Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
1998 S-10 makes noise on acceleration. It sounds like a vacuum hose is off or it is getting to much air. It runs fine and has no power loss but gurlges upon acceleration. It sounds like a VW bug when I accelerate. Any Idea what might cause this? I looked for a loose vacuum hose, thought it could be fuel filter or muffler. I have no idea.
Does it make the noise after you use the A/C? My 98 s10 makes a horrible sound when accelerating and has absolutely no power but only after I turn on the A/C, even after I turn the A/C off and let it sit for a few hours it will still make that noise and no power when I start it (to me it sounds like a big rig taking off). It's the catalytic converter getting all junked up and the engine not being able to breathe. I've been told you can just punch a hole in the catalytic converter and that will help, but it won't be able pass emissions like that. I just stopped turning on my A/C and I have no problems.

You could have a loose vaccum line but doubt it because there is no power loss,but you do have an exaust leak either because you have a bad gasket between the resinator pipe and exaust manifold or you have a cracked exaust manifold. have a mechanic check this out..please rate this...thanks
