1992 Chevrolet S-10 Tahoe 4.3 Throttle Body Fuel Injection from North America
A capable truck that is a good choice for any teenager looking for a first car
Clutch plate and release bearing heavily worn at purchase, replaced after 10,000 miles.
Replacement of clutch showed that the factory clutch had been replaced.
Non-factory 02 sensor replaced.
Gauge lights replaced.
Pittman and idler arms need replacing.
This car is apparently indestructible.
Removal/inspection of the transmission proved that the factory fluid was still in prime condition, and no cracks or leaks existed.
The 4.3 liter is a monster engine, considering that it is throttle body injected. It has great pulling power and compression, even after nearly 200,000 miles of mountain driving.
The four wheel drive is strong, and with the right tires, will take you anywhere.
This truck performs on the road as well. It has survived numerous cross-state trips with average speeds ranging from 70-105 mph.
Gas mileage is respectable for 263 cubic inches. Go easy on the throttle and you can get 20-23 mpg with ease on the open road.
General Motors makes solid vehicles, and I stand by that. If you can find an S-10 with the 4.3 and a manual transmission (5-speed) that has been well cared for, you can count on it being the best value for a light duty truck out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
