1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

Purchased this truck with 103xxx miles miles in Nov 2011 for $1600, it now has 124xxx. It ran great except for the tranny, it would jerk forward when shifting from 1st to 2nd and shift late from 2nd to 3rd. However, I bought it knowing full well of the tranny problems, wasnt that bad. The truck ran excellent for the first 4k-5k miles, then it left me stranded due to a bad ignition coil. 2k miles later truck wouldnt start due to a bad fuel pump. But its to be expected from a 20+ year old vehicle. Very weak rear suspension. Ive had to change all of the following parts:


Best Features

Ignition coil Map sensor- EGR valve- IAC valve Cluster Radiator Fuel pump Idler arm Pitman arms Upper coolant hose 2 x thermostats Intake manifold gasket Master cylinder 4 rear shock absorbers Exhaust flange gasket Water pump 3 rear shocks leaf springs muffler 2x Ive spent a total of 4 grand in repairs and parts. I think today is the day I cut my loses. The truck is currently in the shop for a new water pump. Yesterday I changed the intake manifold gasket and radiator. I feel bad because I really like it, its my first truck. Favorite features are: very strong engine, body style 5 stars, interior space; seats 3 comfortably.


Worst Features

I have nothing against GM/Chevy. I think they have manufactured a great product. I think the truck is pretty reliable. A reason for all the break downs could very well be due to its age. I also used the truck as my scrap truck; I always overloaded. She works all day non stop. I might upgrade to a heavy duty 2500 or a 5.4 f250 super duty. I've heard good things about those trucks. I'd definitely recommend this truck to anyone who is looking a for a daily driver or for light duty use only.

Review

Third owner (bought at 72k). Always been reliable. 145k, replaced most of the basics, alternator, fuel pump starter, water pump. Clutch made it to 109k, even with towing and hauling. ECU has failed twice, Im told that's to be expected with this model. For a half ton, there is not one on the market today that can haul like this. I'm sad the NE rust is finally setting in, because this truck has been solid since day one. Easy to work on, V6 is very small under the hood, five speed is adequate, but ratios are spread pretty far apart from 2-3. Looking forward to another 100k.


Best Features

The bowtie, this is what Chevy should strive for. A simple dependable, tough truck, no real frills, just a built to last, turn the key and go, day after day, year after year.


Worst Features

Too late for any really, but some more pull from the 4.3 V6 would have been nice, and a better five speed too.

Review

I'm 17 years old, and I just inherited my Dad's truck. It has 133,000 miles on it, and I gotta be honest, it's awesome. The truck is so sturdy, and I've gotten 1,600 pound loads on it before no problem. The engine is powerful and gets up hills easily with a full bed. Get this truck if you can! Its super reliable, and we've had only minor problems with it. I use it for scrapping metal at junkyards, hauling household appliances, and logs for firewood. Again, it has never let me down.

Review

It's been a very dependable truck for the intitial cost up to about 68 thousand miles. I changed the original universals for the first time at apprx. 68,000 miles. Around 70k though, I needed a serpentine belt and the altenator bearing was squeeling and radiator cap was leaking. Around 68k I had to changed the cap and rotor. It does smoked on start-up and I believe this is Chevy's use of a rubber valve grommet that tends to loosen and stay up on the stems, allowing oil to creep down the stem. It clears up quicky and isn't that smoky. Economy? A whole new exaust, reg. oil changes, air filter and driving in 5th has me in the high 17's. The electrical 4wd needs patient's. In-all? a good truck.


Best Features

The engine compartment is simple!


Worst Features

Mount the heater fan thru the engine compartment firewall. Changing this out is a real pain!

Review

I am the third owner of this vehicle and its still running stong. Since I have aquired it it has needed few repairs other than the standard service; mild tune up, cooling system flush and other routine maintenance. Overall this is a great work truck except for the lack of power.


Best Features

The paint is definitely a high point, shines like no other. Interior room is also very adequate.


Worst Features

The clutch on the 93' is hard to get into low/reverse and the rear brakes don't offer much when the bed is empty. The V6 is not a good choice for any real work, it lacks power.
