I had my car on an incline while changing my rear end on my S10 (1999) pick up. Now the engine won't start. It turns over but won't start. Any suggestions as to what could be the problem? Thanks

Sounds like a completly differant problem happened at about the same time you replaced the rear ,i would go after starting problems,see if you have spark,gas ,compression.

Starter works fine but won't crank engine. the pick up has to be given a push first before it starts


If the starter is spinning when you try to start but doesn't spin the engine over then you most likely have teeth missing off the flywheel ring gear. The facts that you say you have to push it and then it starts means the flywheel position changes and the starter has good teeth on the flywheel to engage. To confirm this next time the engine won't crank over remove the starter and look inside at the flywheel for missing flywheel teeth.

It may be helpful for you to get some idea of the mechanism involved in operating the shock absorbers in your vehicle. Refer this information. It may then be a matter of finding the parts involved if replacement is required

Engine just cutting out even while driving


Sounds like misfire.
On this cars common problem is - intake manifold gasket goes bad creating big vacuum leak , what makes fuel mixture very lean and causing misfire and even stalling engine.
Usually gasket goes bad toward rear of the engine.
How to check :
Buy carburator cleaner spray .
Turn engine on and spray cleaner in to intake manifold gasket area , from begining to the end of it.
If engine start choking or picks up the idle speed - it is your problem. Choking indicates big vacuum leak ,
idle increase indicates small vacuum leak.

Gas not getting to the carburator. Starter turns


Check all of the fuel lines very carefully for breaks or cracks in the fuel lines, especially between the fuel tank and the fuel pump.

If the fuel lines are all in good condition then you can safely assume that the problem is in the fuel pump and you will need to replace it. (If the fuel pump is in really bad shape the engine oil on the end of the engine oil dip-stick will smell like fuel)

Need to repair manual transmission gears or rear end gears? My 97 S-10 pickup broke down after a hundred mile trip. I was driving on a hill and shifted into 3rd gear but when I pressed the gas it didnt...


If the trucks moves in 1st gear it wouldn't be the rear end. In a manual transmission 2nd and 3rd are on the same shaft. If you are mechanically inclined or have a good friend that is go on-line to faxonautoliterature. Follow the instructions on the home page and for between $25 and $40 you can pick up a GM service manual for your transmission that will help you repair your transmission in stead of replace. They also list a service manual for the complete truck for $129 if you want. Hope this helps.

S-10 Pick Up Wont Start


Did you pinch your gas line or break continuity in the fuel pump wiring? If it ran fine before, I would check your fuel line and wiring. Goes along the inside of the drivers side frame rail. YOu also could have jacked it up at the right angle where sentiment in the tank settled somewhere to where the fuel pump sucked it up. Make sure when you turn the key on, wait to turn the engine over and see if you hear the fuel pump purging the system.

Auto g/box broken


Hi,

Am afraid that it is so. To my knowledge, most 2000 Volvo S40 are front wheel drive while a number are all wheel drive. Either of which would have a serious transmission problem when towed by the rear end up.

Sorry.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
