1997 Chevy S-10 6 cylinder all of a sudden cut off and won't start back. It will turn over but seems like is not getting gas or is not firing one.


probably a fuel issue on this one. get a big hammer and have someone crank the vehicle whikle you bang the bottom of the tank. If it tries to start-suspect fuel pump.

My husband said his 2000 Chevy S10 would sputter and stall continuously. Just happened yesterday. Took it to Pep Boys. They diagnosed it as a bad fuel injector. He has a 4 cyclinder manual transmission....


I had the same problem with my 1992 S10 Pick Up. Found the problem to be with the fuel pump. Replaced the fuel pump and it ran like a charm.
The fuel pump is located in the gas tank.

Water in gas tank and fuel lines on a Chevy 1998 S-10......wont throttle up at all, will run at idle.....when throttle up it chikes itself out like it flooded...but will idle as low as 400rpm..have changed...


THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A RESET SWITCH ON THE FUEL PUMP. IF YOU HAVE WATER IN THE FUEL SYSTEM THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS REMOVE IT, PHYSICALLY. DROP THE TANK, CHANGE THE FUEL FILTER, REMOVE THE THROTTLE BODY, AND GET RID OF THE WATER. AND DON'T FORGET TO BLOW IT OUT OF THE FUEL LINES.

WATER MOLECULES ARE BIGGER THAN FUEL MOLECULES AND WILL NOT GO THROUGH THE FUEL INJECTOR NOZZLES. YOU MAY EVEN HAVE TO REPLACE THE FUEL INJECTORS IF THE WATER DID DAMAGE THEM.

1996 CHEVY S-10 WONT START UNLESS I SPRAY STARTING FLUID IN


The Fuel pump is is in the gas tank. 
The Fuel relay is in your glove compartment behind a panel on the left corner and the realy i believe is the middle one.
The Fuel filter is on the inside of the frame rail under the driver's door.
Note: the fuel pressure for the 4.3 I think is 66 psi and drops 6 to 10 psi at idle.
Good luck and hope this helps

exactly right, theres trash in the tank. keep changing or cleaning the filter and get the gas out of it. replace with good gas and pick up something at the auto to dry up the water in tank. auto guy should be able to help pick something. hope it helps

Fuel guage reads half way and the truck runs out of gas


The float that helps detect fuel level is most likely broken. You or a mechanic will have to remove the fuel pump from the gas tank and check and possibly replace the float. Merry Christmas.
