    Default hello from st. louis

    hello i just got a 95 suburban and i though id introduce my slef . im joe and this is my 2wd suburban with the 350 . this is the only pic i got right now (from the craigslist ad). its lowered some but im going lower in the rear. ive always wanted one and now ive got it.

    but i do have a question. when on part throttle it bogs down but if i floor it it picks up. it also searches for idle at stops.(300-400 rpm) i was told it needs a o2 sensor but would that give me my problem?

    i will get good pics on monday. (the wheels ARE the same color)

    Welcome to the site. Changing the O2 sensor is a good start. 300 - 400 RPM seems a bit low to me but I'm not sure. Normally V8 motors (while in park or netural) idle a little above 600. How's the Landing holding up in ST. Louis?

    Welcome to the site! Another Suburban joining the site! You might do well by having someone check for trouble codes. A lot of the "parts stores" will check them for you. Good luck!

    Welcome to the site. That problem sounds iritating. I would definitely get the codes checked. But I'm betting on one of the 02 sensors too.
