    1997 s10 4.3l vortec. Having some intermittent problems with this thing. Occasionally when I start the truck the idle takes off to around 1700-2000 rpms and slowly increases on its own. While it's doing this, pressing the pedal will not cause it to drop nor will the brake. It's also popping...

    Hi everyone! I just recently bought a 1988 S-10 with a locked up 2.8L V6 and a 700R4 in it as my first vehicle. I've stripped out the drivetrain, torn the engine down, and found that it was a bottom-end oiling failure that killed it. Connecting rod 2 had let go completely and stopped up the...

    So, I decided to make this just to get people's opinions. I love this S10 that I bought as a project, but now I'm really confronting its main problem, the frame. it's in a state where besides the rotten frame it would be a good drivable vehicle, but after going in with a hammer on it, I don't...
