#1305 of 2018 2001 Chevy wont start
Nov 19, 2005 (7:22 pm)
I've had so many problems with this truck(2001 chevy s-10) no one seems to know the source of my truck stalling or not starting up. Dealer says it was the battery and starter, got those replaced still stalling and not starting up. I also got the fuel pump checked, checked out okay. I'm tired of spending money on problems that keep coming back. Anybody have any ideas on what could be causing these problems?

I own an '87 S-10 2.8L that has an '89 motor in it. I had the motor swapped out in apr. there was no problems with the motor before the swap. All of the sudden am having problems with the truck running. Have replaced the fuel pump, filter, electronic ignition module(2x), and coil. truck is running rough now. Was wondering if I put the wires back on in the correct sequence?
#1307 of 2018 S-10 Ignition on all night...
Nov 20, 2005 (5:42 pm)
...now the engine turns over (after replacing hopelessly dead battery) but does not appear to have any spark. The truck is an 88-S10, 2.5L, 5-speed. I replaced the coil wire which was badly chaffed and still no luck. What damage could have been caused by leaving the ignition in the ON condition all Night? Could it have damaged the Coil, or am I in for a distributer module replacement?
Thanks In Advance for any assistance!
#1308 of 2018 heater dillema
Nov 21, 2005 (5:36 am)
I have a 99 S10 with 195K on it it runs great and never a lick of trouble. I have one small problem, heat! I get plenty of heat but not from the floor vents. If I select the the floor vent, it comes out the defroster. If I select the dash vents it comes out the dash and not the defroster (which is right). If I select the defroster it comes out the defroster (which is right). I've watched the damper actuators stroke and they all move fine. I think the damper has come loose inside of the ductwork but for the life of me I can't find a source diagram that shows which damper is for which or how I can get at them. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks, Mike

My 1998 S10 has Exactly the same problem. The actuator moves nicely from one position to the next. I have replaced the heater(diverter switch- very expensive)switch and this did not solve the problem! Sorry I do not have the solution! Rick
#1310 of 2018 2001 S10 Transmission noise
Nov 21, 2005 (11:48 am)
I have a 2001 S10 ext cab 2wd w/ 4.3L pickup with 55k and since it turned cold in Ohio it sounds like a I have a turbo under my seat. The transmission whins up in first or reverse for just a few seconds and after it warms up its as quiet as a church mouse. Local Chevy garage never heard of such a thing but heard the noise. Suggested tranny flush or replacement... works and shifts great except the noise when sitting in extreme cold (38 degrees and under) .. any help?
#1311 of 2018 2001 Sonoma Automatic Transmission
Nov 18, 2005 (3:12 am)
I recently purchased a 2001 GMC Sonoma with 17,500 miles. The vehicle has the 4.3L V-6. I notice a sound like an electric drill between 2nd and 3rd as it shifts. As the transmission warms this sound goes away.
Any ideas??? Thanks
#1312 of 2018 1998 Chevy S-10 2.2L Gas getting into Oil
Nov 21, 2005 (8:26 pm)
I own a 1998 Chevy S-10 2.2L and it began running very rough and there is gas dumping into the oil. It is burning very rich and the fumes will burn your eyes. Does anyone have any idea as to the problem. I changed the fuel control valve and this did not help.
#1313 of 2018 Re: S10 Brake lights [markshuman]
Nov 22, 2005 (6:26 am)
I have a similar brake light problem in my 97 Chev K1500. The relay clicks as the brake lights go out after the pedal is depressed more than an inch or so. Depress much further and lights come back on, with another click in the relay. I don't know if relays are supposed to click like that. With relay out, the center brake light still goes on and off the same strange way but without the rear brake lights or clicking. Auto parts stores I found do not carry these relays, so I still need to figure out where to get one to try. Have you had any more luck?
#1314 of 2018 S10 losing antifreeze at a rapid rate, no leak
Nov 22, 2005 (9:22 am)
My 2000 Chevy S10 has been using antifreeze like crazy. I fill up the resevoir one day & the next day it's empty. My service engine soon light keeps going on & off. It hasn't run hot once & there are no detectable leaks when it is parked overnight or after driving for a distance. Nothing is leaking on the inside either. What generally causes this? I know there are probably several things.
