Yea unless the dealer covers it under warranty stay away from dealers they're crooks they'll charge you 1000 dollars to fix, an at most, 250 dollar problem but it might just be out of sync and need to be cleared so it can't relearn itself.

$54.10 for misc charges and taxes.

Hopefully I do not have it go out in a week.
Wooooooow rape.

At 1 PM he was asking for alternatives from the dealer. At 3 PM he was leaving the dealer $700 poorer.

Why post?

And yes you could've gotten a ported TB for $350. It would've been better than what they did.

And how is a TB not part of the powertrain?

Wow, I thought he didn't had the job done at the dealer.

That's a shame man. You should do a lot of research and talk to the people on here before you let a dealer "Fix" your car. If it aint covered under warranty than chances are they are going to rape you.

Also, they indicated that this is not covered under the power train warranty. Can anyone confirm?

Driving: 2010 LT2 RS. Also have had timing chain issues already. Beginning to think I got a "lemon."

Thanks for the help.

I had this happen on my 2009 Chevrolet pickup. I removed and cleaned the throttle body with carb cleaner and cleaned the map sensor.it ran great after. it threw similar codes and barely ran to get home.it only had about 34k on it.

We assume your Camaro is not over eight years. Do you have more than 80,000 miles?

Fuel injectors do not fall under emission controls. My Camaro only has 8,000 miles. I dont have have the 2011 anymore but when I had it I was under 80,000

If fuel and air and spark don't cause an internal combustion engine to run then I have no clue what are major components.
Sorry but the injectors are not part of emissions, it has nothing to do,with you being a braniac

Thanks for all the insight everyone.

Unfortunately, my Camaro is my only vehicle and my daily driver so I had to use the dealer for the repair to get it back as soon as possible. (Also, just fyi - the dealer that I used wasn't my normal dealer. It was just a dealership that I was barely able to "limp" into) But, I have it back and is running good for now.

Thanks again,

As to the question about why the throttle body isn't covered by the person warranty, I just looked at one of the GM parts websites, and it looks like the TB is classified as part of the fuel system, which someone already said is not covered. I can kind of see the logic of that, but it is a bit of a reach.

Not to kick you while you're down OP, but on-line the OE part is on sale for around $150. :( The price you paid for the TB looks like it's about equal to the MSRP, so that's not too terrible, but what's this "harness" thing from your invoice? Next to the outrageous labor charge, that's the suspicious thing which sucks out to me. I'd be checking that part number.

Still, my '10 1LT is also my only car, so I understand the "pay any price because I won't have a car" impulse.
