Uplander 6-cyl

  • 138,000 miles
My 2007 Chevy Uplander has become unsafe. Multiple mechanics have given different guesses as to what the problem may be. When driving, if I stop at a stop sign or red light, or even during stop-go traffic, the van will suddenly jerk when I go to accelerate. Sometimes the jerk is incredibly forceful as if I have been hit from behind. Two mechanics have recommended a complete transmission replacement but say that they have had similar complaints from other owners of the same make/model vehicle. Because the van does this, it is hard to accelerate immediately from a stopping point. This causes unsafe driving/traffic conditions as I can not be certain my van will immediately accelerate when needed.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander. While the contact's partner was driving 55 mph, the contact heard a pinging noise and the check engine indicator illuminated. The driver pulled off the freeway and onto a side street where the vehicle stalled. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic who stated that the engine was faulty, but did not provide any further information. The vehicle was then towed to the contact's home where it was inspected by an independent mechanic. The mechanic wrote in his report that fine granules in the coolant reservoir indicated that temporary block seal had been utilized, which indicated previous failures with the engine. The contact did not know the specific cause of the failure. The contact stated that the engine needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 98,000.

Since winter of 2012, I have replaced 3 thermostats, 2 heater coils, flushed radiator numerous times and still have no heat. Mechanic is beside himself for an answer. The radiator gets plugged up with what looks like mud, which results in another radiator flush. He says radiator is ok because it's not overheating. What am I to do? I love my van but want heat. Please help sincerely
