Question about 2002 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

I have a 1995 Chevy suburban, and I'm trying to figure out why is it when we go to start the truck it churn and churns, so then we dump a cap full of gas in where breather is before it actually kicks off. Full pump is working, I see the gas going through as the ignition is turned on, and fuel filter has been changed. Help

Have you checked your cold-start injector? these injectors will just deliever one "squirt" of gas into the intake when starting the vehicle - much like your cap of gas down the breather does...

Power steering tank full but still turning hard. 2001 chevy venture. Any ideas

With engine running, steering turned hard right or left, can you see the fluid churn in the power steering reservoir? If not, maybe one of the power steering lines is blocked?

I just wanted to add, with some makes and models. With everything off, I remove the power steering belt. I take the return line loose from pump, aim into container, rotate the pulley by hand, see if any fluid comes out of return line? The return line should be low pressure, usually held to pump by hose clamp. The high pressure line has threaded fittings.

96 chevy s10 4300 vortec oil overfilled to 8 qts now evap light on

You need to drain oil out the drain plug till it's at the proper level. Engine damage could result from being overfull-the crankshaft will be churning the oil in the crankcase around-if it starts foaming, you will lose oil pressure. Engine could seize from lack of oil pressure.

Replaced rear brake lines and bled all lines pedal still spongy sounds like air in master cylinder

Try opening the bleeders and don't pump the pedal,just let gravity flow out the fluid,(master cyl.cap off)keeps the air from being churned into foam. Also try appling the E-brake and see if the pedal feels better,if it does it's just the rear being out of adjustment

White smoke means you're vaporizing water. It could be a culmination of things.

1. You've got coolant leaking through your headgasket
2. You've managed to get water in your exhaust through condensation or rain.

When you say it doesn't start what to you mean? It just churns and churns or it doesn't crank.

If it's not cranking at all you may have hydrolocked the engine or simple have a dead battery. Parking down slope can causes water to run into the engine bay. Usually your rubber liners will channel water away from critical components but you do have your major electrical and ECU located in the top left portion of your engine bay. This sits right next tot he windshield and having heavy rains with your car parked down slope will channel alot of water into this area.

Was your passenger footwell damp? The ECU has a firewall gromet that runs to the passenger footwell. Water may drain through this point if it manages to make it's way into the cavity of the ecu bay.

all in all, let the car dry out, give it a go again. Keep your senses at peak, listen for odd sounds, try to get a whiff of that white smoke, check for coolant odor and be prepared to stop if something isn't right. Don't risk a major problem just because you don't want to give up trying to identify a smaller one. It just gets more expensive.

Hope this help.
