Can you use the transmission from a 1985 Chevy S-10 Blazer V6 4wd on a 1988 Chevy Silverado 12 ton pick up 350 V8 2wd?

Absolutely not!

The 85 S-10 is a 2.5 or a 2.8L V-6 and the 700R4 beind them -WILL NOT- bolt up to a 350 V-8. They are what is known as a 60 degree block and the 350 is a 90 degree block. The only way you could use it is to use the 85 engine with it and I have doughts you would want either of those dogs in your Silverado. You will need a 4L60 turbo, later model 4L60E Turbo, or a late 80's 700R4 from off of the back of a 4.3 or 350 engine. The 4.3 V-6 is the same as a 350 so a 4.3L powered model S-10 V-6 tranny will work, but you really do not want a 4.3L tranny behind a 350 engine. But you must have at least a 4.3L V-6 engine for the turbo to work on a 350 V-8. The 85 4X4 S-10 Blazer did not have the 4.3L. The 4.3L was first avaiable in the 88 year model. 86 and 87 had the 2.8L with EFI as base power. Your 85 donar could also be a 2.5L btw. Neither will fit the rear of a 350 V-8. If you are not already Over drive don't worry about it. The OD is in the converter so if there is no wiring to the tranny it's NOX-NIX. If it is OD you will need the the OD 700R4. A 4L60E will work if you know to wire it or know someone who can. I feel perty sure your 88 is already a factory OD.

If the S10 transmission was of the 2 wheel drive type you could swap them...

Where is the fuel pump reset button located on a Windstar?

This is well detailed and illustrated in the Owners Manual - See "Related Questions" below1995-1998 Reset Button location

The fuel pump inertia switch for a 1998 Ford Windstar is located behind the trim panel by the driver's left foot by the hood release (according to the owners manual)

I just reset mine, and can confirm that the above answer is correct. The switch is just below the hood release. There will be a finger sized hole, accessible vertically. Very easy to see and get to.

1999-2003 Reset Button location

The switch is located inside the jack storage compartment found at the right rear corner of the vehicle. Remove the cover and it is behind the thin "foam" covering inside the compartment towards the rear of the vehicle.

It has a red button on the top of the switch, make sure the button is fully depressed. If it is and the vehicle still won't start check fuel pressure at the rail (there is a port on the rail which is under the hood on the engine) with a fuel pressure gauge. If the pressure is ok (about 30 psi) the problem is most likely not fuel system related.

The emergency fuel pump cutoff switch, also known as the inertia switch, cuts power to the fuel pump in the event of an accident - even a slow speed one - any sudden "jolt" can trigger the switch.


Visit my auto blog at http:/ In the back, with the hatch open, take off the access cover to the jack (it's on the right side, behind the rear seat). If you snake your finger around the front of the opening, you should feel the reset switch, That's where it is on my '95, and since Ford isn't known for changing their cars much from one decade to the next, I'd presume that's where yours is.


The button is in the jack compartment in the back...passenger side. Its a red button. If it is not 'triggered' check the fuse under the hood to make sure it is not bad.

Where is the pcv on a 1998 V6 Chevy Blazer S-10?

It is on the driver's side on the valve cover. it has a rubber hose going to it. you just pull it out and it(pcv) will be on the end of it. I just replaced mine for the first time and had trouble finding it myself. It could be on either engine valve cover, but it's the only hose that runs directly from the valve cover to the air filter/ throttle body. The filter is on the valve side of this hose.

Where can you get an electrical schematic for a 1993 Chevy S-10 to convert non-power to power mirrors?

I saw that I am already wired for the electric stuff, i just have to pay more $$ for the electrical version of the part and plug it in! try going on ebay, most sellers will give you a kit to make power mirrors, my buddy converted his over doing that

Where is the fusible link for the AC on a 1999 Chevy S-10?

it hard to say exactlly where the fuseable link is, your best bet is to trace all the lines until you find a small cylindrical rubber piece on the wire, if you are fairly sure that this is your problem its then just a matter of cutting out this section of wire and A: Just splice the wire, using proper connnectors, and heat shrinks to avoid any possible short circuiting B: Purchase a small gauge inline fuse kit and install it in the OEM location of the fuseable link. Again be sure to take your time and make all of the connections securely and properly.

Can an air conditioner freeze from over use?

yes it can

AnswerIf an AC system runs constantly you are probably low on refrigerant. Since you state that it is freezing over, I would recommend you check your filter and make sure it is clean before calling a service tech.

No not from over use, yes from incorrect use. and finally probably is low on refrigerant or a dirty filter, (lack of proper air flow). Possibly in low ambient conditions such as for cooling computer rooms in the winter. Then a defrost switch should help. You do need a service tech.

H0w do you remove S10 truck bed?

Its pretty simple.

First there is a wiring harness in the back for the tail lights. Disconnect this at a connector

near the center of the rear bumper.

Next you will have to remove a few screws that attach the gas

filler to the bed.

Last you will have to remove the bolts

that hold the bed to the frame, as I remember you will need a 3/4" wrench fir this.

Two people can lift the bed off the frame.

How To

How to install a distributor for a 1990 Nissan maxima engine?

This is easy. The distributor cap is to the left of the engine if you are facing the radiator. The distributor cap is tightened down by three small bolts. It should come off easily. The rotor is directly beneath this and has a screw holding it in place under the back edge. The rotor is also very easy to replace. Rememember to mark your plug wires as you unhook them from the cap. Then simply connect the wires to the new cap and scre it down. I got a new cap for about $37 at Autozone. Have fun.

Air Filters and Intake Manifolds

Is there inexpensive way to check for leaks in the intake manifold?

Yes, while the engine is running (in park) spray gumout/carb cleaner along the egdes of the intake. If the motor runs smoother or better then that tells you the intake is leaking. This, however, could cause a fire. A safer way is to use an unlighted propane torch. Turn the fuel on low and slowly move it along the hoses and gasket surfaces. When the engine speeds up, you have found your leak. if you are not sure if there is a leak in the intake ;a good way is when the engine is at idel carefuly place a rag over the carb or throttle body slowley closing the opening ( hold the rag tightly )while slowley placing the rag over the intaks ; if you notice an increase in RPM then you probley have a vacumm leak; to help pin point the leak use a spray with water and slowley go around the base of the carb ;manifold and vacuum lines when the RPM'S increase check that area for leaks ; cracked vacuum lines ;intake gaskets leaking this should help

Car Shaking Problems

Why would your vehicle vibrate at high speeds?

My van did this as well and turned out I just needed my tires biggie..and it went back to driving smoothly on the highway

Answeryou might just want to check to see and make sure the insides of your rims are clean too. snow or dirt that is caked on the inside of the rim will cause this. and by inside the rim i don't mean in the air chamber of the wheel, but just on the inner circle of a wheel. gl. AnswerIf none of the above work, look over every tire very carefully making sure you see no humps or bumps(goose eggs). You could have possibly broke a belt in the tire. SNM AnswerIf it snowed recently, and the problem did not exist before the snowstorm, there may be frozen snow/ice stuck to one or more wheels, causing imbalance. Take the care to a self-serve car wash and spray the wheels from underneath the car and in the wheel wells. BW

yes it could be ur tires but it could turn out to be balljoints and or tirod ends
