Question about 1996 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Truck won't start every time but probally 95 percent of the time.

I bought this truck about a week ago. It is a 1996 Chevy S-10. It has a new 4 cyl that was put in about 50,000 miles ago the reciept says anyways. This has happened to me three times now where I can drive my truck somewhere and it would run fine there. The next morning or even like 6 hours later I will hop in it and it will crank and crank but just won't fire up. I poured a little gas into my air intake hose and everytime I did it would fire right up and run until that gas I poured in there would be gone. Only once has it ran good and I shut it off for about two minutes and started it back up and drove off and it sputtered and died. I got it to fire back up but had to keep slamming the gas pedal to give it a little gas at a time to sputter all the way home where it died again and couldnt start it till the morrning. I believe it is my fuel pump I want a second opinion and also info how to replace the pump if it is that.

Bought a used 1996 s 10 4 cyl. what kind of


Use the cheapest stuff you can find that has ethylene glycol in it.
Walmart sells both Dex-Cool (more expensive) and 'Mixes with any color' coolant of various brands. Just get the kind that mixes with any color and you'll be fine for up to 5 years, according to the label.

A used truck can accomodate the coolant that is inexpensive and have no problems.

Good luck on this one.

After you replace the distributor you have to do a relearn. Was this done? Most likley it will be either the crankshaft position relearn was not done or the distributor in not timed correctly.
