Some Chevy Camaro owners may notice a squeaking sound coming from under the hood. Now, a cause for this issue has been identified, as has a fix to be performed by dealers.
According to a recent report from GM TechLink, the squeaking issue may be present in 2019 through 2023 Chevy Camaro models equipped with either the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine or naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine. The sound may be heard from the passenger’s side of the vehicle while driving over bumps. Additionally, GM TechLink says the sound may be more noticeable after the engine has reached its normal operating temperature.
The squeaking has been identified as the radiator air baffle on the right side of the vehicle making contact with the core support. To address this issue, GM recommends that a dealer technician first verify that the radiator air baffle is indeed contacting the core support, and if so, the baffle should be trimmed of material in order to provide greater clearance with the core support.
To do this, technicians should remove the ride-side radiator baffle and trim the inboard material to ensure enough clearance with the radiator core support.
As a reminder, the sixth-generation Chevy Camaro is offered with four engine options total. In addition to the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG gasoline engine or naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX gasoline engine already mentioned, the Chevy Camaro is also offered with the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT1 gasoline engine and supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine. The Chevy Camaro rides on the GM Alpha platform, with production taking place at the GM Lansing Grand River plant in Michigan.
Some Chevy Camaro Convertible owners may also notice that the convertible top does not fully complete its folding cycle. Check out GM Authority’s previous coverage on what may be causing the issue and what a dealer technician will do to address it.
