#6354 of 6471 2003 Tahoe AC issue
May 22, 2009 (4:35 pm)
I have an 03 Chevy Tahoe Z71 -- the ac seems to work but the fan doesn't blow at ll unless you are going down the road pretty fast it will blow out some. I checked the BLOWER fuse and it was fine. It seems to me that this might be a wiring issue. Does anyone know where the ac fan is located in the engine so I can check the wire going to it? Also, what other things can I check myself before having to have it looked at by a professional. Thanks

You need fuel, compression, and spark to run (all done at the correct time of course). If your vehicle cranks, starts, and runs for a period before stalling out, then your compression is 'probably' okay, and your electrical is 'probably' okay. I'd be focused on verifying good fuel supply.
For instance, if you had a bad fuel pump or some obstruction in the fuel delivery, you might have enough fuel to start after the engine was rested, but not enough to keep it running.
Who has determined that all of those parts had to be replaced? Seems you could have had a mechanic spend an hour of time diagnosing this problem, before throwing all kinds of expensive parts at it. If you're not a mechanic and don't have any diagnostic tools, then I'd suggest getting it towed to a competent/reliable mechanic, and have him diagnose the problem and fix it for you. He can do compression tests on the cylinders to know that the internals of the engine are okay. He can check the fuel pressure to validate fuel delivery. He can check the engine computer, to see what error codes might have been recorded, etc. You could randomly throw 20 more parts at this and still not find the problem.

#6361 of 6471 Buying a Z71
Jul 30, 2009 (2:36 pm)
Hi! I am trying to purchase a 2005 or 2006 Black Tahoe Z71. I am pretty picky and so my choices are limited. It seems that the Z71 comes with sunroof, DVD player and leather interior from what I've seen. I have been told not to buy from the north (due to snow salt and rust), but it seems most of them come from up there. I did find one somewhere else but it's a 2005 with 93K miles. Is that bad? The others had 65K miles or so. I work very close to home so I won't be driving long distances everyday, but just don't want to buy a car that has too many miles to start. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks!

I really have no idea what that means. It's from a dealer, is this soemthing I should ask them? If so, what do I need to look out for?
