I've posted here before, and I've done some things to my s10 since then. But I just did a huge project on my dime. I had a small leak in my oil pan and didn't know it. I ran it completely out of oil and blew my motor up. So I found a dime motor from a junk yard with 10,000 miles on it which is really good it replaced mine which had 115,000 so it was a good buy I only have 700$ bucks for it which is really good. But anyway I got it to work and everything but today out of no where my Gas, Speed, and Temp Gauge stopped working I'm very confused to why it just randomly stopped working I check all the connections coming from the motor and everything and the fuses but nothing seems to fix the problem. Has anyone ever come across this problem before (1999 s10 2.2) If any one would get back to me that would be a great help because at the moment I don't like to drive it not knowing how much gas is in it and well not knowing how fast I'm moving doesn't help with the 5-0. So any sugguests would be a great help thanks guys/females

I've given up I checked the grounds and fuses nothing was blown. So I'll called a dealership and they are going to look at it on Wednesday so hopefully if will get fixed.

But I still have one problem. My truck is acting like it's backfiring so I changed the spark plugs and wires. I also read on a post here that some people changed the TPS and that didn't help either any body have any other ideas??

The dealership found the problem. The main wires where touching the excaust and it burned right through them. Now my baby is running better than before.... I love my Dime hahahahahasa
