Your post is confusing, first you mention broken cable, then handle and latch. The cable is attached with 2 bolts. Save your cable receipt, a recall is being looked into at this time.

The wheel bearing problem is a common problem on the 4 wheel drive S10. On the 2 wheel drive models, the wheel bearings are greased and repacked with a brake service. On the 4 wheel drive models, I believe the wheel bearings are self-contained and are supposed to be lubed for the life of the vehicle. Unfortunately, the bearings usually go between 60 and 100 thousand miles. I would check your owners manual to ensure that no periodic service is required for the wheel bearings. Good luck!

Jan 18, 2005 (4:33 pm)
I recently bought a used 2002 GMC Sonoma Crew Cab 4x4. The truck is loaded and the mileage and price were right. The only problem is that the Gas mileage sucks. Really sucks. I thing the truck is getting like 12mpg. Runs great but eats gas. Anybody got any suggestions. I am switching to AMSOIL and an AMSOIL air filter soon. I hope that will help.

i have a question for you all should my truck have any problems starting if the EGR VACUUM CTRL SOLENOID is no working i noticed that one of the outlets the hose connects onto was cracked so stupid me played round with it and it snapped clean off now it wont seem to start .

There is a strong possibility that it won't start. Did you try to tape or re-attach it temporarily and then try to start (electrical tape my hold it long enough for a start)? Is the engine cranking or is it totally dead?
The problem may be that since you engine is not sensing a vacuum signal from EGR, or pulling too much vacuum, it won't start. Don't believe the EGR is electronically controlled. What year and engine type?

I was wanting to put a 2-3" drop on my truck but i was wondering if all the lowering kits are universal. by universal i mean through all years because i would hate to spend $150 on a lowering kit when i can spend alot cheaper else where. any information is welcome. THANKS
