GMC Vandura 2500 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.
An engine vacuum leak may develop from the throttle body gasket causing a higher than normal idle speed. Failed gaskets should be replaced.
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.
A coolant leak may develop from the water pump. This can result in an engine overheating condition. A leaking water pump will require replacement.

should timeing marks on a timeing chain be pointing at each other or in a straight line up
just bragging ,,,just hit 330,000 miles. regular maintence and wear . hope we hit half million mark !!
Bought it in Reno, Nevada and drove it up to Alaska 2 weeks ago. Awesome vehicle with a smooth ride, smooth transmission, strong but quiet engine, and pretty good gas mileage! Will keep it for a long time!
Just got it about half a year ago and I think it runs great and all I have had to do is normal tune up oil,air filter, spark plugs, break pads, drums, calipers, rotors, some new fuses and I am going to get some new rugs for it but the ones in it are still good. And yes that looks like a lot but It only cost about 250 if you do it your self and go to advance auto parts and most of the parts like brake pads are life time warranty.
i wish I could drive this thing straight into a tree! can,t stand it. I've put so many new parts into it and still can't get it to run right..... lesson learned "never buy anything from a person named cleatus!"
