I also have a 2.2 in my 2000 S-10. I just returned from a trip up to Tahoe, fully loaded with gear. Except for the fact that I had to shift down in the hills it performed flawless. No vibration at all at 70+ mph. I will sacrifice a little lack of power for 29 mph. The Vortec engine is totally different from all the other previously built 4 cyl. Do a internet search for specs. Just like the 6s' and 8s' that GM builds now, most the parts are not interchangable with their previous motors. I remember before 1996 that the GM 350 could use the heads off almost any small block Chevy motor. No more. I just hope that this new Vortec four is as dependible as the old "iron duke" of old.

I recently bought a 93 S10-Tahoe 4.3V6 auto. Overall it seems pretty good for having 125k miles on it (has typical valve guide oil smoke problem). My question is what is included in the Tahoe package? It has manual windows, door locks, vinyl seats, no tilt or cruise or carpeting. Is the Tahoe package just wheels and moulding?

I had a 92 S-10 Tahoe. It has manual windows and door locks. It also has a tilt wheel. Cloth bench seat it also has carpeting with rubber floor mats. 4.3L V-6 just a radio no cassette or cd. The wheels are steel with plastic caps. This is a great work truck. It has 90000 mls on it. My dad has it back now since i have bought a silverado. How can you guys live with a 4 cylinder???

I've heard the 4 cyl/5 speed is peppy, never drove one though. I know the 4 cyl with the auto is very slow, at least the one I drove, (thought I'd give the 4 banger a chance, better mileage and insurance) so I got the V6.

I drove a 4 cylinder sonoma (automatic)for about 3 months while my grandpa was in the hospital. (me and my cousin switched every wk) That thing was a dogg. My cousin took it after my grandpa died. It just recently got totaled.

A truck with 120hp and gets 29+mph is a little doggish, but who cares. Did you ever check the gear ratio? Tall gears will dog a 4 cyl. My 2000 S-10 is plenty peppy for my use around town. The LS has all the bells and whistles, AC, PS, PB, and were do you think all those accessories get that power?

4.3 V6, Power window, locks, cruise, cassette, tinted extra-cab(with crappy little jump seats)windows and rear window, tilt, and bucket seats with center console. A little more plush on the door panels, chrome trim etc. 226,000 and looking to sell. Body is clean, 1 year old paint(same white), painted for look only, no accidents. Runs great, no oil burn, and still good compression, but have no idea what someone would pay for it. Any ideas? I am not expecting much...

If you look at the front page of www.edmunds.com, there is a "try our used vehicle appraiser" and "used car and truck prices & reviews" section.
It should have the information you are looking for.

My wife and I pick up our 2001 LS Ext. 4X4,Auto on Saturday. We have been real happy with our 95 Sonoma, equipped the same way, and had two S-15s before that. Some of the posts here have me wondering how happy we will be with this one. I'll keep you informed as time goes by.
