Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

2000 chevy s10 runs for a few minutes then dies. Had fuel pump, fuel pump relay and fuel filter replaced at shop but the thing will still not run properly. You have to keep your foot on gas to keep it from dying so the idle has to be above 1500 rpms to stay running. If you let foot off gas it dies. So you have to keep foot on gas pedal and one on brake to drive it. Someone help me I am about to run the thing off a bridge

    Sounds like an air leak. Look for any leaking/disconnected pipes coming out of the engine between the throttle and head since extra air introduced in this part of the engine will do what you describe.

    They told me that it was a electrical short in the car and that is why the truck keeps on dying. Told me to take to electrical shop so the can find the short? Not sure if this is the case or if they are full of it. I have brand new parts and none working car.

I doubt very much this is electrical. Rather do a visual inspection for vacuum pipes that are leaking or have become dislodged especially around the throttle body(Where the throttle cable is connected to) and plenumb chamber. If you find a place that looks like a pipe needs to be connected there, hold it closed with your finger and see if the revs pick up slightly. If it does then look for the pipe that needs to go there. You shouldnt have any pipes hanging loose around the engine bay. If you dont find anything on the engine itself follow every little pipe to where it goes/connects to and do the same. This costs nothing and a mechanic will charge you an hours' worth of labour for doing the same. The engine's fuel/air mixture is being leaned out somewhere. You can perhaps have the CO content tested to confirm, as this is relatively inexpensive.

Try replacing the throttle position sensor. I had the same problem in my truck. It would start and run for a bit but as soon as you let off of the pedal, it would die. Try it and see if it works.

'99 chevy caviler fires right up, but then dies after started, like out of gas. Fuel relay sensor? fuel filter? fuel pump?


If it is fuel injected it will get enough fuel to start but not stay running. I had the same problem with my S10. Turns out the hose that went on to the end of the fuel pump was roted. pull the sending unit and check the hose connections to the pump and the sending unit. If problem presists replace filter first the pump.

Chevy Trucks, Blazers, S10 pickup and the like will vapor lock ecspecially the 2000 models. Do not tighten the gas cap past 1 click. There is a tube that runs from the top of the tank down and this gets hot and collapses or burns in half. We just bought a reinforced rubber tube cut it to lengh and use it instead of part and it's worked grat for 2 years so far.
