Tahoe Hybrid

  • 124,000 miles


When driving around and at a stop light the engine will go into auto stop. When applying pressure to gas pedal the vehicle will hesitate and then lurch forward. Vehicle will also get a high idle between 1500 RPM and 2200 RPM and fluctuate between those rpms. Also when idling below 1,000 rpms the engine will rev up and down as if pressure is being applied to the gas pedal but there is no pressure being applied at all. Been having this issue for quite sometime and I figured it was just some bad fuel but it has been consistent. Also have no lights illuminated on the dash, no check engine lights or anything. I haven't taken to dealer yet because I am waiting on the supplies for the air bag recall so they can work on the vehicle while replacing the air bag.

Tahoe Hybrid 8-cyl

  • 88,000 miles
When started (usually the second time of the day after being driven to work and then having sat all day) the vehicle coughs and runs rough for a second. Then the throttle does not respond to input for a variable period of time. When it does respond it may respond to previous input causing unanticipated acceleration. I have had to use both feet on the brake to avoid a crash. Throws no codes. Dealer says they cannot diagnose it although they have reproduced it. In addition, an independent shop says that on start/restart there is a grinding noise in the starter/transmission (the electric motor in the transmission is used as a starter). Dealer denies hearing this although the independent says it happens every time.
