Question about 1988 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

89 s10 has fuel fire everything fine except injector pulse

Ran new wires to computer changed injector and replaced computer
injector has power to it. before i changed computer injector was always on pouring gas, now still has power will not pour gas unless i ground it by wire that goes to computer then it pours still no pulse. accidently found this when i was using a test light to see if the circuit to the injector was completed test light lit up and injector started pouring.
this has got to be a simple ground or something because the truck ran fine (other than a small miss) prior to replacing cap rotor plugs and wires. any ideas on what wires that go to what could affect the computer grounding this circuit.? have already ran every wire in this circuit new. from computer pink wire runs to a pig tail that splits to ecm fuse, egr solenoid, and injector. blue wire runs straight to computer. thanks in advance as i am at a loss on this one.

My 91 s10 4x4 4.3 turns over no start has spark good fuel presure but no fuel coming out of injectors pore case down carb.wants to run. Had bad i.c.m. but replaced with good one .and new computer

If voltage to fuel injectors but no ground, have to check ignition module. The purple wire with white tracer carries rpm signal from distributor to computer, engine cranking, dc pulse on that wire, if nothing, check ignition module. W/o rpm signal, the computer won't ground fuel injectors.

1989 caprice with 350 tbi injectors won't pulse anymore

If you have spark, the computer is getting the signal to pulse the injectors.
If you have power but no ground pulse, you may have fried the driver in the computer again.
You could get a used computer from a junk yard to test it.
There could be a short in one of the injectors or the harness at the computer, or a break in the circuit from the computer, and that could kill the driver in the computer.

Hi I have an 87 s10 blazer 2.8L 4x4 and does not want to spray fuel into the throttle positioning sensor but fuel goes to and from it, I've checked the fuses replaced the fuel pump, it will fire with ether...

One side of the injector plug at each of the two injectors has 12 volts key on engine off.
The other side is grounded by the PCM computer to fire the injectors.
Put a test light across one of the injector plugs while cranking, Watch for flashing.

89 Chevy s10 does not get gas to engine replace fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injector.starts when I pour gas in engine

Sorry to say this but its the computer. to checkit you will have to buy a noid light and put it in the injector harness.. if it does not blink when you turn it over then the drivers are out in the computer. It can not be fixed. replace the computer. Just remember that injectors rarely go out. I have replaced two or three of them. computers do I have replaced twenty+.

Got a good one. my 91 coupe original 5.0 car. motor is new. it ran for two days then went to fire on third day and now will crank and crank but wont fire. got 42psi on fuel pressure 148psi compression on...

the fuel injectors are fired by computer producing a ground signal to them. so its unlikely they are fireing at once.possible power supplie problem but that would cause no injector pulse.beings how the engine was just replaced i would go over every wire and all grounds to make sure they are not shorted or pinched under a manifold or something.if you pull the plugs and they are black then you are getting to much gas. in wich case i would check to see if the fuel pressure regulator diaphram may be ruptured.if you take off the vacuum hose to it and look for moisture from gasoline. or leave hose off and try to start it if gas squirts out that regulator is bad and needs replacement
