1. Engine, Transmission, Transfer Case, Rear Axle Components and Catalytic ConverterFailures Due to Non-GM Engine and/or Transmission Control Module Calibrations BeingInstalled — Including GM Calibration Verification Requires and Recommends Notices

Notice:

Be advised that GM REQUIRES retrieving the Calibration Information and performingthe Calibration Verification Procedure as outlined in this Bulletin, whenever diagnosticsdetermine a hard part failure may have occurred on internal engine parts and BEFOREdisassembly, repair or replacement of an engine assembly under warranty.Be advised that GM strongly RECOMMENDS retrieving the Calibration Information andperforming the Calibration Verification Procedure as outlined in this Bulletin, wheneverdiagnostics determine a hard part failure may have occurred on transmission, transfercase or rear axle components and BEFORE disassembly, repair or replacement of a transmission,transfer case or rear axle assembly under warranty.It is also RECOMMENDED that the engine control module Calibration Verification Procedurebe performed whenever diagnostics determine that catalytic converter replacement isnecessary.While it is not a REQUIREMENT to verify transmission control module calibrations ongasoline engine applications, like it is with engine control module calibrations,they can still be verified in the same manner if it is necessary for any reason.

General Motors is identifying an increasing number of engine, transmission and catalyticconverter part failures that are the result of non-GM (aftermarket) engine and transmissioncontrol module calibrations being installed.

When alteration to the GM-released engine or transmission control module calibrationsoccurs, it subjects powertrain and driveline components (engine, transmission, transfercase, driveshaft and rear axle) to stresses that were not tested by General Motors.It is because of these unknown stresses, and the potential to alter reliability, durabilityand emissions performance, that GM has adopted a policy that prevents any UNAUTHORIZED Service Agent warranty Transaction submissions to any remaining warranty coverage,to the powertrain and driveline components whenever the presence of a non-GM calibrationis confirmed – even if the non-GM control module calibration is subsequently removed.

Warranty coverage is based on the equipment and calibrations that were released onthe vehicle at time of sale, or subsequently updated by GM. That’s because GM testingand validation matches the calibration to a host of criteria that is essential toassure reliability, durability and emissions performance over the life of the warrantycoverage and beyond. Stresses resulting from calibrations that are different fromthose tested and releasedby GM can damage and/or weaken components, leading to poor performance and/or shortenedlife.

Additionally, non-GM issued engine control module modifications often do not meetthe same emissions performance standards as GM issued calibrations. Depending on statestatutes, individuals who install engine control module calibrations that put thevehicle outside the parameters of emissions certification standards may be subjectto fines and/or penalties.

This bulletin outlines the Calibration Retrieval and Calibration Verification Procedures for ALL Service Agents including Service Agents NOT Required to Call PQC for Powertrain/Drivetrain Assembly Replacement Authorizationand Service Agents Required to Call PQC for Powertrain/Drivetrain Assembly ReplacementAuthorization, using the Tech 2® or GDS 2 to identifythe presence of non-GM control module calibrations.

If a non-GM calibration is found and verification has taken place through GM, theremaining powertrain and driveline warranty may be blocked and notated in Global Warranty Management (GWM) and the dealership willbe notified. This block prevents any UNAUTHORIZED warranty claim submission.
