    It's not my yukon. It's just one that I've been eying.

    I dont want to buy it and have the transmission go out within the next 6 months, you know?

    I would ask the owner if he has any maintenance Records,to see how often the trans has been service.Then I would look under the truck at the pan and see if is leaking Trans fluid or in that area.3rd I would pull the Transmission dip stick and see if the fluid is pink,That is a good sign.If it is brown in color,Most likely problems are just around the Corner.Hope this helps you out.

    Most Trans fluid is pink,but there are some that may have different Color.

    I want to take it to a mechanic, but it's 2 hours away and the guy thinks I'm going to destroy his car.

    What are common issues? Engines last long on these?

    Sorry for all the questions....I'm just paranoid about buying a lemon.

    Again thats a tough question to answer, Does he have any Maintenance Records at all.2nd you could do a Carfax report on it.and last with that many miles on it,Unless your dead set on getting it.IMO I would look around for for another SUV.With that being said.IF the Truck or SUV you are looking at has been taking good care of Then it should be good for few more miles,But how many miles I can't said.

    Default $ here or $ there

    I have a 92 S10 Blazer 287K miles. It runs very well. Because its maintained. Yes a few dollars here or there is one thing. But a trans or rear axle or engine parts are different. If the present owner can tell you when trans was last serviced and should have been every 50 or 60k. Flushed at 100 to 120k things like that. Oil changed regularly. Axle fluids changed or topped off. Brakes in good shape. A/C works and cold. Watch out for the fuel pump at this many miles. Especially if the fuel filter has never or not been changed in a while. If the truck has been maintained go for it.

    Use zippo lighter fluid to break down and remove the glue residue. I soak them from the top and then use the fishing line. After there off use the zippo fluid for the rest of the glue. It sounds crazy but it works great. I work on prototype models at work and we have to debadge them sometimes, I was using goo gone and it would remove paint and sometimes ruin some of the plastics we use in our models. One of the old school painters that works for us showed me the zippo fluid trick. Try it it really works great!!!
