Chevrolet S10 Problems

ABS Light Due to Brake System Control Unit Failure

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

Driveability Problems Due to Internal Distributor Fault

The distributor may develop internal faults. This can cause a rough running engine or stalling condition, the Check Engine Light may or may not illuminate. Our technicians tell us that the distributor should be overhauled or replaced to correct this concern.

Coolant Leak From Heater Core

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.
