Chevrolet S10 Problems

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.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light may be the result of a loose or worn gas cap.
