All My Buddies are headed up north for the big weekend, and My blazer is itchin' to go. She has alwasys blown smoke out the rear and burnt oil, but she doesn't overheat. I know that the ball joints need to be replaced, and she needs a tune up. My problem is that everybody's going wheeling while we are up there, but I'm the only chevy guy. /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif There's a couple of mopars (jeeps and trucks) and a couple of Furds. Will a back woods trail 250 mi away be a huge problem for my 90 K5 190,000mi old? /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif I know the trans is pretty solid, but I know it will burn a quart of oil getting there and back. I've got one day to work on it (8:00-5:00) Then leaving @ 5:00. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif What would You do??? Thanks Jeremy.
