#266 of 1099 2004 YUKON XL DINALI
Jul 17, 2005 (8:54 pm)
I HAVE READ ACTUALLY HUNDREDS, HEARD ABOUT THE SAME, ABOUT THE XL DINALI. 1ST OFF, THERE IS NO, NO, PERFECT CAR. IF THERE WAS , WE ALL WOULD BUY ONE. I HAVE OWNED SEVERAL SUV'S, FROM MY JEEP CHERROKE LTD, TO MY RANGE ROVER, WHICH I SOLD.
FOR ABOUT 50K, TOTAL, I GOT A NEW 2004, YUKON XL DINALI. THIS CAR IS ABOUT A 8-9, ON A 10 SCALE. EVERYTHING IS THERE. I ORDERED A FULLY LOADED XL DINALI, AND PUT 22'S ON IT AND I LOVE IT.
REMEMBER, THIS YUKON XL DINALI, IS A FULL-SIZE SUV. AGAIN, IF LOOKING FOR A FULL-SIZE SUV, THIS IS THE CAR. IT HAS ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, LIKE MY RANGE ROVER, BUT NOT THE INTERIOR SIZE I NEEDED IN A, AGAIN FULL-SIZE SUV. INSIDE, THE 2 TONE LEATHER, LOOKS AND FEELS FINE. IT HAS POWER, AND THE BRAKES TO MATCH. PLUS , IT LOOKS GREAT!!!!
NOW IF YOU WANT TO BE PICKY, ANYONE, MYSELF INCLUDED, CAN FIND SOMETHINGS TO GRIPE ABOUT. THIS IS ALSO TRUE FOR MY RANGE ROVER. FOR A FULLY LOADED XL DINALI, WHAT MORE CAN ONE ASK FOR.
ALL CREATURE COMFORTS AND MORE, ARE THERE. I AM VERY PLEASED W/THIS SUV. SURE IT CREEKS AND COULD BE BETTER IN FIT AND FINISH, BUT, AGAIN, FOR ALL YOU GET, ONE CANNOT COMPLAIN.
MY PERSONAL FALIURE IN THIS SUV, IS NO PARKTRONIC!!!!!
FOR A SUV THIS SIZE, GMC NEEDS TO PUT PARKTRONIC ON IT. NOW FOR ABOUT $1000.00, I HAVE A FACTORY LOOKING PARKING SYSTEM.
ALTHOUGH MY DINALI IS LESS THAN A YEAR OLD,(BOUGHT IN AUG), THE CAR HAS HAD 2 OIL CHANGES TO I, AND THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WAS A FAULTY AIR-PRESSURE SENSOR. BESIDES THAT, I AM VERY,VERY,PLEASED IN MY PURCHACE.
REMEMBER, YOU ARE NOT GETTING A ROLLS-ROYCE, OR A YUGO. YOU ARE GETTING THE BEST FULL-SIZE, SUV OUT THERE.

I'm still at a lost for a good full size SUV. The Denali looks good, but seeing all these problems scares me. The GM employee discount for everyone program has got me set to get an 05 Denali, but I'm not sure. The Navigator isn't worth the extra grand in my opinion, the Escalade is a Denali and not worth shelling out an extra 8 grand. The Range Rover is to costly considering it has problems as well. A freind got one for the name more then anything and has had a host of electrical problems. The QX56 is my favorite, but that truck has major mechanical issues. The Lexus LX 470 seems to be the best of the bunch in terms of quality, but the designed is dated and that truck is over 70 grand now. Some one help with suggestions. Like most here I'm busy with work and family and the last thing I need is problem transportation.

Check the bulb sockets on rear tail lights. You might notice rust in one of them, that's what I had on my 05 DXL. If thats not it then you might need the wire harness in the steering column, had that on a 1982 Monte Carlo.

RE: Grinding noises...
I too have a 2001 Denali doing the very same thing. I pulled into the Dealership out of town while traveling. They informed me that the wrong type of oil was used in the transfer case. The 2001 model is the only model that uses ATF type 3. It is recommended for the 2001 model only. When a different oil is used in the transfer case service, it dries out when heated and ruins the clutch system within the transfer case. The filter in the transfer case gets clogged which heats up and creates the grinding of the clutch. I just had my clutch system fixed and have proof of the service where they put the wrong oil in the transfer case. It has only been doing this for 3 months but came out to $2000 to fix. I hope this helps you. Get a sample of the oil and the clogged filter. We are seeing if this is covered under warranty or errors and ommissions by the dealership.

I have an 01 that had the same problem. They applied an updated computer patch and the problem went away.

I believe that this is a factory defect in your vehicle if it has a GEN III engine and an electronic throttle body. The is a Service Bulletin ID # 1580607 that explains the problem. In simple terms, they used an old intake manifold with an extra IAC passage and this unused passage causes the whistle. Probably would have cost $1.98 per vehicle to design one specifically for this engine.

your problem is more than likely carbon buildup in the throttle bore. you can carefully clean the bore with the reccomended GM cleaner, or go to a local lube place where they usually have a kit to clean it($30?).

Monroe now makes replacement shocks for the Denali. Be careful to get the correct GM part number, because Monroe makes 2 different flavors for both the front and rear.
