Question about 1988 Chevrolet S-10

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.

My 2003 s10 started glitching. The instrument panel jumps, off and on, the rpm and speed gauage flicker off and on. Now it will not start.

Bad ground wires. Inside they will be at the steering column under the dash. And on on each side behind the side kick panels. Also check the battery to body ground and engine to body ground.

99 chevy s-10 2.2l the temperature is slowly increasing

if you have electric fans, make sure they are working and that there is sufficient coolant in the overflow tank and radiator. If you have a manual fan clutch, try spinning the fan with the engine off, It spins freely or goes around more than once with just a quick push, your fan clutch is bad and needs to be replaced. and it is a fan clutch...not a clutch people sometimes call it.

2003 suburban overheating when aprox stop in trafic for 10 minute

how hot does the temperature get? if it's just above the usual this could just be a different thermostat that the one you had before. If it is getting too hot, especially at idle, I would recommend checking the fan clutch (for mechanical fan) or the electrical fan operation, if the electrical fan doesnt come on, check fuses.
