Known Problems

The throttle position sensor (TPS) on the GMC Yukon Hybrid and GMC Yukon Denali Hybrid is notorious for failure which causes:

This issue is related to the throttle position sensor on the gasoline engine, and can be caused by faulty wiring to the TPS, bad connection at the TPS, or a failed TPS. Note, this does not affect the hybrid drive system.

To correct this issue, the wiring harness, connector, and throttle position sensor must be inspected, tested, and/or replaced. The most common cause is a faulty TPS.

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.

Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every 60,000 miles.  Brake fluid that is dirty may cause problems in the brake system.

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
Our technicians highly recommend that the transmission is serviced every 30,000 miles to avoid problems and maintain optimal operating order.
