1993 GMC Suburban 1500 Problems
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.
The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.
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. Running the engine with a coolant/oil mix may result in engine damage. Replacing the intake manifold gasket should correct this issue.
The quick-connect fittings for the heater hoses tend to leak engine coolant. This problem commonly occurs because the metal housing has become brittle, which can break and cause leaks.

I love our 1993 GMC Suburban K1500 SLE in has factory skid plates to protect front Axle and transfer case. We call it "the Tank" it has never been stuck in snow even at 2ft deep, drives on the highway like a Cadilac still. The bad parts are the brakes (mine has the heavy duty ones to boot!, they barely stop the truck and have bought the best rotors/drums and pads/shoes the 4 wheel disc brakes should have been standard equipment on these.
Now have trouble pasing emmisions for NJ but may have to add second aftermarket cat to pass? 235,000 on the Odometer!
Bought my 1993 1500K 4x4 in 96 with 61,000 miles on it. Its at 265000 miles and going strong. I think I can get another 100000 out of it.
my suburban has about 220,000 miles on it. engine runs like a champ, couldn't ask for a truck thats better in the snow and ice (AWESOME)!! only problem i have is that one by one, all my power windows went out. and when i press on the brakes when going over a bump or sliding in the snow, it makes a "BOING" noise. not sure what it is, probably the anti-lock brakes. that aside, its an awesome truck; i strongly suggest it
I love my suburban, its been a great veh. has only 99,000 miles on it . Most have been highway miles. Retired now so hope to keep it
for another 17 yrs. Have always goten 18 - 20 mpg with it loaded with gear and 6 people.
