A good friend of mine owned a 1994 Sonoma with the 4.3 and it was a reliability disaster. He had to have the fuel pump replaced 3 times all before it hit 70k miles. At 85k the oil pump failed and the engine seized. You were apparently lucky. The dealer who repaired his truck had one mechanic dedicated to replacing fuel pumps on 4.3's. That's how bad they were. I have owned a 2002 S10 with the 2.2L for 9 years and have found it to be a very mediocre truck at best. I had to replace major steering parts all under 40k miles and now my parking brake has failed at 54k. These trucks are junk. My prior truck was a Toyota and was the best vehicle I ever owned. Drove it to over 200k. Big mistake switching to GM. You have probably never owned a Toyota and do not seem to know what you're talking about. Toyota trucks run rings around so-called USA trucks.Report it
