Question about 1995 Chevrolet K1500

1 Answer

Something is locking in when cold out

The first time I drive my truck on a cold day (below zero) when backing or pulling straight out of a spot something locks in. It feels like the brakes come on and almost bring me to a stop. I was thinking maybe it was the ABS? I know the front wheel bearings need to be replaced could it be them? Once it locks up I can shift it into four wheel drive and then get moving and once i go about a block pull it out of 4x4 and it goes just fine. The thing that gets me is that it only happens when it is cold out. If you can figure this one out thanks a million.

ABS modules tend to have problems on vehicles.

Do a search for ABS module repair for a place in Russia, IA who rebuilds them. They have a troubleshooting page that you can use to help you figure out the problem, and they also repair modules to include a 5 year warranty.

I have a 2005 suzuki ferenza and wont come out of park and cant get key to go to lock position so cant get key out but i can if i unhook the battery?


This happened to me numerous times... there is a little spot by the shifter - it says "shift lock" something like that.... Push a key or something that fits in that hole and it will release. I had to drive around with a mini screwdriver forever and "unlock" that each time and one day it just stopped locking. The key also gets stuck and wont turn when the steering wheel is in the wrong position... (??) turn it back and forth as much as you can - that sometimes releases it as well.

How to change light on front day time lights


Open the hood. Pull up on the retaining pins that hold the headlamp assembly into place.
2 Pull straight up on the headlamp assembly carefully, as all of the bulb wiring will be attached to the rear of the assembly.3 Locate the DRL bulb in the headlamp assembly, which will may be the socket at the inboard position in the assembly.4 Turn the DRL bulb socket in a counterclockwise direction and pull it straight out of the back of the headlamp assembly. (Note: Some vehicles may utilize a release lever that needs to be depressed before the socket can be turned.) 5 Pull the DRL bulb straight out of the socket and discard it. Push a fresh bulb into its place until it is fully seated.6 Push the socket back into the rear of the headlamp assembly and turn it in a clockwise direction until it locks into place.7 Place the headlamp assembly back into position on the front of the vehicle. Push the retaining pins back down until they lock into place.

I have a 1990 4runner with 214,000 on the motor. I have recently replaced the plugs, wires, cap, and rotar. When the truck is cold and not warmed up yet it stalls out on me. I start it and it idles high in...


probably the IAC, not usually the TPS, have you replaced the fuel filter? it could be a problem with the new wires, yes they may be new, but there is always a chance it is faulty, kind of sounds like a misfire. It could also be the spark plugs. or possibly you have them plugged the number 1 wire into the wrong spot on the distributor

Wheels locking up when turning sharply left or right


Could be one of several problems in the rear diff.
It depends if its the optional locking rear diff and it's stuck locked, or it is the limited slip and something inside caused it to lock.

See a mechanic before you do more damage.

Just took my 74 450sl out of storage..the power steering pump was low on fluid..filled it and I noticed that the car is pulling to the right...to drive straight down the road the steering wheel is cocked...


check ur tire pressures-when cars sit for very long periods of time,they also develop flat spots in tires if not driven-check suspension and tires first,doubt "air lock" is causing this
