SOURCE: 1997 S10 Antilock light comes on
Has there been any break work done to it lately? It could be one of the break sensors malfunctioning. or the abs needs to be reset. I have never tried this, but a friend of mine had a problem somewhat simmler to yours, he took the neg. battery cable off for about 5 minutes and hooked it back up and solved his problem. I can't say that will solve yours but its worth a shot and it don't cost anything.

you need a used trans, or a rebuild, but dont let a rebuilder fill you full of ****, all you need is the reverse drum, and possibly some clutches. the teeth on the reverse drum strip off, and thats when you lose reverse.

It's probably an accurate accessment. This is a Classic case of how one part damages another.
When the engine misfires it clogs the Catalytic converters. Sometimes the Catalytic converter can repair itself through miles of driving with a well tuned engine. But it may be damaged beyond repair and needs to be replaced after the engine is tuned up. Time will tell.
You can not expect the engine to idle smoothly when the sensors for the Catalytic converters are trying to lean out the engine. The Catalytic converters are indicating they are full of unburned fuel and are running way too rich so the engine controls set everything lean. You have poor idle and lack of power because of this.
You need to find out why the engine is misfiring. The better and more costly Scanners have a Diagnostic priority program to suggest the most probable cause of the problem, then the next, and so on. By process of elimination the problem is found. You need this type of scan.
Autozone, Oreilys, and Advance will give a free scan, but they need to use the better Scanners to prioritize your defets.
You may have dirty fuel injectors in addition to spark misfiring issues. But usually the Scan would show individual cylinders that are getting too much fuel. So be aware that once you start making repairs, the now overwhelmed onboard computer can start pinpointing more problems.
You next move is to start checking the parts the scanner says is defective.

Check the fluid level of the transmission. Check fluid quality. It should be red in color and smell clean. If it's dark and has a burnt odor, your transmission is slipping and is on it's way out.
