The catalytic converter may become plugged resulting in loss of engine power. General Motors has extended the catalytic convertor warranty on some models to 10 years or 120,000 miles. Please contact your local GM dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

Replaced catalytic converter. Head gasket blew shortly later. Replaced engine gaskets. Now the heater won't work. Still trying to figure that out.
