From the way you describe this, I am assuming this is an automatic transmission. Sounds like clutch packs are shot and the trans needs rebuilt or replaced.

Would a 4.88 ring and pinion gear lower my speed too low for street driving for my '93 chevy s-10 2.8 engine 2 WD w/a 5 speed manual transmission?


normal street diff ratios are in the 3:1 or 3.5: ratios as these give best performance speed and economy
fitting that ratio will give a lower top speed and may affect the economy as it makes the engine seem more powerful so less throttle is need for take off
it also will have higher rpms at your normal driving speed
(example -- normal ratio --60 mph 3000 rpms new ratio 60 mph-- 3250 rpms )
the speedo reading will be out as well enough to get into trouble with speed cameras
if you are not a led foot and take you time in traffic it will be just a bit slower
the only real way is to try it and see if you like the result

1986 Alfa Romeo Spyder. WHen stopped, speedometer shows about 12 mph. At highway speed, it shows about 20 mph. Odomater seems fine.


Phylspilot, my 86 Spider never displayed less than 10 mph. If you look closely, you should see a tiny pin that the needle touches at about 10 mph. That prevents it from ever falling to zero. The needle will not move up until the speed exceeds 10. From my experience, that is normal. In your case, not displaying >20 is NOT normal.

The problem could be a few different things. Since the odometer appears to be working ok (I assume you checked that it racks up the miles at a rate commensurate with your approx speed), the speed needle may be sticking. I had the opposite problem with mine - speed needle okay, and odometer messed up.

I recommend pulling the speedometer housing out of the dash and checking to see if anything is causing the needle to bind. If it isn't, then check the fine spring where the needle is attached to ensure the spring is okay. You should be able to move the needle with your finger smoothly and have it return gently to the start position (in your case 12 mph).

This is a tricky operation. If you remove the needle from the stem, carefully place it back on the stem. Do this without moving the stem. Just reinsert the speed needle on the stem exactly at the small pin that holds the pin at about 10 mph.

Check the entire speedometer housing for cracks. Any crack could be enough to prevent proper operation. (That was the source of my odometer issue.)

Have fun putting it all back together.

Transmission shifts early (Is this normal?)


the reason it might be shifting so early is because of the gear ratio in the rear end of the truck. it is common in the 2 wheel drive basic model pickup because they were designed to work not travel.
