Huntingdog....Big grins would be much more noticeable, if you would have recreated them to bright blue!

Sounds like a hydro-lock/ no start issue. Must be a serious problem with head or block warpage.

Well I have read on other forums that they are replacing the engines at the Flint assembly plant. If I owned a highly optioned truck, I would say give me a loaner for a month and replace my engine and give it back.

Howdy!

Hell I have a 2018 Chevrolet 3500 LTZ Duramax 6.6 and from day one the engine bock heater was recalled. Been replaced once. Shortly after that it was recalled again. Every time I ask the dealership they state there’s no replacement available. I had a long conversation with GM costumer service and they only stated the same thing “NO FIX AT THIS TIME”. My only response was “THATS NO WHAT I PAID FOR”. Still waiting! If they want to buy this thing back they can have it!

Chief I'm in the same boat, but I did get a letter from GM saying that parts are now available. Going in next week. I have no desire to be anywhere that I need that block heater, but I want what I paid for.
