can`t blame GM for the speed restrictions, new regulations forced on them by dumb ass government.

This is the first I've heard of an "engine shutdown message". Do you have any more specifics on this? What's your plan of attach, dealer visit? I am very interested to learn more about this issue.

Engine shutdown is insane!! What if your in the far left lane on a 8 lane stretch of highway and no one lets you back in time.
GM had better fix this pronto for all our cars.

Engine shutdown is the computer telling you to shut off the car, it doesn't actually kill the engine.

I experienced this with my diesel after the dealership messed up my oil change and it resulted in getting a new SCR.

It went into this mode and the car was dead, I mean it would BARELY move, but the engine physically kept running until I shut it off once I got off the road.

If you are getting EGT codes and regularly replacing sensors you have a problem with the car that needs to be fixed, not parts thrown at it. You likely either have a wiring issue, dpf issue causing an exhaust restriction, or ECM failure. The best thing you can do is to have it scanned and see what is going on when that occurs. There is a shutdown programmed into the car which comes in with the EGT showing temps high enough to cause a fire.

I replaced those bolts when the thread started. so far im at 50k miles and i have had the car from new 4/14 and i have had 2 o2 sensors (had to argue for the 2nd) a particulate filter sensor (not a emission part yet it monitors particulate ) and now a egt sensor. I was excited to look forward to a 2500 diesel silverado next summer but this car has left me with reliability doubts.

X2, I don't take my wife's advice to get another Toyota or Lexus and am now paying for it with frequent visits to dealer for repairs. 94 degrees F here today with 100% humidity and ac goes out. Go to dealer, they are out of loaner cars because according to service writer, they have so many cars in for repairs. Oh joy!! Head service writer advises that frequent regens are " normal" according to GM corporate. Might as well get used to that too!! So, now I am stuck with no AC and frequent regens.
