Our suburban is on it's 4th alternator
and it's 4th fuel pump which is a
400.00 part that is inside the fuel
tank. The water pump and intake
manifold gasket have both had to be
replaced with countles other problems
like brakes and electrical failures.
The motor pings badly when under no
load but going up a slight incline and
has 60% of it's original power.
It will haul a lot of people or stuff
A 40,000.00 vehicle should not require
the constant maintenance this has.
