    Actually what I ended up doing this past summer was installing a Flex Fuel Replicator Sensor. This sensor by-passes the OEM sensor and will work only on regular unleaded fuel. The sensor was only $150 and my mileage has also improved.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY http://www.pointaengineering.com/main.sc Because they are a fraudulent company! The sensor they provide does absolutly nothing. I tried it and nothing changed in the way my vehicle ran.

Buy the OE Flex Fuel Sensor on Ebay. There are people listing Original Equipment units by the same manufacturer who supplies GM. Their price is hundreds less than the dealer. Check it out. I bought one for my Chevy Sonoma. This part fits the 2003 Yukon too.

SOURCE: Which side is bank 2 on 04 yukon for sensor 2 replacement

if you look at the front of the motor you will notice one cyclinder is further forward then the other... that first cyclinder would be 1. i'm guessing the side opposite to cyclinder one would be bank two.

SOURCE: 2003 GMC Yukon - fuel pump

Check your ECM fuse. There should be 2 fuses for your ECM. It's the ECM that controls the function of the fuel pump. Good luck friend and it's also common for the wire harness from the frame to the fuel pump to go bad due to corrosion from the bad weather we get in the winter and rainy spring and fall.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Yukon,

You've triggered the anti theft security system. You will have to take it t a dealership to have the system reset so your engine will start. Regardless of what you've been told about clearing the computer codes, taking the positive cable loose is not the way to go. All you have to do is pull the fuse or fuses that go to the ecm or engine computer. That way, you don't mess wit the security system. Your radio may be locked down too. If it is, you'll have to go through a lengthy process to get the code to unlock it.

Could a po178 code cause repeated fuel pump failure on a 2003 chevy tahoe?


No that is a Flex fuel sensor that detects the amount of Alcohol in the fuel and signals the powertrain computer to make changes to accommodate the fuel to the engine controls system. Here are common causes of early failure. 1.Did you replace the connector to the fuel pump? They sell a repair connector, it must be replaced anytime the pump is replaced or early pump failure will occur, the new connector must be soldered on and shrink tubed, no quick crimps should ever be used.. 2. Are you running the fuel down to or below 1/8 tank? This severely overheats the pump and causes early failure.. And lastly what is the average miles you are getting out of the new pumps?

2003 yukon xl 5.3 motor flex fuel wont start with a 1/4 tank of gas. If you put a gallon in then it will. Is there a sensor that could be bad? I put a filter on it and it helped the first time then it did...


seems like you have a bad connection inside the tank at the fuel pump and it requires the gas to be at a higher level because its using the gas as a conductor to make the connection, i recommend you replace the fuel pump.

2003 yukon cold start problem


alternator needs tested (scoped ) for any dirty power (spikes)...that simple test will eliminate soo many electrical gremlins i cant stress it enough.....causing bad floating grounds and computer misreads of sensitive sensors without tripping codes ... replace alternator if suspicious and watch your other seemingly unrelated issues disappear :)......i know i know i am using a crystal ball here tonight and going out on a limb about this one .... but humor me and test alternator before investing too much other time and money :) good luck

If your flex fuel sensor is bad there is a product on the market that is a much better alternative compared to purchasing a new sensor for over $600 or even a used one for typically around $300. The product is called a Flex Fuel Sensor Replicator made by T&S Electronics and can be purchased off their website www.tandselectronics.com. The cost of the Replicator is $150 and it is very simple to install. In fact, your old flex fuel sensor stays in place so you don't have to mess with your fuel line. The wiring from the original flex fuel sensor is hooked up to the Replicator which sends an electronic signal to your engine control unit that "replicates" the signal the ECU would get from the original FFS when you are burning standard unleaded gasoline containing up to 10% ethenol.

The only limitation present with the Replicator installed is that you can no longer burn E85 or other alternate fuels (no big deal for most people). And, as an advantage you should see a 1-2 mpg improvement with the Replicator installed.
