White smoke on start up coming from tail pipe. Both the dealer's service manager and shop foreman witnessed the smoke. They claim that no problem exists, but to just monitor fluid consumption.
White smoke coming from tailpipe. I was advised that a bulletin was issued for this problem. They installed a new valve cover on the same side as the PCV valve. Have not noticed any problems or smoke since the work was completed.

Truck runs out with DIC showing 68 km DTE, and fuel guage shows 1/8 tank left. Dealer replaced fuel sensor in tank. Now truck runs out of fuel when DTE says 105 KM DTE. Problem is worse now, Fuel gauage over 1/8 tank left, low fuel light does not come on.
Engine oil cooler lines leaking at crimp Hose-tube near radiator. Dealer says not leaking bad enough. I am going to call GM and complain. Vehicle runs out of fuel above 1/8 tank on gauge and 76L used on DIC. Worse now than before fuel level sensor was changed. Dealer says Diagnostics shows 60% and fuel gauge says 60% so must be ok. I will take truck to them when about to run out.
replaced leaking engine oil cooler lines, previously took to a different dealer who said "normal leakage" fuel pump and sensor replaced to fix problem -ran out of gas at 1/4 tank, finally fixed problem 5th time in 4 repair.
O2 Sensor triggered the engine light. The engine light subsequently came on again and was diagnosed as the sensor on top of the fuel tank. The sensor was replaced and the engine light was cleared about a week ago and has not come on since.
Engine light on. First time was an emission sensor. Second time was a gas tank venting valve at the top of the gas tank. Engine light on again. Still haven't had a mechanic look at it.
Engine light came on again and was reset by mechanic. Am told that the error message is the venting valve at the top of the gas tank.
