I know he purchased the parts from his Chevy dealer with whom he has an excellent relationship with the Service Manager so I would think that if the injectors couldn't be replaced individually he would have told him - maybe I am wrong but one would think that the Service Manager would know and say something? OK, if there is the vacuum leak what is the sealer that has to be added to the coolant and can it be added now? or does he have to pull apart everything again - heaven forbid!

Sorry, I forgot to ask, what is the name of the sealant that you speak of?

My bad. The CPI engine uses a central injector with multiple nozzles. It must be the nozzles that he is replacing. The dealer will know about the sealer. I just know we had to replace the CPI unit several times on a 4.3L V6 and each time sealant was added to the coolant. Something about sealing leaks between the air intake of the manifold and the cooling passages.
If he is not getting any error codes he must have all the sensors connected correctly. That is why I am thinking vacuum leak. Is the problem now the same as before he started the repair?

Well, the plot thickens. We went to try starting it up this morning and the battery is totally dead - nothing! Gary said he checked all the doors etc last night to make sure that nothing was open and he had had the battery disconnected while he worked on it but now its totally dead. I think he has almost given up in frustration. No, the problem we had before the repair was that the water would disappear and it was getting into the where the valve lifters were and then it mixed with the oil there. YUK! A mess to say the least. Well we shall see as he has decided to have it towed to the Chevy dealer tomorrow and get them to fix it now.... I'll keep you posted on the outcome as it may help others.

We all wait with baited breath!
Somewhere back in the old memories I recall an issue where an alternator problem caused the whole ECM system to just go nuts. Engine acting weird, guages all over the place, just totally nuts. Your hubby finding the battery dead for no apparent reason reminded me of this. Will be interested to hear what the dealer finds.

Check again. There is a subwoffer in the console upfront towards the front of the vehicle. If you stick you head in by the pedals you can shine a flashlight in behind the console and you will see a powered 6 1/2 inch sub woofer. Apprently Bose thought that location would be better then the rear where the regular non bose stero has its subwoofer.
#5819 of 6471 Tire Pressure Monitoring Problem
Feb 06, 2006 (1:36 pm)
I apologize in advance if this problem has posted before. I did do a search but could not find this exact problem.
I bought a Used 2004 Tahoe from a dealership. In the deal I had them but on 22" that were on another Tahoe that was on the lot. When I drove away I noticed the "Tire Monitor Service" message. At first they thought the sensors just needed to be re-programed. After that did not work they ordered new sensors thinking it was bad sensors. After that did not work they told me know that my only option is to put the stock rims and tires back on. I am hoping there is are more options.

thanks very much, Jim . . . it means they know they have a bad part, and those who are under warranty get it for free, and those who aren't . . . well, I didn't have to tell you that . . .
do you know if it was a big deal . . . ? Is it just a case of popping off that speaker looking 'thing' . . . ? One site I went to said I'd have to remove the headliner, but I don't want to get into that, and another said the amount the dealer would have otherwise charged is $80, so it can't be that big a deal . . . ?
Ideally it's pop off the cover, disconnect / unhook the aspirator, and connect / hook up the new one . . . I hope so . . . 'dear wife' says she wants it fixed, now . . .

Feb 06, 2006 (8:28 pm)
thanks very much . . . my doors are making a very irritating, and loud squeak that I would not think is at all related to their alignment, i.e. nothing a little WD-40 on the hinges won't solve, but after several 'squirts', I suppose I can't rule out anything. If the originl 'poster' or others with a similar experience, and cure (!!!), can reply, it will be appreciated . . . thanks agin . . .

The weather strip mounted to the body at the top of the rear doors rubs against the top metal part of the door edge on my 2000 Yukon and makes a loud squeak when the door opens or closes. A little silicon grease (not silicon sealer!) fixes that problem.
