Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

Open Question

1987 Chevy Blazer S-10 4x4 v-6 2.8 injection

Emissions are high will not pass inspection and have changed everything
Plugs, wires, dist-cap,rotor,fuel filter, PVC.

What happens is when I sit idled everything is ok, but when I take off the car wants to stall it acts as if the gas is not getting to it. I had it sitting for awhile So I took it out on the freeway and ran it for 2o minutes at 70 miles an hour.

Ran great but when I stopped and tried to take off acked like it wants to stall.

I believe it is the vacumm lines they are old and I will replace them but need to make sure that is the only reason and also can you send me a complete diagram of my V-hoses
Thank you

    it's not the vacume lines. vacume has no effect on fule delivery to the engine nor emmisions

    try replaceing your fule pump and running some injector cleaner.

    you also might have a blocked converter.

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

Hotter plugs, are for when your getting too much oil on them. Fuel filter has no effect on emissions. Did you put a light on timing? Air filter clean? EGR working? Check 02 Sensor?

IN your distributer under the rotor is a magnet and a pickup coil (the magnet is known as a pole piece) check your pickup coil for corrsion (green in color) and the module and also check pole piece for cracks in the magnet where the rivets hold it together. sometimes oil wicks up around the distributer shaft because of housing wear or the pieces just wear out over time.

I have a 87 s10 pick that won't pass emissions did cap rotor plugs wires and emissions r still to high any suggestions


Many things can be the cause for high emissions. Dirty air filter, vacuum leaks, timing set wrong, wrong rpm, bad o2 sensor, defective egr, back cat. converter,sensors out of range ect. ect. It's highly unlikely anyone can guess and really help you. My best advice is find a good mechanic that deals in emission related diagnostics and have it professionally done. Will most likely be a lot cheaper than replacing a lot of parts that won't fix it.

Have your fuel injection pump calibrated. Might as well have it checked for leaking injectors.

You change oxygen sensors? thoses are now considered part of of tuneup on high mileage engines,plus if you drive highway for 30-49 miles before going gettting emissions testing you get better results.

MY 2001 CHEVY BLAZER WOULD NOT PASS INSPECTION BECAUSE IF EMISSION PROBLEMS


Its generally a Catalytic Converter. Get a cheap one and get your emission passed. I've replaced everything, tuned everything, done everything, tried every trick...When I gave up and had a $100 Cat put on, It set a record for the cleanest emissions ever. Go figure.

My 2000 Nissan Frontier won't pass emissions for an unknown reason. It isn't coming up with any codes that would explain this. I had the mass air flow sensor replaced about 2 months ago. The check engine...


Well what kind of numbers are they getting from the exhaust on the smog machine? Are the hydrocarbon numbers close to passing level or are they at gross polluter level? There are a lot of factors involved with high emission numbers. Sometimes just doing a basic tune-up can help clean up the numbers. Things like making sure the air filter is clean. Changing the fuel filter,plug wires, and spark plugs can help. Is the catalytic converter ok? Could have a bad batch of gas also. You could try running some fuel injection cleaner in the tank to help clean up the numbers. And the O2 sensor can cause problems with the emissions. It would be hard to pinpoint the exact problem with out a physical inspection of the vehicle.
