Hi! Good to know that the fluid is clean but I believe that you have a faulty torque converter. If the torque converter is faulty the car runs sluggish or wouldn't run at all even on high revs. Once the torque converter is replaced you'll be good. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

    It is located inside the transmission which will cost atleast $565. No problem. Have a good day!

Starter attempts to re-engage after already running

I agree with Ignition switch diagnosis. Another possibility is a short in the lockout for the gearshift and brake pedal lever. This is suppose to stop you from starting the vehicle unless your foot is on the brake pedal. These get smashed and it should not allow power to go to the starter relay, but if they do cross the circuit, it may provide power to the starter relay. You did not say if the starter tried to engage when you tried to shift from Park.

I think the Ignition switch is the most likely, but I wanted to mention the crushed lockout switch as a remote possibility.

If you have not found the problem yet, check the transmission interlock. Sounds like the shifter interlock switch may not be engaging to allow the starter to activate!

97 S-10, manual trans, 4WD, V6. wehn I engage

The gears are binding, and the vehicle is new enough the the computer can say hell no, and pop it back out. That or the mechanical portion won't hold it in place because the gears are binding. If you need 4WD, take it in to get repaired, The techs will try it out, and test it to make sure what is wrong, trust me when they are stumped, thy get 3 or 4 other techs thinking about it. They can fix it for you. A friend of mine had this issue, except in a 98 silvarado, and when he engaged his, it did the same thing. I never asked how they fixed it, but I know he went to a dealership to do it.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.

Transmission shifting problem

Don't know if you ever got this fixed, but my guess is it's a bad throttle position sensor.

hi take the park brake off. Select N on gear selector and try and push the car. You may need some help. If the car will not move .Your brakes are stuck .If it rolls then it is a gearbox problem
