2001 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Problems

Brakes -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.

Engine -- Verified

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.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.

Maintenance -- Verified

Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every 60,000 miles.  Brake fluid that is dirty may cause problems in the brake system.

2001 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Reviews

My wife and I just bought our 2001 Suburban 2500 with only 89,000 miles on it. For one we got a great deal, and two this vehicle is by far the nicest and most comfortable vehicle we've ever owned. The second row bucket seats make it so much easier for our kids to get in and the leather is great. I've always been a fan of the 6.0 Liter engine and ours came with a polished K&N Intake kit too! The engine is MORE than capable of making the beast move. I can barely tell my trailer's back there when I hook it up. Bottom line, we love this car, its big and strong, yet extremely comfortable and definitely gets a lot of attention.

I'm a fan of chevrolet suburban
