GM Releases TSB On Chevy Tahoe, Suburban And GMC Yukon Over Heater Hose Issue3
General Motors has issued a technical service bulletin for certain examples of the 2021 model-year Chevy Tahoe and Suburban and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs over an issue related to the auxiliary heater coolant pump hose.
The problem: affected vehicles were built with a faulty horizontal hose for the auxiliary heater coolant pump. The clamp may not be properly aligned and positioned on the hose, or the hose is rolled over on the pump port. This GM service bulletin includes vehicles in dealer inventory and customer vehicles that return to the dealership for any reason. The bulletin will expire at the end of the involved vehicle warranty period. Involved GM SUVs come with a three-year/36,000-mile (whichever comes first) basic warranty coverage.
The hazards: vehicles with this issue can develop a significant fluid leak early in the vehicle’s life. As the coolant level drops, a Low Coolant Warning or potential for engine overheat with DIC message will be relayed to the driver via the instrument panel.
The fix: dealers are to inspect both the vertical and horizontal hoses for the auxiliary coolant pump and repair them as needed.
Affected components: horizontal hose for auxiliary heater coolant pump.

Continuous evidence these new vehicles are the best crap GM can produce…sad commentary.
GM has some really nice looking vehicles. But That’s it, beauty on the outside and absolute crap quality control on the inside. GM vehicles will spend their life mostly at the dealership or mechanic
This happened to my suburban rst at about 3500 miles. The heat was only putting out 60 degree air while parked for a day or 2. That was the first sign of a problem. The second sign was the heat inside the truck no longer worked last but not least the overheat warning came on the hud. There was no coolant warning to be sure. This all took place inside of 2 days and right after a 250 mile driving day. We were just grateful it wasn’t on that day…
