The GM's are notorious for losing fuel pressure,could be fuel pressure regulator,or a weak fuel pump....also check for rusted fuel lines that will lose pressure when sitting..both feed and return lines...

SOURCE: Hard Start with trouble code 32

You should have your battery checked, it may be getting old and doesn;t have as much cold cranking power, I don;t think code 32 has anything to do with the slow cranking when cold.


Trouble Code 32 indicates that the Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve diaphragm is not where the ECM expects it to be. The ECM controls the diaphragm with a Pulse-Width Modulated (PWM) waveform. The EGR has a vacuum bleed solenoid that adjusts the vacuum applied to the EGR valve based on this pulse width. If there is sufficient vacuum at the EGR valve, a switch closes to send a signal back to the ECM. The absence of this signal is the bases for code 32.
The conditions for setting this code are:

  • no vacuum to EGR (switch open), and
  • Code 33 or 34 (MAF error) is not present, and
  • engine running and LV8 is less than 100, and
  • coolant temperature is > 118 deg F (48 deg C), and
  • the EGR solenoid duty cycle is < 65%, and
  • the above conditions are met for more than 25 seconds


Typical causes for this code include:
1) Faulty EGR valve-to-ECM connection
2) Plugged EGR passages and/or sticking EGR valve
3) Defective EGR valve
4) Defective ECM

SOURCE: 1999 Chevy S10 cranks but wont start

A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 seconds.do this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech

Tip

Long Life for Diesel Car Battery


Most often diesel car battery fails earlier than the petrol version mainly because of the necessity of cranking more for compression ignition. I would suggest that if you can be patient and cautious when starting from cold condition, the battery will not be fatigued.
AS YOU SWITCH ON WAIT FOR THE HEATER LIGHT AND THE RELAY TO CUT OFF BEFORE YOU CRANK. DEPENDING ON THE COLD CONDITION CRANK ONLY AFTER YOU SWITCH ON HEATER MAYBE A COUPLE TO SEVERAL TIMES.
slowly you will come to understand your engine and after the heater relay has cut offf there is ample battery amperage on the battery to turn the starter with ease and maybe a single revolution start.Once you engage the heater and do this process do not switch off the engine unless it is warm and running to the desired temperature.
Doing such a practice will make the battery regain lost power without a drain in the morning and possible early deterioration.
