2006 Chevrolet Tahoe QuestionsMy blower motor continuesly runs with ignition switch turned off (2 answers)
Sporadically makes knocking noise. I took it to a repair shop and they mentioned something with one of a few flaps that moves with oil pressure. The guy told me to get a new vehicle. It started after an oil change. Any ideas if this is repairable at a reasonable price?

Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase.

Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.
