Well, my brother Matt took the VIN'* into the local Pontiac Dealer for RPO code print out, and the GM Service History. Found out we both have open recalls for the FPR'*. They said it won't cost us a penny, but he didn't tell them how many miles were on our cars (well out of warranty).
Are we going to get a bill in the end?
I want to get it done because I do have a hard start every 3-4 starts and it'* kinda has me worried. At least I have full coverage so if it burns down like ScottyDL'* my insurance should cover it (hopefully). I'm going to call a dealer I really like dealing with Monday to set up an appointment and am kinda thinking I'll have them put a new Purge Canister sensor into the trans as the car has a code for it (P1811).

as long as there is no time or mileage limit [if there is, you must be in that limit], then you shouldn't get a bill. If you bitch about it, they may do it for free, don't quote me on that, dealers are like the devil.. only some of them have nice cars.

Recals are done through VIN #'* and a recal period. If you qualify and get it done during the period, you should be fine.

Was it the FPR itself or the FPR diaphragm?
