I found a truck on Craigslist (maybe my 1st warning) it’s a 2002 Chevy dually with 245k miles and the owner says it’s not running. The engine is seized up. What causes that on a Chevy pickup? I’m looking for items to build a ranch so I can take care of my family.
I’ve looked online google search of Duramax pickups to read about a common issue being fuel injectors that need replaced. I was worried it didn’t have oil and burned up the engine! The owner is asking $4k and I have an AAA membership so I can get the truck towed to the shop. Is this repairable? My 2nd cousin Jon Moss actually engineered this truck but he’s in AZ now so I need to get this truck in decent enough shape to be able to drive from TX for him to go over it. What else should I look for in the service records to keep this purchase open for discussion?
