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.

I tried jumping it but is still would not start. I repased the fuel filter. But I don't know what to do,can you help me. Thanks A. Evans

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.

my truck seems hard to steer at times- fluid is fine- I had a mechanic tell me the front left wheel bearing is really bad and the right one is just bad after I had a tune up and he took for a ride due to the chugging I felt at 50mph. the tune up fixed that problem. how do i know if i have a wheel bearing problem?

Part by part I have replaced everything on the a/c system except the evaporator, after all pieces replaced including the clutch fan "new", I evac/recharged,oil per mfg.requirements and I still have excessive high side pressure enough to pop the relief valve on back of compressor and at times almost stops enough to make the serpt slip (burn smoke)....tried everything short of replacing evaporator?...

I have a 1996 Chev. 1500 with a 5.7 liter engine with 162,000 miles. The speedometer and tachometer having been working erratically. It starts working good and then after a few minutes the needles start jumping aroung and the quit working. The speedometer and tripometer will quit working. Then the vehicle will start off in second instead of first. The other gauges continue to work. I brought it to a mechanic and he had the instrument control panel taken out and sent off for diagnosis. The reply was that there no problem with the panel. The mechanic then said it was most likely an internal transmission problem.

Any ideas and on probable cause(s) and solution(s)?

I am looking for what the wires that plug into the heater/ ac controls do. I have a bad unit and need to bypass the hot cold switch somehow to blow heat. I cannot afford to buy another switch for a few weeks and need heat!! The fan works, the area selector does not, nor the recirculate or the ac on switch . i know i prob need a resistor, but what value and what wires?

My check gauges light comes on the tac and speedo dont work also the truck wont shift out of third gear?
