Good to hear they stood behind their work and took care of you.

I got a call this morning from the shop. My truck is back together and seems to be running well. They want to keep it over the weekend and put some miles on it and make sure there are no issues. The only thing of concern is the mention of "scratches" on the cam, but they don't think it needs any further attention. I need to get that statement in the paperwork I receive so that if the cam fails and/or takes out the lifters, I will be covered again.

General Motors Active Fuel Management engine control system has the ability, under certain light load driving conditions, to provide maximum fuel economy by deactivating 4 of the engines 8 cylinders. The engine will normally operate on 8 cylinders in V8 mode during starting, idling, and medium or heavy throttle conditions. When commanded ON, the engine control module (ECM) will direct the active fuel management system and deactivate cylinders 1 and 7 on the left bank and cylinders 4 and 6 on the right bank, forcing V4 mode. Refer to Lubrication Description and Cylinder Deactivation (Active Fuel Management) System Description.



Valve Lifter Oil Manifold Assembly

The valve lifter oil manifold assembly is bolted to the top of the engine block beneath the intake manifold assembly. The oil manifold consists of 4 electrically operated and normally-closed solenoids. Each solenoid directs the flow of pressurized engine oil to the active fuel management intake and exhaust valve lifters. The active fuel management oil pressure relief valve, located in the oil pan, regulates engine oil pressure to the lubrication system and the oil manifold.



When enabling conditions are met for active fuel management operation, the ECM will ground each solenoid control circuit in firing order sequence, allowing current to flow through the solenoid windings. With the windings energized, the solenoid valves open and direct pressurized engine oil through the valve lifter oil manifold into 8 vertical passages in the engine block lifter valley. The 8 vertical passages, 2 per cylinder, direct pressurized oil to the valve lifter bores of the cylinders to be deactivated. When vehicle operating conditions require a return to V8 mode, the ECM will turn OFF the ground circuit for the solenoids, allowing the solenoid valves to close. When the solenoid valves are closed, remaining oil pressure is exhausted through the bleed passages of the valve lifter oil manifold into the engine block lifter valley. The housing of the oil manifold incorporates several oil bleed passages that continually purge trapped air from the manifold and engine block.



To help control contamination within the active fuel management hydraulic system, a small replaceable oil filter is located in the valve lifter oil manifold oil inlet passage. The oil pressure sensor monitors engine oil pressure and provides information to the ECM.



Active Fuel Management Valve Lifters



When operating in V8 mode, the active fuel management valve lifters function similar to the non-active fuel management valve lifters. The active fuel management oil manifold solenoids are in the closed position, with no pressurized oil directed to the valve lifters. The pushrod travels upward and downward to actuate the rocker arm and valve. The spring loaded locking pins of the lifter are extended outward and mechanically lock the pin housing to the outer body of the valve lifter.



When the active fuel management system is commanded ON, the ECM will direct the solenoids of the oil manifold to open and direct pressurized oil to the valve lifters. Oil travels through the valve lifter oil manifold and engine block oil galleries and enters the inlet port of the valve lifter.



When operating in V4 mode, pressurized oil forces the locking pins inward. The pushrod remains in a constant position and does not travel upward and downward. The outer body of the lifter moves upward and downward independently from the pin housing. The valve lifter spring retains tension on the valve train components to eliminate valve train noise.



When the active fuel management system is commanded OFF, the ECM directs the solenoids of the oil manifold to close, stopping the flow of pressurized oil to the valve lifters. The oil pressure within the lifter will decrease and the locking pins will move outward to mechanically lock the pin housing and outer body.



The active fuel management engine block incorporates additional features to support active fuel management system operation. Engine oil pressure is routed to the valve lifter oil manifold assembly from an oil gallery in the rear of the cylinder block. Cylinders 1, 4, 6, and 7 each have 2 vertical, cast-in-block oil passages . The vertical oil passages permit oil flow from the manifold assembly to the valve lifter bores.


It's very rare that my truck goes into V4 mode.

Should have changed the oil once in a while dumbass.

Can they handle such a huge amount of contributions? I could see it setting a record.

I would say: post the name of the shop for good P/R, but I guess they donít need it if they offer that kind of service. Glad it worked out.

A Subaru dealer in Tahoe screwed up a water pump replacement and I was stuck with the bill in California at my dadís when it failed. My daughter overheated the car on the way home. They probably didnít run the engine when adding water. They are no longer in business.

Bitch, what do you know about turning a wrench? The only tool you ever worked around was most likely in some dude's pants.

Cute truck by the way. I guess they didn't have a cheaper one. Dig the rubber floor. Keeps the KY from staining the carpet I guess.

Unlike you, I don't need to use my truck to try to impress anyone. It's to haul stuff, and as a second "daily" should the need arise. Like earlier today, when I met my first triple square bolt and had to run out and by a set of tools to finish a job. Bare bones 4-banger is all I need. It's an intercooled turbo BTW. Google that if you must.

Turning a wrench? I've built cars in my garage, and do all my own repairs and maintenance. Here's some pics of what I just finished up, an 80k service on a PDK.

Well I'll be damned. A woman that fixes her own car. Good for you.
