The throttle was sticking on my truck. The dealer removed the throttle body and cleaned the ports. All is well now. Charge was $32.50 plus tax.

Can some one here tell me were the thermostat is located on a 2003 4.3 . I have 47,000 miles on my truck that I just bought. The temp runs 205/ 210 according to the gauge. That seems a little HIGH.

I beleive it is located right at the front of the motor in front of the fuel injector assembly. If the '03 is the same as the '01 than the water hose goes from the radiator on the right side and wraps around under the air intake assembly and back to the front.

I have a '93 S10 4.3L and it ran fine just 2 weeks ago and then I left it sit in my drive and tried driveing it yesterday and it wouldn't shift out of first gear. The speedometer don't work either. I was told it might be the "brain" or computer under the dash but i pulled the dash apart and everything seemed to be connected. I'm in desperate need for some help.

Hello there. I was reading some of these forums and it seems like it might be the same problem I'm haveing. I have a 1993 S10 4.3L Auto. It sad in my drive for about 2 weeks and I went to drive it to the gas station because it had been sitting on empty for atleast 2 weeks. I pulled out of my drive and started going down the road when I heard my engine whining and not shifting into second gear. I was told that it'd might be in the computer but I checked it and nothing is unplugged as far as I can see. Reverse works fine, my dash instruments work fine all except the speedometer. I really need some help. Any Suggestions?

I have experienced the same problem on more than one GM product. However my problem was when the engine was cold. The last problem was on a 92 S10 V6. After replacing it with a new one it was just as bad. I finally installed an electric fan. It's been doing great every since.
