#2 of 25 Shaking while idle
Jun 23, 2009 (6:59 am)
I just purchased a used 2005 Chevy Uplander LT model, I observed that when I'm idle/On-nuetral or waiting for a green light on an intersection the engine skakes a bit but when I step on the gas is goes away. I had a oil change done and a tune-up done as well but it still shakes. The good thing is the egine does not die. Does anyone experienced this in their Uplander? please let me know how you fixed it?

I have been having a similar problem Only about 50% of the time does it start first try. I am unable to use my remote starter that came with it as it is too unreliable. Very frustrated with this vehicle.

My Uplander went into the shop several times for this issue. The dealer re-programed the computer 3 times before telling me it was a normal shake. My guss is that is what they say when the problem can't be fixed. Filed a complaint with GM and nothing was done about it. Other than this problem, the Uplander has been ok.
#10 of 25 2006 Uplander Reduced Engine Speed
Dec 12, 2009 (11:36 am)
Just wanted to post that I too had a problem with my Uplander, I kept getting the error message "Reduced Engine Speed" had to pull over on the side of the road and restart the car. Just got my van back and it is working liking a new car. It was the Throttle Body and it was fixed by Triple D in Lombard, Il. Before you sink lots of money into a computer, battery etc.... try the throttle body first.

We have 2005 Uplander with 140K. It was hard to start and we replaced the fuel pump. It improved but still needs to be restarted 1 or 2 times before it stays on. any ideas?
