my canyon is using coolant. I took it to my local garage they pressurized the cooling system to 17 psi he said it dropped to about 8.5 psi and held there. he could not find any leak, he checked the oil and the plugs and there was no indication of oil. does any one know what may be wrong.

I would like to know if there is a way to release it from the stuck position, or if it has to be replaced, where is it located on the transmission? Would it be inside the Bell Housing or inside the fluid pan? Thanks

I have already replaced the battery. I can't locate the starter under the hood to even replace it. I am looking for other suggestions before I tear everything apart to find it. The starting problem happens frequently but not always.

it is pulling code P0601 i took to dealer they gave me an estimate over 600. dolars and said the ptm has to be replaced. my question isnt this covered under a recall that i just herd about please let me know i dont want to pay for something that is covered under this recall. it happens after truck is warmed up and sometimes at an idol i can restart after a couple of minutes but im afraid this will happen on the freeway

Been doing some searching and its seems to be a common problem but no specific fix. There is a transfer module, Transfer case actuator, motor and switches I get around well with cars and an avionics tech just need wire prints to isolate the problem. Any Ideas or fixes?

If I wait 10 minutes it will start. Is this a dealing only repair and approx.how much will it cost. Thanks hope to hear from you.

need the location of this part and how hard is it to fix

i do some mechanical work and fill i can fix if understanding were and how hard it is

I am loosing coolant. I cannot visually see any signs of a leak.
The coolant loss takes a long time to show up in the resevoir. The radiator itself is always full.
Is the Engine burning it? (small internal leak?)

the dealer said this is common for this truck. my mech. says it is caused by brake dust. he cleaned them and later that same day they were doing the same thing. any suggestions?

WELL, HERE GOES. I HAVE A 2008 CANYON CREW CAB, LOADED TO THE GILS (ALL OPTIONS AVAILABLE) BEEN A GOOD TRUCK FOR 34,000 MILES, OWNERSHIP NEW SINCE SEPT. 2008. I HAVE HAD THE TRUCK INTO THE DEALER TWICE FOR REAR BRAKE SQUEAL. ONCE AT 7000 MILES AND THEN AT 17,000 MILES. BOTH TIMES THEY SAID IT WAS CAUSED BY BRAKE DUST AND THAT IT WAS A NORMAL MAINTENANCE ITEM. HOGWASH. IT STARTED ABOUT 3000 MILE AND HAS NOT QUITE. I FOUND OUT TODAY THAT THE BRAKE SYSTEM WAS FROM ISUZU. REALIZING THAT GM BUILDS THE TRUCK FOR ISUZA, ISUZA WOULD OBIOUSLY SUPPLY SOME ITEMS TO GM. MY BELIEF IS THIS, IT IS POORLY DESIGNED, IT IS CHEAP AND UNDER ENGINEERED. LET'S FACE IT, IT WAS BUILT WITH COSTS IN MIND AND THE MATERIALS USED FOR BRAKE SHOES THESE DAYS ALSO ADDS TO THE SCOPE OF THE PROBLEM. NOW I'M AT A CROSS-ROAD. DO I INSTALL REAR DIC BRAKES ($1300.00 KIT FROM SSBC) AND MOVE ON OR GET RID OF IT ? UNLESS SOMEONE HAS AN ANSWER BETTER THAN THIS AND OBIUSLY GM DOES NOT WANT TO FESS UP, WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST? WHAT A SHAME TO SPEND HARD ERNED MONEY LIKE THIS AND NOT GET THE PLEASURE OF THE EXPENDITURE.

My machanic pulled the rear hubs and cleaned out all break dust. Brakes and hubs looked fine. Next day the squeal came back. Any ideas? Thanks
