#5865 of 6471 Having trouble pumping gas into Tahoe
Mar 18, 2006 (10:25 am)
I have a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with 75,000 miles. A week ago I started experiencing a problem that I can't seem to figure out. When I try to pump gas into my tank, the pump clicks off repeatedly as if the tank is full, but the tank is not full. I can see the gas coming up and then filtering down into the tank, and I can eventually get the tank full - at a pace of about $1-$5 at a time (and yes, I've tried numerous gas stations). I took the truck to my regular servicer and they "scoped" the hose to the gas tank and inspected the gas tank - no hose blockages were found, and the only thing with the gas tank that appeared to need service was one "seal" (no idea what this is). They also "flushed" the fuel system. I'm still having the problem though, albeit a little more intermittently - I can get $10-$15 at a time in now, followed by spurts of $1-$5. Also, I'm noticing a ringing sound coming from around my gas tank, but I can't confirm that it is actually coming from the gas tank. Any ideas as to what the problem might be here, and more importantly, what to do about it? Thanks.
#5866 of 6471 99 Chevy Tahoe Squeaking...
Mar 19, 2006 (7:46 pm)
I dropped a friend off tonight and turned down the music and noticed when my foot was on the brake in gear, forward or reverse i heard some sort of squeaking, and again at home in teh garage. I couldnt notice a change when driving over 10mph, nor in park the squeaking was gone. I have a hunch it is the transmission. The truck has somewhere near 100k miles and is like 3k over an oil change >.< its too damn cold out and I prefer doing stuff myself. What are these symptoms of? Could it be because of no oil change? I heard the sound almost directly in or under the engine..somewhere in there?! let me know!

Yes there was a faulty solder joint on the circuit board. Please talk to you local dealers service department. There was a recall.

Possible, but it would be so labor intensive (new seats, new wiring, new electronic componentry and sensors), that there would be no way to make it worth it.
There are a TON of these trucks out there that do have the side bags, just keep looking.
Actually, strangely enough, we had an '02 Avalanche that had them (back when they were standard, like they should have always been), then bought an '04 Suburban that didn't have them...very weird to be moving up 2 model years and almosgt $8k extra in price, but not get something as basic as side airbags. I asked one of the local dealers, when they became an option, why they never ordered any with them, and was told "Well, most people who buy such a large full-frame vehicle could care less, and the lower we keep the MSRP, the better." Dumb excuse if you ask me, but this is the same place who said buying a 4wd model, even if you never used it once, was better than getting a 2wd just because it would be worth more in the end...
#5869 of 6471 99 Tahoe with possible tranmission trouble
Mar 22, 2006 (5:38 am)
So I have a 99 Tahoe that I like to make "get up and go". Well I have a problem that reacently popped up. When I put the gas all the way down it doesn't take off like it use to. The engine and the RPMs go full throtle like they are suppose to but the truck hardly increases in speed. Its as if the transmission isn't sending the power to the back wheels. Or the transmission isn't kicking into gear. And as long as I hold the gas down it continues to do this. I have to let off the and press down slowly to get it up to speed, which is no fun. So if anyone knows what the problem is I would appreciate the words.

Has anyone ever bought and installed a PowerTrax No slip locker in thier differential? If so is it easy to do and is it worth the money and effort?

How many miles on that Tahoe?
#5872 of 6471 Re: RPMs vs MPH for 2003 Z71 Tahoe
Mar 22, 2006 (2:35 pm)
My speedo just started reading what I figure is WAY high. I have a 2003 Z71 Tahoe, with 5.3 engine and 3.73 ratio rear-end (and 17 inch wheels). Can someone with similar give me MPH at certain RPMs, so I can stay out of trouble while I decide if I want to fix this? Dealer says they need to pull whole unit out of dash, and I will be without car for a week (and out $500-700)...!
For instance, what is MPH at 2000 RPMs? Or RPMs at 70, 80, etc?
