problem #1

Oct 082005

C/K 1500 Scotsdale 4.3L

  • Manual transmission
  • 141,000 miles

The engine went through the radiators along with bracket, all broken costing a wrecker tow back home along with the costs of these repairs on engine FRAME mount and NOT the engine rubber mounts. Just the one that is on the block had been welded now and way better then GM factory. Stronger and has not broken over the years since 2006. GM needs too put in better materials as frame mounts as they are breaking and is a truck with a wimpy 4.3 V-6. In my life I never seen such and very sad as I used to be proud to own a Chevy. Just as they don't sell a 2 ton anymore? And has me wonder why Olds went out just as excitement of a Pontiac Firebird or a horse they used to make many a years ago.

Also why not keep the Cadillac engine or an Olds? Buick. etc.
