For $1500 you really can not go wrong. I am not a big fan of domestic vehicles but the trucks from General Motors have priven to be quite durable as well as economical to repair. Parts can be found at any salvage yard or parts store saving you money on repairs. Ease of operation is great and almost anyone you meet has some knowledge of repair for these trucks. Now, for the main question.... I have personally seen these trucks go for anywhere from 150,000 - 300,000 miles depending on the strength of maintenance by previous owners. My advice would be to have $200 when you get the truck home to replace filters, fluids and spark plugs (AC Delco plugs ONLY, if you don't you will trigger a check engine light even if it is running well). If there are any cracks in the serpentine belt, replace it. When you do this, make sure that you are able to read the writing on the belt like holding a book in your hand. If not, it may cause squeeking even on a new belt. Let me know if you need anything else.

My 1996 GMC Suburban has 170600 miles on it. In the last week, it drives fine until you travel about 1/4 mile & reach 30 mph. Then, you loose acceleration. When you push the gas, the engine just revs....


Try dropping the tranny fluid and changing the tranny filter and filling with fresh fluid. Sounds like the tranny is sleeping between shifts.

I have a 1991 GMC suburban, it started fine and


You need to replace the fuel filter every 30000 miles.The gas stations tanks are full of dirt. Also check the flow of the catalitic converter.Put your hand at the tail pipe while someone is pushing the gas petal down. The farther they push the petal the more exhaust should be coming out.
I hope this helps you

How do i fix my o2 sensors on a 1999 chevy suburban 1500


There is no repair to a faulty or broken o2 sensor.If its broken you can replace it easily knowing which one you need to buy.There is more than one o2 senser and if its a faulty sensor you will need to know which one you'll need to buy.If your vehicle has over 100k miles you should consider replacing them all.Some garages will locate and tell you the problem for a smaller fee than them doing the repair itself,then you can fix it your self and save a few bucks.

On the 1999 - 2000 5.7 vortec engines the distributor gears wear causing the timing to change 2 or more degrees. The ecm is designed to shut down at 2 or more degreedifference. This is in a GM bulletin that recommends replacement at 160k miles. Mine went out at 150k miles. Very similar driving symtoms until it quit running. Both cam sensor codes were set on mine though, not the crank sensor.
