I am sorry for the delay in getting a response to you. Sometimes we get alot of customers and just can not keep up. Sometimes you just have to wait for the correct tech to login.Do you even still need help. Sometimes customers seek help elsewhere or figure it out on their own before we get to each and everyone.I am sure I can help a lot or a little at least something if you give me a chance and work with me. I am going to get an answer to you regardless if you reply or not sooner or later.If your concern is urgent reply and let me know and if you have anything more you think will help me, to help you, let me know. I work on here normally 3pm-3am central. Thanks Chris

Actuallly I have another problem with a 1992 s10blazer, We changed the heater core about 6 months ago and ever since we have a problem with the front diffenential trying to engage randomly. It makes a terribe gear noise, then you have to slow down,, and it will make a loud pop and disengage. Im wondering if we mixed up the vacuum lines under the dash, if that couldve caused this problem, or if its just coincidence, but I have already changed the vacuum valve on the tcase, and that didnt help
