I have no gas, oil, water, temp or speedpmeter function on dash. Replaced fuses keep blowing.

The cold air comes out below the dash or above the dash out of the vents next to the windshield. No air comes out of the center or end vents in the dash. I suspect the duct from the air conditioner has come apart. How do I get to it to repair it?

engine cutting off with fuel tank 1/4 full but will restart and run good for short distance?

I bought this truck, 6 months ago. The wiring had been messed with. It ran fine for a while, but now, when I turn the key to start, nothing happens. It's a standard two wheel drive. I installed new wiring harness and a new key and lock. I think I reprogramed the key as instructed. Now, the securty light does not flash, but still starter does not engage. My son jumped it at the starter. It turned, but wouldn't start. I shorted the yellow wire, under the switch and it bumped the starter. (We have wired the clutch switch together.) Can I install inline fuel pump and button switch for starter? What about the computer? Since I bought it the lights only worked when the motor was running. Thanks for any help.

this happened two days ago I turned my truck on and it started sounding really shaky and even to idle it takes time. I changed out spark plugs but still have that problem. I also did oil change

Diagnosis says fuel tank pressure sensor, purge valve solenoid, mass air flow, loose vacuum could be the problem. I have changed and checked all of these plus two other sensors and no change in the problem. Please help me! What else could it be?

About a month ago my 2000 s-10 extreme started making a clicking and grinding noise. It was coming from the right front wheel. I noticed that when I applied the brakes it would stop. I changed the brakes and the problem stopped. About 2 weeks ago it started again but when I hit the brakes this time it doesn't stop. Driving down the road tonight it started grinding bad and I lost my brakes. The pedal would just go to the floor. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I have been told that I have to go to the dealer to buy the catalytic converter. I live in Calif. and need to get my Blazer smogged next month, there is a hole in my cat. converter so will not pass. Cannot buy them at wrecking yards either.....

I changed the fuse for my reverse lights twice and lights worked for a couple of trips, then shorted out.

My S-10 is surging for gas, I took the air breather off, placed some gas in the TBI, it ran some better. I think I'll start with the fuel filter replacement before going further, also going to put some Seafoam in the tank. What do you all think??

2.8 v6 at high rpms it skips

I will try to make this short. v6 4x4.
Can not figure out why this s10 is overheating. radiator is clear, cap seems fine, waterpump under 6 months old, fluid cycles, fan turns when engine is running, new thermostat, bypassed the heater core (lines are clear). I am not losing fluid that I can tell. Removed the thermostat and it still overheats, just takes longer. Any ideas? I am losing my mind.

Why does my 4x4 switch amber light some times go out and some times come on.?

How do I obtaing a from squirt for my S10?

I have done a tune-up on my 2001 Chevrolet S-10, 4.3 liter. This was done in the last six months. I've changed the spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter, fuel pump, mass air flow sensor, O2 sensor, cleaned my K&N air filter, oil change, etc., but still she's giving me trouble.
This is exactly what she's doing;
While taking off at normal speed, she'll shake immediately after changing gears, (she's a five speed). If I take my foot off of the gas, then compress it again gently, she'll stop the shaking, and drive normally. This also happens up a hill. I have to keep down shifting, as she loses power bad. She'll try to pull up a hill, but shake bad, as the 'check engine' light comes on and flashes. The light will go off after the blinking stops.
She maintains the code PO452, which is the emissions system, though I am not finding anything wrong in that area. I've cleared the code many times, but it is still maintained. I've even considered the catalytic converter, but it is in perfect working order.
I have took very good care of her, as there is there nothing cheap on her. I have much work for other people, and rarely have time for my own stuff, but I could use another mind on this one, as I am trouble shooting here. I am at a loss of patience, time and money.. Please give me all the help you can.
Thanks and God bless.
