Have to get rid of her :(

General Chat Chat about all things Blazer (and related vehicles). Off-topic stuff should be in the lounge, and all mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

What could I do? Happy wife, happy life, so I paid AAA $6K to drop a new long block into it. Yes, we're now way upside down in that vehicle, but the wife loves it, so it's staying with us indefinitely.

I don't feel bad about the price. The bill was pretty evenly split between parts and labor, and Summit gets $2500 for the RPO L35 Vortec long block. And, while AAA's labor rate is higher than some, I got a 3-year parts and labor warranty with the job. I'm good with that.
