Q: Ignition Switch installation on a 1998 Chevy s10 Pick-up?
On a previous question, I am being told that I should change out the ignition switch on my 1998 S10 Pick-up truck. Does anyone have instructions with pictures and diagrams as to how to go about doing this? I'am somewhat handy mechanically, but any additional help I can get would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Q: How long will a 1998 Chevy S10 pickup last?
I just bought a '98 Chevy S10 pickup for $1700. It has 170K miles on it but is in great shape and runs well. Was it a good buy and how long will it last?? Thanks!!! Its a 4cyl automatic 2.2L engine
A: That seems like kind of a high price for something with that many miles, but if it's been well maintained, there's nothing that says it won't still go another 50,000 miles. It may even be worth rebuilding when it eventually does go out.

Q: how do i remove the dash from a 1998 chevy s10 blazer?
can't find all of the screws to get it off so that i am able to replace the heater core
A: Get some help from someone who knows how to do this. If your intent on doing it yourself, there are manuals you can buy at auto parts stores for specific vehicle models that tell you how to do certain jobs. I'd ask because I wouldn't think you'd have to take the dash all the way out to replace a heater coil but them again, I haven't torn into a Chevy in a long time. Good luck! Hey, something else I used to was to call the local auto dealer for my vehicle and ask for the service department and ask someone something like this, "I know you guys aren't the advice department but do you have to take the dash out of a 88 Chevy S-10 to replace the heater coil. If they start laughing or tell you no, then you know you need help. I've done this a bunch of times and always gotten some information.

A: I wouldn't pay that much for it. If you want to know blue book on it go to www.kbb.com. You can find book prices on most any vehicle there.
Q: repairing emergency brake on 1998 chevy s10?
The emergency brake doesn't work, but it did not long ago. How do you check to see if it's just loose or off?
A: You need to trace the emergency brake cable from the inside brake handle or pedal all the way back to your rear wheels. As long as that's all attached good and taut, and tightening up when the brake is applied, then take your rear wheels off and remove the hubs (assuming you have rear drum breaks, if not then there are no hubs, you can just see everything around the calipers). Then, with someone moving the inside control back and forth between the engaged and the disengaged position, look and make sure the emergency brake parts are moving at the rear wheels. Often, corrosion has deemed the parts imobile. More often than that though on drum breaks, the rear brakes are simply in need of adjustment. If THAT'S the case, then I recommend you get a Haynes or Chiltons manual (which BTW is a great investment for anyone without much mechanical experience to do minor repairs on their vehicle) to get better instructions than I have space for here in order to properly adjust your rear brakes. I hope this helps and good luck. Emergency brakes can sometimes be an aggrevation even to experienced mechanics.

Q: Do you know anything about a 1998 Chevy S10 Blazer?
