Question about 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

I have a 2003 suburban that has me stumped! I was on the freeway and it lost power (foot on the accelerator and it wouldn't go!), I limped it to an Auto Zone to scan it and it said maf sensor and map sensor and random misfire. I changed both sensors with no positive results. I limped the truck home and since have changed spark plugs, wires, fuel pressure regulator, fuel filter, fuel pump, I have checked the coils, intake manifold gasket, injectors, fuel relay, O2 sensors, catalytic convertors and air filter. Please help!

Hello, Have a look at your Crankshaft and Camshaft sensors. As I remember there was a problem on some Chevies with the Crank sensor and it caused a different problem with the timing. But it probably could cause more problems so its' suspect.

While you did the filter and Regulator for the fuel, did you do a fuel sample? Also some of the ECU's can be refreshed and it is possible that you lost some info in the main computer and just need a reload of the program.

Although you changed the Intake manifold gasket, did you do a Vacuum check or mist the Vacuum lines while the engine ran? You should see if the Vacuum reading is okay. Then see if there is a Vacuum leak somewhere.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. It looks like you spent quite a bit to solve this.

2009 Hyunda Santa Fe stalls while driving


I had a similar problem with my Santa Fe. It occurred intermittently but after I turned the steering wheel to the left. After much screwing around by the dealer and trying to baffle me with BS we heard about a strange solution. I am not a mechanic but the problem somehow related to a spring in the Airbag on the steering wheel. Changed the spring and "Stone the flame'n crows" problem solved. Never had a problem since.

Sounds like the timming belt jumped or broke. A faulty crank sensor could also be at fault.

When asking a question about a problem with your vehicle you should always state your vehicles od reading and engine size, thanks.
