Hi chevy people!
As far as the L/S being luxury, thats wrong I have a 2000 S10 extended cab
L/S, its not luxury. You have to add some of those features you spoke of, like
leather, power locks, windows etc-. the option is there but your gonna pay out the
nose for it. Mine only came with AC. No other luxuries, but I am very happy with
my truck, has 51K and only thing i've had to do is replace throttle position sensor
which, in case you did not know is a common problem according to postings I see
on the problems and solutions site. Anyway mine is 2.2L, I have added cold air
induction, flowmaster exhaust, and got rid of the original rubberband (skinny)tires
and put on some low profile fatties, handles alot better! sounds great!
Anyway, love the site keep up the good work! and CHEVY'S ROCK!!!!

If posting 39 does'nt work, when you ran tank dry and added gas to it, you may
have stirred up some settiment in bottom of the tank. check you pickup valve in
the tank, which is not too hard. good luck!

first things first, you dont have a carb, youshould have fuel injection, second alot of newer vehicles do have a rev limiter, or governer. I have not
had my S10 to that speed, but my work truck(2001 ranger 4x4) does the same
thing around 92mph, called ford and they said normal(rev limiter). last but not
least, the hesitating and not shifting could be your throttle position sensor, your
tranny has to see the proper rpms etc- from the computer to shift properly, and
your hesitating and or surging is probably related to that, I just replaced my
TPS a week ago because I was having problems, truck would act like it was running out of gas(spit and sputter) it would throw a code(check engine light)but
would go away, then would be ok for another month or more, and would do it again
so I took it to my mechanic and he pulled code history and found it to be the TPS.
the one for my truck was only $41, they run anywhere from $35 to $70 depending. good luck Phil, hope this helps

when the clutch is not engaged and you hear a squeaking noise and it stops with just the touch of the clutch pedal it is generally caused by a dry clutch fork pivot ball stud, which causes metal to metal contact with the clutch fork. good luck

I need help!! I have a 95 chevy s-10 blazer 4.3 vortec engine. I just changed the fuel filter in Aug 05, fuel pump changed in 2001, new fuel line...new sending unit...
Problem is the vehicle stalls at a stop light and also takes several times to crank when starting...what could it be the fuel pump?

I just purchased a 1988 S-10. It has a 4-cylinder, five speed. The truck has some customizing, and I cannot determine if this was original or added later. There is a fiberglass visor over the front window and a cowl mounted just behind the cab. The truck has a special "Outlaw" decal on each side. I've researched te RPO codes, but haven't found anything related to the style package.
My 15-year-old and I are fixing this truck for him to drive. We're looking for a 1988 owner's manual, if anyone might know were we could find one.
Love this site!

I have owned chevy trucks my whole life. A couple things could be wrong...It may need some sort of a tune-up...such as spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap/rotor. Also your fuel injectors may need cleaning. Try some fuel injector cleaner from an auto parts store. Also could be a battery or other electrical problem but not likely.
#51 of 84 95 Chevy S10 Question.
Sep 20, 2005 (5:10 am)
Can anyone help me out here. I have a 95 Chevy S-10 pickup and I love it. It's going on 11 years old with about 150,000 miles on it. My question is my truck is parked outside all the time and whenever it rains or there is moisture in the air the next morning when I'm leaving for work it just hesitates until it warms up then it run perfectly. On dry days I never have the problem. Can anyone tell me what might make it hesitate when placed in drive? It clears up when the engine warms up. I'm just clueless? Could it be a sensor? What part would collect moisture and then hesitate when placed in drive? Any info would be great.

Hi everyone, bought a 1996 S-10 Chevy Blazer 5spd, 4wd (or so the previous owner claims) Unfortunately, I know nothing about Blazers (I used to own import sport cars, never a suv or an american car at that) Apparently, it's got 124,000 miles and some moderate body damage, but I got it for quite a cheap price so no complaints. However, ungrateful previous owner did not mention anything that needed to be repaired so I end up driving with all four ball joints (upper and lower) that needs to be replaced along with the joint that connects to this bar which i think is the outter tie-rod, (i didn't know i had to replace these till i heard a very loud clunk noise from my front right wheel and left my car vibrating oddly and unable to make sharp turns either way) And to top it off, my side-view mirrors broke off as well. Now, I'm not about to give up on this car as i JUST bought it so I'm doin repairs. Now the part I'm having real trouble with is when I engaged it into 2wd, the light doesn't show that it's in and the light display that shows if the front wheels are engaged or not always stay on. Does this mean that my transfer case cannot completely disengage? Also, when I try to shift back to 4wd, it is rather difficult to lock it in unless i shift it to neutral first and then shift upwards into 4wd. At some point I couldn't even move it at all and at another point it was stuck in 4wd low and I had to literally force it back into neutral. Any Ideas would be great
Oh yeah, one more thing, It's not happening now but for awhile, My RPM would stay quite high, about 2,000-3,000 and would not drop even in idle, my car would Jerk violently as if I was downshifting and flooring it when really, all I'm doing is cruising. I heard something that sounds like a fuel pump problem like it wasn't able to pump because there was something jammed in the fuel line. Any Ideas on this too?
#53 of 84 S-10 tranny problem?
Nov 09, 2005 (12:02 pm)
When I start up my '92 S-10 PU 4WD it either crawls forward or stalls out. If I give it gas, it stalls out and when I ease up on the gas, it lurches forward then goes back to the crawl. After about 10 min of crawling (while hearing a loud clanging of what I think are the clutch plates-but I could be wrong) it kicks in and drives. It feels warm in the cab afterwards and my transmission fluid level is fine, but had tiny bubbles on the dipstick. Any ideas?
