The Chevrolet Tahoe has a powerful V-8, 420 hp, 6.2-liter engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission. However, its fuel economy holds it back from being efficient.
Any problems that may occur with the Chevrolet Tahoe can be solved by a quick glance at the owner’s manual for some DIY repair tips.
A few of the most common problems have to do with the mechanical parts of the car which include:
- The power brake units leaking fuel which can be a concern since that fluid is flammable and can cause a lot of damage to the car’s internals
- The intake manifold gasket leaking coolant or engine oil which can damage several components. These fluids can also mix together and can cause even more damage
- The fuel pump can fail which can cause the engine to stall and not restart even if you try.
The Chevrolet Tahoe (and its rebadged version the GMC Yukon) is a full-size SUV from General Motors. Chevrolet and GMC sold two different-sized SUVs under their Blazer/Jimmy model names through the early 1990s. This situation changed when GMC rebadged the full-size Jimmy as the Yukon in 1991.Chevrolet waited until 1994 to rebadge the redesigned mid-size S-10 Blazer as the Blazer, renaming the full-size Blazer as the Tahoe.
