Hi.
You can test the clutch by attempting a wheel spin. If you raise the revs then drop the clutch in 2nd - you should get a **** of acceleration or possibly a stall. If you just get a gradual acceleration with possibly a "bite" when moving - then yes you need a new clutch. Also any smell of burning you notice will indicate contamination of clutch due to oilseal leakage, Often better to replace the main crank seal while the G'box is off on high milage vehicles - as it's quick to do at the time.

Need description of obd drive cycle


This is my drive cycle a generic drive cycle i have used many times over the years and it has never failed me most drive cycles are too specific and impossible to adhere to for most drivers follow these steps exactly 1. make sure all codes are cleared and no check engine light is on 2 make sure the fuel level is between 1/4 and 3/4 full (this is part of the enable criteria for the evap monitor to run ) 3 let vehicle set overnight 4 start engine and let idle until the temp gauge is in the middle (this cold start enables the evap monitor and runs the O2 sensor heater test )5 drive vehicle around town avoid the highway stay at below 50 mph and when stoping at lights remove your foot from the gas and coast from around 50 to about 10mph or less if possible this will run the EGR monitor after about 3 to five miles of this proceed to the highway or freeway and travel over 50 but under 70 mph for about 3 to 5 miles this will run the catalyst test provided the O2 monitors passed if they didnt you will have a check engine light on before this point also i do a coast down on exit ramps (no braking) they make great places to get that EGR to run ONCE YOU START THIS PROCEDURE DO NOT KILL THE ENGINE OR SOME OF THE TEST WILL FAIL TO RUN

When do i need my first tune up


That depends on your driving. Spark plugs can claim 100,000 miles before a change. But if you drive a lot in town stop and go, you will be putting more hours of running time than you would if it was 100k highway. I have run across a lot of vehicles that state 100,000 on ignition. The plugs may be manufactured with a hard substance such as platinum but the caps, rotors and wire are not and a tune up was needed around 75,000 miles.
The first tune up is no more different than any other. The oil on the other hand, if you did not know what was used from the factory then maybe 3000 and if you use full synthetic then go to around 5000 afterwards. Replace the fuel filter if not every oil change every other. I like doing them that often as they are cheap enough and a clean filter never hurts. It use to be said to change an oil filter every other oil change in the owners manuals. I always did the filter every change.
Transmission filter, again, depends on your driving type. Just don't negelect it or else its going to cost more than a filter and fluid later on.

Hi. I have an '82 F-150 with a 351 c.i. engine, the extended cab version with the full-length bed, 4WD, with only 20,000 miles on it. When I'm driving about 70 mph, the tachometer reads 3000 rpm, which...


Hi

It does look like you have a 3 speed C6, if the PRND21 description is correct. If you do have overdrive, the "D" will be printed in a white oval.

Sounds like it is OK. My Mustang has a 351C with a C6 trans, and 3000 rpm is about right at 70mph.

The defining factor on the rpm will be the Differential gears, which in a truck, might very well be taller gears instead of highway gears, as the taller gears provide more power output at the axles than the highway gears do.

Example:
if you had 3.0 to 1 gears (Highway), that means that the driveshaft will turn 3 times for every complete revolution of the rear wheels(Axle)

If you had 4.0 to 1 gears, then the driveshaft would turn 4 times for every revolution if the axle. Lots of torque for pulling stumps, but on the highway. the engine will have to turn more rpm's to maintain 70 mph vs a 3 to 1.

with the 3 to 1, you will turn less rpm's on the highway, but will have less available low speed power (Torque) at the wheels.

Sounds like the truck is doing fine.

Is it my trans? or spark plugs? or something else?


Replace fuel filter and have the fuel pressure checked.

Maybe a transmission problem?


If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".

1996 Olds Bravada stays at 3000 rpm's at 65 MPH.


the trans is slipping or in the wrong gear, most likely the trans has an internal problem and will require extensive repair or overhaul. If u are at or near 100,000 miles then that is getting near the end of a transaxle's life span.
