Because I'm the apprentice. I'm the one still in school. I'm the one still learning.

I may have an idea of what might be wrong, but that doesn't mean I know how to do the diagnostic.

Powertrain warranty, cha-ching! GM pays 6.8hrs, customer pay would have been around 10 hours, oh well, I can rattle those out like no tomorrow since I've done so many 3.1/3.4/3.5/3.9 head gaskets in the past 7 years. 4 hours later the customer was down the road.
the 3500/3900 having the head gasket issues too, i thought they had it figured out? i had a late 03 3400 monte and put 170k on it without doing at all to the engine

I was right. According to the other techs he did a fuel pressure test not even 5 minutes after I left. Found a bad fuel filter.
