I have a 96' suburban ( which is my second sub) and I just put a
rebuilt transmission in it. It has 165K miles on it. The question is,
I pull a trailer and have two little kids, I don't want to break down,
so is it worth keeping or should I get a new one. More specifically,
What else can break or what else can I look forward to. I have the
transmission (with a 2 yr warranty) new rear axle, new air conditioning
compressor, new power steering pump. The engine does not leak, but
does have the miles. I love my sub, but the wife wants something she
dosen't worry about. Her mini van is old too so we don't want to be
replacing two vehicles at the same time down the road.
cracks in the plastic radiator tanks, a new water pump, a new
alternator, oxygen sensors, really just minor stuff the engine will wear
out eventually but it should take a long time with regular maintenance.
be extremely careful with the plastic distributor housing or the ears
will break off
