I am looking at an '89 4.3 4wd s10. it has 162000 miles on it.
What probs do they have, and what kind of mileage do they get?

I think the biggest enemy on the older blazers is RUST, my Dad is driving my old 1990 Blazer with 187,000 miles on it, Besides the paint peeling off, it has rust in the typical spots.. Fenders, body panel before rear wheels.. The engine still gets him 20+ MPG..
