I had to replace my steering column on my 92 Chevy Silverado 5.7l 350 with a manual trans. And the only steering column I could find used was a automatic column shift one and I got it put in but a wire came out on harness connector for ignition switch and I don't know what the pin layout is and not sure if its that or something else but truck won't even crank all the lights and bells go off when key is on but Truck does nothing when turned forward to start.
When idling the truck starts fluctuating and when it is in reverse it shuts off most of the time
What type of fluid to use in a 92 Chevy pickup manual transmission
It knocks when driving it but it goes in and out of gears but going into first it kind of wines and then stops and goes into gear
No problem I just wanted to know what fluids to use
My lights stay on even after I turn them on after driving in wet conditions.
I can't disconnect my battery for longer than 5 minutes.
They stay on even though the button for them is in the off position.
I had to disconnect a switch in the rear under the bed to get the back lights to turn off so the battery won't drain as fast. what can I do to make sure my lights turn off?
trans. doesn't slip just won't change into a higher gear?
