  1. Weathertech front floor liners For Sale

    Parts, Accessories & Upgrades
    I will also throw in 2 Sylvania Long Life 3157 bulbs, still new in package ($7.49 at Autozone), which are the "front side marker light" bulbs. Was about to change one of them out but didn't get to it. And if you want, also free, I have a Duralast C1555 coil pack which is one year old and has 20k...

  3. Weathertech front floor liners For Sale

    Parts, Accessories & Upgrades
    Just sold my 2008 Enclave. I ordered these floor liners the same day I bought the car. I will scrub them down but they have 10 years of use so they're not going to look new but they will work just fine at keeping dirt and water off of your carpet. They are tan colored, and cost $109.95 new on...
  4. P0302 and compression test 75psi

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Thanks to everybody on this website who has helped me out. Wish I could have fixed it but... traded in the Enclave for $4000!
  5. Service Stabilitrak solved. read this.... its odd

    Engine & Drivetrain
    i have a Cyl #2 misfire on my 2008 Enclave and the "Service Stabilitrak" and "ABS" error lights turn on exactly when i get a misfire. i don't know how or why they are related.
  6. P0302 and compression test 75psi

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Can i just unbolt the three cats and cut out the insides of them and then bolt them back in? The ECU will read the O2 sensor and notice that something is wrong, will the ECU do anything besides turn on the CEL?
  7. P0302 and compression test 75psi

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I'm interested in the idea of bypassing the cats but I have no idea how to do it. Might be illegal? Would i need to find an unscrupulous mechanic and how much would it cost?? p.s. I have never had the P0008 code
  8. P0302 and compression test 75psi

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Thanks for the replies... I called two engine repair shops and both said it would be smarter to swap out the engine vs spending all that money to fix a valve. Carmax offered $3000 for it which is close to the KBB "trade-in" value, and I divulged the misfire problem to them. I wonder if they...
  9. P0302 and compression test 75psi

    Engine & Drivetrain
    2008 CXL FWD with 135200 miles. A couple weeks ago I started noticing slight hesitations in the engine, mostly when when not moving, at stoplights or in parking lots, right when I would press the gas pedal or brake. Occasionally but rarely when the car was on the road moving. With my cheap car...
  10. Oil in Air Intake Hose

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Oh ok you're saying it doesn't have to be completely clogged to cause the oil buildup?? Is there any good reason to buy a new part? Why not just clean it out with something (air intake cleaner?) and drill out the holes and use the same part? The part seems to be hollow as far as I can tell...
  11. Oil in Air Intake Hose

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I had oil buildup in my air intake hose like many Enclave owners have found, and I bought the "PCV" valve part # V518 (it's not really a PCV valve even though many people call it that). I modified it as described in several threads on here: drill the 2 smaller holes to 5/64th", drill the larger...
  12. Transmission problem, P0700 & U0073

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I took it to the dealer, they test drove it and could not reproduce the problem. They repeated the same trouble codes to me that I already knew, and said it could possibly be a failing TEHCM, so I will continue to monitor the problem and start reading the forums and watching youtube videos...
  13. Transmission problem, P0700 & U0073

    Engine & Drivetrain
    2008 Enclave CXL: My wave plate broke 1.5 years ago at 110500 miles and the repair was covered under warranty. Since then I've driven 14K more miles on it and all has been good until a couple days ago when I noticed it was rev'ing up a little higher than normal before shifting into higher gears...
  14. Changed spark plugs on 09 Enclave

    General Tech
    Mission accomplished, got everything put back together yesterday. It took me about 6 tries to get the intake manifold back in, because of those two long bolts on the back side. The Enclave seems to be running a little better now and hopefully I will see improved fuel mileage. I'd say the whole...
  15. 2008 Buick Enclave CXL AC/Heat Issue

    General Tech
    Ok this is very strange. I replaced the blower motor 2 years ago... it was corroded and destroyed because it was sitting in a pool of water. I drilled a hole in the plastic "bowl" that the blower motor sits in under the glove compartment, to let the water drip out off it. I looked and looked and...
