You need to replace the tumbler but first you can try a new key if you do not think its the tumbler set key could just be worn but more and likely not .the tumble is shot not too bad to change .

My 2001 chevy suburban feels heavy like it wont shift


check transmission fluid level,could be very low transmission slipping not going into over drive.if been long time change transmission fluid and filter.if transmission fluid filter already been changed other problems cause transmission not to shift could have worn broken need adjusting.governor valve sticking, governor drive gear worn, governor weights or springs missing or damaged. you could have sticking first and second shift valves.your first and second servos pistons seals stuck or damaged. do fluid change and add some high mileage transmission treatment go to any auto parts stores find transmission additive that will loosen up transmission sticking shift valves in the valve body. if your check engine light is on have vechicle code scan for faulty tps in which will cause transmission not to shift over drive.

My 1999 suburban is missfiring on cylinder one, changed new plug, cap & rotor, wires


You seem to have covered almost everything electrical. That leaves mechanical. Either valves sticking, frozen, or spring, cam broken. Fuel line or injector to that cylinder is the only other item I can think of. Let me know how it works for you.

On a 2005 chevy suburban my brake lights will come on after about 4 seconds but not right away. I would assume there is a sensor near the pedal. What do I look for and how do I check it?


the brake light switch is near the brake pedal it should have a wire (or wires) attached to it, it is activated when you push the brake pedal in, they are usually spring loaded & it could be sticking just give it a spray with WD 40 & see if that fixes it, if not it may have to be replaced.........hope this helps.......cheers.

I have a 2004 Chevy Suburban 1500 with 103,000 miles. I am having problems when starting. When the key is turned, the engine will turn over but not start. Turn the key back to off and re-start and the...


Check for power out of the ignition switch. It sounds like the ignition switch is not engaging on the first try and its taking that second turn to get power from the switch to the ECU and so forth. I would replace the switch and possibly the tumbler if the key comes out while the vehicle is running.

TRUCK STARTS OCCASIONALLY, WHEN IT WON'T START I HAVE NO SPARK & NO FUEL INJECT, INTO TBI, REPLACED ECM,USED OLD CHIP, ALSO REPLACED COIL,KNOCK SENSOR,FUEL RELAY,IGNITION SWITCH AND IN TANK FUEL PUMP


I have a '99 suburban and had the same problem. Couldn't figure it out. Took it to the dealer, and it was a engine disable type module. There is a sensor in the ignition switch that "sees" the key (connected to this module), and allows the engine to start/run. Could be the sensor or the module. My problem was the module. Seem to remember costing about $500 with troubleshooting, parts, labor. Good luck.
