Question about 2006 GMC Envoy Xl

1 Answer

I have to replace the lifters in my 2006 GMC Envoy. This will cost over $2,000. The warranty ran out in Oct 2009. The service person said that I didn't do anything to cause the problem Is there any way GMC can be held responsible for this. The car isn't that old for something this major to occur.

If you need to replace the lifters,how is the cam shaft?

I assume you went over the service bulletins, with the dealer, as well as extending warrantee on your issues.

Unless you just passed the mileage limit,I have heard of very few people getting any results from a Manufacturer. Not since the bail outs,they could care less.

The Dealer has met their franchise obligation,so don't get upset with them,they will not help you ,their just a large repair shop,working for themselves and major mfg's

If you could do your own work or have friend help out, that would keep the cost down.
What you have is 90% labor.

Back in the day,1960's,we would stay up all night,change a cam shaft and head to the diner ,then the drag strip, at sunrise.

    Misfires on cylinder #1. plug faled with oil. no compression. valve #1 no lift. lifter or cam problem????


    More often than not the lifter fails before the camshaft fails. If all the other valves on that side are operating normal, then it points to a failed lifter.

    My 2006 GMC Envoy Denali seems to be burning oil- the tail pipe is black and the oil level has gone down in the past 1000 miles. I can hear a noise (only when driving, not when in park or idling) that is...


    I am having the same problem and the dealer says they checked for an "over-active lifter" - no luck, checked for leaks (there are none!) and checked the plugs, all of which seemed to be darker than they should be. They said the GMC factory rep told them to squirt some clearner in the combustion chamber which will clean out the carbon built-up around the rings. We are to drive the car for 1,000 miles and check to see if the oil level is down. Personally, it sounds like a lot of BS to me!

    I have to lights that keep coming on, the first light is a car with a sgiggly line and a wrench next to it. the second light is a car with squiggly line under it


    There is a malfunction in the StabiliTrak system.
    The only fix is to take it to the dealer. They will more than likely pull a diagnostic trouble code {DTC c0196} and reprogram the EBCM (Electronic Brake Control Module).

    This is common problem with
    2006-2007 Buick Rainier
    2006-2009 Chevy Trailblazer
    2006-2009 GMC Envoy
    2006-2009 Saab 9- 7X
    2006-2009 Isuzu Ascender

    Diagnosing and reprogramming is a simple procedure, and most dealers won't charge you to do this service.

    Best of luck!
