

"engine damage" is a euphemism for, the camshaft will stop as soon as the belt breaks, jamming at least one valve open, the valve head will smash through the piston crown on the next piston upstroke, and large fragments of hardened steel will rattle around in the engine chewing up everything they meet untill the engine seizes
time taken ~3 seconds.

probably a good time replace it, its due to fail now even if the 105K is a conservative fail safe number

When to change the timming belt for kia sedona 2002


The dealer recommends the timing belt be replaced at 60,000 miles if it is a rubber timing belt. Newer Sedona models have a metal chain timing belt that don't need to be replaced so soon.
