Here in the Midwest,Get ready .. soon as single digit or lower temps start up this winter. . .. .
There'll be more new posters with blown 2.4L main seals.
Get a vented Delco FC219 oil filler cap and keep it cleaned in very cold weather.
Last night it is was -5 degrees F,
Today has a high of 10 degrees F
Sadly, folks that drive to work, or drive their little kids to school, In their GM LEA 2.4 liter, 4 cylinder gdi engined Terrains and Equinox's
Folks that drive in this cold weather,
(and folks that do not have a vented cap)
Those good folks ^^ with beautiful, expensive, Terrain's and Equinox's
ARE AT risk of having .....
...... Crankshaft REAR MAIN SEAL FAILURE .....
...... just because they drove their GMC Terrain or Chevy Equinox in cold weather...!!!!
...... those good folks might be dangerously stranded on the side of a road.... they might be late for work, or late for school,
those good folks with be scr*wed with a more then $2000 bill to fix their GM SUV,
because GM does not warrentee their known failure ==> crankshaft Rear main seal failures due to high crankcase pressure and a frozen PCV system.
I wonder what kind of severity GM engineers gave crankshaft rear main seal failure on their DESIGN FMEA's?......
and what was their corrective action?
Shame on you GM.
