About GMC Yukon XL

As one of the longest-running models sold in the United States, GMC Yukon XL has been produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand GMC since 2000 as a full-size Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally known as the GMC Suburban, Yukon XL got its name until 2000 model year. Regarded as the counterpart to the Chevrolet Suburban, Yukon XL is a stretched version of the standard Yukon riding on a longer wheelbase. Now, it is in its third generation.
The second-generation GMC Yukon XL was produced from January 2006 to December 2013 based on the GMT930 platform and debuted at the 2006 Los Angeles Auto Show in January for the 2007 model year. It came in two versions: standard 1500 and heavy-duty 2500 and three trim levels: well-equipped SLE, leather-lined SLT and top-of-the-line Denali (1500 only). And during this generation, Yukon XL was powered by 5.3 L V8 rated at 320 hp, 6.2 L V8 producing 403 hp and 8.1 L V8 making 340 hp and 455 lb-ft of torque, and these engines sent power through a 6-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels. The current Yukon XL has three trim levels: base SLE, luxurious SLT and plush Denali. Now, it gets power from a 5.3 L V8 producing 355 hp and a 6.2 L V8 generating 420 horsepower. And these two engines are mounted to the 6-speed or 8-speed automatic transmission.

GMC Yukon XL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting stout underpinnings, strong powertrains, a comfortable ride and spacious seating for up to nine plus their cargo, GMC Yukon XL is definitely a capable large SUV. But a wise and cautious Yukon XL owner will always be prepared well for these common problems on it for safety:
First, engine failure is the terrible issue that GMC Yukon XL drivers have complained and cooling system failure in it will let the engine issue becomes worse. In case it is too late, the best suggestion is to diagnose and solve this issue as early as possible. Some experienced Yukon XL drivers offer some practical symptoms such as impact, squealing or whining noises from the engine, white or gray exhaust smoke, engine sputtering at high speed, vehicle losing power while acceleration, hard starting and an inability to start. If the coolant keeps leaking, the engine stays at a high temperature, engine performance will decrease more dramatically and even brings about bad gas mileage as well as lit Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light. You had better inspect the Yukon XL spark plug, engine mount, air filter, piston ring, drive belt, oil filter, fuel pump, cooling hose, radiator hose and water pump gasket immediately if the engine runs not as usual.
Second, issues on suspension, transmission, braking and steering systems also pop out from time to time. In general, suspension issue often causes clunking noises from tire areas, intense car vibration, swerving or nose diving when braking, uneven tire wear, and even poor handling, and all these could be attributed to the Yukon XL shock absorber, ball joint, control arm bushing, pitman arm, coil spring insulator and sway bar link. And transmission failure results from Yukon XL torque converter while braking failure is caused by the Yukon XL brake pad and brake disc. As for steering failure, the Yukon XL power steering hose and power steering pump are often the culprits.
The significance of practicing routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your GMC Yukon XL should be realized. For example, many electrical parts of the Yukon XL such as speedometer, instrument cluster, A/C switch, seat switch, spark plug wires, power window switch, seat heater switch, ABS control module, mass air flow sensor, and knock sensor need routine maintenance due to a high frequency of usage. Seat belt, headlight, steering wheel, door handle, windshield wiper, wiper blade, and emblem should be on the routine maintenance list.
