Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

Stuttering and hesitation in my idle and when i begin to accelera

If the motor is idleing it stutters and acts like it wants to die sometimes it will die on me if i let it idle for about 5-10 minutes. Then when i am in drive its fine but when i am accelerating the motor stutters and hesitates, unless i really give it some gas then it will get up and go. I cant pass emissions either if that helps to diagnos the problem.Im thinking it might be the oxygen censor because that is what people have said so far, what do you guys think ?

The truck is cutting out has no power dying when you stop wont idle right after it gets warm and won't idle at all

Not sure what you are working on, but it sounds like your coolant temperature sender is bad. When the truck is supposed to come out of phase lock loop it is not and is acting like the choke is on all of the time.

Motor low idle problems

You need a carburator adjustment. I'm guessing it is a 302cid? It's burning too lean

Idles rough and acts like its going to die then revs up....acts like its not getting gas sometimes....when under pressure the air blows out of the defrost instead of the panel

you have a vacuum problem, I would have the intake gasket checked or you can spray carb/choke cleaner around the intake where it meets the heads and if the rpm of the motor reacts then you have a leak, my explorer was the same way, idle raised and lowered,idled rough, stalled, and my vents acting up. new intake gaskets a month ago and wham runs great. My yukon i did 2 days ago as it had the same actions and yep it runs great now. I'm sure its your intake.

I have a 1997 Ford Escort Wagon and I don't have a problem while I am driving, but when I slow up to a stop. The motor will come to a rough idle when I stop and sometimes the motor will die. I can restart...

try this test
place in neutral with the park brake on
start the engine if it idles alright put your foot on the brake
if it falters or plays up ,it is a vacuum leak in the brake booster
replace the booster

Dies at Idle and decelration - won't start for 15

Hello. I bet your problem is one of these two things. 1: your timing is out. Making it run at such a low idle that it stalls itself out. 2: your truck is running too rich and flooding itself out. Just adjust theb timing a bit and lean the motor out a bit and you should be as good as new! Hope this helps!
