*update* I went out to move it a little and it almost would'nt start and would'nt go forward or reverse, it's running really bad. I'm going to have to get towed to the dealer.

Well crap!

I can't believe it you just got it back from the dealer working on it. What are the odds?

I dont know what the odds are but it's starting to upset the waters around here , well I guess just me. If it's timing chain related I know for sure it's NOT because the oil never got changed, it be because of substandard parts! If it's computer related or coil related I'll feel better about it. I dont trust the OUTLOOK, I trust my '05 VUE 100 times more and even trust the '08 SIERRA I just bought one month ago 100 times more right now ( I feel like I've had it since new, it just feels right)(I had the OUTLOOK since new and that right now really does'nt feel right ). When this thing gets fixed it had better stay running good for a While. Last night was the first night since new it has spent outside . pouring rain, wind, who knows what else

I have said that since last year when the timing chain on my Outlook failed. I was meticulous in changing the oil between 3000 and 3500 miles. For the chain to stretch, which is what the service department told me it was, the parts used had to been inferior.

Then again a month after the timing chain was replaced it went in again and the engine was dropped again and the more repair work completed on it.

That pretty much made me very wary of dependability. Of course now what drove me to unload the Outlook was the continuous water leaks.

Yep Enclave of course NO SUNROOFS.

Good luck..

That's what I'm hoping that they might not have plugged somthing in tightly enough when they did the water pump job. A flatbed came and got it today but the dealer did'nt have time to look at since it happened on Sat and they were not open, he said tomorrow a.m. Hopefully not much fuel got dumped into the oil or worse yet the cats. I'll change the oil just to be sure, it does'nt even have 2K on yet. My local Car Quest let me barrow the OBDII which was an AWESOME tool, I can see it now I'd be plugging that thing in every other day if I had one

GM roadside assistance was pretty slick, this was second time I've used it, I had a flatbed within 1 hr of calling They even did a follow up automated phone call to check up on things.

yeah with those scanners. or like my laptop software---
when a code is set- you can generate a 'report' that you can print...
in the report will be the data the computer saved when the CEL came on..
stuff like Engine temp and other parameters.. kind of neat..
Almost like a data dump- at the time of the incident.
