How do I change a rear running light bulb on my 2002 Yukon?

I am attempting to replace a camshaft sensor for my mom and dad. I can't find consistent information on where it is located. Where is it and how can I get to it and how do I know I have the right part when I disconnect? Pictures would help a ton!! They have a 5.3 L engine.

I need to replace my Air Conditioning Belt on my 05 Yukon. Should I replace any of the tensioners too? I am a recovering toyota addict and know that when I replace the timing belt you always replace the tensioner - is there something similar with the GMCs serpentine belts?

repair time for driverside valve cover gasket for gmc yukon.

Hi..I have a 95 GMC Yukon..failed the low idle portion of the test (NJ) Reading was 726...Standard is 220..Co% reading was .73..standard is 1.20...The truck passed the high idle portion of this test..Just wondering what I can do to bring it down..egr valve was replaced exactly 4 years and about 30,000 miles ago..converter was replaced 2 years ago..however..the repair shop put on smaller exhaust pipe and a generic (small) converter. they did the last emissions test for state inspection, so I dont know for sure if it passed, for all I know they put the wand into another vehicles tail pipe..anyway, just need to know besides a basic tune up what I should do?

I have a 92 youkon and the flywheel is broke but i need to know what type of transmission i have so i can fix the problem.

Our 2002 Yukon has 74,000 miles. Recently, it's started a worrisome thing. When we accelerate from a full stop, for example at a traffic light, the car seems to make little "chugging" type noises. My husband describes them as almost like little hiccups -- not the sound, but the frequency because they aren't constant and once you get above about 15 mph they stop. We've noticed that this only happens in 4WD, not 2WD,and it seems to be getting more frequent. Accelerating quickly or slowly doesn't seem to matter. We've had our service station look at it 3 times and they can't find anything and say the car is in great shape. What should we do?

My air conditioniner only works on high speed and it blows a little bit when ur on the highway and does not always work the rear air always works good though

Only a very small amount of fuel comes out of the line when I turn the ignition. I can hear the pump, so I guess
it is not the pump relay.

Could the pump be bad if I can hear it? (only stays on
for about 5 seconds)

Oh, I have opened up the fuel line between the tank and
the filter, so the filter is out of the system.



do you have a diagram on the procedure to r&R evaporator?
I am going to do this project my self as I have more time than money.

While we were out or town "service 4wd" light came on. It had done this before when we hadn't used the 4WD in a while, so on a back road in Yellowstone we shifted into 4WD Hi and Low, everything did fine and went back into 2 normaly. Warning went off. The morning we were going to leave to head home we loaded up and put the vehicle in reverse to back out of parking place and the transfer case was in neutral. Would not go into 2WD immediately. We shifted into 4Hi then to 2WD, backed up to unlock 4WD and everything seemed to be fine. When we were two blocks from hotel, pulling onto the interstate it shifted back into neutral. After conferring with our family-all of whom are in auto repair-we drove home in Auto 4WD. When we got home transfer case would shift into and out of Auto, 2WD and 4Hi seemingly normaly-just would not stay in 2WD. Trying to shift into 4Low it would clunk like in tried to shift in and then back out. On dealer recommendation replaced transfer case when that didn't solve the problem replaced accuator. Now we seem to have Auto 4WD (at least in the 2WD app) and 2WD. Wont shift now into 4Hi or 4Low. No codes show. Any suggestions?

is the manufaturer responsable for bad cadillac converters up to a certain year our yukons only 8 years old. is there a recall?

I have a 1993 GMC Yukon. The rear hatch (upper window) will not open. The relay kicks on like it is unlatching, but when the switch is released the latch sounds like it is closing again. Where is the motor located for the latching mecanisim? Also is there a possibility that it is in the switch or one of the relays?

What type of shop should I go to to get my pins an bushings replaced on my front driver and passenger doors? How much should this cost?

Our 99 Yukon will blow cold air out of the rear but not in the front. Has a new control unit in dash, compressor works fine. The cold air is not coming through the vents in the front. Would like to know what problem could be, and if there is somewhere I can find a service diagram of what's under the dash, so I may be able to fix it myself. Thank you.


would my wheel speed sensor cause my transmission to down shift if the speedometer is readin 50 then drops down to 30, or would that be something else?

I'm a Canadian but using my Clearwater Fl., Zip Code because I don't where the site is to register my complaint in Canada. I have owned GM product approx (30)since 1978 along with a few cadillacs one of which I ordered brand new from the factory.This one leaked oil on new garage floor from day one and GM dealer never fixed it. I took it back about 6 times and to no avail they even said they did a dye test on it. I ended up in small car mechanic shop only to find out the wrong pan gasket was installed on it from the factory. I now have a 2008 yukon slt and at 37000 km one of my locks in the back stopped working completely and of course I only noticed that that was happening because i thought that it was myself not pressing twice and doing something wrong and would press again and it would work. I was told that it was no longer under warrantie after 30000km. At 72000 the second door lock unit started to give me a problem same of the first one sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.The only thing now I am smart enough to know after the last experience.I hate to think of how many times my yukon was left unlocked while thinking it was. It is hard to imagine that GM won't step up to the plate and admit there is a problem and that the equipment is faulty. God only knows when the day will come when I can't unlock the car at all from the outside.This should be classified as a security issue and could prove fatal in the event of an accident needing to exit the vehicule fast by all 4 doors.all I have to say is that I have been a lot more loyal to GM than they have been to me. This is the straw that broke my confidence in the product. I don't want to go back to the dealer to be told the warrantie is over and I don't want to give them the satisfaction of paying them $100.00 an hr for a faulty part.That's being taken as a sucker. If GM only warrantie their entry mechanism for 30000 km then I don't want the product anymore. I am almost due to trade and I guarantie it is going to be another car maker. I can write a book on problems I encountered through the years as a business man and no time to fight back in many instances. How do I access the rear door mechanism.

What's the correct tire pressure for this vehicle?
