Question about 1999 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

S10 Won't Start

My S10 pick up won't start. It cranks, but will not start. Do you think it would be the fuel pressure regulator? I had it on jacks for a couple of days while replacing rear end. When I took it off the jacks, it will not start now. A couple days later it started right up and worked fine then I jacked it up again because Belltech labeled the leaf springs wrong. Now it won't run again. Please let me know if you think it is the fuel pressure regulator.

It would be the fuel pump, it would not be the fuel pressure regulator.

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.

You need to find out if the fuel pump is working, getting gas up to the engine.
If the pump is working and seen to have good fuel pressure, check ignition by checking for spark.. To work, the engine needs, you know, gas, air, spark, and compression. Why people say, check for gas, check for spark.

My 94 fors Taurus cuts out while driving and sometimes will not start. It cranks but won't start. We changed the fuel pump, spark plugs and distributor cap, but it is still cutting out while driving...


are there any codes? have you checked the pressure in the fuel line. you may have a bad fuel pressure regulator. or a bad crank position sensor. spray starter in the throttle body and see if it starts

1990 Chevy s10 won't start, have replaced plugs, wires, timing chain, fuel pump,distributor, starting fluid nothing helps


Have you checked for a broken timing chain, that would be the next step. Make sure number one cylinder is up on compression stroke when the timing mark is on 0 degrees BTDC on the crank pulley. Pull the plug and feel the pressure as it nears TDC.

My 96 crown vic police interceptor, cranks won't start without spraying starter fluid.. the car won't start without spraying starter fluid into air intake hose to carb...


starting fluid is a thing of the past. dont use it. this car doesnt have a carb, its a throttle body/ electronic fuel injection system. you most likely have a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator issue. test the fuel pressure, should be anywheres from 35-50 psi

On first crank fuel pump doesnt hold pressure and has to be cranked on for several seconds


sounds like its not working properly, the fuel pump pumps or it does't, then goes to regulator this is where pressure is adjusted. check fuel pressure with gauge, sometimes even new fuel pumps don't pump enough fuel. most fuel injected cars have over 50 pounds pressure.
