    If I keep pumping the gas peddle while driving it doesnt do it. Does that still sound like it could be the timing?

  • Woody9779 Nov 16, 2009

    It idles perfect. No issues when its idling. Its during take off and while driving that it does it. Thanks for your advice. I will check the timing just to make sure and the plugs. I'll let you if that helps. Any other ideas, please let me know. Thanks again.

Check your timing. It sounds like it is off maybe enough that the motor jumped her time. Hope this helps.

    Not so much. Will pumping the gas at idle stop it as well? If it does I'd be more inclined to think your truck is "loading up" with fuel and dumping it through the engine. That would suggest a problem in your fuel delivery system, not being able to regulate the flow of fuel most likely caused by a piece of dirt.

    Pop the distributor cap off and check it and the rotor for pitting and wear, black streaks. They should have some white marks from the firing but other than that they should be replaced. Also try pulling the plug wires one at a time when the engine is running to see if that makes a difference. Use insulated pliers or wear leather gloves when you do this.If there is one or two that don't make it worse then a new set of plugs and wires is in order. Hope this helps a little more.

Runs rich and is hard to start has 4.3

Check the fuel pump relay located inside the glove box .If its bad the fuel pump will still get power through the oil pressure sending unit its a safety back up system but will make a long cranking condution. Also check your fuel filter located under the drivers door on the frame rail inline . And i dough its running rich .Pull your spark plugs you have to go in from under the wheel wells for most .If they look white then its running lean .I would check the fuel filter before it cooks the fuel pump first. Spark plugs tell a story if you can read them . And how is your exhust system thats a nother big factor on how the engine performs extremaly imporant on the 4.3 vortec

Check for a fuel filter problem..... sometimes the newer fuel pump can **** up debri from the bottom of fuel tanks that the old pump did not have the flow to **** up.

Do a compression test on all of your cylinders when it is cold. Backfiring is a sign of a worn valve seat allowing mixed fuel and air (lit by spark) to be forced back into the intake. You will probably see compression loss on one or more cylinders.

Also... there is a chance that the EGR valve is not totally seated when the engine is cold with just a small blow by. The EGR valve seats coke up over time with black gunk.

Could be a fuel issue, Start by changing the fuel filter, if that doesnt work you might want to drop the gas tank and check the strainer on the fuel pump and make sure the tank is clean.

I have Chevy s-10 4.3 vortec, replace tank fuel

I'd put more fuel in it and see what happens. But I'm going to guess that you are having a problem with your injector. These cpi systems are notorisous(<spelling?) for problems.
