Question about 1988 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

My blazer doesn't have any get up and go

I have recently replaced the tranmission and had a full tune up done but my blazer has to warm up for quite awhile before I drive it or it justs keeps dying on me. And then once I do get it going and I stop at a light it takes a little bit to get it going up to speed.

SOURCE: 97 chevy blazer thermosat

chevy's are pretty strong, but you really need to change that thermostate as soon as possible. if you want to check and see if that's what it really is. take the thermostate and put it in a pan of water on the stove. let the water start boiling for a minuete then take a fork and fish it out if it is working properly it will be open, if not it will still be closed. good-luck ray

SOURCE: 2000 s10 Blazer dies very 3-6 weeks for no reason

i would check your ignition system. you would need a meter for this but look for broke or loose connections. if it was a fuel problem i dont think it would just start up after 20 minutes. or you might try your ignition switch. if its shorting or something then ya well it would cut your engine off real quick

SOURCE: 2000 Chevy Astro Van while driving just stops running

Hey I had my rotor and all that stuff replaced on my 2000 astro van, Intermittently it would not run, The problem was I hit a puddle one day and water flew up on top of the roter like 3 drops, it created a trace( it was arching) Thats why it was intermittent.Take a look at the cap look for like a discoloration on it clean it and put it back on.Sounds too easy but remember I had all new parts too.

SOURCE: was running great, quit running when in gear or given gas

Just a couple of questions before we start, what is you engine displacement, how many miles do you have on the vehicle, is it 2 or 4 wheel drive and is the service engine light on.
Let me know.

I would replace both o2 sensors and take the mass air flow sensor off and clean it with a non-chlroated brake cleaner.Also a tune-up sure won't hurt sparkplugs,plug wires,distributor cap and rotor.Your fuel milage should increase.

If the fluid is full and there are no external leaks, and it is still malfunctioning, I would try to flush and refill the transmission with new fluid to see if this rectifies the problem. If it doesn't, then there is a problem with a shift solenoid where the transmission will have to be reserviced and perhaps torn down and rebuilt again (I know this is dreadful). Try to see if there are any codes stored on the computer for the transmission that might point to a clue about the problem you are experiencing with it.
