My 1991 chevy s10 2.5l want crank it's getting red spark

Hi Austin:

Counting on my fingers I make that over 25 years old, so the maintenance history and mileage become very relevant.
I'd be considering an ignition tune-up as an appropriate first step.
Changing spark plugs, plug lead harness (wires), rotor, cap, coil, Points & condenser (or solid state components.
Chances are it will show a remarkable improvement.

New wires,plugs, and distribuator cap in but sounds awful (the rotar can only go in one way right?

The rotor is either "keyed" or screwed onto the advance plate under the distributor cap. Does your truck have points and condenser or a breaker-less inductive pickup? If points/condenser, you may want to replace them (condensers can be fickle little beasts). If inductive pickup, they usually either work or they don't. If distributor has a vacuum advance, make sure the vacuum diaphragm is working as it should; if centrifugal advance check for free movement and lubrication of the advance mechanism. After all that, if you are still having problems, check your coil, coil wire (did you replace it when you changed plug wires?), and timing. BTW, are you getting a check engine light and associated error codes? Good luck.

1995 vw gulf chico. hesitates when applying throttle or letting of throttle. idles fine and runs fine under constant acceleration. replacing plugs didnt fix it.

Have you checked the spark plug leads, disy cap and rotor. Does that model have points. Have you checked the coil. Some golfs have a rubber mount for the carby that splits and sucks air in. Have you changed the fuel filter. Is the air filter really dirty

Dirty throttle body, obstructed air flow/intake, HT leads, check the gaps on the spark plugs too, if you haven't already.
