Question about 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Tahoe and noticed that when operating the heater function this morning, the air was cold. When I drove it for a bit, it started to get warm again. Also, noticed the temp. going over normal (back and forth). I checked the coolant in the reservoir and it was low. Filled it up and problem seems to be fixed for now. I noticed no leaks at this time. The water pump was replaced about 3 months ago!!! Is this a known problem with Tahoes that the antifreeze levels go down?? PLease advise on any other things I should look for. Thanks!!

Head gasket leak will act that way when an if it gets bad will smoke white exhaust.will also leak antifreeze into oil so watch oil an frequent oil changes might extend time but will ultimately need new headgasket to avoid damage to engine...think about repairing before damage 2engine.

    Any time you dont have heat coming out of the dash usualy means you are low on coolant. If you are low on coolant you will need to pressure test the coolant system, usualy 13-15 lbs of psi will do the trick. This way you will be able to locate the leak. if you dont see any external leaks then its internal. If you can pull the plugs and drop the oil pan, this will show where the leak is comming from. Most of the time its a head gasket issue. you will need to fix asap or internal damage will happen ( collapsed lifters, spun bearings, thrown rod, ect.) If its not a head gasket then you will need to have the block and heads checked out. The best process is "magnaflux".. This will show if there are any cracks in the blocks. If you just change the gaskets and let it fly without determining the real fault it could cost you a engine later. Take the time and check it out and it will save you lot of money later.

You can check the voltage from the climate controller itself to make sure its sending the proper signal/reference voltage/ ground etc to allow the heater to function properly. I work for AutoEcu1, an automotive electronics rebuilder and supplier and we see a lot of these Climate controllers for this particular vehicle and also a variety of abs ebcm ecu ecm pcm tcu and many other controllers for MANY other vehicles. I hope this info helps. Please let me know if you have any questions or need ANY FORM of assistance just post here or call 800 921 9060.
