ok so took my truck in this morning. they changed the transmission dipstick tube and all is well with that. They also checked on the TPS sensor and said they found no problems. Which is good. While i was there dropping the truck off this morning the service tech advised me that suggested services on my truck had never been done. This is coming from the dealer that i have been to 3 times for oil changes since april. Said i needed a induction cleaning service, injection cleaning service, and found 17% water in my brake fluid and needed to be changed, the water was found during a 27 point service that is usually done during an oil change. i had all these services performed and completed. Now the truck is running smooth and brakes are stopping great. my only question is, why is it that when i went last wednesday for an oil change was the water in the brake fluid not noticed then? Also, why after me having them change my oil three times since april have they not asked me to perform the other two services which supposedly supposed to have been done at 30,000 miles.i have 44000 now. Also why wasnt the transmission dipstick recall addressed while i was there? Or any mention of the TPS recall Is this just possibly that the dealership has overlooked this in the past? Or did he just see someone that he thinks he could take advantage of and try to dump all these services at one time. Ok thats my rant for the day. All in all got my truck back after them only having it for about 3 hours and all is well.

Not sure why the problems weren't addressed in your previous visits, I'd imagine they would pull the VIN for recalls every time or at least note in the service record that this had been completed. Might be worth discussing with your service department.

With regards to the TPS recall - as our GM tech (Matt) has indicated, this is a pretty common problem over a lot of years/makes but an easy fix. I wouldn't get crazy worrying about a little idle roughness though, big V8s and cheap gas can give you that problem. Just have it checked if you're in the VINs covered at a regular service interval.

The 'rough idle' I believe the TSB is referencing is what occurs when the part actually fails completely. The engine is put into Reduced Power mode (limps along) to prevent issues, no harm done but it scares the hell outta you and literally shakes the front end. You will also get a 'Service Traction Control / Stabillitrack' warning on the dash. Impossible to miss, and an easy fix. Had mine go bad in early 2012 and haven't had an issue since.

Yeah i definitely wasnt shaking. it was just a little rough sometimes. I actually just vented about my dealer in that last post. i think its time to switch. Last week when i was there waiting for an oil change, i was in the waiting room for about an hour and a half then walked out side to get some fresh out and noticed my truck was inthe back of the lot. Walked in to the service office and nobody had even looked at my truck yet. basically they forgot about it. They did get it into the shop immediately and then gave me the oil change for free. So i guess it wasnt too bad.
