Had the truck towed to the dealer today, Alpine Buick GMC. Did not know where else to take it since I have not had any type of engine trouble in about 15 years. The tow truck driver looked at it and agreed that it could have been the tranny dip stick. He said he has seen a couple of others like this but worse.

Talked to the dealer after that, he has never had an engine fire in the shop that he knows of and will go over this one dilengently. I told him to make sure they check the intake and fuel injectors etc. because of the extinguisher dust. Sounds like they want to take it all apart.

Get this, this "stealer" gets $109 for labor per hour..........is that crazy or what???

Updates to follow.

No news yet, the dealer did not call the adjuster to let her know they were ready so I did yesterday. She is supposed to come out today or Monday/Tuesday. It really sucks because we go to Mexico on Wednesday and won't be able to check on things.

Mark if you are good with me picking up the tires after our trip that would be great. We will be back the week after. LMK if that is works for you.

Yeah, that works fine.

Do you need someone to go by the dealership while you're gone? I bet there are folks on here willing to help, including me. What would we be looking for?

Oh, come back with a tan!!

Not sure yet what is going to happen with my truck. They are supposed to look at it Monday or Tuesday, the insurance that is. As long as they do that I should be OK.

I appreciate the offer though and if it comes to that I will let you guys know.

The tan part should be do able as long as I don't pass out after a few cervezas on the beach. I'll let you know whats what when we get back
