  1. Bluetooth Stopped Working Completely

    Audio, Video & Nav
    Welcome to the forum. Hope you don't have an '06 Acadia. The vehicle didn't exist until the '07 model year. ;) Bluetooth wasn't available from the factory until later than that. It's unlikely Bluetooth has anything to do with a battery problem. You say it "often" doesn't start. That would...
  2. 2013 Denali A/C issues

    General Tech
    Welcome to the forum. You'll find a link to download the factory service manual in reply #7 of this thread: Link to owners manual. The year isn't the same, but the information will be similar. There weren't many changes in the Lambda-platform Acadia through the model years. You could also try an...
  3. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    The valve is there to prevent oil from returning to the sump and to keep the filter full once the engine is shut off. It helps prevent 'dry start' when the oil pump is trying to fill the oiling system. There's still going to be a mess when the filter is changed.
  4. Help with 2015 GMC Acadia

    General Tech
    Yes it could. You'll need to have someone with a good scan tool and diagnostic skills to look into that for you. Just throwing parts at it won't help.
  5. Help with 2015 GMC Acadia

    General Tech
    Welcome to the forum. Clear the code and see how quickly it returns. Consider adding some catalytic converter cleaner next time you get fuel, or just before you leave for home. Be sure to follow instructions. It might help.
  6. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I'm not talking just about dealers. You get what you pay for, so cheap out if you want. If the OP finds out a new engine will fix the problem and decides to replace it, there's a whole other set of things to consider in order to protect the investment. It will be explained to the OP at the time...

  9. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    The people and their quals always come first - rep isn't a bad thing to review, either. After that, it's how well-equipped they are to do the work - today it's not just wrenches and screw drivers. Lastly, consideration is given to what kind of support they have, or how well they'll support you...
  10. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    I don't get my vehicles repaired at one-man butcher shops or by someone working under a sycamore tree. Places I've dealt with have many of the costs of doing business borne by dealerships. There might be some savings in parts if aftermarket items are selected.
  11. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Good luck with what you decide to do. Around here, labor costs are about the same at dealers and independent shops. It doesn't pay to shop for 'cheap' labor rates, unless there's a tried and trusted establishment which will work with you.
  12. Backup camera

    Audio, Video & Nav
    Welcome to the forum. A bit more information is needed if you want any help with the problem.
  13. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Go to Kelly Blue Book, or NADA website and plug in all the information for a running vehicle in whatever condition describes your Acadia. Subtract the cost of an engine replacement from the figure you get. Use numbers for both reman and used engine replacement. You'll come up with some...
  14. Gmc 2010 Acadia problem installing hitch

    Towing & Hauling
    Welcome to the forum. Call Curt and ask their tech department what you should do. Maybe they packaged the wrong bolts and will send you the correct ones. Either that, or figure out what size/grade bolts you need and purchase them from a hardware store.
  15. Possible power steering issue

    Brakes, Suspension, Wheels & Tires
    Could have damaged a wheel speed sensor. The magnetic reluctor ring is part the hub assembly and hidden from view until you take off the hub to inspect it.
  16. Possible power steering issue

    Brakes, Suspension, Wheels & Tires
    Not with any precision. A 4-wheel alignment runs ~$80-$100. Front only costs about half of that.
  17. Engine gave up. Help

    Engine & Drivetrain
    Welcome to the forum. You never said what model year Acadia you purchased. If it's still within the 5 yr./100K mi. warranty period, GMC should help you. There's liitle chance of any help from them if the vehicle is out of warranty.
  18. 2017 Acadia Transmission Cooler

    Towing & Hauling
    Check it when the trans reaches operating temperature, in Park, with the engine running. That way the torque converter is full and the fluid has reached its 'max' expansion. Park or Neutral doesn't matter so much. In Neutral, you must have faith in the parking brake or wheel chocks.
  19. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    I've changed so many on different makes/models that access hasn't mattered that much. The real challenge was how to keep things clean - including myself - while changing one.
  20. Oil Filter Relocation

    DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    The worst one can be the filter installed at the factory.
