1997 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1997 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.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
