#200 of 324 whining noise
Jul 11, 2009 (5:40 pm)
Have a 98 Sonoma 4x4 was driving down the highway at 65mph and got this loud whining noise at cruising speed. When I accelerated harder the noise quieted a bit but loudened as I slowed again.
As I pulled off highway the noise grew from a whine to a loud buzz and clicking. The noise persisted for a while. The transmission seemed to shift fine, no loss of power. The belt, brakes, are fine. I gunned it testing out the and the noise cleared up.

#204 of 324 '86 S-10 4X4, loud clunk going from 2nd to 1st, wth?

I got this pickup recently not running for just $200 and was able to get it going pretty well after fixing the ignition and doing a number of other needed repairs. The only major concern I still have with it is this metallic clunking noise during downshift from 2nd to 1st. It often is good only if I've just come off the freeway, but other than that every time i come to a stop I can hear it. I think it's a problem with the torque converter still being in lockup during this gear change. If I pull the valve body, what do I do or look for?

i was wondering if someone could help me out, i have a 97 chevy s10 when i drive to work in the morning my tranny shifts funny it seems to go into gear fine but sometimes i"ll run 70 at 2500 rpm and then usually it runs 3000 rpm in the afternoon but sometimes it don"T matter if its morning or night. Also when i stand outside my truck i can hear what sounds like a vacuum leak and sounds like its coming right from above the gas tank

#207 of 324 2000 S/10 Blazer 4x4 shift issue
Oct 29, 2009 (7:56 pm)
Vehicle has been sitting for about two months. I backed out of garage and seemed fine. Drove about 10 miles and went to accelerate and it downshifted and heard some kind of "clunk" type noise. I slowed down and all seemed to be fine. Stopped to clean vehicle and found that it would not go into reverse. It also now seems to "wind out" from 1st to 2nd gear. Still no reverse. Fluid smells good, it's red and full when hot. The only other other info that may help, is it did have a dead battery after sitting for a while. It was jump started and let it run for awhile to charge battery. Truck sat for another 2-3 weeks, when I went to pick it up, it started up fine. That's when I backed out of the garage and had these other issues. PLEASE HELP !!!!!! Oh yea, I did put it in 4x4 and tried to back up and that didn't work either. HELP!!!!!!

I have a 2000 sonoma that seems to be leaking fuel. At least it smells alot like it. Can't find any injectors leaking. I'm at a loss as to what it is. Sometime a small amount of smoke will appear when at a light and then it's gone. Can anyone out there suggest anything?
#209 of 324 1991 Chevy S-10 Tahoe Edition Slave Cylinder
Dec 07, 2009 (2:38 pm)
The clutch in my truck is leaking hydraulic fluid somewhere in it. I've taken it to a mechanic, who believes the slave cylinder is leaking. The price of fixing this, assuming it is the problem, depends on where the slave cylinder is located. I've been looking, but cannot find any information. I need to know if the slave cylinder is inside the transmission on this truck, or outside. If it is outside, it will be cheaper, and I want to make sure he doesn't charge me the inside price even if it is outside the transmission. It has a 2.8L V6 engine. Any help would be grateful, thanks.
