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?

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?

You probably have figured this out by now, but when your rpm stays high and your car jerks around, it means you are probably stuck in 4-low. Your transfer case is probably shot too. Anyway sell it if you havent already. In my experience with Chevys you either get a real good one or a lemon.
#55 of 84 Electrical Problems

My 93 Blazer died a few days ago becuase it would not start and none of the electrical worked. We checked the battery and it had no power running from it. The battery was changed and the truck will still not start. None of the lights or electrical systems work(ie remote and power locks) So if anyone can help please do it will be much appreciated

Jan 13, 2006 (8:07 pm)
I recently purchased a 1989 s10 chevy blazer for $550 lots of rust on the body but it has only 53,000 original miles on its 2,8 v6 I am thinking of restoring it I have been driving it for a few days now and have noticed a few things ,keep in mind I am not complaining about my bargain ,it seems to be a bit sluggish in its pick up and shifts into gears a little slow
I also noticed a small transmission leak after I park I have checked the fluid it says its fine , I was told by a friend that that year blazer had a problem with a leaky transmission pan gasket,one other thing my shift indicator seems to be slightly off i really like the truck and I am hoping you guys can offer some help and advice.
