    Hello, I have aquired my fathers 1994 2wd s10 with 2.2L 5 speed, has 77K+ Miles, he has taken pretty good care of it for it's age. He has had it for 10 years and other than normal wear, he has had to replace the gas tank all lines, and pump. Living in the northeast you will rust stuff out in no time.

    It drives nice, will be needing a good tune up, but clutch has been replaced ( dad was hard on it), about 8000 miles ago, only issue i have with it is when you are at idle or cruse sounds like a high pitch annoying chirping sound if you barely touch the clutch pedal it goes away or if you get on it it doesn't happen.

    I'm a pretty good non certified mechanic, and try to do my own work most of the time as no garages around my area are trust worthy! I have built a full size bronco from ground up, I've rebuilt 2 stroke engines on my quads.

    Sure would like to get that annoying clutch chirp solved any help would be appriciated.

    I do need to get myself a repair manual for it is there any free copies floating around??

    I also belong tom many forums and most say pics or your lyin'! b so here she is My daughter named it Barbie, and it will be her's in the coming months once i give it a good looking through, she turns 18 in a few days, not looking forward to teaching her a clutch, but if she can shift a quad she can learn a truck!

    Thanks a bunch in advance!

    Thanks Guys and yes I'm all about vintage!! I like the older style better like me we get better with age!

    Any idea on the chirpping noise? A buddy said he believes a new clutch, bearing and spacer, myabe pressure plate if the fingers are bad?

    Been over 10 + years since I put a clutch in, guess I might have to shake the rust off!:party:

    I forgot to update, then couldn't remember my password, so to update, I no longer have the s10, June of 2013 It was parked outside city hall as my son is a Voluntary fireman, at 2;15 am a drunk driver hit it head on. She also had no insurance or driver license so I was stuck with a pile of scrap. I Sold it to a guy for parts $500. Here are the pics- Im may not look too bad but the frame on the passenger side was twisted out. Police said she was doing about 40mph in a 25, had cocaine, alcohol and mary jane in her system. Now we drive a 2014 Captiva!

    This is what her ride looked like-

    Wow, that's intense. At least no one was in the truck.

    I had a 93 S10, sold it to a girl in the office over here, she got rear-ended on the highway at 1:00am my a kid in an Explorer doing 93 MPH! The truck lifted off the ground and landed on a Jersey barrier, lucky she way okay
