Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Im considering buying a 1999 chevy silverado PU with 200k on it. The engine is reported as new but I have to confirm that. Tires are new and body is excellent. I have to worry about the mileage on the drive train other than the engine. The asking price is $3900 nego. Im thinking $3000 is what I would like to pay. Does this sound about right?

If there is a new engine as they claim,they spent at least 1,500-2K on that alone so you have to ask yourself,why are they selling it for 4K?I would at least have a shop inspect it or do a carfax or both even if the shop says good.1 thing that is hard to find unless you know exactly what to look for is frame damage.Yes,they do have frame pullers to fix it,but only to a certain degree.If the frame was bent and pulled out,you will probably have issues with front end alignment after tire replacement,maybe shaking at high speed,suspension wear and tear,to name a few.A carfax requires the VIN and costs money,but is worth peace of mind.If that car was ever in an accident,carfax tells you when and what what was repaired.Also,with a bent frame the car will never have any resell value and a dealer will not even take it on trade-in.Good luck!

Will 265/75 r16 tires fit on 2000 chevy silverado

Well I would say yes if it is the new body style and 4x4.Even 2WD you may have to turn up the torsion bars then get the front end aligned.The rims don't matter how tall just wide.I have 2002 4x4 1500 with that size,but not sure what was stock on mine.I also installed the after market torsion keys that will allow for up to 33"tires.Well hope this helps and good luck.

If you aren't getting any engine codes you should check the injector for possible wear/run out.

I am assuming you arent having any engine drivability issues either.

If you only have one injector consider replacing it if the car has over 150-200K as a precaution. Even if it doesnt solve the excessive fuel issue.
