    4 months till warranty ends, anything i should have looked at/fixed?

    well not sure how this goes but only has 37 K miles and just thrown a code po155 (o2 sensor) from what i heard its covered from the electriacal section. but just want to know if there is anything elese i should say to them to fix that people have had problems with.


    and heard that cats go bad on these and had them check the history and seen that it was replaced 2 times.

    anything else would be great.

    If it's a auto i'd try to think up any excuse to bring it in for a free rebuild...just keep complaining about it Same goes for the rear...any little sound or leak i'd bring it in.

    I wouldn't worry about the cats..they're covered under the federal emissions warranty for 8 years/80k miles. GM also extended the cats warranty to 120k...not sure on the amount of time though. If you ever throw a p0420 or p0430 code bring it to the GM dealer.

    I can't say for sure bro...all I know is the majority of dealers will do what they can to get out of doing warranty work. I'd put the stock air box back on just in case...hopefully you kept it for this and any smog testing. I've heard of dealers giving shit about k&n filters though...some people over oil them and it can cause problems.

    Drain all the oil out of your engine, save it, run it till it blows, pour used oil back in motor and go WTF to the dealership and demand new motor.



    Does that make me a bad person?

    I have been to Matick on Telegraph and Lariche but not with this car. Matick worked on my IROC a long time ago and I was happy so I would just pick one.

    im hoping a lot of these posts are tongue in cheek jokes. I work at a dealer as a technician and would really not appreciate having to do an engine job for warranty pay cause some clown wants to screw us cause his warranty is running out. but theres no way that would get covered either when we find all the metal in the oil pan.
