So...just removing some fluid and replacing it without bleeding will not yield good results.rbarrios said:ive done the turkey baster method.
remove some of the fluid and refill with new clear fluid....
then you bleed in the proper sequence. until the fluid comes out lighter...
I did it until it came out a bit grey.
The squeek went away..... but....
just today- I heard a faint squeek.... initial bleed 82,000... todays mileage 102,095
. Definitely not. You'll see the color turn from clear to brown fairly quickly. This often happens when a muffler shop does a $80 flush job. Often the vehicle is not lifted and they bleed one caliper only.dzs3fz said:So...just removing some fluid and replacing it without bleeding will not yield good results.
Da*! Now I know what you're talking about. We've had this for the life of the vehicle. If I had known it were a defect, I would have mentioned it under B2B and had it addressed. Even if it's covered by GMPP, it's not worth the $50 deductible. But if we have to go in for something else, I'll mention it.sklunk said:I have been fighting the squeak on-and-off for about 3 months. Today the dealership verified that the brake booster should be replaced for a total of $550
For now the squeak is annoying but the brakes are operating correctly. But I am about due to at least change the fluid so I will probably give that a try before I pay to replace the booster.
There's plenty of GM full size trucks with the LS-series motors that are in the 200k, 300k, and higher range with few issues.john 070 said:I just laugh on my Nissan forum how most cars are in the 300k range, a few in the 400k. One guy said his car doesn't run as smoothly anymore, and he posts his odometer at 495. Another guy said at 313k his motor caught fire, and he has a pic of fireman putting it out, and was waiting to see how much to repair. So many owners solidly in the 300's replacing things for the first time. At 24x, I have replaced none of the stuff that's already been replaced on the Enclave when under 30k. Original brake booster, original clutch reservoir, blah blah blah. Sure do build stuff differently at GM.
That's a good thing, they didn't build the Enclave like that, with routine failure of major components as early as 20k. Maybe workers know why that is, probably not. But someone in the organization does know.BadAV said:There's plenty of GM full size trucks with the LS-series motors that are in the 200k, 300k, and higher range with few issues.
