So my mechanic called me yesterday and my torque converter is toast. $950 bucks total...which of course isn't bad. However that is one thing that needs to be fixed out of several. But hey, its not a motor - yet. I've asked him to get me some prices on changing the upper ball joints, the oil pressure sensor, and the rattle in the back that drives me nuts. The big repair, the oil pump, is dependent on oil pressure after that sensor is replaced. So I could have a 2k bill on this, and even then I dont know what might fail next. I cannot find any 07+ suburban 2500 under 18 grand right now, and I think I have maybe 11k in it right now.... I'm considering getting this mickey mouse stuff fixed, and pushing it down the road. I had a variety of people hit me up on craigslist about it, so I think it would sell. I generally like it, and I might continue to fix it up, but I'm seriously looking for like a 2500 crew cab pickup with 1 owner who can give me a more comprehensive history on the vehicle.
