#287 of 301 Low oil pressure , help needed !!!!
Feb 29, 2012 (7:53 am)
I need help, we just got this 03 escalade (with suposely 109.000 miles on it), 2 and half hours away from home, got on the road.. about a hour and half in the road... check control center light came on , the low oil pressure came on shortly after,........ we got off the high way, trying to find a gas station.... the car had smoking coming out of the distribuitor and died, we turn on again and a lot of smoke came out of the distribuitor. We got to the gas station, my husband put 2 quarts of motor oil in it, we think that the previous owner just didnt change the oil or maintain the car at all... it appeared that no oil was in it, we made another hour on the high way, the warnings on the dash ware there still. Getting off of the high way, at the stop light... the smoke came on again off the distribuitor, the car died again, we turn on ... same thing happend all over again, well , we made it home. Now we are worried about what could be wrong with it, we dont want to go around spending money and have this to keep happening. I was thinking about having it fully tuned up (by our mechanic that comes to our house)... then taking it to a shop to be put on a computer.
I would love to hear your advice on this. Thank you in advance.

I know that this may have been a while, but I was wondering what happened in your chase, cause I'm having a similar issue where I'm hitting the gas, and the car does not move, and I tried all shifts. I also have a 2006 Escalade. Love that car, but I'm not feeling too good about it right now. Someone said it is the Tranny, someone else said it may be the Gear Shift Linkage. So not sure what to do. Can you please tell me how yours turned out?

Good morning isaac9,
I'm sorry to read about the difficulties you're having with your Escalade. Are you planning on getting this looked into? We're happy to look into this further with you if you like.

Yes, I did have it looked at by one Transmission shop, and they said it was the transmission, but I do not trust mechanics, so I do want a second opinion. How can you assist me without me having to sell my soul?...lol

The following is our process:
We would set up a Service Request through our department (would need your name/Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your preferred dealership). If the transmissions shop you visited was not one of our dealerships, we would have you set up a diagnostic appointment with your preferred dealer (would involve a diagnostic fee) for them to look into the vehicle and determine the source of the transmission concern you're having. From that point, we would look at what it would take to repair the vehicle and we would consider any available options. I can't promise up front what the end result of the case will be, but our priority is to resolve any concern that you're experiencing and have you leave satisfied with your vehicle.
If this sounds like something you are interested in pursuing, please send the request information to socialmediagm.com and we will go from there.

I realize your message in nearly 3 years old but what did you ever find out about the service stability system issue? I too have the rub, rub feel and my service stability light randomly comes on. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I realize your post is a few years old. Hopefully you've gotten rid of your Escalade. I'm sure ready to get rid of mine! I'm having the same problems with the brakes locking up and the growling/grinding noise. What did you find out about those issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The problem with my Escalade was the Transfer Case if I remember correctly. Hope this helps.

Good afternoon dms1815,
It looks like you've already gotten some feedback from kasmir; if we can look into recall or warranty information for you, or if you would like for us to be involved in the process of you working with a dealership to get this looked into, please send the last 8 digits of your VIN as well as a brief summary of the situation to socialmediagm.com
All the best,
GM Customer Service
