The hood release cable is about 15.00 and they are not hard to install.
You can open the hood by removing the grill and using a screwdriver to
pull the latch open. The brake cable depends on what you want to do.
Since it is rusted in place I would just replace all of them, that would
be about 50.00 for the parts with the front cable being the pain to
The CPI unit is a fuel regulator and single injector that feeds the
cylinders through plastic tubes and poppet valves. Nothing like a carb.
Pumping the pedal makes no difference, no accelerator pump. Unless the
engine doesn't fire there is no way to flood it.
Common body rust on the S trucks - Bottom of the doors (poor drainage
just like most other GM doors), front inner fender braces ( dust,dirt
buildup from not being washed out, in salt states it is REAL bad) , rear
quarter panels (from the tires sandblasting the area directly behind the
tire), Rear tailgate (again poor drainage) Most parts are available in
patch panel form OR complete replacements.
Check the front suspension and wheel hubs close, as well as the steering
system. Check the oil filter/cooler lines over close as well. They are
prone to leak if they haven't been replaced with updated parts yet. That
would run about 120.00 if it has the cooler about 75 if only a filter.
Some seepage is just about normal but if you wipe the hoses off and
drive it around some there shouldn't be obvious leakage.
Most of these are the same for any used vehicle but they are some of the
more onerous areas on the S series where people report problems.
