    The fuel pump is good. It chugs but won't fully turn over, no backfiring. Before it stopped started the accelerator used to give out randomly.



  • rockalance Dec 19, 2008

    The tachometer would drop, and the vehicle would not respond to the accelerator. 15 or so seconds later it would kick back in



  • rockalance Dec 19, 2008

    Cable I think, and now it has stopped starting about 4 days ofter the accelerator episode



  • rockalance Dec 19, 2008

    this is a fuse panel that's NOT the one in the driver side dash?



  • rockalance Dec 19, 2008

    yes the dash lights come on. It's a 4.3L Vortec,

    I have a 1994 chevy cheyenne pi[ckup, it is putting when it's on, it will turn over but acts like it wants to shut off, could it be the fuel filter or fuel pump?

    under the hood there is a fuse panel with some relays on it... find the ones for ignition and fuel .... and perhaps there is one for the throttlebody.... i believe that is what it would have.

    replace them.... cheaper then the computer and that may very well be what it is

    that still leaves the fuel system and ignition system to troubleshoot... does the vehicle turn over ok.... any backfiring ?

If the tach was dropping then the motor was dying not the accelerator. The accelerator cable is a cable so it can not have intermitent problems. There is nu under hood fuse panel or box. The only fuse box is on the drivers side od the dash and the relays are in the glove box behind an access panel and if they are not in the glove box they are hanging on the firewall or inner fender. I do not know what your problem is but i am hoping to clarify some of the previous discussion for you. Now some questions. Are the dash lights coming on when you turn on the key? What motor? If is a 4.3L is it a vortec or throttle body? Give me more info and i will see if i can help. Remember I am not with the vehicle so I do not know what it is doing so the more info the more answers.

Have a 1994 blazer s10. keep replacing batteries and they go dead within few days! Where is a common short?


I'll start by saying if a battery goes dead you should be able to recharge it without having to replace it.
If it goes dead overnight something may be draining it, or the alternator may not be charging enough.
A mechanic would check alternator output and check all of the circuits for a power drain.

I have a Chevy S-10 pickup and the battery keeps going dead. Just bought a brand new one and in four days the truck wouldn't start again.


Most possible that there is a heavy LEAK on the circuit and thus drains the circuit. This must be probed using a series ammeter which must be able to isolate the drain circuit when the main switch is OFF.

Check the battery, cables and very importantly the ground cable. Remove the starter and have the autoparts store check it.

Check for loose cables from the battery to starter, the negative cable to ground, and wires on alternator, also check the alternator voltage with it running, should be between 14 and 15 volts.

1994 Chevrolet s10 will not start. The starter, battery, and alternator are good. Could it be the eprom chip or a fuse or something else electrical?


its lack of spark, or lack of fuel. Dribble some fuel into the open carb throat whilst cranking, if it fires even once, then spark is ok

if you have fuel injection it could be a bad throttle body injector. Spray methanol from a squeeze bottle into the open throat, if it fires even once, then its lack of spark
