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?
#106 of 762 2005 Tahoe Z71 4X4 - transmission whine
Jan 19, 2006 (11:39 am)
My new Tahoe begins to whine at about 40-45 miles per hour. GM has advised that they do not have a fix for it at this time but will call if and when they have a fix. Do other people have this same problem? Is it common to all 2005 Z71 4X4 Tahoe's?
#107 of 762 Theft-deterrent Radio Lock
Jan 24, 2006 (11:11 am)
Battery died (left dome light on or something) so had to jump start. Now the radio is locked thanks to the theft deterrent system. Have a 99 Tahoe and I don't believe I ever set or changed the passcode. Called the dealer and they said I had to bring it in so they could get the numbers off the radio, call AC Delco to get the password.
You would think there would be a default password if I as the consumer never set a passcode?
Any way around this or am I stuck taking the Tahoe in?

I have read somewhere that there was a known problem with the earlier 200 models having a piston clunking problem, but his was fixed in the later models.

I had the same problem on my 03 Z71, dealer claims to have replaced the intermediate steering shaft. Truck was still under warranty. Clunk is gone and no more feedback in the steering wheel.
