#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

#1323 of 2018 Carb problems on 89 S10 with 2.5 engine
Nov 26, 2005 (7:39 pm)
I'm running a 2.5 Chevy motor in a street S10. I took off the TBI and put on a Clifford manifold and a Holley 350cfm. The engine starts easily and revs clean in neutral. When driving the engine runs good at low rpms but above that it misses and surges. My air/fuel gauge shows it's running rich but the spark plugs are only slightly black. I haven't tried leaner jetting because I'm having problems finding Holley jets locally. I've adjusted the fuel pressure from 3,5,7 and ten with no improvement. The engine is stock except for a Mallory ignition, manifold and carb. I was told this set up would work and be reliable but now I'm having doubts. Is a Holley 350cfm too big for this setup? I would really appreciate any help you can give me on this.
