    I am looking at purchasing a 98 chevy with a 350 in it it has 102,000 miles on it. How long do these engines last before they need a rebuild and how about the transmissions it is an automatic. Any bad things about these trucks???

    I've got the 97 vortec 5.7 with 113.000 miles on it and it is still running strong..The earlier vortecs had problems with coolant leaks at the intake manifold but it is an easy fix ..I am hoping to get 200.000 miles out of it brfore rebuild.
