Question Answered: air conditon repair
April 30, 2010, 10:22 AM
Very vague question. Does the air blow warm air or not blow anything at all? if the air is warm, this means you are low on freon 134a. You either have a leak or none at all. If no air is blowing, you either have a blown fuse, failed blower motor or relay, failed ac compressor, failed ac belt or maybe even something else

Question Answered: Insturctions on how to replace the water pump
April 30, 2010, 10:09 AM
there are 3 different types of engines in this vehicle model. for a v8 5.0 here are the instructions. standard labor is 3.2 hours w/ AC and 3.0 w/o 1. Remove air cleaner and intake duct assembly, including crankcase ventilation hose. 2. Drain cooling system, then remove radiator. 3. Remove drive belts, fan, spacer and water pump pulley. 4. Disconnect heater and bypass hoses from water pump. 5. Remove water pump attaching bolts and the water pump. 6. Reverse procedure to install. Tighten water pump retaining bolts to specifications. NOTE: All water pumps have a sealed bearing integral with the water pump shaft. The bearing requires no lubrication. A bleed hole in the pump housing allows water that may leak past the seal to be thrown out by the slinger. This is not a lubrication hole. If the pump is damaged and requires repair, replace it with a new pump or a rebuilt one. remember this may differ if you have a 4.9 or 5.8

Car Review: 2004 GMC Yukon XL 1500
January 29, 2010, 09:50 AM
This is a quality SUV for out of the city living. We work on many of these, and all of our customers love them. brakes can get quite expensive for repairs but should be expected with this size of vehicle.. Great for towing..(I use to tow my trailer) and comfortable for hauling many passengers. I give this SUV a 4/5 because of the cost of repairs.

sometimes just because someone you know has repaired a similar component, doesn't mean it will be the same on your vehicle. Always do your research first
