Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

Open Question

I have a 2007 chevy tahoe that the check engine light is on. The first time it came on I sprayed the intake with B12 to remove the carbon build up. It went off. Its now on and I tried the same thing. It didn't work. I went to auto zone and got a list of codes and its telling me about a purge or vent solenoids defective; fuel saturated vapor canister; failed EVAP vent solenoid. All this came from the same code. Whats wrong?

SOURCE: the solenoids and system wiringare monitored for opens or shorts

The only thing that can cause a saturated vapor canister is over filling the fuel tank.,

SOURCE: Mustang GT 4.6 EVAP Canister Purge Valve Location?

You will need to remove the right front wheel & wheel well liner. The canister purge valve is behind the cover. It should have two tube going into the bottom and one on the side near the top.
You can fix it!
If this helps you out please rate me!

***IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU MUST READ*****

Ok everyone, listen up....If you have a 04 and newer silverado, with a failed evap vent solenoid, you have to read this info. Do not pay $100+ for this part(actually $150.00 at the dealer). The following part numbers associated with this part have been gm#19207763,19152349, and AC DELCO #'s 214-2082 costing over $100.00 for the modified part. This is for the modified part, with the relocation of the filterbox, and the added hose that seperates the two. No one at Gm will tell you this, but this same part, that was origionally on your silverado, is also used in the 2006 Suburban. It will be an identical replacement for what is ON YOUR TRUCK, and the cost is $24.04 AT THE DEALER. I know this because I own a 2006 silverado, and a 2006 suburban. Looked at the suburban when the part went bad on the silverado(from overfilling the tank)and bingo, same part. Ask a parts person at GM, and they will tell you otherwise, but they are lying to you. Bought the suburban part today part # 25932571 (GM #) and everything is identical, right down to the numbers stamped on the part itself. Took the part off my silverado, put the replacement on (which gm told me is not the right part), cleared the codes, and bingo no more light after 3 consecutive starts...... Why, is it that GM feels we need to pay the price for something they did wrong???? And moreso, lie to us, telling us the $150.00 part is our only choice to fix the problem. My truck went 40K miles with the origional part, and probably only went bad because of my own stupidity in overfilling the tank, whay would I not just want to spend $24.00 to put on the same part, that will probably go the rest of the life of the truck with no tank overfills???? I say CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS BEEN SCAMMED INTO PAYING THE RIDICULOUS PRICE that GM is trying to **** out of us.....Please pass this on to the world, and every forum you can...Get the word out....Let the parts people at GM know we are on to their BS, and they can't take advantage of us like they have.....

SOURCE: 06 Colorado wont start at times

there is a faulty switch in the steering wheel column. My truck did the same thing. Next time check to see if the security light flashes next time it doesn't start. the time delay is more like 10 min.

2000 chevy silverado starts then stalls out


Check the throttle body for heavy carbon build-up. Remove the air intake(plastic big tube going to the front top of the engine by loosening the big clamp with a screw driver). Gently open the throttle blade and look for heavy black sooty looking deposits. Using throttle plate cleaner from the parts store spray it down and then use a rag to scrub it out, rinsing with the throttle plate cleaner till its all gone. This is a common issue with these trucks, and alot of other vehicles also.

License plate light will not stay on this for a 2007 chevy tahoe,what do i have to disassemble to check wiring


Hello,

If you notice should be a couple small screws to remove lens to get to bulb. A lot of times it just a loose bulb or the prongs on end of bulb that hits the copper connection. First take bulb out, replace it, even though it works, but new one would have nice new connection, and before putting it in, spray inside where bulb goes with electrical cleaner can get at any auto supply, then put in. Should work. On a 2007, it is unlikely there is a ground problem, but if so, after trying this, get back to me and I will tell you how to check wires and what to do. Thanks Mike

Wont start when warm without pumpin gas, and engine revving to high


A high rev problem is due to either carbon build up in the iac passage's not letting the iac close to normal idle or the iac is just bad and stuck in that position.

iac= idle air control solenoid

Inside the throttle body intake is a butterfly and just above that is a small opening that the iac uses to move air past the butterfly and this sometimes gets plugged with carbon build up so spray some carb cleaner down through the passage,and sometimes you have to remove the 4 bolts and take the throttle body off to clean them out.

Saturns are known for carbon problems,and they are hard on egr systems,I recommend using sea foam a couple times a year to help fight the carbon build up,just follow the direction and use it in the fuel and vaccum lines as directed but do it on a warm engine and let sit for a couple hours so the sea foam has time to loosen the carbon

I have a 1994 chevy k1500 preignition knock


open the intake manifold by removing the air cleaner and or hose look on the back side of the plate to see if there is varnish and gum if there is you need to do a top engine clean, You must understand that running that kind of gas will cause varnish and carbon buildup on the pistons and valves. This causes the knock sensor to not to be able to adjust for compression change. It can only advance the timing 50% once the carbon build up is to much it will start knocking. If you want to receive instructions on how to fix this then rate me post a comment and I will give you the two page answer on how to do this. Unless you want to keep buying parts. your choice. I will no longer post it here as I see some think they can just take my answers and copy them.
