A few newbie questions, looking at a Chev with 5.9
I will be looking at a 95 Chev 2500 with a 5.9l and auto trans swapped from a 93 Dodge pickup. What transmission was used in 93? Any other pointers on what to look for? What are the common issues with this engine/trans? What kind of mpg would be realistic? (i dont know what gears are in the rear end, maybe 3.73s or 4.10s ? ) Thanks
