GMC 3500 Pickup Problems

Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.

The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.

Leaking coolant under intake running down back of motor

Just picked up this truck and batteries seem a little weak on start up. Want to change one at a time, so want to change the primary first. Assuming it's the one nearest the starter, but want to confirm that and that you can do just one at a time. Thanks
