Question Answered: How to repair replace a injector circuit open culynder 1

specific diagnosis would be required - as only having the code present does not tell if the open in the circuit is in the injector its self, the connector, or the wiring harness its self.

Question Answered: My battery gauge is fluctuating , if I run it without a/c it seems OK, but if I turn on a/c it goes down
February 19, 2015, 08:46 AM
Chevrolets are known for having a minor fluctuation in the electrical system. this is normal and ok typically. If the fluctuation is more than a "ripple", you may have an issue developing. Your issue may be an alternator going bad, battery loosing a cell (AAA battery tester is a capacitance tester, find someone with a carbon pile tester. the AAA tester does not actually cycle a load on the battery, it tests internal resistance.), A/c compressor going bad drawing too much current. It could also be the gauge going bad. have the operational voltage checked independently (externally)
Question Answered: Can you purchase an extended warranty after your warranty has expired?
February 02, 2015, 09:27 AM
The onstar system can be purchased for a monthly fee. roadside assistance, your best bet may be to utilize the AAA - the service is fantastic and quick to boot. Additional warranty coverage can be purchased from various sources (dealership, aftermarket companies, etc) - but is usually just break down coverage. Be wary and read ALL the fine print if you decide to pursue an extended warranty package (the use a lot of legal fine print to weasel out of covering various parts) Good Luck
