Good times! At least you have some fun parts on it though.

I had a 2002 S-10 with a fancy self-destructing rear end. It went to crap before the first engine oil change. Apparently it either leaked everything out, or just didn't get any/enough oil at assembly. The fuel pump also went out at about 600 miles. Oh yeah, and the A/C was basically done by about 90,000 miles.

My 2007 2500HD had a nice bearing failure in the auto-locking diff at around 80,000 miles, which was around the same time the clutch went to pieces and the tailshaft seal failed. Luckily, all of those were under warranty. The ongoing electrical gremlins were not covered...


Sorry, I had to get that out... :laugh:
GM trucks and I are probably done after those two.

You can't add HP and torque and not expect issues. I'm a Ford guy, but the truth is the truth. :laugh:

That is a common problem on Chevy trucks. So common that most gm dealers keep the parts in stock.
