    My wife and I was talking about getting some "Old" truck like yours but we just not sure how difficult it is to work on or to get parts.

    Let's face it, a new suburban probably will run at least $40K+? That's a lot of money. I don't know about you guys but I just can't see myself putting that much on a big SUV. I used to work on my 88...

    One problem for suburban now a day is the price. It is kind of crazy to spend that much on a NEW suburban. Resale value sucks but good for folks in the used market.

    You pretty much know it's not the battery
    I still think is something to do with the starter.
    What kind of sound did you hear now when turn? nothing?

    you need to test drive it and see how it runs. I don't think you can price a car by picture.
    The picture shows a typical suburban. If I were you, I will try to find out more history of the car. ...
