good evening! just purchased a 2005 gmc yukon xl denali. after turning off the vehicle, after running the ac, i hear a hissing sound. opened the hood and it seems like it is the ac compressor. soon after there was a puddle of water under this spot. i have never owned anything but a car and know that the water puddle is probably normal, but the hissing?
thanks so much for your time and help!!!
#1057 of 1091 Chevy Trailblazer IC Problems
Jun 25, 2012 (7:26 am)
Hello Christina my name is Sherrall and I have have several problems with my 2005 Chevy Trailblazer:
1. the gas gauge went out in 2010
2. the car will stall at a stop light or drive through
3. the oil gauge went out April 2012
4. the truck is now idling low June 11, 2012
5. the speedometer went out June 22, 2012
I've taken my car to the dealership on two different occasions and they have told me that as it relates to the car stalling, they have no idea what is causing it. As far as the gauges are concerned I would have to have the instrument cluster replaced and it would cost me approximately $800. I took it to another shop last week and they told me I need a new ENGINE! This is my only means of transportation and I can not afford to replace the engine and have the instrument cluster fixed and whatever else is wrong with it. I have read many posts regarding this same problem and I'm curious to why GM has not had a recall for this problem? It is extremely hard for people to support "American made" if we don't take care of our "OWN!" I would appreciate any help you can provide me with this matter.
Thank you in advance.
My VIN# 1GNDS13S452119817
Mileage-141K (It was less than that when I took it)
Chevy Dealer-3707 West Colonial, Orlando, Florida

I can't speak for the stalling issue, but for the others they are most likely due to bad steeper motors in the instrument panel. You can have it rebuilt for around $240.00 on eBay... They require a deposit of $200.00 until you send them your old one back. They do excellent work and have a quick turnaround.
It is much better than the $800.00 the dealer wants..Good luck!!!
I know all this because I had the same problem with my 2005 Yukon XL.

Good evening chyna24,
Thank you for getting in touch with us here on the forum. While given the age and mileage of the vehicle we cannot promise any results up front, we are still willing to look into this situation further. Please send the following information to us at socialmediagm.com: your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 digits of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your involved dealership (I realize you provided some of this information here, but it helps us match an incoming email with a post in the forum).

I too have an '07 Yukon Denali. Today I had this no start condition happen for the first time. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that, being several instances on several different vehicles all with identical criteria, it appears to be a flaw in the design and not an individual vehicle problem as GM would have you believe.
The last thing I'm going to do is pay a GM tech to guess at the solution. It's sad that a 60 thousand dollar vehicle just won't start....but not nearly as sad as a company which sees multiple happenstance of a problem with their product and makes no effort to mitigate the problem for their customers.

I still own 99 Yukon, it is my first big truck that I am in love with and just want to keep it for fun, my 2010 Yukon VIN 1GKUxxxxxxxx2696 which is Certified and Major Guard protection plan with GMC, I am enjoying it, if any one complain about GMC, think about Toyota or Lexus or even Mercedes is no difference, I own 07 LX470 as well as 08 ML350, Denali is much better car and better design, feel the difference internal cheap material in the Toyota, special Honda. or if you think about Mercedes/Toyota being built in US or mexico instead of import from Japan or German....etc, they are no difference than GMC, things break down and life goes on.
#1065 of 1091 2003 Denali sat for 2+ years, mechanic claims fuel lines rusted ...
Aug 17, 2012 (9:46 pm)
My 2003 Denali sat (unfortunately) for approximately 2+ years (maybe 2 years, 3 months) without moving. It was recently towed (flatbed) and then towed again to a mechanic my father (not me) has been going to for years.
I asked him to replace the battery (which I provided) as well as make sure it was ready to run after sitting for 2+ years. He did not mention lubing the o-rings or priming the cylinders (cranking without ignition) before, draining the 2+ year-old gas, etc., etc., ... which had me feeling dubious about his expertise and/or "caring" from the get go.
Anyway, he came back to me a couple of days later saying that the fuel lines were corroded and it is leaking all over the place. I found that quite hard to believe considering the Denali had ZERO leaks (not a spot below it from where it was towed -- either time). I mentioned this to him and he said the stuff their adding to the salt during the winter has caused a great number of these to show up over the last year or two. The thing is, again this car sat (part of that time in a driveway) and was not driven in the snow, and the real kicker is, my area has seen little to no snow over the last two years.
So am I just out of my league here, or is he potentially full of it? I would really appreciate any insight someone with knowledge in this area could share.
