gas guage not working when turning ignition gas guage goes down
water leak from lower back of engine
i just recently received a tune up on my truck,well when i shift the gear and press down on the gas my truck starts jerking....when i press harder on the gas it doesn't accelerate it continues to jerk until it goes away im trying to find the problem.it was doing this even before the tune up.it does this with all 5 gears.
yesterday when i turned the ignition switch on to start there was a loud thump then a whiring sound for about 2 sec. i tried again and it started this was the first time this happened. is this a bad starter or a bad clutch pedal switch

My temperature gauge starts out fine and then it will quickly rises to borderline hot and then quickly return to normal several times on a 10 minute drive to work. i noticed this after i bypassed the heater core. topped off all the coolant and no leaks can't figure it out. the engine doesn't seem to be as hot as the gauge reads. please help.
First my heater only worked on high, so i changed the resistor. And it was working on all the speeds. Then I noticed that when i try to put it on defrost only or to change the settings it doesn't change, the heat just blows out of everywhere. About a month after we changed the resistor, I noticed the fan would work on all the settings except high. Now just a couple weeks ago it started to make a loud noise and it stopped working all together. You can hear it going but barely anything at all comes out of the vents. I let the truck run for about 45 mins and my windshield was barely defrosted.
I know there are no simple answers to this, but need a fix for pinion gear bind under load i.e. pulling or hauling. 1995 Chevrolet 4X4 pickup, 5.7L, 5spd tranny with 175,000 miles on original motor. Motor and tranny are awesome (I've owned since new) so would like to fix. This is a clean, good running truck.
put in a new transmission and now my speed odometer wont work at all.

Happens maybe once a week or so. Doesn't matter if it's cold or hot. Truck runs fine and no trouble codes. It does not matter what fuel grade I use and tried using injector cleaners and octane boosters with no change. Also the backfire will sometimes blow out the PCV valve and fills the engine compartment with smoke. I was thinking that it's a timing problem but the computer controls timing but not while cranking I suspect. Maybe some kind of carbon build up? I also use Mobil 1 oil. Engine has 93K miles. Thanks.
