2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 122004

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Why does the manual state that one can pull up to 8700lbs. If the Tahoe can barely handle 3500lbs? the springs have been replaced twice the manifold is cracked the fuel pump went out, the universal joint is going out, the transfer case is leaking and has only been used twice in 3 years, and has already been repaired once last year, the steering pump is going out, these are only the problems I can think of.

problem #2

Feb 152003

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,500 miles
Immediately after application of the anti-loch brakes at low speeds in 2 wheel high mode, the vehicle seems to "lock up" the wheels as if it were in 4 wheel drive. We get severe wheel hop and when we stop the vehicle, then restart it there is a very loud clunking sound. After that the vehicle preforms normally. The problem also goes away if the vehicle is turned off. The vehicle goes into 4 wheel auto, 4 wheel low and 2 wheel high normally at all other times. Again, the problem only happens when the antilock brakes are activated at low speeds (no problem from high speed stops) and it has happened twice in the past 5 minths.

There seems to be a problem with my transfer case for the 4 wheel drive. 4 wheel drive does not want to engage when it is pressed.
