Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

Chevy S-10 towing ?'s

Hi there, thanks for the quick response. Ok so the current one is just a ball on the bumper. I'am planning on getting a frame mount hitch, but that all depends on if the truck can tow my trailer. The trailer weight is close to 2,800 gutted the way i"m planning on taking it. The drive is from Orlando Fl. to San Diego Ca. 2000 miles roughly. The truck has a 2.2 4cylinder engine and a 5 speed manual trans. and the original shocks in the back. any suggestions will help. Thanks for your time.

Structurly speaking the truck can handle it, it's the engine that worries me, I wouldn't chance it, I suggest you maybe rent a bigger truck to haul it, if you would of have had the 4.3l engine no sweat, hope it helps...

Hi looking buying a 2013 holden colorado LTZ7 thats been used for towing has 85000km what should i look for the reverse sensor keeps going off with nothing behind me?

Hi Matt There are three things that come to mind,
(1) is there a tow ball fitted? some times the sensor will pick this up. Remove tow ball and tongue and try.
(2) has the rear bumper had any damage? A faulty sensor due to damage. Look up under bumper with a good torch.
(3) The connecting socket for the tow vehicle (flat long type) Genuine socket type. In the lid if flipped back there should be a small magnet this tells the tow vehicle computer that there is not a tow vehicle/ trailer being towed. If these three items are all good take your vehicle to a dealer for a diagnostic computer to be plugged into your car. Good luck.

What is the towing capacity of a 1983 chevy 1/2 2wd with a 6 cyl. motor?

Hi, this all depends on what you are towing, and your hitch set up. If you have an approved towing package, it will be rated at 5, 000 lb' If you do not have a tow package and just a hole in the rear bumper with a ball, it should say on your bumper next to the ball the amount of weight you can tow. I have no tow package, but my bumper says I can tow up to 5,000 lb's. Do this, go to the u-haul web site, at and enter the information on your truck and the information that will come up for what you have, your truck, year, model, and make. It will tell you the amount of weight and what set-up you need for your truck. I hope this has helped you.

I believe i have a bent a frame the tire is leaning in towards the car its a chevy blazer 1995 could that be all it is? or does that sound like what the problem is and can u tell me if the upper a frame or...

The extent of damage is literally impossible for any of us to give you an honest diagnosis without seeing it. Have it towed to a local competent shop near you and have them look at it. (sorry)

What is the towing capacity of a 1987 Chevy Silverado R 10 with a 350 engine,700 R4 trany, and two wheel drive?

The 700 R4 is old and not worth towing for it will have problems sooner than later in the overdrive if used. If used do not use the overdrive when towing. 4500 pound capacity is the max weight

Tow bar (mounts) front end of larado

Use the same bolt holes the front bumber uses. You may have to build a bracket that attaches to the frame horns where the bumper mounts and using longer bolts (grade 8) pinch the bumper between the mount and the frame horns. Attach your tow tongue to this mount.

The check balls I put back in were slightly larger. You should be able to get them from any transmission shop or the Chevy dealer. I got my gasket from the Chevy dealer.
