For the PRNDL indicator, you have to remove the small panel under the steering wheel(2 screws) and you will look for a small cable with a clip on the end. This cable(usually made of nylon) could be broken, or it's become 'unclipped' from the housing.
One end of it is connected to the PRNDL indicator in the dash. The other end of this cable just clips to the right side of the gear select housing drum which is on the steering shaft, just behind the wheel. The housing drum moves with the gear select lever and pulls the cable, which in turn moves the indicator on the dash.
If you find it and it's not broken, just clip it back onto the right side of the housing, roughly in the 3 to 4 O'Clock position.
You can adjust it by moving it's position on the housing until all your gears are indicated properly on the dash when you move the shift lever.

Check your map sensor! I had a simular problem when driving it would act like it was going to stall and never stall it ended up being my map sensor, you can have them plug in and the code should come up if its the map sensor! Hope that helps!

2.2 is a great engine, with such a light truck it is a lot of power! You wouldnt have pulling power but as far as speed it is great! I have a 2.2 and it is pretty quick!

You can put some armour all on them to make them look a little better! There are different waxes that have color tints but I have never used them on mirrors or grilles, I do armour all my mirrors and door handles, even the bed liner when I am really ambitios and it looks great! You might try that as a temporary fix until you figure out something else!

I thought it was 100K that was the first time I had mine changed! Im not sure though! That seems pretty low mileage! But its always better to be safe than sorry! I would say its probably a little early I would suggest somewhere between 50-100 is more appropriate! You should call a different mechanic and not the dealership they always suggest unneeded maintenance!

My o2 sensor has been coming up on my check engine as long as I have owned my truck and when I went to get it replaced they said there was nothing wrong with it! lol whatever! But you are right it is not a maintenance thing unless you just want to do it! It either works or doesnt and my opinion is dont fix what isnt broken!

Dont know about your ac but it doesnt necessarily mean spark plugs my truck did this when the map sensor went out! You should have a code for it if its your map sensor!

Hi,all.I have a 2001 s-10 blazer with an electrical problem.When I start the truck all the lights(head,tail,dash,dome,ect..) blink or flash.It isn't on-off but dims slightly and then gets bright again.It flashes fairly quick.It really isn't noticeable at idle.I am a truck mechanic and haven't ran into this problem on a big truck yet.I was leaning toward a ground or short but hitting a bump dosen't effect the problem.Could it be coming from the alternator?I have checked for past codes and found none.Any help is greatly appreciated.
