I like how the fix is just for new clips for the spark plug wires and not for actualy fixing the problem.

GM taking the cheap way out again

Sorry, folks...I tried a search for existing threads as well, just slipped me. My attention was called to the CNN article by a co-worker this morning asking me what year my Monte was. I would think that since the Series II is pretty much unchanged from 03 - 05, would it not still apply to 04/05 model years? Guess i will have to consult the dealership.

Hi `Matt,
I am sure that `if you check with ZZP that they will
be updated on the problem. And `if they are not
at present...I am sure they will `be.

I am hoping that one of our member's, or tech's
will take pictures of problem (clips) & post for everyone
to see.
p.s. Really like your new `sig by Enzo `Brock

I was wondering if someone else was going to catch that. They fix where the oil leak is going but not the oil leak itself.
