After going through this thread for the past few days, I finally decided to post. We owned a Sierra from 1998 to 2007. Mine was a 94' NA model. My sentiments are the same as the other guys in this thread. I absolutely loved My Sierra. There may be newer SUVs like the Safari and Scorpio today but none and I mean none have the character that the Sierra came with. My dad loved it, my mom, brother and my dog loved it. He would actually sit comfortably in the space between the front and rear seat. And if you folded the rear seat its nothing short of a double bed.

My Sierra did have its share of niggling problems but we didnt mind. It was THE car to bully rickshaws on the road. Everyone would give way to you . The comfort and ride quality even puts some other cars of today to shame. Never once did I feel tired after a long journey. It was a mile muncher to the true sense of the word. The bumpers were really strong compared to those on the SUVs we have today. Towards the end of it time with us, it started having wierd heating problems and getting good PUC readings were a problem. We eventually sold it in 2007 for just 35k and we still havent bought a replacement for dad yet.

Fond memories I have of this car. Here are some pictures of MH02-N-8269 for all to see.

Dude, Get your AC compressor checked. Not Sure whether that might be exact issue.

I guess @dinar is the right person for your query.

@Dinar/ Gurus: please suggest

There is no need to worry about the patches. The team-bhp stickers are here. Wat else does one need.

Clean the AC condensor, if it is blocked, it overloads the engine leading to overheating issues!

Use Petrol to wipe the patch off! Kerosene works better!
