Bulletin Information
Bulletin Title: #N202299080 - Special Coverage Adjustment - Camshaft Cover Replacement - (Jul 28, 2020)
Bulletin Type: Campaign
Bulletin Category: Special Coverage
Applies To: Engine Mechanical


So far I have seen letters from 2011 through 2015, but I would assume that it goes to 2016. If someone can get a copy of the actual bulletin, I would like to add it here.






The diaphragm they are referring to is the (PCV) vacuum regulator on the valve (camshaft) cover, the round portion on the rear driver side of the valve cover. The actual PCV valve causing the issue (there are two of them) is the orange nipple you may have read about located in the intake manifold. Read more below. This fix you will more than likely only be temporary. When the leak allows the crankcase to become over pressurized again, it may blow the regulator out again and/or the front crank seal, and/or cause oil to start to blow by possibly including out the valve cover, the oil pan , CPASV seals and other areas. Or you might be one of the lucky ones and it will hold. Roughly $75 and minimal time and effort is cheap insurance. I've had mine installed for some time now and have no more issues.

Remember the vacuum PCV valve is in the intake. The boost PCV valve is at the turbo.

Probably more than you'll ever want to know about the PCV failure, collateral damage and fixes:

Added the actual Bulletin. for some reason Chevrolet is calling the PCV vacuum regulator a PCV valve. Is this a gimmick to get more vehicles in to fix a symptom and them charge more to fix the actual issue?

Or they're just actually that stupid and don't know what the root cause is and Xtreme is a genius. Both of which could be true or false. ;)

I had mine fixed already actually but now caused a secondary problem I think - code P0442- small evap leak. Should this repair already paid for taken care of this small evap leak or would this be considered new issue? (I don;t want to have to pay repair againif should of been fixed with original problem) thanks

yes I see this, but in the pdf file you posted > the back of page 4 which has the info I need to fill in and is the actual 'Reimbursement form' is not there. So what I did was take a screen shot of the image of that form you posted above and filled out, but dealership said they could not accept that and need the actual form (not a snapshot of it off the internet. So I was hoping you could rescan or repost that backside of document and reupload to this post. I did call GM number listed on bottom of page 4 with no help as they were not able to send me an electronic copy of this same form and stated I need to go back to local GM dealer and work with one of their "Experience Managers" to help resolve this issue.....So I'm going to do that unless again someone here can repost that form...thanks again for any help ahead of time.

The back of the reimbursement form is blank. Sounds like they’re jerking you around there.

It will be no earlier than Saturday for me to be able to scan this into a pdf. When I can, I will repost it. My guess is that they think you should have received this in the mail yourself and it would not be a picture copy. Just a way to "jerk" you around as Thebigzeus said.

Quick question on this. If I am already having the pcv leak problem, can I just use the DIY pcv fix? Or would I need to replace the camshaft cover as well now? Thanks!

Pull the plasic cosmetic cover off the engine, and with it running, place you finger over the hole on the round vacuum regulator. Do you feel air blowing out, then yes both, otherwise you may get away with just the fixkit.
