GM/Dexcool Settlement....info and link

2 posts in this topic

We have a 2003 Chevy Impala that needed a $900 upper and lower gasket fix after 45,000 miles....that one stung.

There is a proposed dexcool settlement for the following reasons (this is from the HSOforum):

Repairs involving intake manifold gasket failures, engine coolant sealing issues, and sludge (a rust-like material) are covered by this proposed settlement. These repairs would likely involve parts like the intake manifold and/or manifold gaskets, throttle body gaskets, radiator cap, heater core, water pump and other parts of the cooling system

You need to supply proof of ownership and proof of repair. You can get up to $400 back - see the HSOforum for details.

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

The info can be found by searching dexcool settlement!

I have a 96 Grand Prix with the same issue. The car overheated and got so hot that after they had the gasket replaced, they tried to start it and the timing chain shattered. The gasket replacement cost $900, and the new timing chain would have been another $700, and that would be to get the car started. The car had 104,000 on it at the time, so I decided to put a new motor in it. It now has 181,000 and the motor runs good. It is just the other things that are starting to go out.

Anyways, it looks like I will get $100 back. Enough for a tank of gas or a few cases of beer.

Thanks for the info on the settlement.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
