  1. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    Filters oriented in that fashion have anti drain back valves, designed to open based on a specific oil pressure.
  2. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Did you get to see the service records prior to purchase? Some of these engines are prone to sludge. Without pulling the timing cover, the vehicle may appear to be mint, when in fact it is on death row. A build up of sludge starves the bearings and wham/bam the engine is toast. Depending...
  3. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    The issue with Magnuson-Moss is that initially the dealer/automaker does not initially have to prove anything. They only need deny the warranty coverage. The onus moves to the owner who most likely needs to incur legal expenses they may or may not ever recover. There are very few...
  4. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    You have never changed the oil on one of the billion small/big block Chevy engines where the filter is hung straight down?
  5. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    I agree. Doesn't look to be worth the effort, and most likely voids your warranty in the event of any sort of engine failure.
  6. Shift to Park message

    General Tech
    Something doesn't add up. Have you checked to see how much CarMax or Carvana will give you for the vehicle?
  7. NEVER AGAIN BIG BIG MISTAKE

    GMC Acadia
    Have you checked into your state's lemon laws?
  8. Fuel economy

    Engine & Drivetrain
    A chip will be a waste of money. The first gen vehicles simply do not get great mileage. Agree with rbarrios, a good tune up and monitor your driving style. Also keep tires properly inflated, balanced and check the alignment. I have owned an '11 and now have an '18. The second gen gets far...
  9. Driving with no key.

    GMC Acadia
    I'm with you that I do not see a lot of use for remote start. I have had multiple vehicles with it and pretty much use it once to make sure it works then never use it again. I have golfing buddies that use it all the time but have one that had an Acadia for two years and never knew he even had...
  10. Driving with no key.

    GMC Acadia
    Not standard on Denali trim?
  11. P0340, Sensor bad; wiring okay. How do I...

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Most likely comes straight out but has some sort of clip securing it in place. Should be visible on the replacement sensor.
  12. Driving with no key.

    GMC Acadia
    Could have just used the remote start button?
  13. 2010 Acadia AWD problems

    General Tech
    I'm betting it was an 'as is' sale and the buyer knew there were issues.
  14. Leveling

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    And what happens if you level it without weight, then load it to the max?
  15. Cluster swap

    Interior and Electrical
    Or most likely anything associated with the cluster.
  16. 2017 Acadia - leg air vent issue

    GMC Acadia
    I have an '18 and have never noticed such behavior. But then I never muck with the controls. I always use auto mode and let the hvac system decide where to blow the air.
  17. brand new 2018 Acadia Denali - AC howling

    Problems, Recalls, TSBs, FAQs & Links
    But it only had to cool three square feet.... :)
  18. Lift Kit for Acadia

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    I suggested a Tahoe for those feeling the need for a lifted Acadia. Like me, most owners do not have the need for a lifted Acadia. If I did I would have bought a Tahoe. On the other hand, my son prefers a lifted vehicle so he bought a Tahoe.
  19. Lift Kit for Acadia

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    Tahoe just as easy to drive as an Acadia. Very comfortable seats, great on road trips. My son's fits in his garage just fine.
  20. Lift Kit for Acadia

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    or men subservient to their wives and make all the mods their wife demands, or folks like me that find the Acadia a very nice vehicle for getting from point A to point B but would rather spend mod dollars on their toys. In addition to my Acadia, I also own an '84 Corvette and a nicely modded...
