I have taken my 1998 chevrolet 1500 pickup to 2 different mechanics. I've had the alternator worked on, fan belt changed twice (because I was told that it might have the wrong fan belt on it), and bearings worked on. Some times it will stop and then start up again after it has been worked on. At first it sounds like a bird tweeting then it gets sort of loud. Also, I have noticed that if I were to pour water on the fan belt while the truck is running it stops but it soon starts up again.

i now it has something to do with the passlock code but heres the thing cant get it to reset the truck wont start and the security light stays on doesnt blink even after removing the key from the ignition

when traveling up a ramp I seem to have no power and when I am driving normal it seems like my impala wants to accelerate.

No hot air, no coolant leaks, hoses seem ok, water hoses feel hot but
no hot air. engine runs at about 190 deg after new thermostat.

why does the 20a fuse keeps blowing when i turn on lights any ideas?

I am getting about 8-10 miles/gallon or maybe 180 miles to the tank and I can't figure out why. In the last 2 yrs it has gotten worse. The system is not producing any codes and I don't have any check lights on but I know my truck (I bought it brand new in '02) and the gas mileage was never this bad in the earlier years. I have had it checked out but mechanica can't finds anything even after replacing the fuel filters. I think it's a fuel pump going bad because the "empty" will come on when I need gas and when I start it later it will be off and the needle is a little higher. Slightly erratic gas needle but not obvious by any means.

I have a 96 Caprice (LT1 5.7) and I need to repalce the rear break shoes and drums but I see there are two sizes available for the drums. How I can find out what size I need with out manually measuring them myself?

I am leaking power steering fluid. I have replaced both lines. I think it is coming from the joint between the hydroboost and brake booster. Is there a seal I can replace or do I have to replace the whole booster? Thanks!

I cannot afford to go to a mechanic but I don't want to ruin the car while I look for a job. I had a friend that hooked up a toggle switch to turn on the fans. While I know this is not recommended, where do I hook up the toggle switch to the fans?
