My son purchased a Isuzu Hombre (Chevy S-10)with a bad automatic transmission. He purchased it from a friend who bought it from a glass company who sold it because the transmission was bad. Friend replaced transmission and drove it 300 miles and the transmission started slipping very badly. My son bought it knowing the transmission was bad, pulled the old transmission out and exchanged it for a rebuilt tranmission. He drove it 75 miles and the tranmission startedt o slip significantly and

My husband recently purchased a 1989 Jeep Wrangler. Overall it seems to be in pretty good condition. We took it to my dad's chevy dealership for his mechanics to work on it. His service guy claims to be a "Jeep Guy". There are a couple of things my husband wants done and this guy says shouldn't be done and I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. I think my husband's friend is influencing what he things needs done, but while this friend know alot about cars, he doesn't know anything abo

Help with troubleshooting speedometer problem. I had a "friend" do some work on my car a while back and ever since then my speedometer will just start jumping from 0 to 10 to 80 to 60 back to 0 at random. It jumps all over the place. Even in park it does this. When it does it going down the interstate it comes out of the torque convrter lockout. So I figure the speed sensor is going out in it. Replaced that and it's still doing it. Well I unplugged the sensor and it is still doing it. I dont thi

I purchased a used Jensen UV10 from a friend and installed it in a 97 eclipse spyder. I recently bought a 2003 chevy silverado 1500hd LX, and took out the aftermarket JVC cd player to install my Jensen. The JVC was working fine when I removed it, as was the Jensen. Upon installation in the chevy, it powers on and all functions work properly, except there is no sound. I've rewired several times and still the same outcome.

The oil pressure gauge on my 2004 chevy avalanche is bouncing all over the spectrum, from ''0''-''80'' PSI without any affect on the performance of the engine. The needle will usually peg at 80 PSI, or drop to 0 and then stay there. Inclines and declines seem to have some affect on it as well. What could be causing this?


It is probably the gage cluster. chevy has had a problem with this and it was recalled. so you might go to your dealer and ask him if they will replace the cluster. mine did that to but as time went on all the other gages went crazy or stopped workin ... 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche

I have a 85 chevy elcamino. It has a 305 engine in it that needs to be replaced,along with the transmission. I have a friend that will give me a early to mid 90s chevy caprice with a 350.

Providing that the valve covers are the same, the engine should fit. It would be easiest if both transmissions were identical but you can use a 350, 400 or even a 700r4 in there with some mods and a crossmember move and possibly a driveshaft mod. You ... 1985 Chevrolet El Camino

My 98 Chevy Metro will only start after it has sat for two hours or more. It starts right up in the morning, but if I make a quick stop, it won't start back up. Friends have advised I replace the spark plugs and ignition wires, which I did and there was no change. Another friend said I should replace the started, which I also did, but still no change. The guy at the auto parts store suggested I change the fuel filter and/or pump, but before I do so I'd really appreciate some feed back. Thanks

We are thinking of buying a 1997 chevy cavalier from a friend's friend and they tell us that the only thing wrong is that it won't reverse. you can push it out of the driveway and it drives but the reverse doesn't work. is this a bad buy or can it be fixed inexpensively?


The only easy fix is if it is something in the shift rod.Check the rod and bracket and make sure it is not loose.If it all looks good then the problem is internal and the trans will have to come out for repair.If you know a good tech that has trans e ... 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
