Every dealer has the option to work on what they want I guess.

You may have to just take it to a shop that does that kind of work and let them see what they can do if all else fails.
I think I got someone in Atlanta. Will not charge me a dime and even pay my gas if they can't find and fix it. Just don't know what the cost would be. Didn't want to ask.

They do minor stuff but nothing powertrain related. This is the reason I have to go 3 hours to Vengeance to have any work done.

Timing, command air fuel, O2 sensor, knock sensor, long term and short term fuel trims, you name it. Did your Maggie not come with something similar? My Predator will also read and clear CEL codes.

Do you have gauges in your car?
Ours comes with SCT. I can do all that same stuff, but I left it in Atlanta with Vengeance so Mike could try and put my tune on it. They use EFI Live.

No gauges yet. But I will get some.

Not to be funny but do think this is the reason the guy sold it? Is there a way to check the body for cracks? Just throwing ideas out.


I hope not. I doubt it, it didn't have any signs of being dropped or anything. Plus, Tim would have known. Would suck like hell though. I believe I'd be shit out of luck. (no acronym for requred dramatic effect, lol)

Chris@HPS talked to me. He's the shop that gave me the offer. If I can't find it, I may let them try.

You can use a noid light to check #8injector( I think I read # 8 somewhere you thought was misfire). Put it on the injector and let the car idle and see what the light will do when it misfires. Honestly, I am not sure why the issue wasn't found while scanning the car. There is enough pids and sensors in the scanner to find almost anything wrong with the car. You should of never had to pay especially, if the problem did not get fixed!

Just FYI, GM does make sure that if a dealer is not trained on a certain vehicle then they do not have to perform warranty work or otherwise on it.
With the factory supercharged cars they have all of the documentation from GM on it, as well as support from the GM Tech line. Which does make it easier (for the ZR1 and CTS-V). While the Magnuson & the factory superchargers share the same rotors, they are different installations.
Since they are typically not skilled diagnosticians I doubt they (a GM tech) would be able trouble shoot a problem that is not on the surface & easy to pinpoint.

While I do agree with you, and Mike said in an e-mail he could fix it with the tune ..... all we agreed was that he'd tune it. I assumed it would take care of it just like Mike did. We were wrong. Not their fault that I have a problem outside of tuning. It really really sucks. But Mike just said he could fix it. We never agreed he would. Just that I'd get the tune and HOPE it would. If I could go back and do it differently, I would. I'd have used that 600.00 to find the problem. But there was no way to know. So I am not justified, imo to jump on Vengeance. I thought about it. I was on the fence. But I'm not a mechanic or tuner. So all I could do is try one. If that wasn't it, then continue on. I gambled wrong. So I'll have to try this. If I can't fix it, I'll bring it to you. I'm just tired of throwing money at it and not getting it fixed. I know you gave me the gaurantee, but if I can fix it without spending too much, I'd prefer that.

I got no faith in ANY GM dealer based on the way the two I've dealt with down here are. In fairness, Terri Tompson Chevrolet here is a much better service department than Bay Chevrolet, but still can't align 21 inch wheels. And won't work on anything not stock.

And Terri Tompson is a good dealership. They just have a policy. And they stick to it. The known oil pan gasket leak cropped up just before my blower install. I only found out about it because when I got it tuned, the tuner saw it and showed me where it was leaking. It was obviously there before the blower becasue I hadn't run the car yet. Terri Tompson said no. I was up front about the supercharger and they told me that their policy is to stick to the letter of GMs rules. I can't fault them for that. I'll just have to find someone else.

Ray2SS on this forum took his car to a local dealer in our area that was "supposedly" skilled at hot rodding up the Camaro. They had said they did a few twin turbos and what not. They messed his car up good and he ended up having to get it to Janetty to get straightened out.

Dealers are not performance shops.

I seafoamed the fuel this morning. So Now I'm gonna make a list. And do them in order of what makes sense.

Of everything I have so far, I think a few things can be done right away. And then take it to a shop for a smoke test. If the blower has to be pulled, I'll be the one pulling it. Saves on cost.

There are a few dealerships out there that do have peformance shops... Like Grabinak on the east side & Sunset Chevy on the west side.

I wouldnt discredit ALL dealers, but they are limited to a few nationwide.

Dicredit, no. Lose faith in, yes.

What I mean is I used to figure that all dealerships were top notch until they showed me, or I heard otherwise.

But now they are all suspect until they show me or I hear otherwise.

No big deal. I"m sure that most of them can fix a Cobalt or Silverado just fine. But out of the box isn't in their forte'.

I agree. I was terrified to leave my car for a oil change, tire rotation & alignment... thankfully it made it back in one piece (and still running).

Actually, I was scared to leave my bone stock 97 burban... lol

id really like a better pic of your plugs too there is one that looks fishy to me so if you wouldnt mind.....the only reason id suggest dealer is the software they have can really get deep into it and i dunno if its accessible by us
