Well, figured I would put up my introduction. Name is Ares89Burb, live in Nor Cal and I just acquired a 1989 Chevrolet Suburban R2500 w/454 TBI. Found the forums through Google. Definitely not my first go round on automotive forums. Been posting on RX7club, Honda-Tech, Zilvia, Fordification to name a few. I got back into my Chevy Suburban a few weeks ago after my Grandpa stopped towing his camping trailer and does more relaxing at home. He bought the Suburban brand new in 88 fully loaded (still have the window sticker, took the base price of $15xxx and doubled it!!) and having the truck still in the family and running great is fantastic. He had the 454 rebuilt about 25k miles ago as well. So compression is great on it! A/C works, all the windows and amenities work with no issues. Well I took it home and let it sit until I got take a look over it, and walking outside the next day saw a huge puddle of fresh fluids under the truck. After laying down on the ground I wiped my finger through it and took a sniff and smelled tranny fluid. Whomever did the last tranny filter change left a bolt out and left the rest very very loose. New kit, and new fluids later that was fixed and it purrs like a giant 454 cubic inch kitten. This isn't my first experience with Chevy's either. My very first vehicle was a 1991 Chevy S-10 Blazer 2WD 2-door with a 4.3L V6, sold that with a little over 310,000 miles on the original motor and as far as I know it is still running great. Anyway that's pretty much it. I'll be lurking around the forums and reading up as much as I can about my new truck and enjoying a piece of my families history.
