You'll be ok using needle nose pliers and a tin of wd 40 lube. but don't go too crazy with the stuff as it doesn't really like playing with terminals. but in this case use the straw attachment, for in between the outer casing of the bulb an the inner casing of the socket. leave for a couple of minutes then use the needle nose pliers, grip the casing of the bulb, inner and outer, push the bulb in with the pliers and then twist.

I have a 92 chevy s10 and my front passenger turn signal has went out and soon after my rear driver side turn signal and running light has went out. I have tried swapping the bulbs that work to the ones...

Click on the link.
This is for turn signals. Get at the turn signal switch. See the purple wire, L terminal on top of turn signal switch in diagram, that should go hot with key on, use jumper wire from that terminal to one of the wires on bottom of turn signal switch in diagram, those are, front/rear, left/right turn signals. If the turns signals work properly with the jumper, but, other wise don't, the problem should be the turn signal switch. If it still doesn't work properly, you would have to check wiring circuits.
Sometimes a faulty ground can cause weird problems. Sometimes the bulb doesn't make good contact in the bulb socket? Try putting a little pressure on the bulb in the bulb socket, see if it starts working?

Front signal light not working and rear signal lights flashing fast on 1999 intrigue

Your front turn signal socket is shot. Buy a new one at the dealer for about 30.00. It will fix it. You may be able to clean it and wiggle it to get it to work. But it wont last very long. I had the same problem. Replaced the socket and it is fine. Note: If one side is bad the other side it not far behind. Probably 2 or 3 months it will go also. Good Luck.
