About GMC Sonoma

Renamed from GMC S-15 and acting as badge-engineered Chevrolet S10, GMC Sonoma was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company's GMC Division of General Motors LLC from 1991 to 2004 as a compact pickup truck. Originally introduced to respond the trend of the late 1970s truck segment exploding in popularity, S-15 was renamed as Sonoma until 1991. But still, after being manufactured through two generations, GMC Sonoma was replaced by GMC Canyon in North American market.
The first-generation GMC Sonoma was produced from 1991 to 1993 as a twin to Chevrolet S10 with only slightly different grille and taillight treatment. It was offered in extended and regular cab styles and came in a performance package named Sonoma GT. And GMC Sonoma was powered by 2.5 L I4, 2.8 L and 4.3 L V6 and engines sent power through 3-speed, 4-speed automatic and 4-speed, 5-speed manual transmissions. The more recent GMC Sonoma arrived in the 1994 model year. It was offered in regular, extended and crew cab configurations. And it came in trim levels including base SL, midlevel SLS and luxury SLE as well as Highrider package. Back then, Sonoma got three engine choices: a 2.2 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 118 horsepower, a 4.3 L V6 producing 165 hp and a 4.3 L V6 cranking out 195 hp. Power was sent through 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission to two wheels or four wheels.

GMC Sonoma Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Loading with value and versatility, GMC Sonoma still lacks impressive safety and interior build quality. But still, as a vehicle with thirteen years old, there are still noticeable problems you need to pay more attention to on your Sonoma:
First, what troubles GMC Sonoma drivers most is the engine failure, which is a fatal problem for vehicles. What you should do is to diagnose and solve it before it leads to worse consequences. Some experienced Sonoma drivers offer some recognizable and simple signs to help you. First of all, there will be ticking or clanking noise from the engine, and then the engine suffers from performance issues such as misfiring, stalling, bucking, slow acceleration response, and difficulty starting or inability to start. It may even cause some engine accessories stop working and activate the Check Engine Light. Once you feel the vehicle has a poor fuel efficiency, you are advised to inspect the Sonoma rocker arm, throttle cable, spark plug, fuel pump, engine mount, distributor reluctor, crankshaft pulley, timing chain tensioner and timing belt tensioner thoroughly.
Second, suspension and transmission failures on GMC Sonoma could also lead to fatal consequences if dealt with unproperly. Because they not only could cause uncomfortable and unsteady driving trip but also put occupants in dangers. Suspension failure often has symptoms such as clunking noises, excessive vibration, uneven tire wear, tilting vehicle and poor handling, and all these could be resulted from defective Sonoma steering knuckle, sway bar link, coil springs and leaf spring plate. As for transmission failure, broken Sonoma shift cable and transfer case seal are often the culprits.
However, apart from above reaction measures, you are advised to take some preventative measures to keep yourself away from any kind of unexpected accidents. And performing routine maintenance on some vulnerable auto parts of your GMC Sonoma is one of the preventative measures. Normally, electrical parts are succumbed to wear and tear quickly due to a high frequency of usage, therefore, you should put Sonoma power window switch, A/C switch, mirror switch, door striker, neutral safety switch and back up light switch on your routine maintenance list.
