 Trouble Spots
Check for these possible problems when test-driving and inspecting this vehicle.

Alternator belt: If the accessory drive belt on 4.9-liter engines chirps, the pulley for the power steering may be misaligned on the pump or the A/C compressor may have to be repositioned. If the belt squeals, the automatic tensioner must be replaced. (1990-94)

Automatic transmission: The transmission may slip and the engine may flare when the transmission shifts into fourth gear, which can often be traced to a bad TR/MLP sensor. (1994-95)

Automatic transmission: If the transmission does not shift from second to third, the valve body separator plate may be distorted. (1990-94)

Ball joints: If water gets into the ball joints, they will wear out early and have to be replaced. (1990-96)

Hard starting: Hesitation, miss, stumble, no-start, or stalling could be due to a short in the wiring harness for the powertrain control module (PCM). (1993-95)

Hard starting: If the engine does not start or cranks for a long time then stalls, the idle air control valve may be sticking. (1995-96)

Manual transmission: On trucks with a diesel engine, the clutch may not release due to a leaking slave cylinder. (1993-95)

Suspension problems: The front leaf springs are prone to sag over time and must be replaced. (1991-94)

Suspension problems: Front tire cupping is common with Twin Axle suspension. Often new springs will help, but sometimes other suspension parts must also be replaced. Regular alignment is crucial. (All)

Vehicle noise: A chattering noise that can be felt coming from the rear during tight turns after highway driving is caused by a lack of friction modifier or over-shimming of the clutch packs in the Traction-Lok differential. (1990-96)

Vehicle noise: Loose frame rivets should be replaced with bolts (welding is not approved). (1990-96)
