Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

Have a 2001 S-10 flex fuel 5 speed. Truck likes to stall out (nothing on dash comes on), shuts off like someone shut the key off. Have replaced: plugs, wires, crank shaft senor, and fuel filter. Can be going 20 or 60 doesn't matter. Just driving along and nothing! Pull over and it starts right back up every time. Any suggestions?

Wiggle the key in the truck when the truck is running. Your losing fuel or spark. Check connections in the fuse panel. Check wiring harnesses for tight connections. Email me back., Good Luck Jim

2008 Dodge Ram starts till warm then shuts off like the key was turned off, after a minute will restart and then shut off again

most likely crank sensor on top or right side of transmission is bad. tap on sensor lightly to see if vehicle starts.

Truck choking like its fuel, timing or air issue

How long since over-all tune-up? Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, tbi fuel pressure 9--13 psi. 5 psi won't start and run a v8. In my opinion. I don't know liter size of engine?
Can you check applicable trouble codes? Your obd1, you should be able to check some codes, if your check engine light works. You use a jumper wire between the A & B terminals at your datalink connector, then turn the key just till the dash lites come on, then the mil starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes.
If you think ignition and or valve timing is off, check it. My info for ignition timing, just says to check the decal under the hood for specs.

What does a 1998 nissan maxima do when it needs a fuel pump it shuts off when I turn my heater or my air condition on

With a bad or worn fuel pump you would first experience lack of fuel at higher speeds.
If the engine is shutting off with the extra power demand of the air and heat then that indicates an electrical problem. Battery or alternator.

The truck shut off and will not start.

While you are driving the truck just shut down like you turned the key off ?
And now it will not start ?
Do the lights come on in the dash when you try to start it ?
Can you turn your headlights on ?
Is there a check engine light on in the dash. You need to have someone hook a scan tool up and retrieve any codes you may have.
Please let me know.

Engine won't shut off '91 Escort GT

Check the fuse box is not full of water.
Thet suffered from leaking windscreens, and it filled the fuse box.
If not, you are looking at a faulty ignition switch.

Will not start,I hear no fuel pump action when key is turned on.checked all fuses and fuel relays .And the dash gauges do not resgister with key on postion. Added fuel straight into throttle body with no...

hope your not have the same problem that i had. i had to replace the ecu. my gauges wouldnt read and my odometer just flash and that would be it and the gas light would come on even though it had a full tank. but there one thing that you could try. replace the auto shut down relay first before you go and replace the ecu. the auto shut down shuts the computer off when you turn the key off. and if thats not working right then the computer wouldnt come on and the truck will not start and the fuel pump will not come on and the spark plugs will not fire.
