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.

My 1996 chevy blazer has no take off power but changes gears fine

Hello, with lack of power from take off can be several issues. Let me help you on some to make sure that you don't go broke with trial and error. First of all, make sure you have a good clean fuel filter on it, and go ahead and spray some carburetor cleaner in carb and make sure that is clean. Inspect your plug wires, pull one plug to see if it is not black from miss firing. A LOT of times just those issues looked at and fixed,cleaned or replace will solve this. BUT if problem remains then it is possible it is cam shaft senor, that is located near your distributor AND that might have to be replaced\. Keep me informed. <mike>

If all the coils are giving spark now,then you moat likely have gas fouled plugs now,so change them out with new ones,all 8 of them.If you do not have spark on all plug wires,pull the timing belt cover,and align the cam shaft and the cam,to see if the belt has jumped.If It hasn`t,replace the crankshaft sensor.

My 1986 Chevy S-10 Blazer stopped running while i driving

If your engine timing is good, (meaning the cam is timed to the crank, and distributor) and you have spark and fuel, your engine will run. Try a compression test, and back up and re-test fuel and spark. Make sure the spark works with a HEI spark tester. (Coils can go bad and give a weak spark)

1995 lumina cranks but will not start

Does it have the anti-theft system, if so check for the two wires that go to the ignition switch and make sure they are not broken. If they are they will need to be fixed in order to get it too run again
