Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

No tranny leaks although I would replace rear main if I was to split original tranny not perfect but hard to find a more solid truck with 250k

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Suburban yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing so far no one will do less than total rebuild no slipping four wheel drive even in auto position is seemless have capable friend time and lifes worth of pretty damn good at diagnosis my friend can do just about anything especially challenge I am limited to my physical abilities

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
