Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 160000 miles
We have owned the vehicle for @ 6 weeks and so far I have had to replace the power steering pump, distributor, and AC control head. Last week, the engine was overheating and before we could get taht checked out, it threw a rod. The automotive garage said it needs a new engine. He quoted aprice for a new engine with 3yr/100,000 mi warranty or a rebuilt engine wiht a 12mo/12,000 mi warranty. My question is should I continue to sink money into a truck that seems to be a money pit? Or should I consider the fact that these are normal things that eventually need replacing due to age and mileage. This truck belongs to my 16 year old son. Should I invest the money to have the motor replaced?
have the same problem?
