    Hello Dissapointed11,
    It looks like you have already spoken to our customer assistance team and what they told you would be correct. We would need you to get your vehicle into the dealer for diagnosis before anything can be considered. Could you please private message me your case number from the agent you spoke to so I can take a look at it? You can get my email by clicking on my name. Thank you,

    I had an issue with my rear levelers shocks on a 2002 GMC Denali XL, replaced them and they are working great. I am still getting the "Service Suspension" error message on the dash. Hooked up the code reader and there are no errors displayed. Anyone have any ideas on how to clear the Message Center display?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was driving my 2006 Yukon XL and the "Service Stability" message came on (for a split second) then disappeared. It never came on again while driving home. I am going on a long trip in 3 day., Is this something I should worry about? Can it wait until I return from my trip? What does this error message mean? I have never seen it before in ANY car I have ever owned. Please, any response would help out....
    Thank you in advance.
  • try stepping on the brake 3 times quickly (don't start the engine but have the ignition on so everything else is working) See if that works, good luck!
  • I own a 2003 Yukon XL Denhali it has 102,000 miles on it and just this passed oil change in a matter of 6000 miles it burned through 4 Quarts of oil. It is not leaving any spots in my garage. it not smoking at all. the tail pipe has black soot in it. But it is running great. What could be the cause of burning oil?

    Hello Mmorris414,
    You can do what Mag44 suggested in resetting the error message. If you still are leery about your trip you can take it in and have the code read to see if there is anything that needs servicing before you leave. Thank you,

  • Just returned home from local mechanic, and he said that the issue might be the fuel pump, however, I had that replaced 18 months ago. They replaced the fuel filter, and tested, still the same. So now my fuel mileage is @ 6.8 mpg. They also replaced some of the O2 sensors. Any ideas on what it could be.

    Appreciate your time in this matter.

    We have a 2000 Yukon and when it is hot out side it will not crank on the first try, then the second try I have to push the gas peddle all the way to the floor then it will crank, but at that time i have to continue to hold the gas in or it want idle, but when it is cold it does not do this, sounds alot like the same problem that you were having. Did you find the source to the problem?

    I have this problem, new to site, cannot figure out how to get to the messages you state in your post " I have answered many questions on this "air temperature sensor" in a variety of messages on the "Chevy Tahoe (SUV)" board in messages #'s between 5563 - 5608.

  • Our 2008 Yukon XL 4WD also had this problem and it was "fixed" a few months ago. Now, the warranty is just a couple of months over 3 years and the mileage is just over 36,000 and the front passenger door lock is doing the same thing. The only way it will lock or unlock is to manually push/lift the lock. Is there a recall for this because I really don't want to pay for what is an obvious problem on the manufacturer's end of things.
  • I see that you have recently had your door locks repaired, and that you are starting to experience this again. Can we look into this further for you? Please send us an email with more information, including: your name/username and contact information (phone and address), the last 8 digits of your VIN and current mileage, the name of your involved dealership and a description of the times you've been in for this specific concern (lock/unlock problems). This will help us look into your vehicle's information for you to see if there are any open recalls, and to get a Customer Assistance Case established for you.

  • should of just went after market on those parts and saved over 1000 dollars...... thats just me though. I see it all the time that people take their cars to the dealers and they get sucked dry.
  • My rear door locks on my truck will NOT LOCK using the key fob(the front DOES), but they WILL UNLOCK with the key fob, but will not lock when engaging the gear shift or key fob. I have to manually push the lock buttons down on the rear doors before I hit the lock button on the key fob. NOt sure if this is part of a recall I saw about 2006 and 2007 Gm vehicles having electrical problems with the door locks and windows. The Yukon was NOT on the list, but hoping this is an easy and CHEAP fix! I have seen posts of bad "actuators" but not sure that is my problem being that they do work with the key fob and button on the drivers door to UNLOCK. Anyone have simular problems this way? Love my truck, she's got 74,000 on her, hope she can go another 74K!

    BTW- I had the oil consumption problem and my dealer went WAY up and above what I see folks here got to do the repair. Whole upper half of engine I think was practically replaced! I love my service manager at my dealer for being so patient and working so hard to help fix the problem. I feel very confident in my dealership's service!
  • Hello kutndry,

    We're glad to hear that you've had such a positive experience with your dealership thus far! Given the description of your door lock concern, it may be more of a problem with your actual key fob (although please don't consider this an official GM diagnosis as we rely upon our service departments for this).

    Let us know if you would like for us to check into anything for you! We can be reached at

  • I just purchased this truck used last month from a VW dealership and want to take care of it as best I can. It has 70,000 miles on it and came without any service history. I want to use synthetic oil and a good filter to try and get the most mileage out of the engine. From what I can tell it looks like the Delco PF48 is the default oil filter. Some threads on other sites state that the PF63 will also work and gives a little added filter surface area. The bypass pressure spec is slightly different but is it going to make any difference in combination with a synthetic oil? I like the idea of a larger capacity filter when stretching oil changes beyond the normal 3,000 miles as with conventional motor oil. I'm leaning towards using the Purolator PureONE PL22500 which crosses to the Delco PF63 and from reading online, has great construction and filtration. Thanks for any input.

    3,000 mile oil changes haven't been normal for twenty years.

    The factory recommended oil change for the 2008 Yukon Denali is every 10,000 miles. (link)
