You got a '93 truck with more than 144,000 miles on it? I'm impressed. So far
I've found that I need to get the brake rotors turned and there's a leak in the
front gas tank. Rotors are easy enough to do but I think I'll let a mechanic
fix the gas tank leak. Got a small leak on the power steering pump but looks
easy to fix. Expected much more to be wrong with an 11 year old truck with high
miles. Trucks be good.
