I talked to two dealers today and they both said, my car doesn't have the F29 recall. It's an 07 and was bulit in August or so. I still hear the noise for sure though. Any suggestions on what to do. They looked up my VIN and there's no recall.

Unless the dealer wants to do it as a courtesy, there is no F29 recall for your vehicle. It should have came from the factory with the updated software. What gas do you run? Brand and octane?

I use Krogers gas which from what I understand is BP. I have a freind that works for BP. He told me that their 87 octane is actually 89. mI always use regular in the Caliber. I'm only on my second fill up.

Yeah, the F29 recall was for those Calibers built in a specific time frame, after that date Calibers should have left the assembly plant with it already installed. That is probably why yours doesn't have the symtoms of the recall, which is a good thing.:)

HSKR is right too, if there was a recall that included your Caliber, you should have received something in the mail regaring it!

Does this mean I don't have the problem ?? I swear I hear it once it's warmed up.

Yeah, that would be a good thing to do as well. Let us know how you make out and what they say!
