FAQs—Chevrolet V10 Suburban
I own a Chevrolet V10 Suburban, and I noticed that one of my door locks does not readily close whenever I use my remote control. Yesterday, it stopped working. Should I replace the lock or the whole power door lock system? What should I do to fix it?
Due to carelessness and frequent use, it is inevitable that your vehicle's power door lock system may fail. If you experience slowness whenever you operate your door, then you might have a problem with the system's components. When this happens, it is usually caused by a worn-out power door lock actuator and not the whole system itself. However, the wise thing to do is to replace the actuator with a new one. This is a common problem to all vehicles that needs to be addressed urgently to avoid compromising your vehicle and your passengers' safety whether you are parked or on the road.
I've been having a hard time with my Chevrolet V10 Suburban recently. The speedometer of my vehicle is not working properly. I almost got flagged due to overspeeding when in fact the speedometer says I'm only running at 60 mph. I need to fix this before I see another traffic officer. What should I do?
The electronic instrument panel of your vehicle, just like any other components, is bound to fail. Over time, all the parts of your vehicle will succumb to damage and corrosion and your gauge is one of them. When this happens, it is important that you bring your vehicle to a repair shop immediately to fix it. You might also need to check if your vehicle is still covered by the warranty, especially if your mileage is less than 70,000 miles. If you ignore this problem, you might also have a difficulty reading your odometer, temperature sensor, and fuel level. It would really be a hassle, so you have no choice but to have it fixed as soon as you can.
I was on my way home from work when I realized that there is a problem with my vehicle's shifting and transmission. My Chevy downshifts into first gear around 30 mph and will stay there until I slow down. After that, it will kick into second gear again. I've also had problems starting my vehicle. What's wrong?
You may want to check if your clutch is broken. If yes, then you need to take your vehicle to the repair shop to have it replaced. You can verify this on your own if your oil smells burnt. Check your dipstick if the oil has shavings or fine particles in the pan. If yes, then you should flush it out and change it with fresh fluid. Make sure it is the brand that your manufacturer recommends to ensure that it is compatible and won't get burnt again. Also, you should check your starter fluid if you still have enough, and refill it if it's already empty. This is to ensure that you will not encounter problems starting your vehicle.
