    Good evening!
    I just recently purchased a 2000 Tahoe with lots of miles and lots of problems. I love the way the truck drives and handles but I have a bad coolant leak and I was not made aware of a starter bolt that was broken off inside the block. I think once I have these fixed, I will appreciate the truck much more. glad to be here and any suggestions would be great!

    well, after $400 paid to the mechanic, it starts now and does not leak. It runs great tho! Will be moving on to brakes and getting the whining noise fixed. One small step at a time. Thanks everybody!

    It's a 10 year old Tahoe, how many miles did you say? Once you get done, provided it was taken care of well by the previous owners, you should be good to go through 250k miles.

    If you want to PM me the VIN I will pull a CarFax and AutoCheck for you just to see if anything major was reported, or if the service was done at a dealership, recalls, etc.
