#249 of 297 Stablitrak Error Message/Check Engine Light
Dec 27, 2012 (9:19 pm)
I have a 2012 GMC Terrain 4wd with approximately 12,000 miles. Starting in November when ever I drive on the express way 55-65 mph, The Service Stabilitrak light will come on then the check engine light will blink on and off. Once I get to my destination once I restart the vehicle all the lights will be off. I have been the dealership on four different occasions 11/15, 11/17, 12/7 and 12/26.
The first time the vehicle misfire on cylinders 2,4,6. The codes were cleared and the light came back on 11/17. That visit the same misfire, The dealership found loose front breather duct. Secured the duct and clear the codes. Third visit Code P0300 Misfires again cylinder 2 and 4. Use a borascope to inspect both cylinders for collant/dye. Pressure test and replaced the intermittent ignition coil, spark plug. Last visit Code P0300. Carbon deposits on valves. Misfire again. Clean and Decarbonize and clean fuel system. I am beyond frustrated with the issue that I am having.. I feel that that is a bigger issue with the engine..Thoughts/Advise Please

Hi I was wondering if this problem was ever solved?? I just purchased a 2013 have had it for 6 days and am now driving a loaner car because my car was stalling out. The dealership has been helpful and kept my car for a couple of days because they were not experiencing the problem. today i got a voicemail that it stalled on them and they are going to run some test to see what could be wrong. I am just nervous I bought a car that is going to constantly be in the shop.

The vehicle is still at the shop since Friday. I am currently in a loaner. I was told that GM authorized them to open the engine and look further into why this issue keeps happening. I was told I would be without my car for awhile, since they may have to put a new engine in it.

My 2011 stalled out also. It is a terrible vehicle; I made a huge mistake purchasing another GM product. The dealer replaced the camshaft actuator - seems to be running now - this is the first vehicle I have ever had that stalled out - and I am 63 years old. The 2011 vehicle has the electric door locks switch located somewhere in the area of the radio - they have since moved it back. The best thing is the gas mileage - which I continue to complain about. The dealer was authorized to do a "consumption test" and guess what - it does 38.9 mpg! I have asked GM where the gas is going since my calculations indicate 24-26!
I could go on and on about how much I despise this vehicle - but it is not worth it. I sincerely wish someone would hit it in a parking lot and total it! At my age, I don't trade cars very often so I am stuck with it!

I just bought my 2012 6-cyl Terrain a week ago, and tonight the Service Stabilitrak light came on along with the message "Engine Power Reduced", and I was reduced to little more than a glorified parade car. I had just gotten off of the interstate when this happened, so needless to stay I was counting my lucky stars it hadn't happened there. It's still infuriating to have this happen only a week after I bought what was supposedly a "clean" vehicle. Guess the warranty will now be kicking in...what a joke.

At least you were still able to drive it! My Terrain QUIT totally - first vehicle I ever had do that. It was the "camshaft" actuator that had to be replaced. It is a very frustrating vehicle.
