sonoma

  1. S10 / Sonoma
    Hey everyone I need help and have searched the forums but cant find any direct answers for my situation. Ok so first off I'm building a off road tracked vehicle and I've bought a 2002 sonoma with the 4.3 for my engine. So it will crank over start for 2 seconds and shut off (passkey yes I know)...
  2. Exhaust
    While in the process of replacing a broken exhaust manifold, we encountered this pipe that we cannot identify but think we are going to have to replace too, as it seems the old manifold's bolts are too rusted. It is connected to the manifold tubes and runs farther back into the truck. Anyone...
  3. Transmission & Rearend
    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...
  4. 262ci Forum (4.3)
    I just got a 97’ Sonoma 4.3 auto 4x4 flatbed. It was originally owned by Disney in Orlando. My friend bought it from them and has barely used it over the years. It has just under 9,000 miles on it. Yes, 9,000. I just got the truck today and when I turn the key in the on position, I can’t hear...
  5. S10 / Sonoma
    My 2000 Sonoma zr2 with a 4.3 has a blown head and I already have another engine lined up for it. I have been told that I will have to drop the front diff and I was wondering if there is a way around this? and just all together what is the best way to pull it.
  6. Electrical / Lighting
    Hey everyone, I just joined this forum and am in need of some ideas. A few months back I managed to get my hands on a "barn find" 1997 GMC Sonoma SLT stepside that somebody has installed a smallblock chev 400ci v8 into with an aftermarket 3 speed transmission (its a 'transco' if anybody has...

  9. Syclone / Typhoon / Sonoma GT
    So I’m thinking about selling my Sonoma GT but I honestly don’t know what it’s worth. It’s running good and has close to 100,000 miles now. It has been repainted by a previous owner. Sorry I don’t have any more pics at the moment but interior is kinda rough cracks on dash and what not.
  10. Steering & General Suspension
    I have a 94 Sonoma chassis that I am working on. The frame is away for blasting and a paint job so I cant measure the in-frame shackle bushing size. For the spring ( 3+1) both eyes measure 2" ID. Most info I have found suggests that if both eyes are the same size then the eyes should be...
  11. Electrical / Lighting
    So I prematurely made a post thinking I solved my issues with not working wipers after seeing the start side of the ignition switch is what should deliver power to abs and fuse 17 (washer/wiper) Power. But after replacing my ignition switch and being down another $80 the issue has not resolved...

  14. S10 / Sonoma
    What up S10 community, after reading various forums and searching all over the web, I decided to add to the list of troubleshooting the horn on my 1996 GMC Sonoma that was not working. After testing the horns, fuses and relays and they were good... I narrowed the problem to a issue within...
  15. S10 / S15
    Okay I'm having a huge issue trying to locate mag lug nuts for my American racing wheels. The stock studs are to short for the rims the. So I was thinking mag lugs will work well I found one and I can not find anymore anywhere. So instead I thought that I can put extended studs and use normal...
  16. 2.2L - 2nd gen 4-banging
    I’ve got a 1995 GMC Sonoma sls with 2.2L 4 banger. I just replaced my clutch, flywheel, throw out bearing, and clutch fork release. 1st and second are perfect. But if I get to about 25mph it startes shaking. Faster I go worse it gets. Anything helps.
