Best advice I can give is stick to what's in it, lot less headaches.

I second Mr. Gonogoís advice. Even if they did interchange without major metal work, it gets complicated with all the electronics. . I donít know if the two will interchange or not.
My neighbor is going through all the headaches on his old truck with changing out the original running gear with other.
Last year I had the trany overhauled on my S-10. I dropped it and put it back up myself to save a few bucks. The transmission shop charged me $550 to put an overhaul kit in it. By the time I got done I had around $600. in it and its been trouble free since.
Good luck. Keep us posted on how it works out.

I have a 1996 S10 with 200,000 miles. The tranny will go into gear and drive down the road about 3/4 mile until the tranny warms up and then it will not go any further. Once it cools off it will do the same thing again. Fluid level is fine and looks and smells clean, but I have not checked the filter yet.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

My guess would be internal leakage, the fluid leaks past most when hot and thin. If it was just the fluid overheating it would go into limp mode and keep going. If it is a 200K with no overhaul, it's time has come.

#61 of 324 Transmission/Clutch and 4 wheel drive problems
Jun 30, 2007 (4:35 pm)
Hi i am writing to ask about my clutch problem first. i recently bought a truck which had a new clutch put in, problem is when i push the clutch(sometimes) it is really hard to get it into first gear and when i try to get into reverse it will grind. i bled the slave cylinder and on other trucks i noticed you can tell at a certain point where the clutch is engaged but it isnt really noticeable on this one.
Also my 4 wheel drive is not working, i can shift it into low gear and it goes into low but front tires arent locked in.
BTW 1995 s10 4.3 TBI 5 speed

If your truck is overheating when not moving my guess would be that the overheating problem is not linked to lowering the truck. If the fluid level is fine remove the radiator cap when it is cool and see if the water is circulating, if not your water pump may be the source of your problems. Another way to see if your water pump is the problem is when you free rev the truck at high RPM's does the temperature drop? My second guess would be the thermostat is sticking closed.
