1992 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Problems
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
The intake manifold gasket may develop an external engine oil or coolant leak. In some cases, an internal coolant leak may occur causing coolant to mix with the engine oil. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.
The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) front wheel speed sensors are prone to failure. When a sensor fails, the ABS warning light may illuminate and/or the ABS system may activate erratically.

I purchased my 1992 Suburban off the show room floor, twenty years ago and still own it with 75k miles on it. It has made some long trips very loaded to northern Manitoba with no problems except I lost a fan coming back home once. No big deal. I love my suburban and still drive it everyday and it looks as good as it did twenty years ago.
My old Suburban was a tank! It handled surprisingly well for being so large, but I wish the brakes were a little stronger like the newer trucks have. The chevy 350 got me there and back with minimal fuss. I had to replace the HEI module once but thats all for the engine. The stock stereo died on me and the cruise control failed so I had to ding electrical. The seats were quite comfortable for long drives to the snow.
