:confused: i have a 1995 s-10 x-cab no mod's yet. The other day i was driving home from work and i hit a bump my back end jump's up and then BAM...... my drive shaft had fallen off. I tow it to a shop then they tell me that my shaft bent so i pay 200 buck's for a new one but now when im driving and i hit 30 mph it start's to make this noise like if im dragging a chain it's loud and it goe's away at 45 mph and during that time i loose alot of hp.
B-4 that had happend i was doing low 19 high 18's in the 1/4 now my best is 20 sec (i think im the slowest car out there):(.
but any way's i was wondering what you guy's might think it is
thank's in advance.

Check the fluid in your tranny. If the drive shaft came out of it when it droped it could have lost quite a bit and possably wasnt refilled when the new shaft was put in.

Since that happend it also had this thing.......that if it's hot out side and i drive around for like say 45 min my clutch start's to squeek and get's really hard im not sure what that is also. I dont really know if that has anything to do with the drive shft but it all happend around the same time so i think so.
thank's in advance

Could be the drive shaft being out of balance

I know I'm making an appt to the dealer due to several things going wrong.
1) Air bag light coming on and off
2) Starting problems (see post)
3) Buzzin/chain dragging sound in 4th gear
4) vibration around 75-80 mph
5) door molding leaking

I'm sure I'll think of others

Good luck

is your truck still under warranty?

No my truck is not under warrantyanymore:( but I am taking my truck to the shop on sat. I would have taken it today, but i just put in some 40 series flowmaster with a down pipe it's not 2 loud yet but i heard that they have to brake-in or something or other so cant wait. Well thank's for all your help I will let him know what I think it is and i will keep you posted.

Another question would a 98 pontiac formula rearend fit on to my truck???.......my very good friend said if it fit's i can have his( he wrecked his car ) just thought i should ask thank's again.
