  1. S10 / S15
    I started the truck with the AC on cold and blower motor off. When running I switched it to hot and the blower motor on 4. After that a loud squealing/ rattling noise now is present when the truck is running only. Unplugged blower motor and sound still occur. When only power on not running with...
  2. S10 / Sonoma
    I've been looking around for wheel spacers but I keep seeing comments about them fitting the rear but not the front or visa-versa. I'm trying to get a set of 4 for both rear and front but I'm not sure what to look for. If anyone can give me the sizes for the rear and front then I could order...
  3. S10 / Sonoma
    I bought my first car and S10 a couple weeks back. The guy told me there was an oil leak but I bought it anyway, I figured I'd fix it, even though I've never worked on a car before. The starter seems to have some oil leaking on it as well the oil pan? (does that make sense? it's a big gray box...

    Anyone know a good shop in the Seattle/ NW area that will lift my rwd s10? I get most won’t do it for liability issues but I just like the way lifted trucks look and feel. Any tips on doing it myself? Thanks. 1998 Chevrolet S10 Pickup 4.3L V6 Vortec LS 3 Door Extended Cab

    I have a 1989 S10 Tahoe, regular cab long bed with the 4.3 V6. When I turn the Headlights on along with the dash lights for night driving I experience a headlight and dash light flicker when I turn the HighBeams on. It’s quite consistent and I’m looking for any solution such as ground locations...

    I have a 1993 s10 4.3 4x4 and I can start it up just fine and it’ll run for about 5-10 minutes then it starts to idle really high and about 10 seconds later it shuts off and won’t crank back up unless I give it about 20-30 minutes to cool down. Doesn’t run hot all gauges look fine. Has brand new...

    Good evening S10 lovers. So I have this annoying ticking noise almost coming from my steering column or from behind the buttons used to enable/disable the headlights. It seems to get more annoying when I shake the steering wheel slightly left and right fast. It does not affect driving at all...

    I have an 03 s10 and about 5 months ago I heard a horrible knock while turning left, me and my dad came to the conclusion that is was the rear end, so when we pulled the rear end apart we found that the carrier bearings were looser than a (insert slur here) on $3 saturday, so we replaced them...

    So this might be a dumb question, but I’ve exhausted all of my internet search options. I want to cam my 2.8 s10, but I don’t know someone that can tune something this old. So I basically want to run a self leading EFI setup on a carb manifold. What exactly do I need to do to make this happen?
  14. S10 / S15
    Hi everybody, I recently put some 31x10.5x15 tires on my 83 4x4 s10. They drive fine on the road, but more aggressive offroading causes a lot of rubbing. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good lift kit? I don't want anything crazy, 2-2.5 inches at most...from what I've been seeing I...
  15. S10 / S15
    Hey! I’m currently in the process of replacing the 2.8 v6 in my 1985 s10 Tahoe edition. The engine went bad, and I got a donor 2.8 from a 1987. I have the new engine in and hooked up, but when I turn the key the engine starts cranking like normal but after a few seconds it slows down and...

    First off I’m not sure if I’m posting in the correct place, but I’d like to share a solution I found. I’ve got a 1991 S10 2.5 5 speed, and the throttle cable rusted up and broke. The only throttle cables I could find for it were wrong, one end had a ball and the other end had a hole, the...

    So I recently got a 1998 Sonoma SLS, 2.2l with the 5-speed with 250k miles. I really like this truck. Rides smooth, runs and drives like it's got 1/4 of that milage (Was a gift from my uncle who has owned it since he bought it off the lot in 97 and he's not able to drive a stick anymore due to...
