Being that I can't get there from here. Does this affect only L36'*?

From my post above:
Quote:
Defect Summary: ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 3800 V6 (L36) ENGINES
But I saw in the earlier (Jan. 2005) thread that some thought it affected L67'* too. From the text of the recall, I get the impression that the FPRs for those years were not all from the same source (Delphi) and may not have affected every vehicle.

EDIT: OK, looked it up on GMPD. Assuming they have the P/Ns correct, the L67 uses a different P/N than the L36. In fact there are two different P/Ns listed for the N/A too:

Sorry...scanned quickly. Please change topic to reflect the actual statement if it really does or doesn't apply to L67.. seems up in the air.

We wouldn't want to scare our SC'd people if we don't need to.

Already changed topic once..where were you?

I'll change it again.

BTW, look up at my previous post. I edited it to include actual info, not conjecture.

I'd like to point out publicly (even though it'* slightly off-topic) that this is what these Gearheads do every day. Long-term issues and difficult problems are constantly being discussed in the Gearhead Forum (which only they and the Admins/Mods can see).

Excellent topic guys.

Haha. No but really, should I take it to a dealer to see if it has been replaced, or is this not a recall?

You can also call the dealer, ask for the Service Manager, and have him run your VIN. They have to keep a record at GM of the VIN of each car that recieves recall work.
