1997 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Problems

Power Door Lock Actuators May Fail

The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.

ABS Warning Light On and/or Erratic ABS Operation

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

Intake Manifold Gasket May Leak Coolant or Engine Oil

The intake manifold gasket may develop an external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.
