Brake Fluid Leak problems of the 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe
Four problems linked to brake fluid leak have been reported for the 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe.
Brake Fluid Leak problem #1
The vehicle involved was a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. I was driving on a 2 lane road in millersville maryland, I hit my brakes and the pedal went to the floor. I had no brakes. I was able to avoid other vehicles and made a turn onto another road that had an incline. The vehicle finally stopped. I looked around the vehicle and saw that brake fluid was leaking from the rear driver's side of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a mechanic, who determined that a driver's side rear brake line had rusted through and leaked brake fluid . I was extremely lucky not to have crashed myself or injured other drivers. Very, very dangerous situation. The failure date was August 25, 2013.
Brake Fluid Leak problem #2
The car involved was a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. The VIN of this vehicle is 1GNEK13Z32_. Brake pedal went to the floor when attempting to slow down. No warning at all. Had just applied the brakes a few minutes earlier with no problem. I was able to just get the truck home the few miles from the highway. I checked the truck over thinking the brake master cylinder had failed but discovered that the brake line running along the frame to the rear of the truck had rusted, was ruptured, and leaking brake fluid. The truck is well maintained. I was lucky that there was no other vehicles near me when it happened. It was Tuesday, Sep. 18, 2012 when this brake fluid leak issue happened.
Brake Fluid Leak problem #3
The vehicle is a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. I was traveling on a parkway, and had to brake when traffic ahead started to slow down. The truck started to slow down, but while I was still traveling approx. 35-40mph (was orig. Driving 55. . . . Normal highway speed when I started to brake) when the brake pedal went to the floor, and I lost all braking. The only reason I didn't rear end the car in front of me was because there was no car in the lane to my right at the time. I rolled to the side of the road (luckily near an exit), and after turning on my hazzard lights, my friend who was in the passenger seat and witnessed the entire thing, and I got out of the truck. He opened the hood, and I got down on the ground and looked under the truck. It was obvious where the problem was, as there was brake fluid leaking down from above the area of the center (gear housing) of the rear axle. I slowly drove (walking speed) the truck from the shoulder to the exit and into a gas station a few blocks away. The owner was closing up, but was nice enough to take my truck and promised to work on it the next morning. I got a local hotel room for the night, as we were no where near home. The next morning, the mechanic said my truck was done. He replaced both brake lines in the rear of my truck and bled the system. He recommended I drive cautiously straight home (which I did uneventfully), but every brake line in the truck (and fuel line) would need to be replaced due to rust. My truck is in my driveway awaiting a robert Chevrolet (NY) appt. In 3 days. Btw, this bought new by me truck has low milage, and I have receipts piled 1/2" high for between $3,000-$4,000 (out of pocket) worth of brake related brake repairs on this truck, and it doesn't take much searching on the internet to realize this is not a isolated case. Please look in to this because someone's going to get killed. Hopefully not already. This problem occurred on Nov. 4, 2011.
