1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab LB
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.
The engine compartment is simple!
Mount the heater fan thru the engine compartment firewall. Changing this out is a real pain!
