Could be several things .... Do you have a distributor ... Have you ever changed it? There is a pickup coil on it that goes bad tale off dist. Cap and look to see if it has cracks or is broken .... Easier to just buy whole distributor (2) fuel pump try starter fluid to see if it will start by spraying a little in intake...

If you heard a click when you cranked it, that's usually a dead battery. But, you need to check the oil level. I've had 2 RSX's that jumped time because the oil level dropped too low.

The tensioner on the timing chain is hydraulically controlled, if the oil level drops the tensioner looses tension and the chain jumps time. Its an extensive and expensive repair.

SOURCE: Chevy tahoe shuts off when driving

i am on here because of an issue i am currently having with a 2004 tahoe, but after reading some the other problems people are having i will let you in on a previous experience i had with a 2002 chevy truck. my previous vehicle was a 02 chevy 2500hd with the 8.1 and the problem started on day when suddenly it shut off. it did restart with no problem. i never had that problem again until a month later and 1500 miles away when i went to texas to visit my sister. this time it took nearly 30 mins before it would restart. it would crank over fine but no fire. then suddenly out of no where it would fire up like nothing ever happened. so anyways to make a long story short i visited two different gm service centers, they did tune ups and diagnostics, and handed me the bills for over 500 dollars and told me that should do it. yea right the problem continued and then i searched online and one item that kept coming up was the crank position sensor. after reading what those people were dealing with i gave it a shot. went to the dealer bought a new sensor ($99) took an hour to install it and i never had the problem again. one last thing im gonna add. i had a friend that drove a late 90s or early 2000s grad prix, she was having the same problem and had her car in and out of the shop and never got it resolved, i told her to have them check the crank position sensor and bingo, she never had the problem again.

Chevy Tahoe sputters than dies


i would first try to replace the fuel filter.usually there filter accumalates debris in the gas tank especially if you you ru the tank close to empty.filter location needs to be traced from the tank toward the motor.you will see a cylinder inline with a strap.part usually runs around 20.00. also when you initally turn the key before start you will hear a hum for about 2 sec. this is the fuel pump pushing the fuel up to motor.so if you hear this pump is working.

My 1997 chevy tahoe will not start without starting fluid. I hear the fuel pump running and have changed the fuel pressure regulator already and the fuel filter. The pump is only a year old. Have checked...


IVE HAD PLENTY OF THESE GO OUT EVEN A MONTH LATER. AS FAR AS THE STARTING FLUID JUST TRY AND CYCLE KEY BUT KEEP IT FROM TURNING STATER OVER. TURN ON AND OFF ABOUT 3 TO 5 TIMES IT SHOULD BUILD ENOUGH PRESSURE TO START. TO START MINIMUN PRESS IS 55PSI.

1999 chevy tahoe...got spark and fuel but will not start. new coil,new crank sensor, new plugs. still won't start. all fuses are good. randomly it will run for a few days and then it will die. HELP. have...


Well, since it runs for a few days, we'll assume that compression is not an issue. When it dies, it has to be losing either spark, fuel, or air. It must be found out which one before you can find ot why.

I have 95 chevy tahoe when i start it i can go about 2 miles


My suggestion would be to find the ALDL (Assembly Line Data Link) or the DLC (Data Link Connector) . Usually located under the dash and sometimes will have a plastic cover on it saying (Diagnostic Connector) You need to jumper 2 wires together and then turn ignition to on position and the trouble codes are read by a flashing check engine light located in the dash. If you need to info on this subject I would suggest loging on to Autozone.com and enter your make,year and model of vehicle and you will be able to get all kinds of repair info for free. The troubleshooting section is quite impressive and is taken directly from Chiltons manuals. Because basically the problem your encountering could be a number of different things and the last thing you want to do is throw money away on a hit or miss procedure.
