Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #2

May 222014

Tahoe LT 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,000 miles


Very annoying not having air. When its starts it sounds and feels like something is going to blow up and then quits. Eventually the belt breaks and or the tensioner breaks. This is a known problem because at the dealership they told me why this is happening and what to try to see if it helps.

This problem was a pain in the ass. The problem seemed to only occur when I would put the engine under stress (like accelerating) while running the air conditioner and then later on, whenever I would start the A/C. I would hear a screeching sound, not like a belt screeching, more like something was loose in the engine.
