Misc Work5615106/01/2012 Bought GMTu Gm turbo upgrade form Crate engine depot $500.00 had it installed by John Alpert at Drivers villag Burdick Chevy in Cicero. Works great except for the fact that the brakes are back to the way they where before vaccum assist was added. Possibly wrong reflash. Car seems to be running a little hotter thought at one point is spit out a couple quarts of fluid but it must have been the car before me in the same parking spot since there was absolutley no sign of it at all in the engine compartment. drew a blue line on overflow when cool in 90 degree heat to keep watching. Also from a dead stop car will pull 22 psi then drop to zero nose over then pull again? will have dealer look at this according to dan at crate engine depot this may be either the lower sensor hitting or possibly the turbo leaking? Update appears car was going on reve limiter causing it to shut off. then turn back on
Misc Work5630006/01/2012Brought car in to Dave coolie mgr at drivers reflash computer to try and make vacuum brake assist pump work with new turbo upgrade and grind nub on tmap and to order cac pipe

Temperature (coolant) data004/15/201334 degree position got as high as 210 stayed around 199-205
Temperature (coolant) data004/15/2013Drove home 70 degrees outside car ran great. Temp went to 205 max then down to 199 then back to 205 back and forth then down to 194 !@ one point.tried the loaner whit turbo 1.4 cruze that sue has from sharon chevy 70 degrees out car ran 215-221 constantly
Temperature (coolant) data004/17/2013Took air cleaner lid off to see if it made a change in coolant temp and it seemed to Drove to work 32 degrees out. car went to 205 stayed there for a few minutes dropped to 203 went back to 205 stayed steady turned heat on went to 207 then 210 quickly then seemed to come back I put the heat back to to cool and it never went over 205 seems more consistent. maybe car is reading inlet air temp and adjusting coolant temp accordingly ?
Temperature (coolant) data004/18/2013Same thing yesterday afternoon driving home as am.
Oil Change5950004/22/2013 Second oil change done since I bought the Car. Oil was changed just before I bought it in NJ at Pellegrino chevy Then I changed it myself 5000 miles later then just changed today for free at drivers village Chevy even though the oil monitor light still said 29 percent left till oil change Per Dave Coolie Chevy service manager and Matt Burdick service writer Mobil 1 5w30 oil change was done for free.
Inspection5950004/22/2013 Inspection done passed with flying colors at Drivers village Chevy
Rotate Tires5950004/22/2013Done at Drivers Village Chevy Free under the certified preowned program front to back
Temperature (coolant) data5950004/22/2013Brought in to drivers village while it was being inspected etc. I had them check why the temperature seems to be fluctuating they said the tech checked it and the car never got over 205 drove it home it hit 212 still not bad let it sit in the drive way running for 20 minutes it stayed very stable at 210 degrees. with the fan running and it was about 60 degrees out
Temperature (coolant) data5950004/22/2013Checked this morning noticed that before they did the oil change yesterday the oil was up about a half inch higher than it should be on the stick. it is right at the top after they did the oil change yesterday maybe I put too much in when i did the oil change of 5 quarts? Also noticed that the coolant level was up about 2-3 inches.I am assuming the tech added coolant. I also noticed that at idle at about 130 degrees this morning that it appears that air bubbles are coming from the radiator into the the rate of 1 bubble every 5-10 seconds. they may not be air bubbles but sure looked like they where. Hoping that the tech maybe took off the rad cap and it was just air coming out . that he let enter and hopefully it is not a head gasket letting compression enter the coolant chamber?
Oil Change5950004/22/2013Had oil changed under the certified free program mobil 1 5w30 at Drivers village chevy
Temperature (coolant) data004/25/2013 started car this morning and immediatley noticed air or water bubbles in coolant overflow drove to work idling at 205 no signs of bubbles at all. need to pull hose when cold put into jar with water and then see if air or coolant comes out of course there will be some air present in hose
Temperature (coolant) data5990004/26/2013 Rented Block Tester from autozone Poured Blue dye into tester pulled about a pint or so of antifreeze out and pulled the air filter housing off took tork screws out but supposedly I could have just pulled the filter housing up. Checked for exhaust leaks into coolant nothing found dye stayed blue would have turned yellow if something was wrong I even revved the engine to test and nothing. Then waited and Checked the next day when it was cold, bubbles came out into the sealed overflow tank but no sign of gases ! :} Tried to do a pressure test on the coolant system unfortunatley the adapters that I rented from auto zone did not screw on far enough to try.
Temperature (coolant) data5991004/28/2013 Drove around in 70 degree weather Saturday and Sunday, Car never got over 205 mainly near 199!

Temperature (coolant) data6150007/24/2013 Note as of 7/24/13 fans seem to be working fine since I pulled the two main wires out of the supply harness connector and rebent them and moved them up to where they need to be in the connector Only problem I notice is that I am leaking about 2 oz of coolant fluid a day which appears to be from the pet cock.

Misc Work6140007/30/2013Brought in to Reymore Chevy to have upper charge pipe replaced that was leaking and should be what has been causing the check engine light to come on according to a couple of tuners.

No oil foumd in pipes just intake.then tac told doug to cut out ced wire harness which he did not do and basically all he was a le to do is put dialectric grease on wiring to lower tmap
Oil Change6211108/23/2013Mobil 1 5w30
Misc Work6230008/26/2013 Here is email info from Tom at Crate engine Depot who emailed the engineer who designed the gmtu More_Power_More _torque "Hello Mike, This is the reply from my GM engineer who also sent this along to your mech: “Tom, I called and talked to Doug. He said the car was sent back to Mike with dielectric grease in all the connections on your jumpers. I don't think that is the issue. I told him about the PCV check valve in the intake manifold, p/n 12589440, that can cause the excessive oil in the intake and a boost pressure loss. This is a check valve, and can cause oil consumption and oil in the intake system when the one way check valve in the intake manifolds fails to check when the engine is boosting. This causes high crankcase pressure due to boost leaking into the crankcase and high blow-by and it will overcome the PCV system oil separation baffles and push oil into the intake manifold. Please pass this along to Mike Connley.” Tom"
Check Engine Light Code Issues 6240009/17/2013Drop off car at reymores to have PCV valve changed also they are changing the intake manifold because it has to come off thid was sepyember 3 rd?

Check Engine Light Code Issues 6350010/17/2013No problems since pcv valve and imtake manifold changed at reymores noticing that oil level on dipstick has gone up may be gas maybe coolant oil appears to be fine but the higher the oil level goes the more oil ends up on upper tmap sensor took out 8 oz of oil dipstick shows 3/4 full and was an 1/8" over full approximately tmap went from noticeable amount of oil on tmap to almost none at all
