1990 Chevrolet S10 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 1990 Chevrolet S10

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit may fail internally causing the ABS warning light to illuminate.

The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

The electrical contacts in the ignition switch may fail and result in erratic instrument panel gauge operation or illumination of the Check Engine Light. A failed ignition switch will require replacement.

The coolant is very rusty and the system has been neglected.
I want peace of mind that the core, water pump and entire system is clean. I can do a simple drain and replace coolant, I want a POWER FLUSH,can your shop do this>?

windshield +wipers stopped working in intermediate but work on continual mode fast. when turn off do not stop in park position. Is there more than one fuse for wipers and is so where?

About the Windshield wiper intermittent problem: I have a 1994, same problem when I got it. I pulled apart the little motor [that mounts under the hood on the back wall, about middle of cab, a challenge to get at, but worked!] and applied clean and more grease inside the housing...it stopped the problem! [Rated all 4's just because - but I luv my 1994 4cyl S-10!]
