    Default 98 S10 advice

    Looking at a 98 S10, plain Jane, 4 cylinder, 5 speed. Any thing to look for?
    The hood release handle is broken, but you can pull the wire with a pliers
    and get the hood open. Is that a big deal if I fix it while the wire still
    works? Also, the clutch has no free play. Is this normal with this type of
    hydraulic clutch?

    you replace the hood release cable as one piece (handle and all) not
    hard to do and not very expensive.

    I dont know if no free play in the pedal is normal or not on that truck
    but if the clutch isnt slipping and "feels" ok I wouldnt worry about it.

    yeah, i have a '97 chevy s-10, it was a parts truck and has about 170K
    miles on it. i thought that the clutch having almost no free play was
    just wear or something over the years, but we checked it out, its just
    like that on the trucks ive asked about and mine, now yours.

    my hood pop handle's cable is about broken at the hood latch, my only
    suggestion is to replace the cable like the post before me said, and
    make sure your latch is lubed well, if its too hard to pull, that may
    be why it would break =]


    and i was wondering if anyone would know how much a shift lever might
    be. my shift lever was only screwed on half way, i suppose someone was
    racing my little four cylinder and slammed it into third, breaking it
    so it give it too much play when shifting... still its an oldie but
    goodie.
