#10 of 87 Chevy s10 Bad vibration
Feb 07, 2008 (4:07 pm)
I own a 2000 s10 extreme
it has a bad vibration in all speeds
i checked the U joints and they seem tight to me
and it has a fresh tranny rebuild
i raised the rear of the truck to check the rear end
on the passenger side of the truck i can grab the tire and it moves in and out anywhere from an eighth to a quarter inch
the drivers side is tight
Does this mean the axle bearing on the inside needs replaced and could this be the cause of the vibration?

I'd say it's a good bet. Usually along with the symptoms you mentioned you would hear a roaring sound, unless the noise is drowned out with mud tires.

Iam having the same proplem with my '96 S-10 and a friend told me it is the carrier bearing(the part where the 2 shafts come together right under the floor boards and seats.It is very annoying and a little scary sometimes,good luck..
#13 of 87 Rear end vibration in Sonoma
Apr 03, 2008 (3:21 pm)
I just bought a 2003 GMC Sonoma and it had a constant vibration when I tested it. The dealer replaced the u-joints and hanger bearing and had the shaft extension put in and balanced. That seems to have reduced the vibration considerably however, I still have a vibration when accelerating from a stop and it is slightly detectable at under 100 KPH. That's about 50 MPH. The rear end was lubed as well. Any suggestions?">
#14 of 87 Fuel pump problems

I have a 93 GMC Sonoma 2.8ltr, and i have no power from the grey wire to my fuel pump. i have tested the wire from the fuel pump relay, and i have power. i have been told that it is the oil pressure switch. i was also wondering if anyone knows where i can find the fuse box diagram online. If anyone has any info please email me at richardKoonhotmail.com

The gray wire from the relay goes to the fuel pump. On the way to the pump the gray wire connects with the pressure switch wire.
I would suspect where they connect, most logical is at the switch. If the pressure switch has one wire on one side and 2 wires on the other, the 2 is the connection. If not, good luck looking.
The pressure switch has nothing to do with your current problem except the 2 wire connection.

well i was driving up a hill and when i stopped at the light and went to take off as soon as i let off the clutch and gave it gas it died and would not start. when i pulled it to a nearby parking lot i smelled burned wires. so far ive trace the fuel pump relay, replace the pump and sending unit. the only thing i havent replaced is the oil pressure switch. and from what i understand like i said before it works as a shut off for the fuel pump.

i know that on the pump there is a purple wire(to the fuel gauge) and a grey wire(to the pump). the oil pressure switch is right next to the oil filter, its sticking out so you cant miss it lol.but i think im going to replace it and see if that fixes the problem if not its one of the wires coming from the switch, i just wish i had a diagram. or knew which fuse in the fuse box works the fuel pump....anyone know?

Have no information for a 93 fuses, no decal on the cover. On the later ones the pump fuse is ECMB.
