Okay.. I am having some problems with shifting gears, It always goes from 1st to 5th gear. Is there any way I can rearrange the gear pattern on my s10?

It looks like you don't have a body lift, so I can't imagine why you're having problems. To my knowledge, there is no way to change the shift pattern without changing the entire transmission. Nice lift BTW.

Is it a trans problem or is you shifter hitting the sheetmetal of your floor? I don't know anything about S10 trannys but in my zuk there was a bolt from the stick that holds the shift forks, it wore a groove in the shaft and the shifter was sloppy. Pull the boot and shifter and take a look at the shift forks if everything checks out in might be internal. Also check the condition of your trans and motor mounts, a torn or bent one might throw the drivetrain out of whack and cause some problems.

sorry guys i apologize. The person who started this thread was my sister, she got that pic from a file on my computer labeled "SFA info" where i have all the pics/info that will help me with my SAS saved. She said something about her shifting from 1st to 5th gear, thats because the first time she drove my truck she went to shift from 1st to 2nd, and got nearvous and shifted into 5th, so it is possible. Sorry about all this, it should be closed by a mod.

Sorry about the silly subject you guys, I was just playing around, but my question was serious.. because I would love to know how to change the gear pattern on an s10 because i don't like the arrangement of the shifter.. it confuses me. and i would like to get an old s10 someday to go out and beat up and get it as muddy as possible! LoL.. so you all don't think theres any way to change the gear pattern?:stupid:

The shift pattern is the same as 90% of vehicles with 5 speeds, excluding VW's and some other foreign cars.

How the fuck would you be able to shift gears with a shift pattern like that?

Sounds like a challenge. I bet it wouldn't be too hard to make a tranny shift in that pattern. Not a S-10 tranny. But one with external shifting levers and a custom linkage. Not that it'd be a good idea. I just think it'd be doable.

And yes, stay out of WV.
