Have you tried any fuel system cleaner through tank, just to see if that might help. Perhaps running low on fuel, sucked up some dirt from bottom of tank.

I have a chevy s10 2.2 2003 truck and one day it ran about five miles. then stalled. it started back up idled fine but put it in gear. stalled again. had to get towed home replaced the fuel filter,truck...


When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

Car starts but can only rev engine to 200 rpms then breaks down


if it is ur fuel then add a few litres or more of methylated spirits( its 96% ethanol should not harm ur car, always works for me) have u checked leads plugs etc it does not take much for electrical problems.it is just time consuming and frustrating. also i would check air filter and the airbox for water or moisture,even check all vacuum hoses,check dipstick for milky color emulsion u never know.i would go through checking everything thoroughly from one point to another,chek main lead(i have had my car packit in from something simple like the main lead so its probably something simple hopefully) good luck and cheers!

Check the crankshaft position sensor. If the plug is loose or the sensor itself is bad it will cause similar problems
