How is the brake fluid level in the master cylinder? If it's low, the brake light will come on. The right rear wheel and drum need to be removed to inspect the brakes and see what is going on. Your description sounds like there may be some brake hardware floating around inside the drum. Let me know what u find. Curt

That's not the symptom of a bad TPS. Bad TPS causes hesitation in the same spot as you accelerate. Slamming into gear is a pressure issue and the GM uses input from the MAF sensor to determine transmission pressure. I'd start by cleaning the MAF sensor or testing it to see what it's reading.

You need to get a rebuilt instrument cluster. Do a search for speedometer rebuilders online. They run about $175. Get a cooling system pressure test to find out where the coolant is going.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
(see Figures 1 and 2)

CAUTION The fuel injection system remains under pressure, even after the engine has been turned OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Relieve the fuel system pressure using the recommended procedure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Drain the fuel tank, then remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.
  4. While holding the modular fuel sender assembly down, remove the snap-ring from the designated slots located on the retainer.

WARNING The modular fuel sender assembly may spring up from its position. When removing the modular fuel sender from the tank, be aware that the reservoir bucket is full of fuel. It must be tipped slightly during removal to avoid damage to the float.
  1. Remove the external fuel strainer.
  2. Detach the Connector Position Assurance (CPA) piece from the electrical connector and detach the fuel pump electrical connector.
  3. Gently release the tabs on the sides of the fuel sender at the cover assembly. Begin by squeezing the sides of the reservoir and releasing the tab opposite the fuel level sensor. Move clockwise to release the second and third tabs in the same manner.
  4. Lift the cover assembly out far enough to detach the fuel pump electrical connection.
  5. Rotate the fuel pump baffle counterclockwise and remove the baffle and pump assembly from the retainer.
  6. Slide the fuel pump outlet out of slot, then remove the fuel pump outlet seal.

To install:
  1. Install the fuel pump outlet seal, then slide the fuel pump outlet in the slots of reservoir cover.
  2. Install the fuel pump and baffle assembly onto the reservoir retainer and rotate clockwise until seated.
  3. Install the lower retainer assembly partially into the reservoir. Line up all 3 sleeve tabs. Press the retainer onto the reservoir making sure all 3 tabs are firmly seated.

Gently pull on the fuel pump reservoir from retainer to assure a secure fastening. If not secure, replace the entire fuel sender.
  1. Attach the fuel pump connector.
  2. Fasten the CPA connector to the fuel sender cover.
  3. Install a new external fuel strainer.
  4. Install the modular fuel sender.
  5. Install the fuel tank in the vehicle.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Pressurize the fuel system and verify no leaks.

Did you have the head checked, they have been known to break inside the runners . I always used a vacuum fill system when working on these, jack up the pass front corner when doing a coolant refill, that should eliminate an air lock

Try cleaning the track it runs on, then lube it with a spray lubricant. If that doesn't do it, it may be the motor itself.

Inspect the wires make sure they are connected properly on both ends and the wire casings are not damaned, cracked or melted. If they were put on the wrong plugs that should trigger a ses light but worth checking. make sure all the vacuum lines are connected andnot cracked. with the vehicle running use a spray bottle and spray aroung the vacuum hoses for wear (cracking) and the bottom of the throttle body to see if the vehicle bogs down, if so you need a throttle body gasket. You just need to check a few things to check.

You can buy the valve and cap at any professional auto parts store like NAPA. The bigger question is how you're going to replace it if the system is filled with refrigerant. Your best bet is to find a shop that has the special tool that can replace a valve core without having to evacuate the system. That'll cost less than removing all the refrigerant and refilling.

Stop Lamp Circuit Description
The STOP HAZ fuse in the IP junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the normally open stop lamp switch. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the switch contacts close and battery positive voltage is supplied to the center mounted stop lamp (CHMSL) and both left and right stop lamp assemblies. The left stop lamp is grounded at G304 and the right stop lamp is grounded at G304.

You need to hook up a scanner and see what is going on, any fault codes and such. Check fuel pressure, check the fuel is being injected, check to make sure the camshaft belt (if it has one of course)is turning and so on.
