Still want go past 30-40mph. 0-30mph runs normal. when we bought it 2 days ago, check engine light was already on. Guess I better hook it up to a code reader, huh?

Question Asked: head gasket
August 10, 2009, 01:47 AM
I'm in the process of looking for a honest and dependable repair shop for repair on a blown head gasket for a 1.7L HONDA ENGINE. Any tips or advice for finding such a shop? Also I'm thinking about doing the job myself. Experience? I'm a millwright by trade on turbines and compressors, but not autos. Is there a site where I could get free info on tackling this job? not trying to be a cheapskate, but been unemployed for 2 months and things are a little tight.

one more stupid question. Where exactly is the slave cylinder on a 1995 S10 2.2L? There is a bleeder screw above the reservoir line from the clutch reservoir mounted on the drivers side of the 5- speed transmission, but a simple diagram I found shows the slave mounted on the outsde of transmission. Also is there a web site that might offer a free diagram of the clutch(drive train} for a 1995 S10 2.2L, manual transmmision? thank you!
Question Asked: hydraulic clutch

my clutch master cylinder has one fluid line coming from it to the 5 speed manual transmission. There is a bleeder screw above the fluid line on the transmission. what is the proper and best way to bleed the system in detailed step form? I tried bleeding myself but no luck, and now I can drive vehicle if I pump the clutch 2-3 times before each gear shift change. Now the whole truck is shaking harshly when driving. This clutch problem started when the engauged clutch pedal sank to the floor one morning and after checking, the reservoir was empty and been having problems eversince.
