A friend about a service bulletin that he saw for '87 Camaros having a problem with coolant temp sensor going bad and causing a the wire(s) connected to it to fry. It so happens that my '87 Camaro spiting out a code 15 (coolant temp sensor). I replaced the sensor and nothing changed. I tested the two wires (410 and 452) and the negative wire which returns to the CPU is not connecting.


So, if I went to the dealership would they still honor the service bulletin from so long ago? I would just call and ask, but I am worried they would just laugh at me. Thanks guys.

I just found this on the net. Would Chevrolet/GM (dealer) still honor these safety recalls? Its funny, my seat belt for the driver seat is broken too.

There is a difference between recalls and service bulletins. Recalls are done free, no matter how old the car is. Service bulletins are to help techs fix the car once they find out what the problem is, if it's out of warranty you pay. Recalls and service bulletins are two completely different things.

If you think you have an open recall on your car, go to a dealer and have them run a check on the vin. Oh, if a recall has already been done once, it's closed and they won't do it again, for free anyway. Nothing lasts forever ya know.

Japanese manufacturers warranty seatbelts on their cars for 5 years or 100,000 km.

At least that's what Subaru does in Canada.
