    Excessive oil use GM 2.4 Eco-Tec

    Not sure of the reasoning behind your questions, but the short answer is no. All we have are receipts for 13 quarts of oil over the last three months.

    Runs rough till warmed up

    Happy Friday! Let me start out by saying that computer codes only gives one the name of the street. It is up to the mechanic to figure out he exact street address. Replacing sensors just because they set codes get expensive and seldom solves the problem. Low fuel pressure can cause a lean...

    Excessive oil use GM 2.4 Eco-Tec

    Anybody hear if or knows the disposition of a class action law suit filed against GM regarding excessive oil consumption? This car goes through three quarts of oil in less than two months. Doesn't register on the dip stick, and the kicker, no oil light. Getting expensive.

    Hey Nick, The "s" thing is an atomizer that is positioned in front of the throttle body and allows one to reattach the air intake boot to seal everything back up during the intake cleaning part. The 2013 SRX doesn't not have a fuel pump relay. There is an empty spot for one, it shows one on...

    Can't find a fuel pump relay.

    Thx for your prompt reply Nick. I haven't searched other than under the hood on the SRX. I'll check out the back. Thx, this will be helpful. I did find three fuse boxes in the XTS. Dan states fuse 67 under the hood disables the fuel pump. That fuse is labeled CCM (20amp). I would have...

    CCM (20amp) is the description for fuse 67. Seems that it should read FCM.

    Can't find a fuel pump relay.

    Anyone know how to disable the fuel pump on a 2013 Cad. XTS and SRX? Both have the 3.6 engine. Looking to preform a complete intake and fuel rail cleaning. Part of the process is disabling the fuel pump. Looked in three fuse boxes, no fuel pump relay.
