  1. S10 / S15
    Hey guys this is my first post I've had two s10s now both first gens. I have very little mechanic experience but I'm trying to teach myself and this truck apparently is really great to do it on. I am good with my hands and mechanically inclined, just not working on vehicles. I was hit by a truck...
  2. S10 / S15
    I'm about to tackle some exhaust work on my '91 S10 pickup using a cheapo $100 Harbor Freight welder. It's a beater, not a restoration, so it doesn't need to look pretty; MIG would be preferable of course but flux core is what I've got. So my question: is the OEM cat stainless? I can't imagine...
  3. Exhaust
    I currently have a 2002 4.3L V6 LS Ext. Cab that was modded with dual exhaust. I want to move it back to the the original single exhaust as the second pipe is starting to rust through; however, I am not sure of the best place to find the original parts.

    2000 S-10 Zr2 4.3 V6. Engine bogs down at highway speeds (60-70 mph) usually when getting on the on ramp. Engine act like it goes into a safe mode, where there is no power (like misfire) then after a few seconds it corrected and then runs OK but at a higher RPM. Other than that truck runs fine...
  8. Electrical / Lighting
    Okay so last night I fixed an exhaust leak on the s10 and now it is running rough, the idle seems to be a little jacked up and when you try to drive it is seems to die. I have recently fixed the timing issue or so I thought and had put a band-aid on the exhaust leak which odviously didn't work...
  9. Exhaust
    I'm a little confused on what Y pipe with cat I need for my S10 I've got a 2001 S10 with a 4.3L, manual trans., RWD, regular cab and a long bed. I see a few different ones but I'm not sure if the long bed matters or not. I'm not looking for anything fancy, just something that fits. Can someone...
