I need some help. I have a 1996 Chevy 1500 Suburban. My right side break caliper locks up on me. I have already changed the caliper, rotor, master cylinder and abs sensor behind the rotor. It worked for about 2 weeks and it started locking up on me again. The plastic abs sensor behind the rotor gets melted, due to the heat from caliper locking up. Does anyone have any suggestions? Could it be the ABS unit/module. Please help me.

I've checked the fuses and replaced the DRL module and still no driving lights. What else can I check to find the problem of the driving lights not working?

My 2005 Suburban (5.3 Flex Fuel) started making a noise in the engine. I took it to a mechanic and he said it is internal. I put Lucas oil stuff in it to see if would quite it down. It did not. Someone told me it may be a rocker arm? Any ideas I don't want a new motor

I recently took a 1997 Suburban in to the dealership service shop to get the front brake pads and rotors replaced. After the Brake job was done, the brakes started to act up. The brake pedal would depress and the abs would kick in while making stops from slow speeds. This wouldn't happen all the time but at least once everytime I drove. If the abs wheel speed sensor was damaged during the brake job, how would this happen and how can I get this concern addressed at the dealership. I have taken the car in since and the explanation given to me was that the part was rusted and that taking the sensor out to get cleaned could cause it to break.

have 2001 sub.1500. upper center brake light works when brake pedal depressed but left & right brake lights dont work. bulbs check good. checked for power @ plugs but no power. can anyone offer advice?

Mine has been using excessive oil since less than 10,000 miles. First PCV valve replaced. Then service bulletin number 10-06-01-008a for the deflector “fix”
It hasn't fixed my 2007 suburban. Now we push for a new set of rings & pistons.

Has anyone really had it fixed yet?

Are these ceramic brake pads?

Why would my rear heater be blowing cold air?

When driver and passenger heated seats are on at the same time they both cut off. If only one seat is cut on it stays on like normal.

When trying to start on cold mornings (40 degrres) the fuel system floods the cylinders. Only waay to start is to hold accelerator to the floor. I understand that the injectors don't pulse when you do this. On warm days and after engine has been run, no problems.

brought new every 400 miles 15% is burning oil no leak engine sounds like old car now is 38000 problem is worse.
