Hey....I have the very same problem with my 2003 chevy tahoe. I bought it used and have had it for 5 mo's. It is a very slight slip that that were feeling. Its like you said, it hesitates at the end of the shift then it goes in. I took mine to a tranny mech. and he said that it might be a valve thats stick'n in there. Est. cost...$450.
But he was just guessing...Said he would have to go in to check to make sure. Either way...sounded expensive.
Also... he said that its a common problem wit these trannys. Anyone else with this annoying problem????

Heyyy....Somebody with my problem as well.
The quick temp. fix to this is to give the center console a good ole' beatn'. Hit the back side of the console (at the foldable cup holders) firmly a couple of times and that should stop the whinning thru the speakers.
If you haven't already found this remedy.
I notice this post is fairly old. If you found a permanent fix, let me know....
But i think the BOSE amp is shot and thats where it is located. Cost for the amp....about 300 dollars... Installation cost ???
#98 of 762 power sterring issues 2003 tahoe
Dec 10, 2005 (12:13 pm)
I have a 03' HOE with 82000. Every now n then, my power steering looses assist.
When parked, and if im braking, the steering assist is not there. Its like trying to steer a tractor.....very hard.
It also makes a noise when I'm turning hard thru a corner....I can feel some resistance in the steering thru the turn...
Is this normal??? I've read somewhere were this was ok...It just doesn't seem like a 40000 dollar truck should be doing this...
Anyone with the same proble...or suggestions???

What trouble codes does the computer have?
Codes can be read by a simple OBD II scanner that you can buy for about $100. Very good tool to have. Pays itself back fast. Dealer ask about $80 just to check codes.
You can also have codes read by a car parts store for free. At least I know AutoZone has this service.
Have codes checked and post again.
A quick guess about your problem since you mention that temperature went below 20 is that your intake air temperature sensor might be bad. If it is it takes to change the Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF) as the sensor is built into it. This is approximately $200 part.

There is a Chevy recall out on your Tahoe that will correct this problem.....NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 05V163000..........
FEB 04, 2004
CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, PICKUP TRUCKS, AND PASSENGER VANS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 135, ?PASSENGER CAR BRAKE SYSTEMS.? SOME OF THESE VEHICLES WERE PRODUCED WITH AN OUT-OF-SPECIFICATION BRAKE HYDRO-BOOST HOUSING RELIEF VALVE BORE.
CONSEQUENTLY, THE VALVE O-RING SEAL MAY FRACTURE. STEERING EFFORTS MAY BE SLIGHTLY INCREASED WHILE BRAKING OR PARKING. UNDER CERTAIN DRIVING CONDITIONS, A FRACTURED SEAL MAY REQUIRE A SLIGHT INCREASE IN THE APPLIED BRAKE PEDAL EFFORT TO ACHIEVE THE SAME VEHICLE DECELERATION RATE AS PRIOR TO THE SEAT FRACTURE.
Hope this helps ya.
#102 of 762 Belt Squeal? on Z71
Dec 31, 2005 (1:46 pm)
I just bought a 2003 Z71 Tahoe and noticed what sounds like a noisy fan belt on idle. It seems to me that the engine should idle a little quiter. I lubricated the belts, but that didn't help. The belts look like they are good shape. Anyone else have this problem?
#103 of 762 Strange Smell from Exhaust
Jan 03, 2006 (6:58 am)
Hi - I noticed yesterday (and today), while my 2002 Tahoe was idling, it smelled like burning popcorn from the exhaust... almost like a burning cigarette smell. Does anyone know what that could be? I don't recall running over anything, except for a little horse manure in the road yesterday, but it should all have washed away after driving through all the rain puddles today. Thanks for your help!

I experienced a similar problem with a 2004 Avalance Z71 shortly after buying the unit. Took it to my Chevy dealership and asked what they thought that it was. The serice advisor told me that Chevy had sent out a recall, which had to do with the amount of space between the skid plates around the exhaust. They ordered the parts No charge and within a couple of hours, these components were replaced. Have not had a problem since replacement.

Codes are P0300(Multiple Misfires)and P0134(O2 Sensor low or no voltage)
Checked the pre-catalytic conv. O2 sensor and it was black and sooty. Replaced all the plugs and found that 4 on passenger side were fine but ALL 4 on driver side were black and sooty like the O2 sensor. Leads me to believe the mix is too rich on that side. Is this something to do with the fuel rail or some valve that is specific to that side?
