Question about 2001 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

My chevy s10's radiator blew I replaced it... Drove about 8 miles home. Truck sat overnight. Drove about 10 miles the next day and it wouldn't start back up. The dealership says it's either a blow head gasket or engine. If that's the case why no water or oil drip? how did it drive the 18ish miles after radiator blew?

The head could be cracked also. check the oil if its milky then its the head gasket or head probably. if no then when its running is there alot white smoke that also could be a cracked head or head gasket.the first is antifreeze leeking into the oil system usually cracked head. the second is antifreeze leeeking into the cylinder
so no external leek

1999 Chevy S10 4.3L starting Problem... My truck doesn't start after it has sat for a while, usually after it sits overnight. Typically it starts after a little starting fluid.


It sounds like the fuel drainback valve is allowing fuel pressure to bleed off overnight. In some cases you can add an external one, in others a new fuel pump is required to be installed, check with your favorite mechanic.

Sounds like he might have pinched some wires. Now for the worse news, the transmission out of a 1997 'WILL' not work properly in a 1993, one is a PWM (97) unit the other is not(93).

1998 Chev K1500 4WD, new rebuilt engine w/6000 miles, new radiator, new starter, 1 year battery. After truck sat for about a month, would not turn over for 6 or 8 trys, then started. Drove for a day w/ no...


You will need to check fuel pressure first off. It sounds like the fuel system is bleeding off after you shut the truck off. The most common points of bleed off is the fuel pump and the fuel pressure regulator.
Also with all of the time it has sat you may need to run all of the gas you have out of it and fill it up with freash fuel!

First check all wires for any thing loose.
The muffler blowing up leads me to think the engine is so far out of time the PCM cant correct it.

REally you need to get it to a good mechanic.

Sounds as if the head gasket is leaking compression pressures into the cooling system. It seems that this problem has just occurred recently. This can be checked at your rad shop. They have a tool that uses a chemical solution that changes color if there is any engine gases present in the coolant.
