Default LBZ went to the Shop today.. p003a..

I had to drop my beloved truck off at the dealership this morning. I got done with a well out in Wheeler,TX the other day, and had a CEL. So I pulled over, checked it, p003a ... aww crap whats that.. Called Chad and Danny, and they told me its a vane position not learned.. great.. I have ZERO boost up to about 2200 rpm, then boost jumps up to about 18 or 20 psi all at once, till about 2400 rpm..

Of course, Im 350 miles from home pulling a freakin 36' camper.. So I limp to the first GM house I find.. Elk City, OK.. The tech plugs tech2 in, and the vanes are stuck at 68%.. and he can't adjust them, they are stuck.. terrific.. 4 days to get the Vane Position Sensor and Solenoid..

Soooo, I limped it home, and called my local (not mod friendly) dealership.. He says that he might not warranty it, because I have an exhaust and gauges.. he dont know about the blocker and pcv re-route.. So last night I had to put it all back to stock except gauges and exhaust.. and the local GM house said its under warranty now.. it needed a solenoid, should be done tomorrow.


I hate driving my wifes gasser.. But Im glad this is gettin fixed..

Well I guess my truck has decided to do the same thing as KC's, Sunday evening I had to come in to work and I noticed I had no boost going down the highway, where I usually run about 6 or 7 psi. And it only builds about 20 psi at full throttle. So I guess it will be going to the dealership next week

Well, its an easy fix Kyle, but the Stealership has to order the parts from either California or Michigan or somethin.. It takes 4-8 business days to get the parts in, so plan on your truck limpin around for about a week. It will most likely only be the Vane Position Sensor, right on top of the turbo.. its got that wire that runs to the driver side of the engine bay.. Sometimes, along with the sensor, they will replace the solenoid too.. Mine didnt need it though.
