Question about GMC Envoy

1 Answer

My check engine light went on and my mechanic said it's the fan clutch. A costly $750.00 job. The diagnosis code he gave me also says it could also be the thermostat. I have an extended warranty though the dealership and would go there if it is the pricey clutch but don't want to pay the deductible if it's only the thermostat. Is there anyway to know? 2005 GMC Envoy ~76,000 miles

Two codes coming up on car even after fixing alot on car now need to figure out low cost ways to fix P0744 & P0722 code issues spent 1,800 on car & have spent 1,400 already in parts & labor.

you need a better mechanic that traces ALL of the possibilities of each code, not just read the code and trow in a part hoping that it's fixed ~ it can be wiring as well, not just plug in a new part as mentioned on the 2nd trouble code to the vehicle speed sensor

P0744 Torque Converter Clutch Circuit Intermittent

P0722 Output Speed Sensor No Signal

the first of the 2 looks to be more intensive to trace and find out the problem & the 0722 is the easier job for an intermediate mechanic to trace the wiring for continuity

Whining humming noise under hood

If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

How much should I expect to pay to have the fan clutch and thermostat replaced in my 2004 Envoy?

The parts prices are $36 thermostat and depending on fan clutch model $88 - $260 From autoparts warehouse site
which leaves $580 for draining system and replacing parts and refilling system plus time a bit steep
get another quote from a different mechanic and decide

Service engine light came on and we put in on a computer and it gave the code p1481 what does this mean

This is almost always the fan clutch. Years 2002-2004 are prone to fan clutch failure. Also a good idea to check out the harness for any frayed wiring.

No power on hills or inclines. Engine check light used to come on and power would drop off, Know no engine check light but no power, Mechanic found 1 plug lead loose but nothing else as he needed engine...

Once the check engine light came on the code should have registered even if the light went off again the code should still be there even if the light is off. These codes only go away if you erase them with a scanner or disconnect the battery.Have the mechanic check the fuses I had a problem on a kia that also had no power and had blown a fuse.If my assistance was helpful please take the time to rate my assistance most people dont take the time we just like to know that our time and assistance are being appreciated thank you.

Emissions warning light came on. Car runs great

It may be the computer itself. If the light keeps returning, either the computer is faulty or the fans are really failing. I do not recommend dealers but actual mechanic shops.
