SOURCE: my s10 blazer you have to keep pumping the gas to

Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. There should be 60 to 65psi with the fuel line primed and engine not running, with the engine running there should be a 5psi drop. Any other reading will give you starting or running issues. You can try replacing the fuel filter first which is located on the inside frame rail under the driver's door, but keep in mind that the spider fuel system in your blazer is know to go bad. The fuel pressure regulator is the most common and the fuel pump also is common to go bad with a life expectancy of around 150,000 miles and anything more then that is on borrowed time. Good luck and keep me posted, start with the fuel filter replacement and checking the fuel pressure at the shredder valve. Not do not try to start the blazer by poring fuel in the throttle body, it's been know for the excess fuel to catch fire and burn up the spider injector nozzle in the manifold.

SOURCE: '98 S10 4 cyl. 5 speed: Sudden high idle, now surges.

Go to your local shucks or auto zone and they can check any codes behind your check engine light and it's free. It sounds like one of two things a O2 sensor or your mass airflow sensor but they will tell you for sure

SOURCE: 2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies.

I doubt very much this is electrical. Rather do a visual inspection for vacuum pipes that are leaking or have become dislodged especially around the throttle body(Where the throttle cable is connected to) and plenumb chamber. If you find a place that looks like a pipe needs to be connected there, hold it closed with your finger and see if the revs pick up slightly. If it does then look for the pipe that needs to go there. You shouldnt have any pipes hanging loose around the engine bay. If you dont find anything on the engine itself follow every little pipe to where it goes/connects to and do the same. This costs nothing and a mechanic will charge you an hours' worth of labour for doing the same. The engine's fuel/air mixture is being leaned out somewhere. You can perhaps have the CO content tested to confirm, as this is relatively inexpensive.

Nissan van stalls when starting


Turn the the key to run position with cas cap off listen for fuel pump to buzz 3-5 seconds fuel pump keeps system pressurised when off or pressurises quickly when you try to start it. it is very commom for ground wire at the pump to fail with poor connection. When changing these pumps I often disreguard the original connections and carefully solder wire directly to the pump. to be sure you should use a inline fuel guage to test the fuel system accurately

You might have what is called vapor lock. The fuel gets so hot that it boils in the fuel pump or the lines. Do this test spay water on the fuel pump to cool it off . ( this only works for a few minutes before it gets to hot and vapor locks again ) If you can Keep the engine heat Off the lines and the Fuel pump it might help. If you have metal fuel lines near a heat source rap them with something such as rubber fuel line sliced down the middle to keep the heat off them If you are using an aftermarket electric fuel pump relocate it down low near the gas tank ( they work better pushing than pulling ) away from any heat source such as exhaust If your using the stock fuel pump try replacing it with a new one it might be getting weak Replace the fuel filter while your at it.

Engine stalls right after start up has fuel press.


Fuel pump. It may have some pressure but not enough pressure to run the car properly. We just had to replace the pump on my son's 97 s10. It had a little pressure but not enough to run. Would start up and die as soon as you started into the throttle. They can check the pressure at a repair shop - you need a special guage.

Starving for gas when the weather is hot


hmmm sounds like ignition module under distributor rotor button is opening up when it gets hot.after cool down will restart suggest you replace it , it's fairly inexpensive and they are very prone to heat related failure.
