I don't know if this will help, but I just did some radiator work on my '01 S-10 with a 4.3. You might have a cracked tank inside the radiator.

I have a 1996 gmc sonoma 2+2. It would drive for awhile then it would sputter and die. sometimes taking up to five hours to start, just to die shortly.Timing was checked and fuel pump. guy said pump was fine, but I cant hear any sound from it at all now. Is it true that a fuel pump is going bad and heats up to just shut down?Truck gets plenty spark but seems to be getting no fuel. Please help.

I have a problem with my 2WD 1999 S-10 has a 2.2L 4 cylinder and, of course, the 4L60-E automatic transmission...I've noticed my shift points are rather early, being that overdrive kicks in at about 38 miles an hour...not only that, but whilst in overdrive, the truck seems to "slip" in and out of overdrive...and it doesn't want to shift into OD at all after a certain speed...and when it does, it falls right back out. any suggestions?

Battery dead or the battery connectors are in bad condition
the rattling sound comes from the flasher units or relay at the fuse box

I have a 1990 GMC S15 Jimmy, 4.3 fuel injected. It starts and runs perfect UNTIL it gets up to temp. Then it starts jerking, shuttering, shaking, wont pull itself. Put it in park and it idles and revs up just fine, just wont run for crap after it warms up under a load????

I have a 1991 gmc sonoma 2.5L. After about 3 or so miles of driving my check engine soon light comes on. If I shut off the truck and restart it it will go off for about another 3 or so miles can anyone tell me what it might be. I need to get it smogged.
