    I'm assuming the 2005 model I have came with the platinum AC plugs(?) I will get the iridium as long as it matches the OEM version, which I'm sure it does if it's made by AC Delco.

    Thanks for the comments and help

    I guess I need to get one of the T's that Cody mentioned if I want to pursue this, which I do once I feel I have the time. I have the shifter in the middle so I should not have to worry about that...

    Adding MP3 Player Hookup to '05 TB

    What about a bad or poor connection on the ground wire? The fact that it's been working okay in between fill-ups and only malfunctions when I fill the tank makes me wonder if the system is okay but...

    How old is your suburban? And, not only how old but has it been sitting a long time without use? I have heard of the brake fluid getting so old from sitting that it jells up. I'm not sure if this...
