98 Sonoma project

Hey guys. Figure I’ll post in here since I’m not a new member but I don’t post much. Girlfriend Picked me up a 98 gmc Sonoma reg cab short bed 5spd 2.2 has100k. To replace my 2000 s10 extended cab 4.3L 5 spd that got totaled on me. Unfortunately. Sad day. Anyway Sweet little Sonoma clean no rust or rot. Was a crank no start deal. Started tearing into it. Turns out to be a bad headgasket. Pulled it apart checked the head turns out to be to out of spec to resurface. So that’s where I am with the truck now. Any recommendations for where to get a reman head from ? Thanks guys I’ll post some pictures. Hopefully I can get it on the road soon so I can start doing other stuff to it lol.

Surprisingly the body is clean and frame. Prefect candidate for a nice little project street / track toy.

Alright guys got a remained head from rock auto. Plus a few other parts to finish up the job. Everything went back together beautifully. Bleed the coolant system. Went to push the clutch in won’t let put it into gear. Clutch won’t disengage. Checked the clutch master dry. Looks like the slave is leaking have a nice mess around the bell housing. Tired every bleeding process out there to get it to work no luck. Have to pull the trans now. That’s where I am now. Almost ready for the road lol

Re: 98 Sonoma project

There are a lot of threads lately on clutch bleeding. IIRC, you can get both master, slave, and lines, all assembled and pre bled for under $100.


Edit...$116 from Rockauto.

Don’t bleed it like brakes...let it gravity bleed. Cap off,bleeder open.keeping it full the whole time...do not touch the pedal. once it’s gravity bled through,tighten the bleeder,then Pump it gently in short pumps about half way down,not all the way to the floor,..release it,then gravity bleed..do not open the bleeder open when you push the pedal down! A couple of gravity bleeds is all it should need..,then with the bleeder tight you can travel it to the floor,and test clutch operation.

I pull these trucks apart regularly..this is how I do it. If you bleed it like brakes it’ll never feel right,and you risk damaging the clutch master by pushing it’s piston past it’s normal area of travel,and damaging an internal seal...that was a common mistake on old Honda’s back in the day after replacing their crappy rear calipers,..common mistake on these trucks when replacing the clutch as well.
