I have a 2001 4x4 Tahoe LS with over 185,000 on her. She has been all over the US and into Canada, sometimes pulling a boat, sometimes pulling a camper, sometimes just loaded with kids and ball equipment and on the daily commute and back and forth to out of town schools and athletic events and vacations. She is the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. We're having some gas gauge issues these days, but other than that, just like her predecessors a 1991 Suburban (stolen with nearly 200,000 miles) and the 1985 Suburban (traded with only 105,000) she starts every time and takes good care of her family. Can you tell we love the Taheezie?

No special tool just a 5/8 plug socket and ratchet maybe an extention. The wires are hard to pull off because they have not been off probably since they were new. Grab the boot of the wire and give it a twist first to free it up frome the porcelin on the plug.

I need help! I have a 1993 suburban with 387.000 plus miles. I need to know what the timing is. The under hood sticker that has that information is gone. If someone would look at theirs I would appreciate it. Thanks.

i have a 1999 suburban 1500, that had a 5.7 vortec that is now gone, i was wondering if a 1997 350 v8 suburban engine would work, or do i have to stick with 5.7 only from only a 1999, or is a 5.7 vortec, the same as a 350 v8?

Wow! My mechanic says that the 92-99 represents the longest-lasting Suburban body style ever produced. Industrial strenght 350 cast-iron engine and built really well from tip to toe. So, you may make a million!
My 2003 just passed 98k and I am seeing lots of signs of aging, nothing that will ground it - just little things (well one big thing - the front differential is spitting up metal shavings and we are changing the gear oil every 2k to see if it stabilizes - if not, that's about $2k).

2001 LT 4x4 99K - has a high idle and shifts late and hard when hot. Suggestions would be most appreciated.
Wife wanted a knew suburban, so we went shopping the other day. There are some decent deals out there for low mileage used suburbans, but would still mean payments for us. Prefer to fix the one we have and drive it as long as possible.
I've enjoyed reading this thread and hope that it picks up as well.
#36 of 37 crazy high miles

I have a 95 suburban 260,000 + miles and other then normal maintence and few typical issues of things just waring out this dang thing wont die. lol. yes original 350 engine. purrs like a kitten. I love this thing!!
#37 of 37 205k and still going.
Oct 25, 2012 (1:24 pm)
I bought my '03 Suburban new, just turned 205k with no issues other than maintenance stuff. I've been shopping for something with lower mileage, but I think I've just decided that I'm keeping it for the duration. I just can't justify the money when it's been such a great truck, and shows to signs of slowing down.
