You will need a code reader/eraser or scan tool. You can borrow one from some auto parts stores like the AutoZone. Read the codes to find out what the problem is before you erase them. If the problem is persistent, the light will come back on anyway. A code reader is a must for any car owner. A cheap one is $35, which will give you the code # so you can look it up in a list of codes. A little more money, and you can get one that has the code description listed on the LCD. A scan tool can perform tests on the car. I got one for $110 at Harbor Freight, and it can scan for almost anything (Ihave a VW). On your Chevy it would work even better. It even checks your SMOG readiness, and tells you what part is out by showing you the acual live readings and the range it should be in for tolerances. And of course, it can erase codes, which is why the engine light is on.
The slot for the scan tool is under the steering wheel. Just feel around and you will find it. Some cars will have a small cover to protect it.

03 chevy s10 4.3 vortec. runs fine until warmed up. then loses power. fuel pressure reads 53 at idle and 60 reved up. dropped exhaust and does the same thing, so think that rules out the cat. s


The older model vortec engines needed more fuel pressure than 60psi to run. You might want to verify the min amount for your model. Have you replaced the fuel filter recently ? Is the check engine light coming on ?

That sounds like a vacuum problem due to something in your vac system went bad or got plugged or even unplugged. I would start there.

Check engine light on chevy s10 pick up will come


Have you had to add oil? The fact that it comes on going up hill would suggest it's the oil level.
