You have me curious now, what year is your truck? My diesel only made 300,000 miles before the exterior parts were worn out and needing replacement.

It's a GMC 2007. In 2007 General Motors made a drastic design change mid-year which thoroughly confused everyone, so my 2007 was known as the new model, as opposed to the 2007 that looked exactly like the 2006 model.

The fan belt idler pullys on mine was the first stuff to go out at about 250K. Then after 290K the injectors, turbo and something else outside the block started acting up. The transmission started showing signs of need to be opened and fixed soon. So parts and repair were over $20k and I really did not need diesel for the Castle. So I bought Sierra and went away happy. The mechanic said that the block and heads tested to be in excellent shape so the engine did not need to be opened. I feel the Duramax was an excellent engine in my 2004? truck.

That's good information Barney. At the leisurely rate of 6 or 7 thousand miles a year I put on my Duramax that would give me about 10 years before it starts falling apart. I think I'll fall apart long before that happens, so I won't worry too much about it.

Aha. Guys doing vehicle talk. All I ever wanted to know about a vehicle was where to check the various fluid and air levels, and how to replace if need be, and who locally was a good mechanic. Otherwise......vehicle talk can be a pleasant hum in the background. And I kind of like hearing it.

Unfortunately a lot of us guys had to learn about auto mechanics because, I for one, didn't have the money to pay somebody to fix my raggedy old cars when I was a teenager, or a young man. I either learned to fix them, or I walked.

In less you get between the old boondork and a Chinese Buffet, and then the chance of you making it past your current age is zero.

We have only one child who cannot have children so no grandkids. That means I get to enjoy yours and Barney's more.

Within 12 years. They actually said 5 months to 12 years but I still decided not to worry about it. And I am a practiced worrier.

I think one of the most difficult things to stop is, worrying. Worrying is built into us, and for good reason, it forces us to pay attention to things that could get us into serious trouble. But some folks seem to be born with an extra worry gene.
