#410 of 655 Re: 2003 Express A/C Blows Warm Air at idle [unixnerd]
Jun 28, 2005 (3:21 pm)
Excerpt from TSB below, mentions 02 Yukon. You should be able to go to the dealer and have them pull up the TSB #01-01-39-004, also try www.alldatadiy.com
A/C Not Cold Enough, A/C Blows Warm Air with Vehicle at Extended Idle (Install Auxialiary Electric Coolant Fan) #01-01-39-004
A/C Not Cold Enough, A/C Blows Warm Air with Vehicle at Extended Idle (Install Auxiliary Electric Coolant Fan)
2000-2002 Chevrolet and GMC C/K Utility Models (Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon, Yukon XL)
2002 Cadillac Escalade
With 6.0L Engine (VINs U, N -- RPOs LQ4, LQ9)
Some customers may comment that the A/C stops cooling and blows warm air when the vehicle is idling for an extended period of time such as sitting in traffic.
Inadequate airflow over the condenser may cause this condition.
The addition of an auxiliary fan in front of the condenser radiator assembly may help to alleviate this condition. The coolant fan will come on each time the A/C compressor is commanded on by the PCM. This fan will create a roaring sound when operating.

Jun 28, 2005 (6:30 pm)
I have a '99 Express with 96000 miles, I replaced spurk plugs, cables, rotor, rotor cap, fuel filter, oil, oil filter. Water pump not long ago. The van was giving me problem to start, I thouthg I fixed the problem after replacing all of the above, but the van didn't start. someone told me it was the fuel pump, I purchase a pump from the dealer ($460) and the van starts but it jerks a little, when in idle, the engine doesn't run smooth. the ride is ok, but not like before, especially when going up hill. The problem can be notice also when going in reverse. After spending a lot of money, and time, I'm not please with the results. Dealer couldn't find the problem either. please help me.
#412 of 655 ERRATIC FUEL GAUGE
Jun 29, 2005 (7:59 pm)
MY 1997 CHEVY VAN 5.7 VORTEC G10 HAS HAD AN ERRATIC FUEL GAUGE SINCE DAY ONE. I HAVE REPLACED THE FUEL SENDING UNIT, FUEL PUMP AND INST CLUSTER WITH NO LUCK. MECHANIC HAD TO MANUALLY ADD/CHANGE RESISTANCE OF FEED WIRE TO GAUGE, BUT DID NOT OR COULD NOT CALIBRATE CORRECTLY. THE GAUGE READS FULL WHEN FULL BUT READS ALMOST 1/4 TANK WHEN RUNS EMPTY. CAN I ALSO MANUALLY PUT A VARIABLE POT-METER TO GET A PRECISE RESISTANCE TO SEE IF GAUGE CALIBRATES WITH THE NEW RESISITANCE ADDED OR SHOULD I CONTINUE TO GO TO BED WITH MY ODOMETER READINGS AND HOPE I DON'T DREAM THEM AWAY? THANKS. PS-I CAN'T FIND IF MY VAN IS RWLD OR 4WLD--HELP?

Welcome to the Forums, sherrodman! You might also want to post your question in the Got a Quick, Technical Question? discussion. By the way, it's a good idea to take your caps lock button off -- when you type in all caps, readers might think you're shouting at them
#415 of 655 Re: Shocks [wlunsford]

Hello, I own a 1997 2500 12 passenger Express van. Technically it is the same as the 2000. I tried every possible shock brand out there and believe it or not the best results I got were from KYB shocks, the series is GAS A JUST. I was very skeptical about using Japanese shocks on my van, but once I tried them, believe me I was amazed at the smooth ride and stability. I tried, Monroe Gas Magnum and the ride was back braking, too hard. I tried Gabriels and too soft. I even went with the very expensive Rancho RS9000X and they were either too soft or too hard, could not find a comfortable setting out of 9 they have. Finally a friend told me that his montero improved ride and stability with these KBY Gas A Just shocks, so I decided to spend an other $ 150.00 for the set and these were the best $150.00 I put into my van.
For even more stability, if needed, I changed the rims on my van for a set of 2003 Dodge Ram 8lug mag wheels, which by the way look awesome, can send you pics if you want. I got the wheels from ebay, when they arrived, I put one on in the front driver's side and found that the wheels were too wide on the inside so the steering arm was touching the wheel and could not use these rims, I liked the rims so much that I decided to buy a set of spacers to be able to install them. I got a set of 2" spacers, but 1" would have been enough to space the wheels. Now the Van looks great and I have even more stability when cornering.
Hope I have been helpful. Take care, Judge5
