I have a Saturn Astra AE-2009. Nothing but issues with it, but that's another story.... I just picked it up from the dealership- my engine light came on and it was shaking- they received code P0068?

What work did you have done to it when it was at the dealership?


My cars been in the dealership quite a bit. I recently had my head gasket replaced, along with a few more seals and gaskets- all under the powertrain warranty. This was maybe oct- nov 2013. Since 2009 I have had lots done, weatherstripping replaced due to leaking- still does a bit. Anti theft fuse replaced cause it blew- car stalled in the driveway, fuse that controls all power blew- if it happens again I may need to replace the CIM module? I'm fed up with this car. It only has 84,000 km. with the reading of code P0068, I was even given any options that can be done to prevent this from happening again but I had to pay for the diagnostic. They should recommend and I should have the choice. Would cleaning of the throttle perhaps help? I was informed of this by a friend - I called the dealership- and they said" ummm could be done, didn't think it'd be fair to you, spending more $ it'd be like $100". That's my choice!!!!
