SOURCE: 1987 gmc s15 2.8 litre. Clutch only goes half way

I don't know that specific vehicle, but if its a hydraulic clutch it sounds like either you have a leak and your clutch fluid is low, or the master or slave cylinder could be bypassing internally. Check the fluid level in your clutch master cylinder. If its low, you should top it off with brake fluid and will probably have to bleed the system. Also look for leaks. You can probably find info or a video online of how to bleed the system. Its a bit hard to explain without illustrations or pictures. Not really very difficult to perform. Good luck.

SOURCE: replace u joint on GMC S15 pickup

You'll need a bench vice for this. A few sockets help as well. Once you get the shaft off the truck, put a smaller diameter socket on one side and a much larger diameter socket on the other and sandwich in a vice. Compress vice to drive the U-Joint through shaft (smaller socket will drive the one side through the other with the much larger socket). Installation is the reverse of removal.

Remove the wheel on that side. Remove the motor mount bolts and jack up the engine. You will be able to get it out.

SOURCE: where is the oil pressure sending unit on a 1987

  • You should have two of them (which went to one in think 1991 or 1992)

  • The sensor by the distributor is for the oil pressure gauge - see pic below.

My thermostat went bad on my 1987 GMC Jimmy S15 classic. We have changed the thermostat but the gauge still reads 260 degrees. Is there a reset button?


No there are no reset buttons on any of the guages. Does it read 260 always? if so try taqpping on it lightly and if it still is stuck, replace thye guage.
