NHTSA ID Number: 10224833

Manufacturer Communication Number: 18-NA-069

Summary

This service bulletin provides a service procedure to correct conditions of Poor Engine Performance in Extremely cold weather conditions, CAC Icing, MIL Illuminated with DTCs set.

 


Condition

Some customers may comment on one or more of the following conditions when driving in extremely cold weather conditions (-18°C or less / 0°F or less):

  • Loss of power
  • Hesitation on acceleration
  • Stalling condition
  • MIL Illuminated

Technicians may find one or more of the following DTCs set:

  • P0299
  • P0234
  • P2227
  • P00C7

 

Cause

This condition may be caused by ice accumulation in the charge air cooler (CAC), restricting air flow.

 

Correction

Important: The DTCs and symptoms above are not exclusively related to freezing/icing conditions. Only follow this bulletin when the condition is directly correlated with extreme cold of -18°C or less / 0°F or less. System leaks should always be ruled out first for P0299. Signs of moisture will always be present in the CAC system and are not a reliable indicator of freezing/icing.

Note: DO NOT replace the CAC if the service part is already installed.

If any of the above conditions are present, allow time for possible ice build up in the CAC to melt by allowing the vehicle to thaw in a warm environment, and drain the moisture from the CAC.

If any of the above conditions are confirmed to be caused by freezing/icing, replace the original CAC with the new design wide fin service part. Confirmation should include:

  • P0299 and/or P0234 present.
  • >100 mL (3.4 oz) moisture drained from thawed CAC.
  • Confirmed no leaks in CAC / CAC ducts.
  • Recent vehicle use in extreme cold (-18°C / 0°F or less).

If not recently performed, an oil change may be necessary to remove any moisture from the engine.

If there is a check engine light with a P0234 or P0299 DTC during cold weather driving, refer to the following information:

– Frozen oil/water contaminant in the Turbocharger Wastegate Regulator Solenoid Valve (TCV) is often concurrent with vehicle operating conditions that cause CAC freezing. Cleaning or replacing the TCV solenoid should be performed in addition to CAC protection measures specified in this bulletin.

For 2016-2018 Malibu, a new winter grille cover has been released to prevent this issue from occurring in extreme cold weather (-18°C or less/0°F or less). The winter grille cover needs be added to avoid the customer from returning with concerns related to charge air cooler icing.

Perform the TCV thermo-wrap procedure below.

The winter grille cover can be installed by the technician during the repair procedure as listed in this bulletin. After the repair is complete, dealer service personnel must educate the customer on the installation and removal procedure of the winter grille cover. Installation instructions are included with the winter grille cover.

Note: The Engine Control Module calibration should be updated. The new calibration will enable a revised transmission shift pattern during cold weather operation, which does not use overdrive as frequently. As a result, some customers may notice elevated engine RPMs during highway operation. This operating mode will reduce the potential for ice to build up inside the charge air cooler, and the potential for setting P0299 or P0234 diagnostic codes.

The customer must be informed by dealership personnel by explaining the new engine control module calibration and its effects on transmission shift patterns at highway speeds during cold weather to avoid a customer return to the dealership after the programming is completed.

Important: The winter grille cover should be installed in the extreme cold weather and removed when the winter season changes.

Additional covers and repeat installation are customer pay.

Note: Clean the surface before installing the winter grille cover.

Reprogramming

GM Diagnostic/Programming (TIS2Web)

 

Approved J2534 Device with TIS2WEB can reprogram 1996 and later All GM Modules.

To obtain the latest electronic controller calibration information for your vehicle, go to https://tis2web.service.gm.com/tis2web and enter the vehicle's 17 character Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and select 'Get CAL ID’.

You can then compare the latest part number with the actual number installed on the vehicle to determine if a reprogram is needed.

The Service Programming System (SPS) application is part of the TIS2Web system. To program an ECU, the SPS application must communicate with the vehicle control modules using the proper J2534 programming interface tool.

The following are the supported interface tools:

The Tech 2 supports model years 1996 and beyond. With the addition of the CAN Diagnostic Interface (CANdi) module, Tech 2 is fully backward compatible with current Tech 2 functionality and operates transparently when diagnosing non-CAN-equipped vehicles.

Servicing the next generation Global A vehicles will require the diagnostic software, GDS2, Global Diagnostic System 2 running on a local PC device while the MDI is connected to the vehicle. The GM MDI is the Global Diagnostic tool for future vehicles starting with Global A vehicles.

The GM MDI was introduced in the fall of 2007 for Pass-Thru programming and offers faster programming speed. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and into the future. Click here to view a list of GDS supported vehicles.
