1996 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1996 Chevrolet Suburban 2500

Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.

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.

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

for about a week now my car has been idling really rough shaking really bad and then we go to press on the gas pedal to take off is Start like sputtering or puttering

It will run in 3 but it seems to stuggle. If you start out in overdrive it goes through the gears until it is ready to shift into Overdrive and then just doesn't!

Runs great for a week or more; then bouts of stalling less than a mile from house. Fuel pump is ok. What part of ECM system would be so temperamental and have enough power to blow fuses. If I let it sit; odds are I can drive it 100 miles or more before it starts blowing fuses again.
