Today I received a notification that my 2000 Grand Prix GT is included in this recall as well as many other GM vehicles with the 3.8L V6. That's fine and, obviously, I don't want my car bursting into flames! What I am having a problem with is the notice states that a new front valve cover will be installed and the engine top cover/oil filler tube assemblies will be permanently removed! Firstly I want to keep my Grand Prix original. Secondly, in my opinion, without the cover the engine compartment will be far less attractive! According to the notice I received "the parts are not yet available".
Is there some way we can convince GM to make a redesigned valve cover that will accommodate the top cover and oil filler tube to make our cars stay original and maintain the appearance of the engine compartment? I'd like to hear from others on this.
Thank you,
-Jim
