Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

2 Answers

Won't Start Chevy S10 actually an Isuzu Hombre with a 4.3L V6. 1997 Won't start.  Fuel pump replaced after wouldn't start.  Total 60000 miles. Engine turns over won't start. Put Carb cleaner directly into throttle body, turned over, wouldn't start. Used a spark tester, good spark.  Tested, between coil and distributor cap. Light displayed bright and regular for each cylinder.

    I don't see why fuel pressure is revelant.  It didn't try to start or even kick with carb cleaner.   It needs to get some kind of fire when putting in carb cleaner or starting fluid.  If it trys to fire, then fuel pressure may be an issue.

    well if your getting spark and air you only have one thing left to make fire and thats fuel. if you are not getting the right fuel pressure you wont be getting enough fuel. in your first comment you did say you tried starting fluid. carb cleaner wont make it try and start.

Isuzu Hombre pickup, 2.2L Vortec, Won't Start.

You need four things for an engine to run. 1. fuel 2. spark 3. compression 4. timing (spark at the right time. By your post it seems you have fuel and spark and you probably have compression unless you blew a head gasket. That leaves the timing. Check the timing and/or the timing belt or chain whichever you have.

1998 Isuzu Hombre 2.2L cranks but won't start.

After trying to start, did you pull plugs & inspect them for wet from fuel, as you said you smelled fuel like it was flooding? Also keep in mind MAP sensor also provides info to VCM which then regulates fuel delivery & timing from info supplied by MAP sensor.
