1999 S10 Pickup miss fire

My truck started to cut out at all speeds just for about 1 second a month ago. I had the spark plugs/wires replaced, fuel filter replaced, coil pack, replaced, new injectors, fuel drained and replaced, fuel pump tested, checked for exhuast leaks and it still miss fired on 1 and 3, and runs worse than before. Now the check engine light came on and it sounds like only half of the engine is running, 2.2L 5-speed. The truck has 150,000 miles. Could this be the throttle position sensor like was mentioned on 8/15, if so where is this sensor located? HELP!

Your throttle position sensor should be located on the throttle body opposite of where the throttle cable hooks on too. Look for a small black box on the other side with wires leading into a connector. get your codes read and re post them it could be a simple fix.

Why would my1999 s10 start missing out going down the road ?


Check fuel pressure to see if a fueling problem. Some stores rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Check for possible trouble codes that may indicate a problem.

Gas, air, spark, and compression- one of them is wrong or missing for the engine to misfire.

you will need to drain the fuel in the tank and replace the fuel filter and plugs after a couple years the fuel will go bad and it will plug the filter and foul the plugs if you do those 3 things and in that order it should start it is important even though you have good fuel pressure that you replace the filter to prevent damage too your injectors

I apologize for the late response...Due to the bad economic situation this site has had a substantial (+50%) increase in the number of questions being asked in the last four months.

the spark unit is shorting out to system ground. remove the spark unit and look carefully at where it is mounted and look for small cracks in the electrical insulation material that was poured into it at the spark unit factory. if water gets into this area, havoc occurs.
