Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Excessive shaking, lack power

98 s10 truck, 4 cyl, 2 wheel dr, manual trans, 140k miles, replaced motor 3 years ago, replaced fuel pump 18 months ago, gets very poor gas milage ( feels like less than 15mil/Gal). Starts O.K., but I am fearful of driving it because of the shaking and general increased noise and lack of power went giving gas.

My 2007 GMC Yukon has 120,000 miles. Recently, I noticed that when driving the vehicle, the RPM do not drop, or reset, as the car accelerates. Instead, the faster the car goes, the higher the rpm's go,...

You have a failed transmission that will have to be
rebuilt or replaced with Reman

The flair in the rpm & gear change issues, should
have been the clue

How does that happen on a 7 year old vehicle ?

You fail to change your transmission & power steering
fluids every three years & those items that should last
15 years & 150,000 or possibly more, are given a death

Trans fluid breaks down from heat in about two years &
like all fluids the additive packages are used up

Brake Fluid --every 2 years
Spark Plugs --every 3 years or they wear & stress the
ignition system

Motor Oil-well-you do as you please

I change mine 3 times a year,which is about 4,000
When we worked-four times a year

I have a 2014 vehicle that I got in march
Changed the oil this Monday at 711 miles
WHY- it has been in there 4 months (remember
3 times a year) BUT --i keep my vehicles 18 years

I have one that I have had 30 years

The trans fluid --I will be doing soon
WHY- because I once owned a trans shop
& know what wears & when

Most wear,you ask-yep-the first thousand miles
& this vehicle has NO Filter,just a screen

Shaking when driving. bought new tires in front 18 months ago. bought the car 3 years ago it was already lowered bought back tires six months ago had alighned two months ago started shaking after and tires...

get under the vehicle (use ramps) and check all linkages for movement pull push on the anti roll bar links, pull push on steering rack and pinion and linkages, any excessive movement, jack each wheel at a time, using a bar check the lower wishbone joints for movement, get the bar in the gap between the wishbone and lower part of the shock. and pull down, if any movement in ball joint up and down replace. while wheel on vehicle check for movement in bearing you will feel a tiny amount not much but pull and push on wheel with opposite hands on 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock and do the same at 9 and 3. now with both wheels off the ground but with the tyres still on, have some one holed one wheel and push pull on wheels each side there should be even movement between both wheels, if everything is fine with the the steering linkages and this dose not feel or sound right then this could be the problem also to add if the inside and out side of the tyres are wearing then the tyre pressure is wrong and needs adjusting to the right tyre pressure .

I'm choosing between a 97 Dakota and a 97 Ranger. both are around 140k miles, 5 speed, 4 cylinder, base 2 person models. Same starting price. Which one do you think will cost less to operate and be more...

The ford ranger has less problems,and is easier to work on,and easy to diagnose ,when it does have problems,but for the most part the ranger ,all the way.Ranger does not have a lot of power,but is a very good truck.

95 Blazer trans noise

Its best to just drive it until it quits, you got yourself an exceptional blazer, start messen with trans. now i think would be a mistake, take the mechanics advise, drive it, and enjoy it for as long as you can. Consider yourself luckey most people don't get half that milage before the trans. has to be replaced or rebuilt.

We have a 2001 Chevy Impala as well.  About 3 months ago, we encountered the same symptoms.  The catalytic converter was bad and had to be changed out.  The cost, for a universal catalytic converter, was about $300 but this fixed the problem.  I hope this helps.
