my brake light came on and now it does not shut off.

check fluids and all they are fine...

bad switch or brake system (had 94 s-10, brake light on = bad ABS system... $2,000 for the DEALER, HAH!!!)

???

but i had another wierd experience. on a long drive good drive (hour plus of some "good" road driving or long trip) the engine is running at higher speed with less speed...

ex: norm 5th gear 2k = 80mph
after a while: 5th gear 2k = 65-70mph (kinda nice over stevens pass... but not good)

no slipping on the clutch. i know the tach is reading right (by sound) and i could not get a good speed check to see if my speedo was reading wrong, but it seemed right.

what to check?
