#68 of 400 93 S-10 Blazer 4x4 Transmission help!
Apr 28, 2005 (2:27 pm)
93 S-10 Blazer Transmission help! I just replaced the motor in my 1993 chevy s-10 blazer 4x4 with the 4.3L Vortec ( threw a piston thru old oil pan) when i removed everything the transmission was running GREAT! My only problem, obviously, was the engine was blown... well... since i put it all back together the Motor is running great! but it seems my transmission does not want to shift into overdrive! anyone know what this is? Do i need to have my truck hooked to a diagnostic computer to reset anything? After i put the motor in, I did start the truck without the transmission in it. All I did to the transmission was change the transmission filter. I believe the transmission I have has the electronic "kick-down" It has a electrical connection on the passenger side of the transmission (i am not sure which one this transmission is) I will post a pic of the connector. CAN ANYONE HELP? PLEASE!!!!! I am moving to West Virginia soon and it is a long drive to make going 50mph cause it wont shift into overdrive!
Anyway... here is the pic of the connection (if it works) or msg me and i will email it to you)

I think I have the same problem with some differences. It also appears that others in this forum have some of the same problems. My 1995 S-10 has 176k on it an about three weeks ago it started to sput like low fuel but I had 3/4 of a tank. Trying to keep driving it started to heavy duty stall and then back fire through the pipe. Re-starting it, I thought it would shake the truck apart with back fires and rough running. I thought it was a major problem and stopped and called the tow truck. After about an hour, I helped the tow truck guy and drove it part way up the ramp. This surprised me that it would move at all and it was smooth running. At the dealer they could not find a problem and it ran fine. The mechanic drove it all day with no problems showing up and no error codes. It has been running fine now for the three weeks, about 500 miles. Then yesterday it did it again. Same scenario, started by popping and stalling, a little at first and getting worse. Finally, getting so bad that I had to stop and even afraid to take it into traffic. I let it cool for about 30 mins and it ran but rough. Stopped and let it cool for an hour and it ran all the way home ( approx. 20 miles)(after dark and it was cool) I think I detect a little rough running. I am beginning to think it is heat dependent and it may be one of the computers. I stopped at the local parts place and they pulled up the ignition module that's in the distributor and the main computer. I can replace both for about $400 which is a far cry for what the dealer wants. Am I thinking right here? Does this sound like an answer for some of these other problems in the forum like hard starting and running rough? Which computer is the one that should be replaced?

I just bought a 1988 Chevy S-10 with a 2.5 liter 5 speed. My service engine light is coming on every once in a while when I accelerate. I got to looking at the sensor and all that and I found that the knock sensor's wires are cut and that's why my service engine light is coming on. Can anyone tell me where these wires hook up to?

I have a 96 S-10 4.3L.. When i bought it about 8yrs ago I bought a Haynes Service Manual. They only cost about $15.00. This manual pretty much walks you through any problems you may run across. Plus it has saved me a couple thousand dollars by keeping my S-10 out of the shop. The distributor and plugs should be stamped on the engine? Im removing my heads now due to water/oil mixture and everything is labeled in so way. hope this helps.
#74 of 400 S-10 With High Mileage
May 17, 2005 (9:50 am)
We are looking at purchasing a 1998 Chevy S-10, 5 speed, 4 cylinder. The vehicle that we have found has 170,000 miles on it but appears to be in excellent physical condition both inside and out. It drives beautifully and nothing is leaking and no electrical smell from the engine. The only negative factor is the mileage. Anyone out there driven an S-10 for this many miles? If so, did you have a lot of problems? We only plan to drive it in town, not too many miles per year. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
#75 of 400 97 S-10 4.3 missing problem
May 27, 2005 (4:13 pm)
Hello..I have a 97 S-10 4.3 that I bought new. It just turned over 60,000 miles. My problem is...I am getting a "random misfire code'" 0300 per OBD. It almost feels as if I bought some bad gas it stutters so much. I have replaced the distributor cap,rotor button, plug wires, plugs, coil,and coil modulator to no avail. The fuel pump is about a year old. Marathon admitted to some bad gas about a year ago that caused many people to have fuel gauge problems. I had the same prior to their annoucement so I replaced fuel pump and sender. I also have replaced the fuel filter and pcv valved as well. Geez reading this makes me want a new truck..LOL..I change the oil every 3000 miles and also add a can of fuel injector cleaner. The dealer repaired an oil leak a month ago (oil pan gasket) and I have had this miss ever since. No other OBD codes on this at all. The dealer as well as another shop could not find a thing. They claimed the fuel pressure was correct as well. But I still have this misfire code. Any ideas or help on this would be appreciated. Feel free to e-mail me with possible solutions. Thanks....
