The fuel filter on your vehicle is located inside the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump module. It is, in theory, a lifetime filter and can only be changed by replacing the entire pump module assembly.

Dave, good news for you. There is a recall for the master switch on the drivers door. The recall involves water being able to get into the switch. I wouldn't say anything, just call and ask about the the recall. This "module" is the switch itself. Pop the plastic trim upwards, the switch comes right up.

Hello, Janice -

I can only think you do not have the owner's manual for your vehicle. The information about turning the curb view assist mirror on and off can be found in the manual.

This is the link to the PDF format user's manual for the 2006 GMC Envoy:

You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader software (free) to download/save the manual. If you download and save the manual to your Documents folder, be sure to save it using a file name you can find again easily, something like: GMC Envoy 2006 Manual.

The instructions to turn the Curb View off is on page 3-64 (Image 208) of the manual.

Best wishes.

A rod problem is a steady knock which increases with rpm. More likely you have a plugged air filter , a plugged fuel filter or a vacuum leak, ( vote fuel filter , people never change those often enough)

With as many sensors as that thing has, go to Autozone and ask for a free diagnostic tool check.

It is nothing to do with the canister or associated pipework.

There would be no problem if the filler pipe entered the tank at the highest point but mostly they don't. Realistically the problem is like filling an old-fashioned teapot through the spout if the lid was sealed down tight and there was no vent - once the level has risen to a point equivalent to the top of where the spout enters the teapot a pressure begins to build under the top that resists further filling.

To overcome this problem in the fuel tank and to allow complete filling, the high points have a vent and each vent is joined together by a hose that is terminated at a vent in the filler pipe at a height above the tank top.

When fuel blowback happens during filling the cause is mostly one or more of those vents or hoses is blocked or squashed or otherwise damaged...

there will be codes but the scanner they used was not the right protocol to read them
take it to an accredited professional auto transmission specialist shop and get it properly diagnosed
it will not need a new transmission as it is servo/ solenoid --tcm or TR unit problem

Disconnecting your battery on our platform has a habit of blowing actuators. Takes quite a bit of time to replace them, not hard, just takes forever to get to them in the dash.

A few things....there are 2 fuse boxes to check, one in engine compartment, and one under back seat drivers side. 2nd, check and see if your socket is getting power. 3rd, there is a recall for the rear brake lights, so if all else fails, call the dealer with your VIN #.

Question isn't clear. If you want to BUY pigtails, rockauto is the best place to buy them.
