Service Bulletin: #07123A Engine Intake Valve Seat/Misfire

Disclaimer
The community here at 355nation.net urges you to please use caution and seek professional assistance when performing modifications to your vehicle. Before attempting any modification it is advised that you refer to your Colorado or Canyon service manual or contact a certified mechanic as not all GMT355 trucks are the same. The staff and the associated members are in no way responsible for any damages, injuries or other harm inflicted to your vehicle or yourself which may result in attempting these modifications. The posts and content presented on this site reflect in no way the views of 355nation.net or it’s ownership.




The Following is a GM direct letter to owners of the Colorado's and Canyon's listed years 04-06, both 4 cylinder 2.8L and 5 cylinder 3.5L trucks. Breakdown of specific Vin inclusion as follows.

Note: This condition may be diagnosed through several DIY methods.

(1) let the truck sit at idle for about 30min. if equipped with aux. and access. equipment such as A/C, systems, lights ect. Enable all. Observe trucks idle; a rough idle should lead to further diagnosis.

(2) A compression check can be used, though more invasive than a cylinder leak-down test. Either will work. Observe compression/pressurized cylinder for a decline in pressure within, be sure the cylinder is at TDC on the compression stroke as you are testing it.

***WARNING*** If you are not experienced in performing these tests bring you truck to a dealer, leave it to them. It is free as covered in attached Scans of the GM direct Recall, and letter to owner.



LETTER TO OWNER




RECALL INFORMATION







V.I.N. Locations are on various parts of our trucks. the simplest to find is underneath the glass, by the drivers side of the windshield; If difficult to read as it sometimes becomes, another copy of the VIN is on the inside of our drivers side doors. I believe a third is also in the Glove Compartment where our vehicle specific information is held.

On my 2006 Canyon, 4 cyl., they replaced the whole head. I wasn't noticing much in the way of problems so I waited until I had 99,900 miles on it and took it in. They verified that it was affected and took care of it.

I've got an 07' 3.7L that had 2 bad valve seats, they swapped the head and it took 3 days.

I just bought a used '04 engine and the dealer had no record of the repair. I wonder if it's good or not?

i dont see any way they would know, and thats post valvetrain... dont say anything, if they question you, deny any knowledge of it...

also to know if you have the issue, they will perform and cylinder LEAK DOWN test, it's a fairly simple, not so invasive procedure, however they will charge diag time. if the issue is not present.

Doesn't matter if the cel is illuminated, if there was a cel there will be a memory (history) code.... also if its intermitten a possible Pending code... they will find the code if it is there, the leaking around the head could be multiple things... also if you have the "lobby" rough idle, take it in, at the worst it costs you a lil. bit of money. If you wait til you pass your warranty, you'll be kicking yourself.

I personally haven't looked into the issue on my own vehicle... i work on cars all day long, if it starts and drives, i could care less... for someone who isn't willing to spring out the full cost for repair out of pocket, or do it in their driveway... just take it in.

Re: Service Bulletin: #07123A Engine Intake Valve Seat/Misfire

This is simple. Whether you are first second or third owner, the warranty covers the vehicle, not the owner. Also if you are over the limit by even a mile, they can reject your claim for warranty work, hoever if you are in good standing and a regular customer, they do have some swing with GM, beyond that your looking at getting the service departments DIRECT number to GM to inquire upon after warranty work performed for warranty labor.

If you call up your local dealer, just explain to them you became aware of a TSB for intake valves on xxxx through xxxx year colorado's and they will ask for your vin, also they will tell you to schedule it in so they can perform the cylinder leak down test. Also they should tell you if no issue is present you will be charged the labor/diagnostic charges.

Re: Service Bulletin: #07123A Engine Intake Valve Seat/Misfire

I have a question for anyone that has had this done. I was going to bring mine in and have it done, already talked to my service advisor and he said he would check it out. The one thing I was worried about though is if they reflash the computer after replacing the head. I have a tune and don't want it wiped out.

I doubt they will, unless the vehicle calls for an update already, which is doubtful.. most likely they will reset the KAM so the sensors can relearn their values and strategies accordingly to adapt to the correcting factors, such as air flow, volume... ect.

Do you think they will void this claim if you have oversized tires?
