I specialize in wiring problems, and the only thing that fits your problem is a loose
connecter in the back of your instrument cluster " Gauge Pod". Your transmission shifts gears based on a signal from the "vehicle speed sensor". This sensor is also used to turn the Seedometer. If you have a bad connection to the instrument
cluster, or damage to that connection, if will cause your gas gauge not to work, your truck not to sift right, turn signal problems, etc. Any curcuit that runs through the printed curcuit on the back of the "cluster". Usually, the connectors are just misaligned in there sockets.
This could also be caused by a loose ground to the cluster, check your main dash ground located in the lower left corner of the dash, above the E-brake, 14 or 16 gauge black wire.
That should get you fixed-up!

You are correct, More than likely, it is a faulty crank sensor, mounted above the main pully at the front, bottom of the engine. Your camshaft sensor is mounted behind the water pump on the front of the motor, or is build into the distributer, depending on year model. Basiclly, it you have a Distributer, the camshaft sensor is in it "pickup coil" Recommend that you have your car tested with a DIAG computer. This will show the values for each sensor in real time, and pen point the
problem. I would not recommend buying parts, as this could even be a damaged ECM. The factory service manual from a dealer will tell you step by step tests for each part, including the wiring harness.

Sep 05, 2005 (3:34 pm)
I just bought a 1999 Chevy S10 pick up, 5 speed 2.2L. Everything seems ok but the only problem is that after running for a while, when i make a stop, and try to shift to 1st, the engine will stop or it will start jumping like when you take out the clutch out and don't put enough gas on the engine, then if i put it in to neutral, at low rpm the engine sounds good but ass soon as i push the gas, the engine starts jumping and coghing like if it had an obstructed fuel line. I already change the fuel filter, and the air filter, and a mechanic check the fuel pump presure and checks ok, and the comspumtion of fuel seems ok. The mechanic got some codes from the car's diagnostic module, didn't told me which ones, but just told me one was from the TPM and another from some some part of the chassis.
I don't think is an obstructed fuel line because the problem seems to be very random and it's not using too much fuel nor lack power of anything when its running good. Then if i turn off the engine for 1hr or more, then it starts just like new. Any ideas how to find out what it is? I hope i can find out what it is, because i'm about to sell the damn thing. Thanks

Just a thought ... maybe you have two problems ?? 1 is the rough running and the second is the clutch itself?? When you put in in gear with the clutch in - it should not change the engine speed - providing - the clutch is really adjusted correctly. Perhaps the clutch needs adjustment as it is still slightly rubbing on the flywheel when the clutch is in ???

A 96 S10 4x4 5 speed- whats the best weight synthetic oil for the gearbox? It says gm synchromesh oil, but what the hell is that? I'd rather have synthetic oil in it. I put in 90 w gear oil and now it grinds when shifting cold. Any suggestions on what weight to use ??

That year has an issue with plug wires, there is a 7 yr 70K warranty on the 99. My warranty is still good to 4-06.

I don't think is the clutch, or it doesn't feel that way, because the clutch seems to be ok, it shifts right on time without any problem, and it's not to high nor low. And like i said, is something very intermittent. Any other idea? Thanks

I tried to start my s-dime(2.2L, 5-speed, std. cab.) the other day and the lights started flickering along with a loud, quick ticking sound in the dashboard. After a bit, a cloud of white smoke filled the cab and smelled of burnt rubber. I checked it out the next day and it was a wire that crosses under the steering coumn from one side to the other. I need to know what this is, and if replacing that one wire will fix my problem... any help?

Different synchronizer ring materials require specific lubricants to work properly. Use only GM Synchromesh Fluid, PN 12345349
