I have an appointment in the morning at a dealer to have a actuator for the recirculate installed. I am now thinking that I might do it myself any advice?

Have you already got a cost quote?!!? You might want to wait and read posts about that problem. Due to the HIGH cost of having it done, and difficulty of doing it yourself, some have just decided to leave it alone.

Yes I thought of the same thing, but I also have an oil pressure gauge problem. My oil pressure gauge the needle is just pointing straight down, I still have oil pressure but I would like to get it fixed. The dealer said that the actuator would be between four and six hundred.

The gauge is most likely a stepper motor gone bad if you fix that one you should do them all in the dash

Yes I have planned on doing that. The dealer will give me a price and I will go from there. If it is too much I think I can do those myself.

Great suggestion, Marc . . . but it looks like MDean is very fortunate to be living in Mesa, Arizona.

He can probably stand on a chair and see Mike's (The Ultimate SSR Expert) Garage.

Mike...... give me a call tomorrow before you spend a penny at the local shop. My house is about 20 minutes away from you.... We can change all the stepper motors in your instrument cluster for nearly nothing. I have a couple dozen of them in the drawer in my shop. Total time, start to finish is about an hour. The fan you have on order can be installed in about 10 minutes. Call me......

Just an up date the dealer had told me $400 to $600 to replace the actuator for the outside air to recirculate. After two hours of waiting for them to diagnose which actuator it was they gave the real number, $2,170.00. I said no thanks and came home.

I do too, but for the time being I'm money ahead. If I was out near there, by now, Mike and his gang would have installed a super charger in my ride.:grin2:

Damn. Did you tell them you wanted them to fix the truck and not put a down payment down on a new one ?

Did they charge you for the diagnosis and estimate? I paid $85 dollars for testing on my wife's car one time because engine light came on. Turned out the gas cap was not on right with enough turns. Testing $85. Repair $0 took cap off and put it back on. Thank you very much. The old saying, time is money!!!

OUCH, MDean . . .

FYI . . . Many years ago a couple of Stepper Motors croaked on The Doophus and the Chevy Dealer down here replaced the entire system with a bill for about 1500 bucks. Their claim was they only replace the entire system, not just a Stepper Motor or two.

Hallelujah . . . GM Warranty paid in full.

Since then I've learned Stepper Motors run about FIVE BUCKS each.
