problem #1

Dec 232002

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles
Automatic transmission cooler broke while driving and contaminated other components within the engine compartment. This made driving and gear changing difficult. Dealership will replace all contaminated components. The "service engine soon" light illuminated so the consumer took the vehicle to the dealer. The consumer had the radiator flushed at 550 miles and the engine continued to run rough. On one occasion, the consumer started the engine and it lunged forward almost knocking him to the driveway. The service manager agreed that the radiator may be defective. The battery was replaced, the instrument panel cluster was replaced because it had shorted out.
