Why would my1999 s10 start missing out going down the road ?


Check fuel pressure to see if a fueling problem. Some stores rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Check for possible trouble codes that may indicate a problem.

Gas, air, spark, and compression- one of them is wrong or missing for the engine to misfire.

Tyhe first thing you shd always do on any car with starting problems is to check the spark on the plugs to localize the problem to either fuel or ignition problem. If u have an old spark plug lying around, remove one spark plug wire and attach it to the plug and lay it against the block. If it fires, when the engine turns, then it will most likely be fuel problem.
If it turns out to be fuel problem, you can prove it by using starting fluid carefully into the breather area.

There is no simple answer, there are to many variables. If you have access to a scan tool, pulling the codes should help. Without them its back to old school hunt and peck method. At this point we need to narrow down the problem. You need to test for spark.
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the spark plugs.
  2. Remove the spark plugs and install the spark plug wires to each spark plug.
  3. Ground (do not hold spark plug) the spark plug; check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.
Crank the engine for no more than 2 seconds at a time to prevent flooding the engine with gasoline.
If you have spark, You will want to make sure you have fuel injector pulse, along with fuel pressure. If you have spark ..simply spray some starting fluid in through the air filter and hold the gas pedal to the floor and crank it over while spraying. If it fires up, you know it is fuel related( fuel pump, regulator, or ECM if no injector pulse) . If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well. This should give you a few things to test and check to start you on your way to narrowing it down. If you have no spark then look at ignition coil connection for power and trace through to the distributor( if equipped ). If it is DIS( no distributor). It may be the Crank sensor or the ECU. The crank shaft sensor has a tendency to fail on these as well.
The ECU uses the signal sent from the Crank sensor to trigger the spark and fuel injectors. ( make certain you have checked all fuses)

Engine turns over but won't start. plugs and wires changed


A diagnostic check of the vehicle will pinpoint your no starting problem,but if that isn't an option for you and you want to do the work yourself, follow these step's:
Check for spark WHILE TRYING TO CRANK THE ENGINE. If no spark is present,check to see if there is power coming from the switch during cranking. If you have spark,check to see if you are getting fuel. If you aren't getting fuel,check your fuel filter(it coud be clogged) and check ALL fuse's. If you aren't getting spark AND fuel,then check the crank sensor as it is the controller for spark and fuel delivery.

Is the timing belt broken?

Do you have spark?

Do you have fuel pressure?

Start with the basics. If you have fuel pressure and no spark it could be a crank sensor. If you have spark and fuel pressure maybe a crank sensor. If you have spark and no fuel pressure maybe a fuel pump. If you have fuel pressure and no spark you could also have a broken timing belt which will also make the engine sound like it is turning over faster than normal.
