problem #6

Feb 012005

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 114,000 miles
The consumer stated that the vehicle stalled, and the fuel gauge did not work properly. While sitting at a stop sign the vehicle stalled. This happened only once. The fuel gage had not been working properly for about eight months. NHTSA recall campaign# 05V155000 concerning fuel pump failure was issued. The aforementioned symptoms were typical for faulty fuel pump wiring. The vehicle had not been inspected by the dealer. The consumer made contact by phone with both the dealer and manufacturer in an attempt to obtain recall repairs. The consumer's request was denied because this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN. (12/02/05)

The contact stated the fuel pump short circuited inside the fuel tank while driving at 70 mph and it lost power. He managed to pull the vehicle off the road without any power steering or power brakes. He found the fuse tha blew out and changed it. He was able to drive the vehicle home. Took the vehicle to a certified mechanic, the fuel pump was replaced at contact's cost. He contacted the manufacturer, and there was recall, but did not include this year, make and model.

After fueling vehicle and driving short distance, then parking on front-end-down slope, a large amount of fuel (apx 1 gallon) began dripping on ground from top of fuel tank. I turned vehicle around so front of tank was higher than rear of tank and dripping slowed and stopped. Mechanic said fuel pump assembly on top of fuel tank was leaking. Mechanic now in process of replacing fuel pump, and will give me old pump. Mehcanic said possible cause that he has seen before is due to corrosion, however, vehicle has been operated at all times in arid, dry desert temperature that is not conducive to vehicle corrosion.

Tahoe 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles
Whilst driving home from upstate NY to my home in NJ, the fuel pump on my Chevrolet Tahoe failed suddenly and catastrophically. I was driving at 65 mph at the time and with the failure of the pump, I lost all power, including steering and brakes. I very narrowly avoided an accident and other traffic. This was very scary and trying to steer and brake without power is not easy. This is the 3rd time that a fuel pump has failed on a Tahoe owned by myself, although the other 2 times the failure was while parked and not at high speed. My current car has 72,000 miles. The previous incidents were at approx the same mileage. Is this normal" have any other accidents been caused by sudden and catastrophic failure of Tahoe fuel pumps"

I have had the ps pump, steering gear box, fuel pump, 4WD switch, and all rotors/ brakes replaced. My sunroof rubber seal had to be replaced. All my work has been done by a GM dealership from North Carolina, mo & wa. My vehicle has never been off road, it is more for looks. But I am not pleased with this $38,000 maintenance trap. I have all documented work and services.
