Question about Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

My 03 Tahoe dies on me while driving. I have had the fuel filter changed and thermostat changed. Sometimes it will start immediatly after, other times I have to wait 5-10 minutes. When I try to start the Tahoe, it seems like it wants to stay on, but then dies.

If it dies with your foot on the gas cruising you prabably have a bad fuel pump or maybe a bad relay if its a fuel issue.. Your symptoms are common for defective pump. This is an expensive job to do. Get a dealer part. Toooo many times we get defective aftermarket pumps and have to do the job twice if not more. Chevy's are real critical on what the fuel pressure should be.

thats what it sounds like, a bad or clogged up fuel filter. if it bogs down when giving it gas, or going up a hill. its probably the fuel filter not letting enough fuel to engine. that is why it stalls at a stop. if this helps but not fully. check or clean idle air control motor. this is what maintains proper idle of vehicle. have a good day !!

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.

I have a 2001 chevy tahoe wont start


could be as simple as a dirty fuel filter. or maybe the fuel pump has died..i will go with the fuel filter since you were able to get it started again.. also when replacing your fuel filter you should go ahead and get new plugs and wires.. a small tune up wouldnt hurt and would only set you back 100.00 dollers maybe.. hope this helps
