cableandchain: lets build a 1000 fast or 100 right what are they gonna do lol
estrelladelnorte1308: hummm... a channel that is called "carquestions" and the don't know WHEN or WHAT causes a manufacturer to issue a "recall"
David Eagle: If you think this is a GM only issue then you haven't been working around vehicles very long.
Dion Reed: I am never buying a chevy 4x4 again. I don't care if they give them out for free. Live and learn.
Stephanie Schaefer: i have a 4.2 vortex straight 6 I have 7 broken exhaust manifold bolt. it is not just v8
Graham Reddoch: I own a 2005 motorhome with a GM engine, with 50,000 miles on it since new. Last year it cost me about $2,000.00 USD to have the exhaust manifold gaskets replaced. It took the shop in San Antonio about 4 days, because they had to drill, use EZ Outs, and re-thread 7 bolts from the cylinder head. The mechanic cursed it the whole time, but my coach is much quieter now. It would have been nice for GM to acknowledge & fix this defect.
David McDonnell: Your asking the NHTSA to step in a recall a non safety related issue on a $3-5 part? Why should any auto manufacturer be responsible for your inability to work on your own vehicle. These are machines people they are destine to fail.
Justin AfterBurn: Could a leak from the broken bolts cause a ticking like noise sort of like valve train noise?
james dean: The last bolt is a plain in the ass i gave up for today lol. I got all the new bolts in besides the last one/ Gonna go buy a gear wrench just to do that. I got lucky though and was able to use vise grips to get the stud out
Slac adjuster: Wait, wait, wait. This dude is a mechanic, and he calls this vehicle, a "car". At .24, he calls it the sister "car" to Tahoe,s etc. Dude it, just like a Tahoe, is a TRUCK, not a car. LOL, if ya don't even know that, ya sure as hell wouldn't be working on my vehicles.
mike chainz: Although I agree that there is a problem with broken bolts on Chevy engines I am also a mechanic and I must tell you I've done just as many Fords and almost as many Dodge trucks they are a bolt that lives in one of the hottest place on the motor hot and cold course it rusts out and breaks that little bolt is touching 1200 degrees on one end and ambient temperature on the other of minus degrees and it's made of a hardened steel touches aluminum and passes through cast iron electrolysis to the max ...once again Chevy does have an issue with the exhaust bolts so does Ford with exhaust studs and rusting manifolds and broken spark plugs and horrible timing chain systems Dodge has inferior electronic components leak injectors exhaust manifold problems transmission problems their automobiles .....things we use and abuse I don't understand why everybody thinks that they should be absolutely perfect forever I have never seen them broke on any of the three for mentioned vehicles with less than 80,000 miles so to me that clearly indicates it is a long-term wear issue not a manufacturer recall safety issue! !!!!
anton alexeev: my 2007 New body Silverado with 89k miles and 2000 Silverado with 136k miles had rear most bolts of both sides of engine broken off flush with the cylinder head. I did not counted the time ( may be 5 hours and I was very slow to take stuff apart to get it out of the way) I got it fixed , I used the washer to weld on the remainder of the bolt and the welded the nut , came off easy. I watched videos of youtube how to do it.Replaced with new bolts from GM that they now use on there trucks. They have larger head.EPA should not be happy with GM because of that.I want to get paid for my time from GM
Bryan Kephart: Way rather have this problem than timing chains in a 3V trition, or spark plug broken in the head

Guillaume Lamadeleine: I own a 2010 sierra with the 4.8L its got 71,104km on it, the bolt closest to the firewall on the drivers side, they said it be 8 hours in labor, and they don't want to cover it on the warranty, the truck hasn't passed the 100k warranty and I also have the extended warranty and still they give me a hard time, I am due for my E-test and they wont do a damn thing about it, they told me my check engine light is on cause of the evap for fuel, read the codes and its not that, total rip off, I'm about to sell it and go back with my old 84 f-150 where I had no warranty but I could do everything my damn self and not have sensors on each part of truck !!!!!
