I have another question I wasn't sure whether I should post in the same thread.

I'm contemplating buying a 99 Chevy Tahoe with 70,000 miles on it. It looked ok (no rust on the body, engine looked clean (the PS pump was changed at some point)), but the previous owner had a pet (dog from what I could "smell"). Is it possible to remove the pet odor from the car? The car has leather seats). Will steam cleaning the carpet do the trick?
They are asking for $13K, but I could probably have them sell it to me for about $11-11.5K.

Is this a good deal? Anything "bad" I should know about that year/make?

Is it the 5.7L engine?

As a technician I love Tahoes because they are usually quite easy to work on. Ask the seller if the intake gaskets have been replaced. If they say no then they are probably leaking coolant now or will be in the very near future.

After that ask them about the water pump. Same thing applies.

These are the two biggest problems I have noticed with Chevy 5.7L engines. As far as telling you if the car is a good buy or not all depends on how it was maintained.

Good luck,

ASE Tech and Owner
