Main indications are oil leaks at the hub bearing, loose hub on the shaft, engine temp rising at stop lights , in slow traffic or with high engine rpms ( going up hill in low gear
if the temp rises when stationary but cools down when road speed is achieved then the hub is faulty

On my 95 chevy surburban the park/signal light is blinking fast

Have you checked all the bulbs (rear as well as front)?

The fast dash turn signal indicator is telling you one of the lamps is faulty. Check all of them and you will most likely find your problem.

95 gmc sierra k1500 4x4 5spd manual noise

the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

I replaced my water pump and thermostat and the tempature gage censor but my 95 camaro over heats when it idles but not when i drive it

Check to see if you have an electric fan on your radiator or a fan that is mounted to the engine and turns off the the pulley system. If you have an electric fan, when the car heats up at idle, turn you AC on and see if the electric fan comes on. If it does then you have a sensor bad. You have 2 sensors one tells the guage what to register and the other one tells the electric fan when to come on. If you have a fan mounted to the engine then the clutch part of the fan is probably bad. Yopu can buy this seperate and don't have to buy the whole assembly. Most of the v-8's have fans mounted to the motor and most of the v-6's have electric fans but I have seen some with electric fans only. Please let me know if this helped, I am curious to hear the outcome.

1994 Toyota 4Runner Overheating

I had the same problem - my 95 4Runner would overheat in 4WD only, and coolant would bubble out and spill over.

The problem turned out to be with the rear heater tubes and the fan clutch - my mechanic bypassed the rear heater tubes and I have no more problems. Not exactly sure why this helped. To replace the rear heater tubes, it would've cost $325, but to bypass cost $75. Most people don't even really use the heat in the back seat.

The second part of the problem, and most important, was the fan clutch needed to be replaced. At low speeds, it wasn't kicking in when it should have been, only working at higher speeds. Once I replaced the fan clutch and the bypassed the rear heater tubes, all has been well.

Hope this helps!!

Fan cluth or fan assembly

I have a 2004 trailblazer and it keeps over heating at stop lights or while driving slow. I have replaced the thermostat and water pump, but this issue still shows up. It is fine while driving down the highway at 55-65 mph. I have also cleaned the radiator and blew through the fins to clean out the dirt and bugs. Not sure if clutch is operating correctly. How can one tell if it is and are these electric? I know there are approx 5 wires running to the front of the clutch, but not sure if this gets a voltage signal to engage the clutch fan. Any ideas?
