Question about 2000 Chevrolet Suburban

2000 Suburban turning, backing issues

I have owned this vehicle for 9 months with no problems. Yesterday when I tried to do a "u-ie", it was acting very strange, as if the emergency break was on. It continues to behave this way any any short of sharp turn. It feels like a resistance, hesitance or grinding. I cannot see anything obvious under the vehicle like in the wheel wells. The emergency brake isnt on.
Power Steering fluid ????

Thanks !!

You need to check the power steering fluid, the alignment. Take it into a small service shop and let them put it up on the rack and check all the fluids and align the front end, and see if they can get a clear idea of what is going on. You need to know that the vehicle is safe .

I have a 1993 Chevrolet Suburban The engine (new) has been dragging (at times) when starting for a month or so. Now it will not turn over at all, nothing. The battery is good however it only reads 9 volts...

its a possibility that the alternator is shoot, and you do not have the power to turn engine over to start it. if battery is ok ! then get vehicle started. all accessories off,with it running you should have at least 14.2-14.7 voltage at battery. if you do not have a way to check this. auto-zone will check for free, as well as advanced auto.if all is ok, and the voltage running is less the 14 volts. replace alternator. good-day !

The Reduce Engine Power problem on my 03 Suburban went away when I had to replace the fuel mixing sensor. I damaged the sensor by topping off with E85 (ethanol) by mistake late at night. The vehicle just would not turn on in the morning. The vehicle had to be towed to the dealer. I was in Carlsbad NM about 800 miles from home. I had no choice but to pay $1,100 to get it fixed. At the same time the Reduce Engine Power problem went away. And thanks to God it has not come back for nine 9 months now.

Headlight alignment

I ran into this same issue about 2 months ago. Had to replace the bulb and for the life of me I could not get it back in right. Kept aimed very high and hitting the hood. Had to go in and pay the dealer to fix and aim it. This is the first vehicle I have ever owned where I have been unable to change my own lightbulbs.
