I replaced throttle position sensor, idler air control valve, pcv valve, cleaned my maf sensor, also checked map sensor and had fuel injection flush. I ... Read More
It seems like this is a major issue with the transmission. I have just had the second one go out. Had the first one replaced at the local GMC dealer here in Montgomery, Alabama at 600 miles "outside of the original warranty", my cost $3500. Now, Tuesday this week, November 29, 2001 at 160k, vehicle won't move. Was working just fine, parked, went to leave, no reverse, no forward gear, nothing. ... Read More
I've been reading this thread for a while and thought it might be helpful to share my chain of events with my 2008 Yukon XL SLT. We bought this car new. It now has 77K miles. It starts out with being told your oil is low when you take it in for an oil change. If you change your oil regularly and drive under normal conditions, this should not happen. Don't ... Read More
I've had Suburbans since 1972 ('72, '77, '79, '81, '85, '89, '92, '95, '99 , 2001 and now a 2007 GMC Yukon XL. I will NEVER own another GM product for as long as I live, and I will do my da-nest to be sure none of my family ever does either! Bought the 2007 with 59,000 miles on it and got a helluva deal on it (or so I thought! ... Read More

I have 130K on this 6.0 L engine and have an intermittent problem that has been driving me nuts. I can sometimes just start the engine and it starts rough ( misfires) or drive up to 50 plus miles with it running smooth, before I receive engine code P0301 - Cylinder #1 misfire. I have replaced the following over the course of 6 months ever since it did not pass emission ... Read More
I too have a 2002 Yukon Denali XL. We have been having problems with the vehicle for over a year and many service departments and mechanic's have looked at this problem for us and we still have the same problem. When the vehicle heats up and we turn it either direction, it will shake, bounce and make a horrible noise. The most recent solution we were told today was from a ... Read More

GMC Yukon XL Rear Differential's are poorly built, and should be recalled! Already rebuilt mine twice! Only problem I ever had next to the steer box, which as a recall item on 2002.
I have a 2001 GMC Yukon 4x4 that needs the rearend replaced. I am considering removing the existing rearend and installing a rearend from either a 1999 or 2004 GMC Denali, which have the same gear ratio and same 8-1/2" ring gear size. Are either of these rearends compatible with the 2001 Yukon rearend?
Well there's only one reason disc brakes squeak on any vehicle and that's the fact that the back of the brake pad is metal, usually cheap carbon steel, and only because its only function is to hold the brake lining material in place as the steel back is secured into the caliper by whatever means the auto manufacturer has designed, and it is in contact with the piston on the caliper, ...

Help! I have an intermittent power problem. My Yukon is no experiencing a more re-curring problem where I'll go hop in it and the battery will be dead or near dead. At first I thought it was because my cigarette lighters are constant on and my radar detector and satellite radio are plugged in. Well, I got into the habit of upglugging them and that seemed to work for a while. ... Read More
I have a 2001 GMC Yukon XL. It has around 73K miles on it. The brakes squeak almost every time they are applied. I have had them checked at 2 different places and my husband even looked at the pads with the mechanics, who both told him that they brake pads and rotors were fine, and did not need replacing. Is there anything else this could be, or just a chronic ... Read More
I have a 2001 denali and will be getting it out of the shop tomorrow. My tranny took a dump that cost me $3900 to rebuild.

I traded my 1999 Denali in June with 70,000 miles and praying that it would make it to a dealership that sold imports. The GMC person that I talked to wouldn't offer me one penny towards repairs. I hope that things turn out better for you. My regular mechanic told me that he is making a ton of money on all of the repairs. My Denali had major safety issues and ... Read More
My 2001 GMC Yukon Denali XL vibrates like crazy whenever I drive over rough pavement. The steering wheel vibrates, the dash board vibrates, the chairs vibrate and the windows vibrate.

Both reliable, quality TRUCKS and TRUCK based vehicles. In sedans, Toyota and Honda reign supreme for reliability and quality. My Ford F-150 4 WD is one fine vehicle as was my 1980 Chevy (GM) passenger van. Although I like my 2001 Chevy Blazer LT, the Ford Explorer feels like a nicer, more roomy vehicle.

We have a 99 Ford Expedition and were ready to trade it in for a 2000, 2001, 2002 or 2003 GMC Yukon XL 1500 because of the additional room behind the 3rd seat, but started reading about piston slap problems with the GMC Yukon as well as other GMC vehicles. I asked the dealer but he said he isn't aware of this problem (yeah right). Can anyone give any advice or ... Read More
Anyone had any problems with front wheel bearings on 2WD Yukon XL's? I've got a 2001 Yukon XL with 50K miles and the right front wheel bearing disintegrated with no warning.

I have called the GMC Customer Assistance line and was told that there are no bearing assemblies available, but they are in production. However, ... Read More

I am interested in Purchasing a GM Major Guard extended warranty policy for my 2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali at a discount. Looking for any input or suggested dealers.I now have 34,400 miles on SUV.
I purchased a 2002 XL back in October 2001. During that first winter season I skied once a week in the mountains. Colorado uses magnesium chloride to combat snow and ice on I-70. After only 6 months, all side chrome, front grill, and Yukon insignias were rusty. GM replaced all chrome including both bumpers with no hassles. The 2nd ski season I made it a point to wash the truck after ... Read More

I got the $1000 2001/2002 Yukon rebate certificate a couple weeks ago from GMC. This rebate is for current GMC Suburban owner and is not transferrable. I purchased a 1997 GMC Suburban SLT 4WD. This certificate is valid until 9/30/2001 and it made me thinking about getting a Yukon XL Denali.
I found a seat belt recall for 2001 Suburbans on the TrailerLife website. Naturally, when we called the dealer they knew nothing about it. I thought that I would pass this information along. GM Recalls 10,000 Trucks and SUVs General Motors is recalling about 10,000 model-year 2001 full-size pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles to replace defective seat belts. The recall covers certain 2001 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size extended-cab pickups, ... Read More

Two more questions. If you've driven a 2001 Autoride Suburban how does it feel over bumpy roads compared to Premium ride? Also, My wife and I drove a Yukon XL (probably with Premium Ride) last month and 2 Suburbans w/ Premium ride yesterday. We both remembered the Yukon XL as having a better ride and more direct (Less center play) in the steering. Are we imagining this?

For what it's worth, I recently experienced the cold air phenom. on a long distance trip through snow country. I have a Yukon XL, 2001 and the problem only surfaced in cold climates--I'm from So. Cal. My wife complained throughout the trip. I haven't found a cure either. Sounds like a design defect that GMC will not acknowledge.
We ordered our '01 Yukon XL on Jan 2 of 2001. Ordered Garnet Red with 1SC and other options. I worked with dealer in North Carolina who sells all their ordered vehicles for $200 below invoice. They do have a $212 "processing fee", but at that price, I really didn't argue about it much. The invoice includes a 1% ad fee which seems to be standard for the area. All was ... Read More

I don't understand your comment that a Yukon XL is thousands more than a Suburban. I own a 2001 Suburban LT, leather, autoride, 4WD, etc. and sat down with both a GMC dealer and Chevy dealer during negotiation. We compared invoice prices and the two were $105 apart (we did make some assumptions because option packages are different). We went with the Suburban because selling price was lower -- even though ... Read More
Hi. I am about to take delivery of a 2001 Yukon XL LT 2500/8.1/4.10. (Ordered 9/3/00, delivery scheduled for 1/29/01).

Of course, I had no luck. So ... Read More
After going to several gmc dealers, I found a partsman who knew of those black factory wheel moldings on the 2001 3/4 ton XL... L.F.#15747829 R.F.#15747830,L.R.#15750081 and R.R.#15750082. I know the front fenders on the yukon are same as XL but no one will verify if the rear moldings will fit the yukon. If anyone knows,please post.

The gold used for the second color (two tone)on the 2001 polo green Yukon XLs is the factory gold used by GM on both the Yukons and the Suburbans.

What city are you in? I went to my local GMC dealer and all I got was a 2001 brochure for the Yukon and Yukon XL. I was also able to read a GM memo on the '01 Denali.
