I had three Tahoe's 2001 lt 2003 Z71 both the 2001 and 2003 were very good trucks very few minor problems thumbs up for those models I also have an 07 Tahoe Z71 52,000 dollar truck and had all sought of problems from electrical harness, engine coils, bearings, fuel pumps and replaced the computer thought I could save money by not getting the warranty since chevy made such a strong truck right wrong about 10,000 in repairs already brought the truck with 70,000 thousand miles i know it had high miles but come on something gotta give thought i brought a lemon then i was surfing the web and found this site so disappointed in chevy my car has been sitting since the summer now has 92,000 miles and thinking about selling it i should have stuck with my 2003 Z71

#721 of 762 '01 Tahoe 4 wheel drive doesn't pull
Jan 25, 2012 (10:39 am)
Just went through a huge snowstorm in seattle to find that my 4 wheel drive isn't working. I can hear the transfer case engage when I put it in 4 Lo but the front wheels don't turn. Have confirmed that all the vacuum lines are in good shape. What should I check next??
Thanks for your comments
#722 of 762 03 Tahoe hates cold weather
Feb 05, 2012 (8:05 pm)
I have an 03 Tahoe that seems to hate cold weather. As soon as the temperature drops it starts running poorly. It's not always the same, some times it revs, other times it cuts out and wants to die. If I allow it to run until the temp gauge is straight up, shut it off, let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then restart it will run fine.
Two winters in a row I replaced the Mass Airflow sensor, (seemed to help but not completely) the third winter it threw the same code, my mechanic didn't think it could be that so he started other things, plugs and wires, throttle position sensor, throttle body, and THEN a MAF sensor.
By this time weather was warming up and it was running better, however, then I started getting "Reduced Engine Power" messages. My mechanic gave up so I took it to another mechanic. After 6 weeks he replaced the throttle body AGAIN, ran great until the weather got cold. Now I am back to the reving and cutting out. (The reving is a LOT of fun when road are bad) And I am starting to get the Reduced Engine Power messages again. The diagnostic machine says "lean on bank one (or two)". Once the temp gets up into the 50's for a couple of days the Check Engine light goes off and it runs great until the temp drops again.
I LOVE this vehicle except for this issue and I'm sure it is all related but we just can't find the problem. Does anyone have any ideas?
Oh, he checked the pressure on my fuel pump and said it was 52 off, 40 something when cranking. Is that low? I have never heard of a fuel pump going bad that way, I thought they just "quit".

I have the same exact problem!! I have a 2007 suburban with 151,000 miles sitting at the dealer not drivable and in pieces with a price tag of +/-$4500 to replace lifters and CAM shaft ...
this is a huge problem I have found with our Cars... This should be a recall.!!!
I don't know what to do ..Fix it??? Get a new (USED) engine..??? Trade it in..??
The dealer here in Texas said he will give me $10K to trade it in?
SO FRUSTRATED!!! Please let me know if you have had any luck with recalls.

You can get a crate engine for a lot less than $4,500 and it has a 3 yr warranty.
#727 of 762 Door Mirrors
Apr 24, 2012 (6:42 am)
My passenger side rear-view mirror does not return to the "saved" / auto setting. The interriror controls will adjust it and it works fine, but no matter how many times I re-set my seat/mirror driver preferences - all works and changes except the passenger mirror. Any ideas what may be causing this?
