Bus, did you remove the battery cable boots and clean the cable ends?

It'* only three gaskets . LIM (4 actual gaskets) to head, UIM to LIM, TB to UIM. Guess I forgot how much they cost.

I could still do it in 2 hours.

I believe the dealer pays the mechanic about 4 hours labor for the job. And with this one going to the dealer w/o a warranty that'* a different pricing structure.

They dealer gave you a price but didn't confirm if they solved the stalling problem. Guess time will tell.

Default I miss my warranty...

When I bought this car, we wisely got the warranty with it, which paid for itself about 3 times over.
Without the warranty, it'* a bit more costly, for sure, but this is the first major snafu I've had since it expired.

What we found out:

The coolant was already leaking into the engine.
The crank sensor is faulty --- can't find the code.
The ignition module is faulty.

They'll be working on the sensor and module today. The intake; oil change; fuel filter change have all been done.
The price is now about $1,500.00 by the time we pay the 'Governor Pretend' ( Christine Gregoire, winner by 3 recounts... ).

Default How do you spell --- "KLUSTERPHUCK"?

The only glitch is they got the wrong ignition module, so I won't have the car until Monday...
I'll make other arrangements for my travelling needs over the weekend.

Default So, it'* now TUESDAY and ---

--- the story is:

They could tap on the ignition module that was in the car and it would die.
They got TWO AC-Delco modules in and both of them made the car run rough.
They are now contacting GM about the snafu and looking for a part that works...

It just can't be THAT difficult.

Default How ironic.

Not too long after I posted this, the Service Manager called to say it was fixed and runs good...to the tune of $1,532.41.
OK.
It was NAPA to the rescue!!!

on the 92, you don't have to take apart the uim from the lim. Saves time and money just to leave them together. There is no hidden bolt on the 92 N/A. just some FYI.
