Question about 1986 Chevrolet K1500

1994 Chevy 1500 4x4 will not drive in Reverse

Hey, appreciate if somone could give some insight into this situation. My truck (above) has all other forward gears, even 4wd - but will not drive in reverse - either in 4wd or 2wd. Well, it drives a little in reverse when it wants to, but almost feels as though something is slipping? Before it went completely out, there seemed a hesitation before the truck engaged into reverse gear. I checked the transmission fluid and it was fine. Help...Tnx

    Thanks, assume that mean a trans rebuild? Would it be cheaper just to put a rebuilt trans in or try to fix the reserved clutches / rebuild this one?

    A rebuilt unit or having yours rebuilt should be the same.

Do you drive in overdrive all the time or 3rd/1994 chevy 1/2 ton shortbed/6 cyl


Hi and welcome to FixYa!
It's not wise to drive on overdrive everytime. When you are cruising that's when OD should beused.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Cant shift? reverse grinds? and pressure in clutch is low


What you describe sounds very much like the clutch is failing to disengage.
Fluid level being fine and no leaks under the car is good, but doesnt mean there isnt something wrong with either the master cylinder, slave cylinder, or the associated parts.

Highly unlikely there is a fault with the flywheel or clutch as failures with these would normally give no drive in any gear.

I have a 1994 Chevy S10 Blazer bad reverse


The odds of two different transmissions having the same problem in reverse is astronomical. I think your problem is in the differential. Also check for the proper fluids and additives in the differential.

Chevy S/10 headlights


headlights are on a circuit breaker--not a fuse. so if you have a high amp draw situation--the breaker will get hot and turn the lights out then cool off and reconnect(a safety feature so you may have headlights a least part of the time). You need to look for reasons for a high draw. bad headlights themselves are the most popular cause as well as corroded connecters. Hope I helped

Chevy s10 brake caliper


Hey zach, no they are not reverse thread. They are most likely just very tight from the heat and cool cycles they go thru. Put your wrench on them and give it a few sharp raps with a ball peen hammer. That should break them loose enough to finish with the wrench.
