  1. Sluggish Start

    General Tech
    Take the battery terminals off and make sure they're good and clean, then reconnect them making sure they're good and tight. Actually take them off and clean the battery terminal and clamps, don't just look at them and give them a wiggle from the top and assuming they're good. After that have...
  2. Cold Start - Short Lasting Noise

    Engine & Drivetrain
    It runs perfectly fine otherwise and only makes the noise when cranking? If so I'd say that test on the starter was a false pass and replace it. Would like to hear it on the video though, but if it's a crank only noise there isn't a lot that can be causing it other than the starter. I suppose...
  3. 2013 Enclave, radio does not turn off when the driver's door is opened

    Buick Enclave
    Do the interior lights come on when you open the driver's door?
  4. Swapping wheels

    Buick Enclave
    Tire pressure monitors will have to be reset as well. I have snow tires mounted on a 2nd set of rims so I bought the $10 GM re-learn tool on Amazon since I'ms swapping twice a year. There is an entirely too complicated procedure you can do that involves deflating and inflating the tires in a...
  5. Coil Pack Bolt Stripped??

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I'd try and get some pressure pulled/torquing against the coil pack and see if that lets you back the bolt out. For 5 out of 6 to fail my guess is you way over torqued them reinstalling them the first time.
  6. To buy or not to buy

    Buying, Leasing & Custom Ordering
    The design problem with the timing chain was resolved by 2014. You'll still see one fail from time to time but any vehicle that hasn't had proper oil changes done will have timing chain failures. The real high percentages that were occurring even in well maintained vehicles were in early models...

    +1. If you don't get someone to moderate it the upgrades will mostly be for the spam bots that are now the most active posters on here. You have threads where it's just spam bots talking to each other and nothing is done about it.
  8. Enclave Question for Owners

    New Member Section
    I have a good friend that runs a tire shop and he sees this all the time. The problem is too many shops use soap and water as their lube for installing tires and that water has no where to go once it's inside the rim and really speeds up the corrosion process. He uses a special goop made...
  9. engine light came on yesterday -- codes P0089, P0300, P0301

    Engine & Drivetrain
    That changing just the coil fixed it really makes me wonder how the OBD system flagged the fuel pressure regulator (code p0089). Glad it worked out and wasn't a major issue though. Also, you had a pending code for a different cylinder (p0305) but it doesn't sound like the mechanic touched that coil.
  10. engine light came on yesterday -- codes P0089, P0300, P0301

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Hard to know just from the codes. First troubleshooting step will be hooking up a fuel pressure gauge and seeing how the fuel pressure looks. Could be an issue with the pump, the fuel pressure regulator or even an injector sticking open.
  11. 2016 Enclave-Face getting sunburnt-Windshield, chrome reflects?

    Buick Enclave
    This is really odd because generally the windshield of any car will block 100% of UVB rays (the ones that cause sunburn) because of the plastic layers from the laminate block it. Side windows don't block as much but I can't imagine you're getting that much sun on your face from the side windows...
  12. 2016 Enclave engine "groaning" at 1,000 rpm-argghh

    Buick Enclave
    Is it only when it’s in gear? If you leave it in park and feather the throttle to keep it right around 1000 rpm will it make the noise? If it will do it in neutral or park it eliminates the trans and torque converter.
  13. brake switch tap

    Buick Enclave
    Not sure, but you'd probably have more luck searching over on the Acadia forum. Way more active and much higher percentage of DIYers over there compared to this Buick forum and the 1st gen cars are 99% the same since they share a platform. I specifically searched out an Enclave with the tow...
  14. Enclave is so cheap to insure

    Buick Enclave
    This forum is 90% bots now.
  15. Out of work in Indianapolis

    Sorry to hear. Best of luck on the job search.
  16. 2013 Buick Enclave

    New Member Section
    The lens is not a replaceable part as the lights are a sealed unit, so if you can't clear it up to your satisfaction using one of those headlight restoration kits you'd have to replace the entire unit (make sure you're sitting down before you look up the price). The key with those kits is once...
  17. Follow-up on My 2009 Buick Enclave

    Buick Enclave
    So you bought a 10 year old used car with no warranty and had problems so now no one should buy an Enclave? Ok, thanks for stopping by.
  18. Transmission Fluid Smell

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Just going up hills should not be causing the transmission to overheat. I've honestly never seen a stock modern vehicle overheat it's transmission when it wasn't towing something. Overheating usually happens when the transmission has to hunt between gears constantly while towing, preventing the...
  19. wow! check out this new Enclave I saw on Instagram

    Buick Enclave
    Interesting is one word. Really ugly is two words. I'll stick with the latter.
  20. /// Post the current year, model, and mileage of your Enclave ///

    Buick Enclave
    Just got the OnStar email and saw this thread so figured I'd post an update. 2013 AWD, 64,886 miles now, bought it about 2.5 years ago with 35k as a CPO. Had a piece of weather stripping replaced under the CPO warranty. Did front brakes (pads and rotors) the first year, rear shocks about a year...
