Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

96 chevy s-10 will not start in the am

I can spray starting fluid in bowl on top and it will crank most of the time whats wierd is if i apply brake to shift into gear it will stall the engine but after running for awhile it wont do that anymore. Also seems like it idles smooth but when i start driving and press brake so i can put it in gear it kills the motor unless i take my foot off quickly. anyway later on after it has been running for about 1 hr. the brake pedal does not affect it anymore
but still feels like it isnt getting enough gas , air ? dont know what it is but it just dont have the power it should when you get on it pretty hard sometimes it even jerks

very possible if you have a security light or anti theft light coming on flashing yes that's the problem is not check for spark anD fuel if you have spark try spraying starter fluid through the intake if it cranks then you may have a problem with a cam sensor

1992 Chevy Lumina euro 3.1 liter enginecar has been running and runs real well every now and then you wont to start. I spray starting fluid in it and it starts runs real well this is happen about 10 times...


its and old car, and id bet never once tuned up in last decade.
did i guess right?
no spark, well, it takes spark at all cylinders not 1.
is spark good out of coil to distributor top?

if not, then we insert the diagnostic jumper to the DLC port
OBD1 ECU, back in 92. (old systems)
then crank for 5 seconds
then release key
then watch the ECU tell you why it fails to make sparks.

the cmp sensor instigates spark. think of dummer boy in band
then the ECU sees that and creates all spark.
via the IGNITOR, the IGNitor charges the spark coil and BAM
spark , if the cmp (sensor) or ignitor fails the ecu sees that
and reports it, all you do is LOOK.

Which senser controls the starting of my chevy s10 it will not start


There is no sensor that controls starting. No starts are usually from lack of gas or loss of spark. That is, if the battery is strong enough-charged up enough-that it will crank the engine over.
If your engine is cranking over, check for a fuel problem: spray some starting fluid into the air intake-take the big air boot off where it connects to the engine and spray a shot or two of starting fluid in there. Then try starting. If the engine fires a bit and tries to run, then you know it wasn't getting gas. You will then need to test and check if the fuel pump is working and putting gas up to the engine.
If the starting fluid made no difference, then checking for spark would be next-maybe the ignition system has a problem.
Let me know what you found out, and we can go from there. Have any repairs been done recently? What year S-10, what size engine, and how many miles? Did this just start happening? The more you can tell us, the better chance we have of helping you.

2000 chevy s-10 died on highway will crank will not turnover bought new battery


spray brake cleaner into throttle body and try to start. If it starts your fuel pump failed most likely. If it doesnt fire most likely crank sensor or ignition module failed.

Car died on road engine turn over but will not start


Try spraying starting fluid into the air intake, with the help of someone else starting the car. As they crank over the car, spray the starting fluid into the air intake. Do this for at least 15 seconds. If the car tries to start up the fuel pump has probably gone bad. When turning the key to the on position do you hear the fuel pump humming? If the pump is not humming the fuel pump is probably bad.

96 Chevy Cavalier brake pedal to the floor


First check your brake fluid.
Either you have a failing brake booster, or you have developed a leak in one of your brake lines. If your brake line is leaking, it should be pretty evident, i.e. oily looking substance sprayed underneath the vehicle or in the wheel wells, if the booster is leaking (the large black/silver almost bowl shaped thing directly in front of the driver under the hood against the back wall) there will most likely be fluid dripping down the firewall below it, if your brake fluid is extremely low/empty, you probably have a leak, that could be at the booster or on a line, or even at the caliper/drum. If it is empty (which can make your ABS light, light up) then you have yourself a leak. Also, if the fluid is really low, you could try adding some, although you will have air in the lines if it was low enough to floor the brake, but you might be able to find the leak if you refill the fluid and cause it to spray from the leak again. Have someone watch under the vehicle while you do this.

Engine will crank but will not turn over


Do this, take the top off the carb, being careful not to damage the gasket. Then take some carb cleaner and clean out the bowl and floats. Remove the needle valve and clean it out. Put it all back together and filling the bowl with carb cleaner. Start it with the starting fluid. Once you run the carb cleaner through it, it should start to run on it's own. Whatever you do don't shut it off for about 20-30 min unless you have to.
