1994 Chevy Chevrolet LS S10 S 10 4WD long bed pickup truck TRADE BARTER TRADES ?

 

I’m selling this truck to go back to a short bed  2wd version vehicle.

Possible trades and cash will be considered for the following newer vehicles:

  • Saturn Vue 2wd
  • Honda Pilot or CRV 2wd
  • Toyota Tacoma or smaller pickups 2wd
  • Ford Ranger 2wd
  • And possibly????  2wdJ.

 I rarely if ever use 4wd so I really don’t need it. And the 4wd on this vehicle works fine.

 

Let it be known, I will not use the word “loaded” when describing this truck.

I have no idea why dealers use this word unless a vehicle has “all” available options on the vehicle. Your comments on “loaded” will be kindly acknowledged.

 I’m not a dealer as this truck has been a daily commuter to the office for almost 4 years.

 Everything works on this truck. If it had an electrical or mechanical issue, it was properly & promptly repaired by this old time engineer.

 The overall condition is very good for a truck of this age. All original except for the normal wear & tear mechanical parts that were replaced for preventive & corrective maintenance reasons. Any parts that were replaced where high quality & not low cost run of the mill replacement parts for reliability purposes. I don't believe in taking shortcuts. 

 Keep in mind, this is a 1994 and some maintenance will be needed from time to time (like any other vehicle).

 Low miles for it’s age…<133K miles !!!

 Always parked & stored in a heated garage when not in use.

 Solid, straight body with (can I say this) no rust.

The undercarriage does have spots of light surface rust as well as the full length box/ladder frame. It has been treated with carwell rust proofing treatment by a local Mercedes mechanic to protect all exterior panels.

 The passenger side lower door does have a slight crease/scratch as seen in the pictures. No perforations or rust on this area. This crease was on the vehicle when I purchased the vehicle approximately 4 years ago.

 The interior is in near excellent condition. The seat have always been covered to protect the original upholstery. The is a small hole on the drivers seat door edge by the seat belt area but otherwise no further damage.

 This vehicle has the “known” & obvious options:

  • Vortec VIN W V6 engine.
  • Optional full gauge instrument cluster.
  • Intermittent windshield wipers.
  • 4 Wheel drive non-electronic shift package (very reliable).
  • Automatic transmission with overdrive (very smooth)
  • AM/FM cassette
  • Overhead illuminated vanity lights
  • Map lights
  • Tow package with the optional vortec v6 ????? I don’t know for sure. I have towed one large u-haul trailer down state once with no issues & plenty of power to climb hills in 2wd.

 Overall, this truck does not have all the electrical, convenience options however, this is what makes this truck very reliable from a mechanical standpoint.  

 When this vehicle was purchased approximately 4 years ago, our local GM dealer changed ALL the fluids (excluding the power steering fluid). This included the gearcases & transmission & coolant flush.

The fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injection spider assembly & cat back exhaust was also replaced by a local GM dealer 3 years ago.

Newer all season Michelin radial truck tires. Brake pads, rotors, shoes & calipers replaced last year.

This truck has always utilized Mobile 1 synthetic 5w-30 motor oil & premium micronic grade oil filter. Does not use or burn oil.

I would feel very comfortable driving this truck anywhere across country as the radiator, water pump, all coolant hoses, coolant, Delco heavy duty battery, idler pulleys (2), vacuum lines & serpentine drive belt was replaced last summer.

 This quality truck does have zerk fitted grease joints not found on newer trucks.

***The only issue with this truck (since I purchased it approximately 4 years ago), is the play in the steering. The steering does not pull at highways speeds but in heavy winds, 1/2 inch CW and/or CCW steering correction will need to be exerted lightly to keep the vehicle going straight, at highway speeds in heavy winds. The looseness in the steering has been isolated down to the power steering gearbox. I have not replaced the gearbox but it is available @ Rock auto for $90+ including core charge. This is a common issue with old chevy trucks (as my old 1989 Silverado had this characteristic also) but easy to remedy by replacing the steering gearbox (unless there is an adjustment I don’t know about).


NOTE:

The buyer will ultimately be responsible for pickup & applicable shipping arrangements of this nice truck from my location.

I will assist the buyer in the paperwork from this location but not delivery of this vehicle from my location.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Mother's Day Suggestion No. 2,506

Thu, 02 May 2013 19:59:00 EST

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.

Chevy gets cracking on Cruze EV fleet testing

Chevrolet Cruze EV - Click above for high-res image gallery
The Chevrolet Volt hasn't yet gone on sale, but General Motors is looking at ways of expanding its electric vehicle lineup. Chevy, along with partner LG, is employing a group of all-electric cars in the form of the Cruze. The sedans are part of a demonstration fleet which is located in Seoul, South Korea and is being used to provide data in an electric vehicle research project. The goal is to gather information on driving patterns and charging behavior in addition to consumer acceptance.
The Cruze EVs, along with some Daewoo Lacetti Premieres EVs, are the first fleet of full-size electric vehicles and should provide invaluable information for The General. Staying full-size means not sacrificing cargo space, so the battery pack is mounted to the underbody, leaving the trunk area open for plenty recyclable, canvas grocery bags.

Chevy Corvette gets Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder [w/video]

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:00:00 EST

For the 2015-model-year, Chevrolet introduces Valet Mode for the Corvette, an enhancement to the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) already available and to your peace of mind. The PDR already captures 720p HD video with a windshield-mounted camera, records interior audio with a cabin microphone and gathers telemetry data using GPS, saving the data to an SD card in the glovebox. You can then watch your track-day antics with various information overlays on the center console screen.
Valet Mode will let you hit 'Replay' when your car gets pulled up front smelling vaguely of fricasseed clutch. Turned on by entering a four-digit code, it also locks the interior storage spaces and turns off the infotainment system. It can't be turned off until the code is re-entered. There's a press release below with more information as well as a video that explains how it works, with the obligatory dig at the 'Vette's biggest foe.
