    go to crutchfield and search for 6.5 inch speakers for the 02 Tahoe. I got the Polks and it takes about 10 min to put them in the front doors.
  • i have 49k ,injectors cleaned 10k ago and fuel filter replaced 9 months ago. battery voltage 12.9V, other than putting a diag on it, is there anything else i can check. how many fuel filters are on this truck? by the way when the rough idle occurs RPMs fluctuate 300-700.

    I have a 2000 Saturn SL-1 that had the exact same problem. I am in the process of moving right now so I don't have my Tahoe service manuals handy, but with the Saturn it turned out to be the EVAP system and a plugged charcoal canister. On a Saturn the canister is mounted to the top of the fuel tank and in order to change it the tank had to be dropped. When the canister got plugged, it would not allow the displaced air from the tank to exit the top of the tank when refuelling. The charcoal "scrubbed" the fuel vapors coming out of the tank and allowed them to be released as clean air to the atmosphere via a vent solenoid. The Tahoe may or may not use a similar system

    Now I dont know what to do...............3.42 or 3.73

    Find the one you like and go with either rear axle. If you don't tow more than 3500lbs it won't matter enough to worry about. If you plan to ever tow more than 3500lbs, I would go with the 3.73.

    No towing to speak of, just hauling around all my stuff in the back. Thanks Jim!
  • In the process of purchasing a 2007 Tahoe LT for my wife. Where do i start in regards to an offer? $500.00 over invoice?

    I went from an '03 Avalanche with 3.73's to an '05 with 3.42's. Performance-wise I don't see too much difference in acceleration, but it does tend to shift down more on inclines. Around town mpg is not much different. I took my first highway trip of any length (just over 100mi)over the weekend and the DIC read 22+ mpg when I got home. Based on previous fillups I probably did get over 21. And while it was mostly highway it was not sustained cruising with the cruise control on. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can get on my next trip to Ft. Worth and back, probably in June. As previously mentioned, I think the city MPG with sprited take-offs will be LOWER with the 3.42' but driven economically, and highway cruising, they will do better than the 3.73's. BTW, I do not tow and rarely haul anything more than a suitcase in the bed. I would not consider the 3.42's if I towed a trailer.
  • I am trying to find out the name of the plastic part that is above the tail lights on Tahoe's. The corner peice that has vents in it. If anybody knows please help. Also if anyone has one for a 97 tahoe passenger side for sale let me know. Thanx

    In some cases the 3.73 might be a better performer. If you drive in some hilly areas, the 3.42 will tend to downshift quicker to maintain highway speed. We have a 2004 Envoy XL with the 3.42. Driving 70-75 with cruse set, moderate hill can cause it to downshift twice to maintain speed. Doing 70+ in second gear does not help the MPGs out at all. I would expect the 3.73 to do better over similar terrain.
  • Anyone, I'm looking to add a cold air intake to my 03' z71 T-hoe; Will it save gas or vice versa?

    Has anyone with a new 07' Tahoe had any poroblems with the 2nd row bench seat? I am having a hard time getting the seatback up once I fold back down the seat. It seems to work better when I slam the seat back down in place but still does not work all the time. I have to put the seat up and down a few times before it allows me to fold the seatback up to its normal position. I don't seem to have any problems with the bucket seats however. Any solutions or known problems out there?? Thanks in advance!

    It not save any nor use any more gas than you're using now. It will not produce noticeable power. It will produce a whooshing sound if that's what you like. It will also allow more contaminants into the throttle body.

    Just in case your still having issues with your steering. ( Hopefully Not ) There should be a Chevrolet Bulletin on this issue. I had part of the steering mechanism replaced for the same problem back in 03 .. You could feel a light rattling right throught the steering wheel which was pronounced at higher speeds while turning . After repacking the steering shaft several times to no avail they finally replaced the part under warranty.

    Good Luck
  • I'm looking to add a little "uummph!" to my 03' T-ho. I want dual pipes. Any recommendations on what product I should buy? Flowmaster, Borla etc.... Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  • It all depends on how much you want to spend with Borla being the more expensive choice. I have dual flowmasters on my 97 Tahoe, and it sounds very deep and powerful, with a throttle body spacer added also. I am waxing all other Tahoe's in my area. I suggest The Flows.
  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,065
    One aftermarket exhaust with GM approval....Corsa. If you think Borla is expensive well you might not want to look at this page.

    Most exhaust shops around here sell flows cheap ($2-300) installed. If I had a Dodge I'd prolly go that route.

    Unless you plan to redo your entire exhaust system you won't be getting true duals as for the Tahoe it would be a 2-1-2 so duals only in the sense of cosmetics.

    Good luck

    BTW, I found a three week old Corsa on ebay for $350 for my Denali. Guy had just installed and removed when deciding to sell his Denali. I can see why it is GM approved. Mellow at idle and awe inspiring under full throttle. Also, polished stainless steel end to end.

    I was surprised to find that my new 2005 Tahoe LS didn't have a locking gas cap. Is this true for all 2005 Tahoes? Has anyone purchased an aftermarket locking cap? Thanks.
  • jlflemmonsjlflemmons Posts: 2,240
    I didn't know any Yukon/Tahoe had locking caps?
