engine idles to rough told it was a cylinder misfire what does it involve is it expensive
Cylinder 5 misfire , Pepboys said it needs a valve job , for $3400 and now GMC dealer says the head is leaking and it needs a new head, possibly a cracked head?, I read that this is a common problem and GM has changed this head five times so far, so they are prob trying charge me for a new version head and a vale job , $3500 to $4000, this car is way too new for this kind of problem, I don't tow anything with the Envoy or drive it hard, my wife actually drives the kids to school in it. There should be a recall on this problem, instead of keeping it quiet and letting the customer pay for this, I'm not sure what to do, but I know I won't buy another GMC.

misfire cylinder one, check engine on, "turn engine off" warning sign. no pressure. car white cloudy smoke, irregular idle, loss of power. warranty expired.
My check engine light came on. I took my car to a local mechanic and had it checked out, the mechanic plugged his device in my car and it read misfire in cylinder #4. The mechanic looked further into the problem and found out that cylinder #4 read a low 70lbs of compression and cylinder #3 has 120lbs of compression. He explained to us that the low cylinder compression was the reason why our car shakes while idling and runs rough when accelerating. He advised us to buy a new car or get a new engine.
