Look about 1/2-3/4 way up side of transmission for a square plug (5/8" wrench works if I recall correctly) Stick finger in hole to first joint, if oils there, it's o.k. if not fill until it touches tip of finger. I'm guessing that's not the problem, but let us know how it goes.

How do I replace a power steering gear box in 1971 chevy c10


In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

What engine size do i have? chevy 1968 c10 vin


Check this website and double check your vin number to see if its correct. That way you can determine what you have for your engine sixze. If your engiune number had CE at the very beginning it would be a replacement Crate Engine. Yours is not a crate engine replacement as far as I can tell from the numbers you posted

Have 1999 Ford Expedition xlt. My gear indicator is messed up, When I am in drive, it shows 2, when i am in park it shows reverse.


This comes straight from the repair manual..
1. Remove the upper steering column cover.
2. Put the shifter in drive position.
3. Move the shift lever clockwise until it stops (all the way to first gear position, then move it back two detent positions to the Drive position.
4. Hang an a weight (something) with 8 pounds of weight on the lever to hold it in place.
5. Center the indicator neddle in the middle of drive position.
6. Rotate the thumbwheel on the bottom of the steering column to remove all slack from the indicator cable.

1978 Chevy c10 pick up v8 350 my truck keep die even wen i chang gears i replace the fuel pump and check the spark pulges and check the vacuum it was good


Manual/automatic?? If automatic your torque convertor is probably going bad or your clutch packs in the tranny. If manual your clutch is gripping too much or not releasing properly

Where do i put oil in my 1978 Chevy C10 pickup


If there's no oil cap directly on one of the valve covers (it may have a breather hose attached which connects to the breather element in the breather pan), then some models require adding oil through the dipstick. If this is the case, there should be a cap type dipstick instead of the standard "hook". There are 6 different motors (8 including variations) for your truck so no manual has the exact location of the oil cap. Best of luck and hope I answered your question.
