Repair of the month June 2022

Our technicians work tirelessly behind the scenes every day and they certainly have their work cut out for them. Some days are more challenging and exciting than others, but they are always rewarding. 

June's Repair of the month:

Our super talented technician, Jay worked on this '08 Chevy Silverado 5.3 liter and the outcome was pretty spectacular. Here is a little overview. This '08 Chevy Silverado with 200k miles on it. The Client's complaint was that the check engine light was on and the vehicle was running rough at idle.  

After a full health inspection, and code scan Jay was able to read that the PCM (powertrain control module) Had a Code   p0301-Cylinder 1 misfire only at idle. After swapping cylinder one and cylinder two spark plugs and swapping cylinder 1 and cylinder 3 spark plug wires, the misfire stayed in cylinder 1. He then swapped cylinder 1 coil and cylinder 3 coil, the misfire still stayed in cyl 1. This led Jay  to hook up the advanced diagnostic scope, where he was able to conclude that cylinder 1 camshaft lobe was worn and lifter 

was sticking.  Upon tear down, he confirmed what he had seen from the scope. He replaced the worn parts, with new OEM parts, and was able to bring the vehicle back to life and get it running like new again.
