So I just bought a 2002 S-10 extended cab 4-banger 116K miles. The previous owners wife said that it has been kept up and everything looks great. But what are some common problems that might have been over looked or missed. Also any advice to help me get the most out of my 2K investment would be great. Thank you.

Are water pumps a big issue on the 2.2? I just got one recently also
Not really but overheating it can kill the engine if not caught early. Usually, you can spot a failing pump by looking to see traces of coolant dripping out the weep hole. They're cheap and easy to change if needed.
