I'm a newbie S-10 owner and this forum looks to be very thorough. Looks like I can get alot of info here. My question is........

I just got a 2002 S-10 2.2L Automatic w/50,000. Regular cab and simple. Just a nice basic pickup. Clean as a whistle.
Should I expect a dependable lasting vehicle (with good regular maintenance, that is). I can handle the maintenance and general repairs.
Durable engine? Tranny? etc....

Thanks.

Sounds good, actually GREAT!!

I've currently got a 2002 Sebring with the 2.7L v6 in shop awaiting a replacement. With only 38,400 miles it went.
It overheated and blew the head gasket/engine. So that's why I specifically inquired about the 2.2L S10 engine.

Thanks.

237k and going out of state in the truck tomorrow for the week. It is my daily driver and just has had normal maintenance. Nothing inside the motor has ever been touched not even a head gasket.

as long you make sure it doesnt overheat, dont drive it like its nascar even though it cant exceed to 8,9k but 6K is limited, and dont forget to maintaince on rear axle as well, makes a difference as well.
