Question about Chevrolet S 10

1 Answer

I have an 84 S-10 blazer with the 2.8l v-6. it has been running really rough, and I thought that it had to do with the choke and idle linkage. I do have white smoke coming out of the exhaust, however I have been going through a lot of water. and it looks like water is in with the oil

You either have a intake leak or a head gasket leak, dissassembly will be required for diagnosis

    in that case i suspect the intake gasket

    thank you

  • starrface Aug 22, 2010

    just a thought , with the intake off check the inner block for cracks near the water jackets, if so contact me

two things pop to mind with this truck, first these motors are notorious for having bad intake gaskets take a flashlight and look very carefully around the valley of your intake/block-head seal you'll possibly see either antifreeze leaking or a weird looking whitish or greenish sort of foam you can also use propane around the seal and look for obvious idle changes, I have done tons of these intakes in my shop, the other two things I would suspect if that looks fine are 02 sensors, or maf sensor.

99 Chrysler Town and Country idles high


Maybe a sticking choke or binding throttle linkage. Have you lifted the aircleaner cover and looked down carb opening? Choke stuck?
Could be a simple idle speed adjustment also. What rpm's do consider to be high. Maybe some carb cleaner down the barrels and throttle linkage could free it up. Again, it could be a simple idle adjustment depending on RPM's it's turning.

On an older vehicle it would be a choke problem. On this model It may be the idle control
air valve, which essentially controls the same function. You can look it up at rockauto.com

Excessive idle speed


The problem may also be the automatic choke. It could be stuck in fast idle. check all choke settings and linkages clean if nessesary. There is a separate fast idle adjustment screw on the choke linkage that controls engine speed while the engine is warming up. The tip of the screw rests against a cam that slowly rotates as the choke opens during engine warm up. Turn this screw counterclockwise to decrease the fast idle speed.
