My brake light has been replaced, I've checked the wires and the connections all look fine. When I turn on my lights all the lights come on, when I press on the brakes the brake light on the rightside goes out. I don't understand it, I am trying to fix it myself because if I go to the dealership they'll see me a just a woman who knows no better and want to charge me some crazy price for something that might be simple to fix.

I have a 98 Chevy S-10 Blazer LS 4WD 4.3L V6. It started about a month and a half ago, acting just very sluggish. I thought (I am a female, that doesnt know to much about cars) that it may need spark plugs, since I had just bought it about 2 months prior, and no telling when they had been changed. So put in new spark plugs, didnt really change anything. It just got worse as days went on. Suddenly, the check engine light came on. Had the code ran, it said I needed a mass air flow. So I replaced that. Didnt help, but did make the check engine light go off. It continued to get worse, shifting really hard, and late, not wanting to climb hills, but flying down them, very hard, no matter how hard i pressed the gas to get up to speed, when holding the speed at about 50-55 (once I could finally get it up to that speed) it would kind of stutter, or bounce back and forth. meaning the RPM's would bounce from 3000 to 2000 rapidly. I could let out of the gas a tad, and it would stop bouncing like that, but still be very hard to get back up to speed. I bought some of that stuff that you put in your transmission that is suppose to "stop hard shifting, overheating, and slipping". That didnt help either. Yesterday, while driving it home from work, once I came to a stop, and tried to take off from a stop sign, it wouldnt go over 30mph. I figured it was going to snatch into gear as it had been doing at every take off, but never did the rest of the way home, and the check engine light popped back on. I have heard all kinds of stories from people, saying its my transmission (which is most logical to me), others say it may not be getting fuel so its possible it could be my fuel pump, then some even say driveshaft or something to do with driveshaft. Can anybody pleasseee help!! its my daily driver!

replacement of CV driveshafts

I am leaking transmission fluid and it has been traced to the front seal. I was told that the torgue converter needs to be removed during this process. I was given an estimate of around $1000...said it may be less. Can anyone help me out to determine if this is a valid estimate?

Thanks so much,
Greg

Step by step details instructions please?

Fuel injectors need to be replaced but mechanic says he hears a slight knocking and does not want to replace them.

Everytime I try to refuel my truck the overflow protection device on the fuel pump is activated for some reason. My problem started approximately a year ago with a check engine light with a code concerning my gas cap. I replaced the cap twice but this did not fix the problem. Now the problem is worse. I spend 20 minutes at the pump to pump 5 gallon of fuel. As you know, this beast drinks the fuel so I spend many 20 minute periods at the pump to get 50 miles down the road.

How do I fix this issue? Dealer hasn't a clue, actually niether of the two dealers I have taken the truck to can help me. They want to do exploratory surgury on my dime.

Let me know if you are familiar with this issue.

Thanks,

Bob
