1996 Chevrolet Tahoe Problems

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.

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 inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

We bought this Tahoe brand new in 1996, we now have 299,000 miles on it. It still has the original motor, transmission and differential. No major mechanical problems. We do a lot of camping, so it has been towing a lot, only real complaint is the fuel pump, I'm on the 5th one. That 5.7l is a great motor, that's probably why they took it off the market.

It also still has the early 5.7L V8, the later V8's have much more pow...

The check engine light has been o...
