Just something to think about with he 3.6L DIRECT INJECTION engines....
ANY direct injection gas engine is now found to have excessive carbon build up due to the combustion process and will need periodic cleaning of the combustion chamber. The engineers of any direct injection engine have been seeing this start to happen after around 12-20,000 miles.
What sounds great on paper is showing to not be so great in reality. We are the R+D people now.
Thats why alot of the warranty items are like a transmission or engine cant be opened up in some cases. The engineers want to see what happened.

Thank goodness for this site and forum.
I have a 2010 V6 and I'm also having problems with the CEL and mis-fires.
It started last year at approx. 35000 miles. Going down Rt 95 at 60+ miles an hour the engine lost power and was hesitating. Pull over turn the engine off then restart and everything is fine.
Okay, it's a computer, maybe just a glitch I thought.
Then it happens again maybe 2 months later with the wife driving down the PA Turnpike.
I take it to my local mechanic and he tells me the codes say a misfire, bad coil pack on the #1 cylinder. Off to the dealer we go, it now has 37,865 miles. The dealer reprograms the ECM, gives it a road test and sends me on my way.
Last Thursday, now with 41,000 miles it happens again. At least we were on a local road and not a highway. Back to the dealer. He calls and says the codes are saying it the # 2 cylinder this time.
He's keeping it over the weekend and giving it the clean out/ flush as previously discussed here.

My question now is should I get a Claim Number process started with GM? It looks like I might be another "lucky" CEL/misfire participant.
Brandon?

BTW, I have also experienced cold weather starts, but not on a regular basis. Just every once in a while.
My wife and I love driving this car, hell after 3 years I'm still driving it like I stole it. It would be a shame to now realize I made a bad decision in buying it because it's not going to last. The last Camaro I bought lasted me almost 15 years, I was hoping this one would at least give me half of that.

Gm said the misfire was due to the oil from the cold air filter had gummed up the mass airflow sensor and threw 8 code for miss fire running to rich/lean and that's what caused the misfire so I've read some of your posts could be the same issues for you guys

Car never did get fixed. Dealership refused to service car and the intake manifold was inspected and there is no issues. I also had the maf sensor cleaned.

Maybe this combination I have just wont work. Would installing hiflow csts fix anything?

I'm also still convinced its an air to fuel ratio thing that a tune could easily fix.

Happened again today on the highway in yraffic, worst place for it to happen. Car went into limp mode and felt like it was shaking to pieces.

This was from hitting the gas pedal to pass a car doing 30 under speed limit. When I got to work I noticed I now have a permanent cel. When I turned the car off then on again in parkinglot, limp mode was gone but cel is still on??????

This is such a nasty bug, not sure what to do anymore. Im gonna get on trifecta and code read the cel.

The check engine light is also known as malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). It shows when having a glitch in the electronic control module of vehicles. Commonly, the check engine light is positioned within the instrument console. In some older vehicles, the check engine light was referred to as "engine" or "trouble", which demonstrated small problems including overheating or flat oil pressure inside the motor.
