I have a 2005 Gmc canyon that keeps losing power and i don't know when it's going to do it.I have a son to protect and we were almost hit as my truck lost it's power in a blind hill yesterday on the way to their school!Thank God the car swerved out of the road & everyone was alright.This was a wake up call!I have already paid out hundreds of dollars on having it put on a machine & being told it was the throttle body,so i had it replaced & thought it was fixed til it started with the same thing happening again which is 2 lights come on saying reduced power and traction default-idles badly!!-and loses all power,but still runs?I pull over to a safe area then turn it off and on a few times and it's fine.It is getting worse though by doing it a few times before i can get back home.Can anyone please help me?My husband has posted asking what could be wrong,but no luck yet.Anything would help.Thanks

My 2005 Gmc Canyon has been losing power,idles rough,and a light saying reduced power and traction default.I took it to the shop and had them put it on computer that pointed to be the throttle body so i replaced it and it didn't fix the problem.I got a response yesterday from someone telling me it was the pedal sensor and module at fault.I tried responding back to ask where the sensor and module is located and does this mean the control module or which module?Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

I recently took my 2005 GMC Canyon(87,000 miles)2.8L 4 Cylinder to the shop to be put on a computer that pointed to my throttle body because,out of the blue it loses power,idles very rough,and the engine light saying reduced power and traction default comes on when it starts acting up.I replaced the throttle body and it is still doing the same thing it did before putting a brand new on.I can pull over and turn it off and back on several times then it starts running normal again,but not for long til it starts acting up again.No one has no idea as to what could be wrong.Please help!Anyone out there have any idea's?I would greatly appreciate it.

Screws are hard to see don't I don't know size

Items checked no oil in radiator,no oil under neath anywhere on either side or on top of engine,no smoke, and no oil in tail pipe.it will only happen if you change speeds signifantly (example driving 65 pass a car accel to 75 then resume back with in 20 to 30 min engine oil light come on and 2qts are gone and no sign anywhere.)motor still runs just like new no power lose,i am the only one ever to drive,no kids ,hot rodding just mainly highway sometimes to town, and it has always had valvaline 5w30 put in at every oil change.i have had a few other problems but nothing i could not handle.example some times starts some times just cranks-ignition wore out,misfire code-gas pedal and throutle body,just cranks no start crank sensor,tail lights shorted out,grinding in front end-sealed wheel hubs,forward motion only grinding from rear-roll pin in rear end broke,a/c only works in one position-board behind switch is going out,driver side window switches will not work-remove panel take switches off and remove dirt from contacts that fixes those but this has me stumped any ideas or anybody heard of this problem.

What is the spark plug gap setting for a 06 GMC Canyon?

How are the clips removed from the current filter and how are the new ones replaced? Do they pop off? How do I open them to remove the filter?

My 2005 GMC Canyon 2.8L 4 Cylinder runs fine then out of nowhere it loses all power?I can pull over and shut it off then it runs normal again but sometimes it does it(loses power) several times a day and the reduced power light flashes then sometimes it will do it right away after getting the power back,then i pull back out and it does it again right away and sometimes it may not do it at all.Does anyone else have this problem or have an idea of what could be wrong?This is dangerous when i have kids after it smoothes back out and go to pull out onto the highway and it does it over and over.Please help.Thank you!

My check engine keeps coming on and it was missing at idle. The check engine diagnostic was misfire on cylinder two. i took it to a dealer they told me i had the wrong spark plugs. (I got them from Autozone). They supposedly cleaned the injectors. I seemed to be better after the repairs but then it started over again. i ran injector cleaner and used high octane gasoline. I still have the same problem. it misses on idle and cut out going up a hill. Yes the check engine light still comes on and off. I was told to clean the throttle body next. Do you have a page that shows me how to do this. I do not trust the so called experts at the dealership.

i put new calerbers on it and bleed the brakes and after i drive for a wile they start locking uagain

We purchased our 2004 from a private owner and the fan has never worked unless it is on 4 or 5 setting, so the heat is either blasting in the winter or the a/c is blasting in the summer. Occassionally it will work on 1,2,3 but that is very seldom. Tried replacing the fan resistor & wire harness but to no avail. Is there a recall on this? Is this a common problem in these vehicles?

Is the engine starter located under the engine?

The engine turned is turning over, but it won't start.

I assume it is a anti theft issue. We are not putting the wrong key in the ignition or putting it in wrong. But it won't start. If we wait 10 minutes, it usually starts but the last couple of days takes several times. Just bought the truck as used and that is the only problem we have encountered.

We have replaced the harness, blower motor, resistor, and all fuses under the hood. We still do not have any power to the any of these components.

Also, what kinds of noises does a worn CV axle make, I only hear noises when I am pulling up into my driveway, otherwise it drives ok. They found the problem at the outer CV joint where there was grease spewing out, I was able to stop the leak using a sealant for the moment.

I have a 2007 Gmc Canyon truck and My airconditoner went out at 116000 miles completely! Recently I replaced the resistor and the harness when it would only work on a high setting. but now it is done any suggestions? I need help could it be the blower motor relay or the fuse

THE 1st TIME IT HAPPENED WAS ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO; I DROVE TO A BANK AND PARKED. WHEN I RETURNED & TRIED TO TURN ON THE ENGINE, IT CRANKED BUT WOULDN'T TURN ON.(SIMILAR TO A BROKEN TIMING BELT PROBLEM);WHICH I TAUGHT HAD HAPPENED.
I CALLED FOR A TOW TRUCK AND WAITED FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.I DECIDED TO TRY STARTING MY TRUCK AGAIN AND IT STARTED AND RAN FINE. THIS HAS HAPPENED 2 TIMES SINCE.

GOT NEW CAP ,BUT ENGINE LIGHT STILL ON, GAS CAP MESSAGE WENT OFF

I took my truck in to get inspected but the check engine light came on first. they cleared the light and said it was a vacume leek. they couldn't find the leek they think i may have been the gas cap, but they told me i need to drive the truck for a while so the computer resets for the emissions test. So my question is how long do i have to drive it for that to happen?

my truckwill not start,has happened two times,and if I wait about 10 or 15 minutes it will not start.What could cause this?

had blower motor resister replaced at 35000 miles 1,2,&4 worked how ever 3 is out agen can some one tell me wear this resister is located so i can replace it my self

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?)

While attempting to replace the rear brakes on my vehicle I got to a point of removing the wheel drum and encountered extreme difficulty in doing so. Ispent hours trying to remove the drum and just finally gave up. What could possibly be the problem?
