What is the wireing diagram for my engine and the wireing diagram for sensors


My seatbelt is broken on my drivers side, and all the auto salvage places in my area do not have a matching seat for me. So now i'm trying to figure out if there is another car seat that is interchangeable with mine.
want to replace the bushings myself
I HAVE A 95 GMC JIMMY AUTOMATIC 2WD V6 4.3 VORTEC AND I HAVE BEEN NOTICING FOR THE LAST MONTH THAT WHEN I START THE TRUCK IT SEEMS THAT THE MOTOR IS REVVED UP AND I NOTICE THAT THE RPMS ARE KINDA HIGH BEFORE I EVEN PRESS THE GAS PEDAL, BUT WHEN IT WARMS UP IT WOULD IDLE NORMALLY...AND THEN THE OTHER NIGHT I WENT TO THE GROCERY STORE AND WHEN I WAS READY TO LEAVE THE TRUCK WOULDN'T REVERSE AT ALL WHEN I PUT IN "REVERSE", SO I HAD TO HAVE SOME GUYS HELP ME PUSH IT OUT OF THE PARKING SPACE I WAS IN, AND I WAS ABLE TO DRIVE HOME BUT I NOTICED THAT IT SEEMED TO NOT SHIFT GEARS RIGHT (KINDA LIKE IT WOULD SKIP 2ND AND GO INTO 3RD BUT IT DIDN'T CAUSE THE TRANSMISSION TO JUMP OR MAKE ANY GRINDING NOISES OR ANYTHING)I AM SO SCARRED THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO REPLACE OR HAVE MY TRANSMISSION COMPLETELY REBUILT, AND I AM HOPING THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING ELSE THAT COULD BE CAUSING IT? IF ANYONE HAS HAD THE SAME SORT OF ISSUE WITH THERE VEHICLE AND KNOW EXACTLY WHAT CAUSED IT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE THAT ANYONE COULD GIVE ME...OF COURSR I KNOW I AM GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE IT TO A TRANNY SHOP FOR A COMPLETE DIAGNOSIS BUT I WOULD KINDA LIKE TO KNOW A LIL BIT ABOUT WHAT COULD BE THE CAUSES OF THE PROBLEM, BECAUSE SINCE I AM A WOMAN IT SEEMS THAT THE PAST EXPERIENCES THAT I HAVE HAD WITH MOST MECHANICS HAVEN'T ALWAYS BEEN THE BEST, AND SOME ARE GONNA TELL ME I NEED A WHOLE NEW OR REBUILT TRANSMISSION BUT IF THERE IS ANOTHER PART THAT COULD BE CAUSING MY PROBLEM OR IF ONLY A CERTAIN PART OF THE TRANSMISSION CAN BE FIXED WITHOUT HAVING TO COMPLETELY REBUILD THE WHOLE THING I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW SO I DON'T LOOK SO NAIVE AND GULLIBLE WHEN I GO TO SPEAK WITH A MECHANIC...I APPRECIATE ANYONE THAT CAN HELP ME UNDERSTAND WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM! :)
I replace the resistor after verify bulbs, fuse, and relay are OK but DLR still not working. What else I need to take care of??
For the last few months, when driving the car, the engine sounds loud as if accelerating constantly. The car has less than 80,000 miles. The mechanic checked everything and reported the car was fine, but it has not sounded so loud and like the engine is "racing" before.
Jerks a little , very abruptly, and and/or speeds forward suddenly when shifting from reverse to drive...automatic..
Engine light came on at about 120,000 miles. Shop tested thoroughly and gave feedback that above needs replacement. They reset the light, a couple of times, but after a few days it comes back on. The car runs fine, but the light on is worrisome.
checked battery voltage engine of (13 VDC)
checked while engine running (15 VDC)
Battery load tested at local parts store (OK)
the only major work done recently was replacment of transmission.
Prior to Alternator going bad had and continue to have i issues with ignition in that I get all the diagnoctic dings and lights on dash-Turn key and nothing-no cranking no nothing- remove starter relay and put back in starts right up- already replaced relay but still does the same thing intermittenly. All out of ideas
I have recently replaced the fuel pump and am still having problems the car is hard to start takes three or more times cranking before it will start but after it starts first time it starts easily. But when it does start it only idles for a few minutes and then like it gets choked off and loses all flow of gas.....if you try to give it gas while it's idling it just chokes Down and dies. What could this be....the back fuel line connector is a lil loose could this be the problem or should I be looking somewhere else
Not shifting properly
Happens all the time.Not driving at present,but need it on the road
