    97 Blazer low rpm noise from bell housing

    97 Blazer low rpm noise from bell housing

    Temp never seemed a factor. I have done a couple of s10's that had the same noise and it was always a cracked flexplate. And this one having had one done just a few months earlier led me to think it was the same thing. The plate that is on there now, I have looked at real close, no welds seem...

    This is a 97 Blazer, 4.3, 4l60E, 4wd, that was brought to me with a noise that I had heard in other Blazers/s10's, best way I describe it as loose bolts rattling around in the bellhousing. Found it to be cracked flexplates. This vehicle had already had the flexplate replaced once, the old...

Though I guess I could go ahead and get a hold of it and check the data with it cold and hot anyway, may tell me something. Thanks for giving...

    2008 Dodge Durango

    Usually just a little gentle twisting is all it takes, but if really stuck, the boot comes loose from the coil, squirt a bit of wd40 down into the boot while on the plug, let it soak a few minutes and try giving it a twist. Make sure you clean inside of the boot and put some dialectric grease on...

    04 GMC Savana Side door lock issue

    On your heater, sounds like the blower motor resistor is bad, should be under the hood on top of the box just right of the blower, will have 2 or 3 small screws and a wire harness to it.
