2000 Chevrolet S10 Q&A
2000 Chevrolet S10 Question: when I'm going 0-25sound like a popcorn machine only happens in warm weathe.
OK AS OF 4-3-13 the below is correct with items that were done on the truck. I am just driving straight it doesn't happen when I am accel just going 30 mph and lower and it's warm outside. I had no noise all winter long this week-end it was 40 and I was popping all over the place. I have a Manual trans. all items done on the truck are: tie bars,bushings, strut and shocks, brakes, greasing of ball bearings but this all started when they did the brakes and they the other stuff with it. Never had any noise prior to those things being done. They have checked and rechecked all work done and just can't find the issue. Someone at the Jiffy Lube oil place said something about the shocks or struts not being placed correctly and that something about cutting or grinding off the factory rivets and lowers and press them though something and borrowing the spring compressor replace both upper and lowers. Oh and the only people who have ever worked on my truck are from the Chevy dealership. they don't know what lift running gear is but all joints are perfect accordoing to them. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME IDEAS AS TO WHAT THE PROBLEM IS! PLEASE this is driving me crazy!!! - gladycat
Do you have a lift kit on this truck?? If so WHY? That only leads to this kind of problem! Is it a 4x4 with a 2.2 FOUR CYLINDER ?? - pushrod
lift kits are aftermarket specialty. take to a performance shop and have one of their tech. have a look. dealership mech. prob. don't know what they are looking for. food for thought. average dealership shop rate is $150.00 per hr. independant shoprates range from $60.00 per hr. to $90.00 per hr. not sure about performance shops. - arturo08
