2007 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #10

May 122012

Tahoe 8-cyl

  • 107,563 miles


The fuel gauge was reading 1/4 tank and suddenly the gauge went to empty and the driving distant went blank. After a short time the gauge read 3/4 tank, then went off again, then reset itself to 1/2 tank. This has happened quite frequently since then. It only happens once the fuel level gets less than 3/8 of a tank.

The monitor or sensor of the car was not detecting if the vehicle is functioning accurately. It is not detecting the pressure of the tire. So we went back to the dealership particularly to salesperson who sold us the car. He said, it does it sometimes. When we are fillin in its gas tank, it shuts off the gas nozzle after a gallon or two, which is actually strange, so we told the dealership again about it, they said it's probably the gas station. We talk to the gas station attendants, they always say they are not shutting the gas nozzle off. We occasionally hear its creaking sound when we drive it, and when we told the dealership again about it, they said it is just because it doesn't use a brake pad that's why. The steering wheel also sometimes make noise when turning, but their comment is unable to verify the cause at this time. I contacted their customer service about the issues we have with the car even the service manager didn't like it, and until now they still can't do anything to help us out. They said our warranty has already expired, but why they didn't fixed them when we first came to them a few days after we bought it. The car is just 23,000 miles though it's a 2007 model, because we can't use it all the time. We are not that confident to bring it all the time and put our children in it. Right now the engine light is on, I have renewed its registration already, but we can't drive it on the road hoping that the manufacturer will do some corrections with the car, but they said they can't because the warranty already expired. We know it's not going to pass the emission test because its engine light is on. We've been telling them about the issues but they are not paying attention, even it's still under warranty and just waiting for the warranty to expire so they will have no further obligation to us.

I have an 07 Tahoe and have read from other people that this is happening to alot of others as well. I had my truck inspected at the Chevy dealer in lake elsinore. They said it could be a number of things and thought that cleaning my intake system would fix the problem. It was fine for one day then out of nowhere driving on the freeway my stability trac light comes on and the check engine light and says reduced engine power. I had my wife and kids in the truck and find it funny that I guess this has happened to others with different vehicles but the same year GMC Yukon. I had the same problem as one and they were near semi trucks. This is not good even worse when you are no longer under the warranty and the dealer can't tell you exactly what it is but wants to try everything. That is wrong. This is dangerous to have happen and even worse when the dealer wants to say they are not exactly sure but find out from reading about others vehicles like mine with the same problem and no help.

2007 Chevrolet Tahoe shows check engine light and gas gauge goes crazy, bouncing from empty to full and sometimes landing on a random reading. When gas gauge is not functioning properly, vehicle shows low fuel, even after filling up the truck. Sometimes after filling up, the problem "resolves" itself - but other times, the gauge is still unreliable. This is a well-known problem for these vehicles and can be a safety issues should one run out of gas in busy traffic or in an unsafe area.

The gas gauge in my 2007 Chevy Tahoe has drastic fluctuations and mis-readings. I can get in the truck, start it and the gauge may read 1/4-1/2 full and the estimated gas range may say 130 miles. I can then turn the truck off, restart it, and the reading sometimes goes down to empty and I'll get a "low fuel" warning. This seems to happen very regularly, but most often when the tank is around 1/4 full (or supposed to be 1/4 full). This creates situations on the highway where I think I've got plenty of time and mileage before having to find a gas station. If I stop at a rest stop and resume travel, my reading may suddenly go to low fuel or very low fuel status, in the middle of no-where. My son in law has a similar vehicle (2007, Cadillac escalade) built on the same chassis and experiences the same issue, so I'm wondering if there is a product defect at hand. Please help.

The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. While parked in the garage, the vehicle suddenly caught fire. The fire department investigated and stated that the fire originated from underneath the hood. They also advised her to not move the vehicle until it has been inspected by the dealer. A police report was filed and two people sustained injuries. She believes the fuel pump caused the failure because the explosion was very large. The VIN, engine size, and number of cylinders were unknown. The current and failure mileages were 11,700.
