    Haven't change the tumble yet because I can't find ANY information on how to do this. It is 4x4 with manual transmission. Everything I find is for automatic. Can you tell me how to change it?

    Also, we ended up disconnecting the battery last night in hopes of saving that.

    if you take the cover off of your column, its either a small screw or just a push in type, at the end of the tumbler an on the bottom, its just sumthing small to hold it in place...

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.

Key Stuck

It is a one time thing if you parked the front tires against something that forced the steering sector in a turning bind. ie, if you had tried to turn the steering wheel hard in the direction that the wheels were pointed, it may have released the tension on the key assembly....
Otherwise, it may occur again., good luck
