Question about 1988 Chevrolet S-10

2 Answers

2003 chevy s-10 want start sometimes

I get in push the clutch and it want start. All electrical comes on but it want start. I have to move the clutch peddle up and down, shift in and out of gears and keep turning the key back and forth until it finally starts. sometimes it after 30 sec others it several min. I may need my clutch adjusted but was unsure if that would help. It almost seems like there is some kind of safty part of the clutch that will not allow the truck to start until the clutch is depressed to a certain point. If there is would there be a way to bipass this?

    does it even sound like its trying to crank the motor? do you have a job that requires you to start and stop your vehicle often or do you run around a lot? a lot of times if your starter is going bad it will work when it wants to, then next thing you know, it quits. if you hear nothing, when its acting up, its probably the starter or even possibly the fuel injector. if it does attempt to crank, it could be something as simple as corrosion on the battery terminals or a loose connection.

There is a clutch switch on the end of clutch peddle this is for safety reasons so you dont launch into lets say your house if it was in gear when you tried to start the truck without pushing in the clutch .i dont recommend bypassing the switch though there are two wires that go to it if put together that will bypass the switch.

Hard to shift into first gear


Tighten clutch cable until the car would start to move when the clutch peddle is 50% depressed, Before you do that, with the clutch fully depressed and in 2nd gear, start the car and slowly let off the clutch. You may find that the clutch has to be released virtually all the way before the car moves. It should be at about that 50% I spoke about

You have a wire shorting out when you press the clutch. You will need to have help looking for it. Have someone set inside and press the clutch and look for a wire that is coming into contact with the linkage. Good Luck.

Fill the clutch reservoir with new brake fluid and kneel down beside the car, reach in with your hand and pump the clutch pedal up and down until it starts to return on it's own. Check the reservoir level, hop in the car and pump the pedal about twenty times with you foot, the clutch will self bleed and you'll be able to shift. If there is a leak somewhere, this problem will reoccur until the cause of the leak is fixed.

Replaced clutch but pedal will not move down at all now on 98 chevy 1/2 ton 2wd


Sounds like the release bearing is in backwards! No check valve. If the peddle was pushed, it would pop the slave cylinder piston. 2/ The clutch disc could be in backwards too! Either way, you will need to pull the tranny! Sorry! Frankster016
