  2. 97 Tahoe - driver's side blinker and brake light doesn't work

    The title pretty much explains it. The driver's side blinker and brake lights don't work. The back up light works just fine. And, the center mounted brake light and everything on the passenger side...

    I just had the intake gaskets replaced on my 97 and the shadetree mechanic who I hired had a heck of a time getting the truck to run right after it was all reassmbled. It just ran like absolute crap...

    My daily driver is a 2004 Civic. My wife's daily driver is the 97 Tahoe.

    The only thing I'll drive is a GM 3800, 5.7, or anything by Honda. You simply can't find better reliability out of those...

    When we first bought our 97, we figured it would be just a local beater to get by. But we're now really enjoying the truck and hope to keep it around for a long time. It does have 217,000 and needs...

    I'm having a VERY similar issue with my 97 (see my "Occassional Surging" topic). I thought my issues stemed from a bad EGR valve, but that didn't correct it.

    I removed the EGR valve Thursday of last week and found the plunger to be completely inoperable. It was jammed closed and wouldn't move even with a slight tap of a hammer and screw driver. So, I...

    If I were the original owner the rust wouldn't be this bad. But, seeing how I'm the fourth owner after 12 years there's not much I can do. It's just too far gone for me to even try restoring it.

    I was able to get my scanner to connect to the PCM through the OBD port. The culprit was a blown fuse in port 13 of the fuse bank.

    The stored code is 1406. Based on what I'm reading, that's...

    It sounds like the OBD port is powered from the same fuse which powers the cig lighter. I'll check that fuse...

    My 1997 Tahoe with 216,000 runs at ~41 lbs PSI hot and ~55 lbs cold based on the dash guage, if that helps...

    Never hooked up a mechanical guage to it.

    Occassional surging

    I'm getting a surging out of our 1997 Tahoe.

    It's not constant and seems to come and go with engine temps. Basically, when the engine is hot you can feel the truck "lurching" under any...

    Longevity of the 350

    It seems to be pretty common knowledge that the 350 is a strong motor, but just how strong is it?

    We have 215,000 on our Tahoe and it runs really well. Burns some oil, has a bad rear main seal,...

    I do have the G80 RPO code and have no reason to believe the rear end has ever been swapped out. But it sounds like I don't need the additive anyway.
