#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

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.

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.

Head gasket, cracked head, does the exhaust smell sweet. What codes do you show.

#1317 of 2018 1988 S10 rearend/transmission
Nov 23, 2005 (5:57 am)
I bought a 1988 S10 2WD over the summer that has V6 3.8L engine w/auto transmission(originally manual). I have since found out that the engine is from a Monte Carlo 1986/87. The rearend and/or transmission recently went out. The guy I bought it from didn't have it long enough to know much about the history of it. Can anyone tell me what type of transmission would have originally been in a S10 w/4.3L engine?

Well, it's not the relay. Those are supposed to click. I successfully fixed my problem after noticing the plug into the switch on the brake pedal was under a varying amount of sideways tension throughout the range of motion of the pedal. So I gently pulled the wire bundle down a half inch or so to give the plug some strain relief, and that took care of it!
#1319 of 2018 won't stay running
Nov 24, 2005 (10:53 pm)
Hello All, I recently bought a 96 4.3 4x4 ran great for a short while, now when I start it the rpms peak at about 1400, then drop to about 5-600 and the truck of course stalls. I have replaced the coil, cap and rotor, plugs and wires, all no help. after finishing the plugs and wires, the truck started fine and ran great around the block....I parked it and was ready to declare victory. an hour later I loaded the kids in it and started it to visit the video game store...same problem...got a few ideas where to look next, but I am hoping some one in here has seen this problem and knows what to look for? any help would be greatly appreciated
