    Thats it I\'m thinkin of selling the truck

    I hate my truck. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif I couldn't figure out why it had an occasional skip so I took it to the shop and they could only get it to skip once during the week. So I picked it up Friday and left it at work over the weekend and this evening I'm driving home and it craps out and die's, so I restart and go 50 ft and it dies again I finaly get it into a parking lot and it starts right up like nothings wrong then dies when I try to take it out on the street /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif So I called one of my customers and he sends a rolloff over and takes it to a shop he uses. So now I've decided I'm not mechanicaly Inclned enough to own a 14 yr old ruck with 236k miles on it. So what do I get an '04 Grand Prix or an Impala /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Re: Thats it I\'m thinkin of selling the truck

    Oh man can I relate. See my posts over the years concerning this very thing...but whatever you do, don't get a little car. If you have to sell your truck, get a 1500 chevy 4x4 or something so you still have your nuts intact and have a truck. My relationship with my particular k5 is a love hate, for sure. Sometimes I want to sell it so bad, other times I just want to drive it as is, and sometimes I want to modify it further... However, I never do sell it and always keep on keepin on. Hope you find the right path for you. Let us know how it all works out!

    I did that too, then my alternator in the 95 died, my TPS died, that vaccum problem, injectors were messed up, and the damn alarm went off and I didn't even know I had an alarm let alone how to turn it OFF! Yeah well I miss my 95 now that I've sold it but at the sametime I don't.

    ive been on and off about selling my truck for a while now, i figure if someone wants it, they'll offer to buy it, and its gone for the right price...keep it, you'll regret it later, ive regretted selling all my vehicles so far..

    I sort of regret selling my 95 but if I didn't the K5 project wouldn't be anything like it is. I'm EXTREMELY happy I didn't sell my K5 those hundreds of times I said I was going to.
