On the studs on the bottom be sure to soak them with a good penitrating oil over night. Then on the removal if you feel like they are binding work them back and forth. They may break but you should get new studs with the new one. On the head side just be carefull, if you break a bolt off in the head you have real problems then. Not really complex just use your head and don't be to forcefull.
Good Luck

The firing order for a Chevy s10 depends on which engine you have. 1.9L engine the firing order is: 1-3-4-2 . Distributor rotates counterclockwise. 2.0L engine the firing order is: 1-3-4-2 . Distributor rotates clockwise. 2.5L engine the firing order is: 1-3-4-2 . Distributor rotates clockwise. 2.8L engine the firing order is: 1-2-3-4-5-6 . Distributor rotates clockwise. 4.3L engine the firing order is: 1-6-5-4-3-2 . Distributor rotates clockwise.

SOURCE: I am trying to replace the starter on my 83 s10

I am afraid lifting the motor is the only EASY way to do it. While you do not actually need to take the motor out, you can disconnect the mounts and SLOWLY lift up on the motor via engine hoist, leaving just enough room to get the start in and out.

If you are sure you have fuel all the way up to the throttle body you probably have a bad injector(s) you should be able to see a spray of gas (very fine) while the engine is cranking. NO gas...No start

I have a 2001 Chevy s10 that I put an aftermarket air intake on. With high acceleration speeds, the car would lunge and stall. The engine would also quit. You need to make sure that you have no leaks in your intake manifold. If you have leaks in your manifold, your vehical will misfire. Check your air intake manifold by turning on your vehical on and running your hands up and down the air intake. If you feel air coming out, you have a leak. This needs to be corrected. I hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Need a engine diagram for a 2.8 ltr v6 showing rear main seal


Just a little advise before you jump to thinking the rear main seal is leaking. The vast majority of the oil leaks from these 2.8L motors are the rear intake manifold seal and the distributor o-ring. I would check them first. The rear main seal is in the lower rear of the motor, you have to remove the transmission to replace ti.

Eratic Ideling and Wants to die, Backfire through Intake.


I also have 2001 S10, 4.3 V6 Engine code W, 4x4, Automatic, 137,000 miles. About 3 weeks ago, I had intake manifold gasket changed and every since then has been doing the same as yours. I suspected that the yahoo who did the gasket change got the distributor in wrong. I had one other mechanic tell me my engine was shot but the distributor , firing order was all right. Then I had another mechanic tell me that the distributor was in wrong and they fixed it but it didn't run any better. They also said the catalytic converter was plugged causing back pressure in engine. This past weekend I cut the catalytic converters (2 of them) off at the y pipe and now the engine will actually idle but still a little rough (and loud) but now the O2 sensors are not able to do their job. They say catalytic converters are only good for about 10 yrs anyway. To get the one piece replacement cats pipe in you have to drop the tranny crossmember, and to drop that it looks like you have to remove the torsion bars or at least one.

Hope this helps.
