1996 suburban blown motor....need advice.
Good morning everyone. My beloved suburban has lost its engine. She is a 1996 suburban 2500. Engine had 180,000miles. I love the truck. I want to fix it but not really sure how to go about it. Since there are other minor problems like ( broken knobs, blower motor, rips in the seats...ect...) I was thinking of buying a salvaged car for parts. I dont think i could handle the engine swap, but I can do everything else. I bought the truck with 140,000 miles and have done a complete brake overhaul, new fuel pump, new battery, new starter. Its an awesome vehicle for me and my 4 kids. Could you guys please give me some advice. I am mechanically inclined and I am not afraid to get my hands dirty. I have very limited funds$$$.
