Question about 1995 Chevrolet K1500

Open Question

1998 chevy k1500 when you downshift the compression doesnt slow the truck until a count of six, it should start slowing right away. Also when you are in 1st gear for example and get above a certain rpm, it acts like throttle is stuck and will continue at that rpm for quite some time, if you push in clutch it seems like it will idle down. Replace the throttle position sensor, any ideas?

SOURCE: truck dies when i stop or slow down

this may be the cause, try it and see if it helps, it is a very common cause of problems like yours.
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Won't downshift when passing

Sounds like you have two problems, rough idle from an 89 would indicate mutliple problem possiblilities. Spark plugs, timing chain, injectors, coil pack, vacuum hose corrosion. Start there and if that doesnt solve the idle issue its time for a mechanic or a trade in.

For the no downshift, slow down lol. It could be an out of spec throttle cable. Check to make sure the cables are free and clear of debris and no kinks are present. The throttle linkage should move freely while the engine is off and again while running, be careful here.

Unfortunatly we may have to face the truth the old girl just doesnt have it in her anymore. Take it slow and easy, shes earned it.

My 93 Chevy Suburban k1500 stalls when going through puddles and will not start back up right away. It turns over very.slow after it stalls.

Sounds like exposed wiring possibly on the ignition coil or alternater simillar issues happen when weather pack connectors on vital sensors leak causing the sensors to malfuntion most likely exposed wires though since its not getting solid power to the starter after the stall

Steering problems with my 98 Chevrolet k1500

There is a unit in the steering column called a steering speed sensor. Replace it and all is well. I had to do it on my 1998 Chevy at 140,000 miles and all is good. Have since done it on another 1500 and it corrected its problem too.
