Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
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

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? Getting any codes stored? Converter not rattling,when you bang on it with your hand? Oil clean,try full synthetic. PCV system tight,no leaks.Don't throw parts at it. Always test,to be sure you even need to change parts.I'am not a fan of injector cleaner, but in your case!!

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.

yes sounds like the fuel filter is clogged when push gas pedal put it in clear flood mood and resets the fuel system and starts over thats why it starts when push to floor creates back pressure sucks debri bottom of filter
