You might have a bad or torn motor, or transmission mount, allowing your engine and transmission to shift under acceleration.

Check for broken motor or transmission mounts. If it's moving that much, the shifter may be hitting the underbody and bumping out of gear. To check, have someone step on the brakes and shift back and forth from drive to reverse while you watch the engine move. If they carefully give it a little gas, you'll be able to see where the engine is separating from it's mounts.

Hi, I have a Chevy TAhoe 2007 LS, 5.3 liter, 350 BHP, V8 vortec. Its a fantastic car. However fuel is getting horribly expensive where i live and i was wondering if there is a way to re-program the chevy...


Considering the size and weight of the Tahoe, running on 4 cylinders would be less fuel efficient then running on all 8. Its like having one horse pull a cart instead of two, sure it takes more hay to feed two horses but combine they work a lot less to get the job done. I can't image running a Tahoe on a 4cyl engine, the acceleration would take donkeys years to get up to speed, it would be struggling and working its guts out to get anywhere with that minimal horsepower. I think your best bet, dump the Tahoe and get something smaller and more efficient. Owning a SUV these days is like owning a very hungry horse, it needs to be fed if you want to use it. If you can't afford the fuel its using its time to put it to pasture and get something else! The 5.3L is a gas guzzler, just how it is, i haven't seen one yet that did better then 15-18mpg on the highway, and thats usually at the top of their range under ideal conditions. Your probably better off with something smaller with a V6 or even an inline 4. But your not going to fix your issues by crippling the Tahoe.

Replace belt on Chevy S10 pickup


Put a 15mm wrench on the tensionor pulley center bolt, release tension and hold, remove belt. Tensionor is spring loaded and should move freely with a fairly good amount of tension so be carefull not to pinch fingers and make sure to use the boxed end of the wrench, keep it squarely and fully seated on the bolt at all times.
