I just ordered and replaced my A/C blower on my 2000 Chevy S10 LS 3 door extended cab pickup. On the control panel on the dash it gives me number 1-2-3-4 for blower speed. On my old motor that I replaced at least made noise on all 4 speeds. The new one i installed now only work on 3 and 4. Everywhere I look it either tells me that they come only with 1 speed or something else but I KNOW it has 4 speeds because the numbers are on my dash for me to select the speed of the blower. Everywhere I looked to buy the motor never asked the question about speeds for the blower nor does it say in the specifications. I would like someone if they know the answer why, I would sure appreciate it very much. I purchased the new motor online from Rock Auto parts but every option for the vehicle I described fully 2000 S10 LS 3dr extended cab, again any information as to why I now only have speeds 3 and 4 would be greatly appreciated

1999 Chevrolet S-10, 4-cylinder 2.2-liter, rear wheel drive, manual transmission.

Pick-up running rough, loss of power, service engine light comes on, I drive to a well known national service center to get code read, they say code is P0300B which means misfire on cylinders #1 & #4, they bring out the coil packs they both have cracks, I tell them to replace both of them. I pay and leave for 32 mile drive home, life is great everything seems fine.

Wake up the next morning it’s doing the same thing. Drive 32 miles back to national service center, same code P0300B, the say they think it maybe a weak valve spring, burnt valve, or a bad exhaust valve, they say they can’t do that work their, tell me not to drive when service engine light is on, they say unburnt fuel drive can damage catalytic converter home 32 miles park pick-up.

have put on everything new that it calls for still dosn't fix it

It all started when my starter went out. After replacing and putting proper shims, i shut down and restarted the truck about 6 times and then when i was just about to shut it off and take it off the jack, it just died. The truck hasn't started since. It fired when i poured a small amout of gas in. And my "mechanically inclined" buddies told me it must be injector or the filter, i replaced both, and now i found out i need to bleed the lines after replacing injector but i cant find one!?! 4 Cyl(e)<-8th VIN # SIngle Injection engine. Can anyone please help me out this is my only vehicle =(

how do you disconnect slave cylinder from tranny ?

one differential bearing went out replaced bearings and wheel bearings. sounds fine when accelerating but when i let up on gas pedal and coasting there is a growling, rubbing sound. can anyone tell me what might be causing this?

Just installed new a/c compressor. The compressor runs great and pressures are at right levels. When the low side pressure reaches 21 to 23 psi, the compressor should cycle off to prevent freezing, but it doesn't. The evaporator freezes up blocking air flow. The problem is we can't find the switch, relay, thermostat to control the A/C's cycling sequence. Where is and what controls the cycling sequence for the A/C compressor. We have found on switch/relay with three wires on the high side below the accumulator.

Truck has had trouble starting not catching. after several seconds of engine turning over and pumping the accelerator, there was no fuel smell, first checks would be the relay or filter but I don't know where they are. it is an S10 crew cab
