Ever give it a tuneup this decade or last 60k miles.????????????

get the FSM. buy one , used.on fleabay, and be ready next time.


go to login and read it.

also at mitchels.

what engine size.

is car a CARB. (yes)

on all cars, carb or EFI , starting is same (basics)

example. (classical)

does it crank robustly, yes,

Does engine have 150PSI WOT compression, times 4. (yes)

does it have, spark on all 4 cylinders and is it timed right. (strobe it for time to spec)

answer, yes, (examples) and is timed right.

now we land on fueling

in this case its a carb.

the first test is , is the fuel at the top mark for for float level.

yes, good, no , pump bad. or filter clogged.

ok next.

is the choke on,, but not 100% if 100 % it floods,

is it ok? the choke plate.?


ok i got every thing it takes to start and its not flooding.

so what is wrong, easy, the carb is TOAST , get a new one.

oops, nobody sells them. its too old a car. in most cases.

but in my cause, i rebuild them.

i restore old cars and motorcycles, (stock)

so can do it. some take 3 used junk carbs to get one working.

and a kit. i find the carb kit first.

then boil it out (Berrymens) then kit it and tune it like the FSM directs.

there did it all end to end.

most 28yo carbs are useless and long gone.

(cept after im done)

i put in butterfly shaft bushing, and kit them.

if they are corroded to dust the hit the trash.

1998 s-10 pick up wont start

A good parts counter person might have an idea of what fuel system parts fail such as mass airflow sensors and throttle position sensors. Of course first rule out the fuel filter which on an older S10 I believe was hidden at the front of the engine on the driver's side. Often what the parts a store has in stock is an indicator of what fails.

Fuel pump runs &runs and the truck wont start.if i wait long enough it will start but runs bad sometimes.

Have you replaced the fuel filter? It could be clogged, causing the fuel to take longer to get to the injection system. Replace the filter and, and any inline filters if equipped (under hood). If this does not help, consider using an injector cleaner (I recommend Sea Foam) of which you can pick up at a local auto parts dealer. If this does not help either, consider then replacing the fuel pump itself - it's possible it will run, but may not be pumping fuel, or very little fuel - a sign that it's about to go.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
