Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

1 Answer

S10 has very high idle when cold and sticks to the gas when warm

My 1992 S10 blazer with Vin code Z (TBI) has a very high idle when started cold. It stays at 2000 rpm for about 10 to 15 minutes then falls gradually back to 600rpm. When it is warm and i touch the gas it sticks to high rpm for about half a second. The Service engine soon lamp is on, but i don't have a read out tool. I cleaned the idle air intake, but it made no differance. Does anyone know how to read out a code from flashing off the SES light? I like to know what parts can give the problem before just order some parts.

    Today i checked the voltage of the throttle position sensor; it was 0,57 Volt at closed throttle, and gradually got higher with more throttle. So i think the TPS is ok. I short circuited the read out connector for flashing codes; it only gives code 12 so no problems there.The service engine soon light got out when I started the engine. Still have the high rpm with cold engine. Air filter is new, throttle body is cleaned and the throttle plates close neatly. A vacuum leak would give problems with both cold and warm engine. Anyone any further ideas?

You need to replace the throtle body controll sensor. Also you may want to make sure all your linkage from the pedal to the throtle body is cleaned and lubed correctly. While playing in this direct area. Your throtle body is only 4 bolts away. Why not get some carb cleaner and get to know your truck just a litle more.

If this is a carborator, then you need to turn my warmup idle down. there are 2 sets of idles on carborators. the one to warm up the engine, automatic choke or pin settings. Get a Chilton, find out which idles pin is for what. and play a litle bit.

I think you have a throtle body so I would also check the automatic air intake sensor. It could be going bad. Check your filter and make sure its clean.

hope all this helps.

1992 Chevy S10 2.5L-4 cylinder. just started today outta no were. it idles really rough and pops then when i step on the gas it sputters and pops also smokes a little. help please..


My 1990 S10 pick-up had a similar problem too. It would start up fine (while the engine was cold) then once the engine warmed up it would idle very rough, sputter, and even stall out. My grandpa and I found what was wrong finally. The fuel distributor had been cracked, so when the engine warmed up it would miss (giving either too much or not enough fuel). So I recommend that you check that. Hope this helps.

1990 full size blazer starts fine idles then dies


sounds real easy either a bad idle air control solenoid or more likley a blown throttle body gasket. to test fro a blown gasket, with engine running and cool spray carb cleaner or brake cleaner around base of tb were it bolts to intake. when it hits the bad area, should idle down and be normal for a second or 2. iac is possible,try this first since its so common and let me know

Getting to much gas to engine in chevy s10 blazer


You have TBI, check the two injectors for a "V" or cone style, spray pattern. There shouldn't be any dripping. Also check the TBI assembly for any leaks. The fuel pressure regulator is mount at the rear part f the TBI. If the diaphram is damaged it could cause exsesive fuel to dump into the engine.

My 1992 Chevy Blazer S 10 is revving really high when it starts


i have an s10 that would rev up high. i hooked up my scanner and it didn't give me much information, so i started researching. it took a while. i got my manual out and looked up all of the sensors in the fuel system. i even paid some web site $10 for help {wasred my $10} and they were no help. so i researched all of the sensors and found out their symptoms when they malfunctioned. the culprit turned out to be my water temp sensor. here is how it works, when you first start your engine the water is cold, the sensor sends out the information to the brain [warm me up] so your engine idles high to help reach operating temp quicker. when the sensor malfunctions it will send the wrong info to the brain [i'm cold] so the brain revs up the engine in an effort to get warm .i replaced the water temp sensor and the engine is back to normal.
