1997 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup ProblemsInside/Outside Door Handles May Break
The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.
The intake manifold gasket may develop and external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Our technicians tell us that operating the engine with a coolant/oil mix can result in internal engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct these leaks.
The windshield wipers may not work intermittently due to a faulty wiper motor control board. Our technicians tell us that lightly taping on the wiper motor when the fault occurs should temporarily get the wipers working again. Some vehicles were recalled for this problem and some were not. You will need to check with your local dealer to find out if a specific vehicle was included.

My friend has a 4/4. He walked in to the gas station and he shut it off. Before that it was running fine. He started right up. It sounded like the starter went. We took it in to get it checked out and it works fine. There is gas in the tank.
