What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV
#45 of 184 2000 Suburban with cracked block
Sep 23, 2002 (2:39 am)
We were on vacation 600 miles away from home and had engine trouble. To make a long story short the Chevy Dealer told us we had a cracked block and it would cost between 5300 and 6300 for a new engine. We had 68,000 miles on it and were told there was no warranty left. We had pretty much always serviced it at our local dealer and are stunned at this happening.
Now that we are home I am wondering if anyone knows where we can go for factory assistance. I prefer names over just calling in and complaining.
Any assistance would sincerely be appreciated.
#46 of 184 Axle/hub failure ??

We had an incident today where control of our Tahoe was lost with an initial veering to the left. When the vehicle came to rest the left rear hub assembly was folded under the vehicle. Has anyone seen any similar failures? Thanks!

OK.. Got a problem. My car dealer went out of business about 1 year after I bought my Tahoe.(He lost his dealership!) Did have one recall on the driver seat, had that taken care of. Now I see that there was one for the windshield wipers. Never got a letter or anything. What do I do ?? Help needed here. have about 120,000 miles on it now, still love it and runs ok. Just needs a minor tune up. Any ideas out there that can help me? Also, reading the TSBs on 1996 Tahoes' and have no idea what all these problems are?? Are these recalls ??

I just got a 96 Tahoe, 5.7L, 107K mile, with Tow pkg. I wonder what is the max tow capacity? How often should I change transfer case oil? Do I need a ATF change or a ATF flush?
I got a problem of: if I dont drive it 3-4 day, the battery is going low and need a jump. Anyone have any idea?
#50 of 184 If it's the original battery....

it's definitely past due for a new one. Short of that (no pun intended) there may be something draining it elsewhere. Anything been done to the car electrically lately?

thanks for response, for the past 3 yr, i saw 2 replacement. so I assume it is the 3rd, counting the original 1st. I took the current battery to pepboy to test. they say it is good. test hole showng green. no electronic job lately.
Also should I change transfer case oil?
#52 of 184 Third row seat question
Oct 21, 2002 (6:49 am)
Does anyone know if a third row seat can be installed aftermarket? I have a 2001 Tahoe that did not come equipped with the third row seat, and I find that now that my wife is pregnant with twins, I need a third row seat, but I don't want to go out and buy a new Tahoe! Any suggestions?

I think I found the problem draining the bettery.
It is the driver side, vanity mirror light.
