Question about 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

2004 chevy tahoe is shutting off at idle.

Well my problem developed over the weekend. its a 2004 tahoe 5.6 v8 4 wheel drive. i went out to breakfast and when i got back in the truck to leave i noticed my engine light was on for the first time. it drove fine all the way home and so what i did was unhook the battery for an hour to possibly reset the codes or computer and that did work the light was no longer on. The following day i was running some errands when all of a sudden the truck shut off as i was pulling into a parking space. the engine light however is not on again but now i am seeing there is a problem. the truck shut off another 3 or 4 times before i made it home, usually while i was stopped at a light or cruising slow at idle. i have about 80k miles on it, any suggestions???

the noise could be from wheel bearings or from the engine (alternator, power steering or water pump)

Speed sensor for the ABS system or for the speedometer?

If the speedometer and it is four wheel drive than the speed sensor will be in the rear housing of the transfer case.

I have a 2004 Chevy Tahoe. I read the dipstick and it stated it was at the 1 quart line. It normally takes 5 quarts. I added 1 3/4 quarts of oil and It looks like it is a tad over the 5 quart mark. Is this... is fine....nothing to worry about....

Start your engine, run it for 3-5 minutes at idle....shut it off....take another reading. If it is at the same makr....just over 5, you are alright. That is not enough to cause engine problems or leaks (blown seal).
