1999 chevy tahoe flashing check engine light and noise

This morning I started my tahoe and it made a clunky noise which it has done in the past, and I after I drove it for a few miles the noise would go away and run normal. This time however after I got over 30mph, the check engine light started flashing. Most recently my CEL would come on if i was driving around town but would go off if I drove on the freeway. I also must add a quart of oil about every two weeks along with fill up my coolant reservoir tank every fee days. How bad our may problems

Chevy Tahoe fuel system


Two things:

First, are you aware that your vehicle will only have power to the fuel pump for about 2 or 3 SECONDS before engine start-up? Then the engine must be running for it to have any power beyond that?

Second, is the "Security" light flashing on your dash? If so, you have a security system problem. There won't be any power to the fuel pump.

1999 chevy Tahoe wont start but turns over


Your fuel pressure can be checked by connecting a fuel test gauge up to fuel test port which will be located on the fuel rail at the back of the engine on drivers side next to the distributor.Your fuel pressure should be 60-66 psi with key on engine off.If its not within these specs then replace the fuel pump and filter.

I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months


without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

I went out to use my 2003 chevy tahoe this morning and there is no power at all. I put a battery charger on it, but there is still no power getting through. I swapped out the ignition fuse and it didn't...


Check the connections on the battery and where they connect to the engine/starter. Do you get any inside lights at all?
Check the voltage on the battery - should be 12 volts (engine off)

1999 chevy tahoe 5.7 wont start in the am without starting fluid but as long as you start it every 1/2 hr or so it starts fine. runs good once started any suggestions?


check fuel pressure. If its marginal then replace the pump. These trucks are touchy on fuel pressure. Just a couple psi low and they do exactly this. In the morning cold is when you need max fuel. Be sure to replace the harness also as these tend to lead to repeated pump failures when faulty, which is pretty common

Crackling noise from transfer case


What you may be hearing is the wheel bearings instead of the transfer case. I had this problem with GM before and found it to be the wheel bearing was bad. I know it is not what you think, but it would be an easy thing to check first.

1999 Chevy Tahoe won't Start. Motor will not turn over.


I'm assuming that by turning over, you mean that the engine fails to turn with the starter . Check your battery for 12v and make sure all connections are clean and secure. If battery has less than 12v charge it and check the charging system after re-starting. Lights and radio do not pull the same amperage as the starter and may not tell you much about battery condition. If you have full battery voltage, check the starter for 12v at the battery connection and the small (trigger wire) for 12v with the key turned to start position. If you have both, likely starter has failed.

Check engine light is on, motor runs rough, sometimes stalls


Go to Advance or Auto Zone and have them run an obd scan on it and it will pin point why your light is on and could solve your problem. This is often done for free.
