1991 c2500 chevy

So wanted to get my tv ready for camping in a week or two. Took it to the shop to get plugs wires cap and rotor and brakes checked. The shop called and said it needed new front brakes and rotors and drive belt so I had them take care of this as well. Took it home from the shop and the master cylinder started leaking so back to the shop it went. Changed master cylinder and took it home for the shop and coolant is leaking out. Took it to the shop and it is the intake gasket leaking so they are changing that out. I hope this is the last of the issues and our firs trip goes well. We have plans to take are trailer to a camp ground about 30 miles away just to be on the safe side on the first trip.

Still cheaper than a newer one. I plan on doing the same with my 05 Silverado and 02 Deville.

With just 79000 on the the truck I think I will just repair it for now. But when it rains it pours. I have looked into the intake gasket and see it was a issue for Chevy on the 350.

With that few miles, it is well worth spending a few bucks to keep it reliable. My last Dodge pickup was 16 years old and had 200,000 miles on it before I decided it was time to buy a new one, and the only repairs it ever had was a new battery and a set of brake pads. Needless to say, I bought another one!
