the dealership has not tried everything if they have not done a compression test
water pumps seldom are responsible for overheating as their major failure is bearings and pump seal
if it has plastic radiator tanks, the plastic cracks and there is no pressure build up so the coolant boils off at a lower temp
there are a lot more tests that can be done other than what the dealer did

Contact the dealer for the location of the blower motor and then roll up your sleeves and get to work!

Before you take out the motor you might want to verify that it is receiving power. If not receiving power the motor could be good and the problem could be with the wiring - no need to replace a motor that is still good!!!!!!

What's the trouble Rich , A 2013 shouldn't need refrigerant added already ! Unless you work on A/C systems all the time I suggest you take it to someone who does . These newer system take very little refrigerant , an is very easy to over fill , which means it won't get cold , just like with too little refrigerant ! It should be evacuated an recharged , the recharge is weighted to exactly the right amount ! They shouldn't be allowed to sell refrigerant too the public , me as a tech , I have to be certified ! If I let refrigerant escape into the atmosphere I can get fined , it should be the same for joe Q public !

shift
stuck where, and when? (stuck in PARK>?) ??????????
all automatic cars have a feature called park lockout.
this car is under warranty, and most cars there is a bypass method stated in the operators guide, did you look there , in that book in glove box?
key on, step on brake, and see if you can get it to shift.

one some newer cars they took away the bypass feature. those cars should be avoided, (why invite getting stranded for so silly a reason ,huh)
http://www.gmc.com/content/dam/GMC/global/master/nscwebsite/en/home/Owners/Manuals/01_images/2k14acadia.pdf

page 9-19 shows no bypass... says call dealer.

the same book, shows, car can never be flat towed.
(no park bypass)

DTC P0497: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System No Flow During Purge
Circuit/System Description
The control module tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a large leak, or a stuck closed EVAP canister purge valve. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. When the conditions for running are met, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge valve OPEN and the EVAP vent valve CLOSED. This allows engine vacuum to enter the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge valve closed, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. If the system is unable to achieve the calibrated vacuum level, or the vacuum level increases too slowly, a DTC sets.

Diagnostic Aids
• A loose, missing, or damaged fuel fill cap can cause this DTC to set.
• A stuck closed, blocked, or restricted EVAP canister purge solenoid valve, can cause this DTC to set.
• A blockage or restriction in the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve vacuum supply hose, EVAP canister purge solenoid valve purge pipe, EVAP canister, or vapor pipe, can cause this DTC to set.
• A temporary blockage in the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve, purge pipe or EVAP canister could cause an intermittent condition. Inspect and repair any restriction in the EVAP system.
• To help locate intermittent leaks, use the J 41413-200 Evaporative Emissions System Tester (EEST) to introduce smoke into the EVAP system. Move all EVAP components while observing smoke with the J 41413-SPT High Intensity White Light. Introducing smoke in 15 second intervals will allow less pressure into the EVAP system. When the system is less pressurized, the smoke will sometimes escape in a more condensed manner.
• To improve the visibility of the smoke exiting the EVAP system, observe the suspected leak area from different angles with the J 41413-SPT .
• Observe the Freeze Frame/Failure Records vehicle mileage since the diagnostic test last failed may help determine how often the condition occurs that caused the DTC to set. This may assist in diagnosing the condition.

Is it the Bendix? Is your alternator working? Is your fuel pump working correctly. It could be a few things, just troal and error. Good luck.

On most vehicles there are 3 blinker bulbs on each side. One at the front corner, one at the rear corner and a third side repeater usually mounted in the front wing, (fender).
Some more modern car companies have started fitting the side repeater into the door mounted 'wing' mirror body.
The blink rate will usually be around 60 to 120 flashes per minute. If the rate on yours is usually slower, a higher speed flash suggests there is a blown or missing bulb.
