    Just got a 94 short bed standard cab Chevy after I got done with the 84 c10. I did a little preventative maintenance and ended up getting bad parts from oriellys. Spent over a week trying to figure it out. After I got it driving home the check engine light came on so next day I hooked it up to a scanner at work and it said egr problems so I got a new egr then did plugs wires, ignition module, idle air control valve, coil, throttle position sensor and after that it would turn over and not start. Figured maybe got a bad ignition module so I got a new distributor and still same thing. So then after double checking everything I put the old throttle position sensor and idle air control valve back on and fired right up. Just thought I would pass the info on maybe to help someone out later. Today I got a new iac and tps from Chevy and it runs perfect. Lots of brand new junk parts out there these days

    94 looks like it could squat down a bit but clean. Body lines look straight as well. Also that 84 is a looker!

    Nice rides!
    Shows some real pride in ownership.
    And valid warning.
    It’s not just the Big box Parts stores either. Have had similar struggles with Napa as well.
    If it’s a part for a newer vehicle or something I intend to last a long time, I generally make every attempt to buy OEM parts in recent years as the lack of headaches out weighs the additional parts cost. Most recent was 3 bad rebuilt alternators from Napa. 1 lasted a few months and actually died 200mi from home within a few miles of the original parking lot replacement. 2 more bad straight outta the box before I ever left the store.

    I definitely like my chevys! Parts for a older trucks running a carb and no computer. It took me a long time to figure out what went wrong I just was doing preventative maintenance then it wouldn't even fire up. I have had good luck with precision from oriellys and lifetime warranty. I had one pulley get loose but no starting problems. Napa in my town rips people off and overcharging I caught them doing it once
