Question about 2002 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

Fuel Gage stuck on full

My 02' S-10 (4X4, crew cab) has 128,000 miles on it. I just purchased it on 4-19-10. I went over some dirt roads that were bumpy, I was going an apropriate speed. Once I got to the pavement, I noticed the fuel Gage read over the F. It only goes down when I power off. What happened? Electrical issues? Bad ground cable?

My 2001 GMC LB7,abruptly shut off...Will crank,but will not start

Check the oil first, the low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low. Miles on this truck warrant a new fuel pump and fuel filter. GM fuel pumps, don't handle Methenol Fuel very well.(water).

My service engine soon light came on and my gas gage dropped below empty and gas light came on. I stopped and filled up and the gas light stayed on for another 50 miles. The service engine light is still...

It would be nice to know why the service engine light came on and is still on. An auto mechanic can read the code for you, or a dealer, or some parts stores will sell a device to read the code that caused the light to come on.

Obviously, 1. the air filter, Don't clean it, replace it if it has not be replaced lately.
2. The fuel injectors, have them cleaned and calibrated.
3. Fuel pressure in the fuel rails, have it tested for too high pressure
4. Air flow sensor...test
5. Download and analize fault codes from ECM.
Other engine sensors such as the O2 sensors may be involved and should show up in the OBD (diagnostics)

2003 S-10 4.3 crew cab, is hard to start only in

although your fuel pump is running it might not have the correct pressure so what you need to do is run a fuel pressure test by connecting a pressure gage at the valve on top of the engine take the black screw cap and connect the fuel gage turn the key w/out starting the vehicle and read the pressure it hould drop only about 1 psi but no more than that if it drops more than that you need to buy a fuel pump.
