I need the wisdom of more experienced and mechanically inclined people. I purchased my truck Susan about 6 months back and so far I have dropped $1,200 in repairs on it thanks to mechanical problems. Add in all the basic maintenance like 2 new tires $400, oil changes and other odds and ends so I am sitting at $1,700 in stuff put into this truck in 6 months. I love my truck, Susan is awesome, exactly what I want and is just pushing my buttons right now. First Susan threw the serpentine belt which took the power steering with it, busted the bracket that held the power steering where it needed to be which left two bolts sheered off. bolts extracted, welded the bracket back together, new power steering and new belt left me at $900 and no truck for 3 days. Got the truck back, ran great for a while then when I was pulling out of the long driveway onto the road Susan just straight up died. Was running smooth then nothing, did not restart and ended up towing it to the shop. My fuel filter clogged, starter bit the dust, starter coil ended up going with it. shelled out $350 and another 3 days and my mechanic is not entirely sure that was the cause. Now up to this last attempt at sabotage. Was sitting in traffic on the interstate and Susan died again. This time I got him to start and I made it back to base. It ran smooth after as well. It doesn't sputter, grumble or make any noise. It like a complete loss of power. Both times Susan died while I was idling. Any ideas, I am hoping Susan makes it back to WI without dying on me since a tow truck just isn't going to happen. Oh and specs 1989 Chevy Silverado 2500 Yes his name is Susan. He would like it if you respected his lifes choices.
