SOURCE: 2001 GMC Sonoma Extended Cab door handle broken

if the door can not be opened by pulling on the latch rods from where the handle is located with a pair of pliers then the inner door panel will have to be removed to gain access to the latch rods to open the door and then replace the handle. the only bad part of that is the inner door panels normally do not come off in once pice that is able to be reinstalled without being cracked or completly broken. sorry for the bad news.

SOURCE: broken hood release cable. Can't open hood

this is a hard one it depends on where it broke,can you cut the housing to get to cable core and pull with pleirs, if it snapped at latch then you will need to remove the grill or go from the bottom and try to hit the release the same wat the cable did,sometime if you grab the cable near the latch and pull hard it will open, good luck.

1995 GMC SONOMA makes a loud sqeaking noise when i take off in the first to third gear, after third gear it stops, but when i get to a stop sighn it starts all back over, loud noise.

This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.

It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.
