Some customers may comment on a hesitation, sag, stumble and/or backfire on acceleration during cool summer days/evenings with ambient temperature below 10°C (50°F).


Condition may be due to lean calibration with Low Reed Vapor Pressure Fuels (summer grade premium fuel) at lower ambient temperatures, below 10°C (50°F).

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
