2001 Chevy Tahoe - Stalls and restarts while driving

Recently, my Tahoe stalls completely than restarts while driving. On a few occasions, it did not start at all from a dead stop. I had it towed twice and when it gets to the dealer it starts right back up again. Today it stalled at a stop sign and would not start. I pushed it a few feet and it started. When it first happened, the local Chevy dealer diagnosed it as a bad fuel pump and I had it changed. It did not fix the problem. Also, I do not get a Service Engine Soon light, nor does the computer have any error codes stored. About a year ago, I had a problem whereby mice had gotten into my underhood fuse box and had done some damage to the wiring. I had that fixed and that fix seems to be intact. When the car blinks out on me, the battery light flashes on for a few seconds until it restarts. Drove it a few days ago on the highway for two two hour stints without a problem. Today, driving around town it blinked out five times in just an hour. The vehicle has over 200K miles and is otherwise in excellent condition.

Please help!

    You should have told the dealer about the mice that is your problem:)

    Did you ever figure out what caused this because mine is doing the same thing.

2002 Chevy Tahoe sputters and stalls out while driving.....


Fuel filter. Timing/timing chain. Idle air control valve. Idle sensor. Vacuum leak. Probably one of the above, but the filter is cheapest place to start. Change your air filter too, if you haven't for a while.

2002 Chevy Tahoe sputters like it's not getting gas and stalls out while driving. usually starts back up after a few min. mostly only does this when it's hot out


Hello , does the vehical stall out after its been driving a while and the engine has reached operating temp? It may be what's called " vapor" lock. This is where the fuel is burned or evaporated in the fuel lines and the result is not enough fuel is routed to the injector system. Or you have a failing fuel psi regulator too. Thank you , Quinn

03 Chevy Tahoe stalls out while taking a slow


have the a/c compressor checked, the a/c compressor might be locking up due to wear and bad bearings. one way to test is to try turning the compressor clutch while the ENGINE IS OFF, if the clutch is very hard to turn or won't turn at all by hand then the compressor is bad. the clutch is what turns the pully, the pully should spin freely, the compressor clutch is on the end of the compressor on the pully side.

1995 tahoe desiel stalls when driving


I used to live on a farm where we had a number of Chevy diesel's in the 90-98 year range. The 6.2 and 6.5L diesel's in those trucks were known to have problems. A very common problem was with the fuel injection pump going bad, causing the engine to intermittently stall for apparently no reason during driving.

Whenever my tahoe is idling or im going less than 15 mph it keeps trying to die


Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
