problem #1

Suburban 4WD

Our ase mechanic states they have replaced ~35-40 similar chev Suburban radiator failures in past 24 months in their shop (documentation on request). These have been associated with water pump failures, intake manifold leaks and occ. Head gasket failures when coolant has leaked over engine. Among ase mechanics in our area this is a well-know, "lemon" design failure which will cost me $900 to repair.
