Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer

2 Answers

I just tuned up a 1992 s10 Blazer, I changed plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and fuel filter. Then after I had it running again I sprayed carb cleaner in the carb to clean it. It ran perfectly for 2 days and now it won't idle, it doesn't sound like it has a miss, but it idles up and down to the point that it dies. Anyone know what I might be missing. Thanks

Hi there,

just to make sure everything is operating fine, i would check the order of the wires on the cap and make sure they are in the right order so they are firin the right cylinder at the right time. if the miss you are having is as bad as it is, and letting it die, to the point it won't idle, i would start with that. Buy a little haynes manual from canadian tire, and follow the spark plug wire diagrams in the manual. Trace each wire individually, and relocate if necessary. try that to start. good luck.

1987 chevy s10 pick up sputters in low speed. i changed fuel filter, plugs and wires. I put octaine booster, and did feul and jet cleaner. im out of ideas.

converter clogged? does it run good at other than slow speeds?, carb or spray nozzles ? if Spray nozzles check using multimeter , find the test online for the right values , if carb , may need rebuilt, try adding a little more advance from distributor, may help with pick up.

Studdering engine when driving. Fuel Filter?

that would be a very good place to start, also spark plugs and spark plug wires can cause this. spray the plug wires with water a spray bottle ($1 stores have these), if the engine begings to run rough suspect the plug wires are defective..

Sounds like a vacuam leak, best thing to use is cold start spray, by spraying the vacuam lines with this you will notice a change in the idle wherever the leak is at.

My 1995 Gmc Jimmy has a miss in the engine?

It sounds like you need a tune up, Spark plugs and wire and cap and rotor, fuel filter and clean the EGR Valve. I'ld say the EGR valve is dirty with carbon which is common in the 95 JIMMY"S and BLAZER"S which also means the throttle body needs to be sprayed down with throttle body cleaner, not carb cleaner since it's to corrosive to the gasket on the throttle body. Keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have and good luck friend.

Motor runs very rough and has no power when going down the road?

Also check you Mass Air Flow Sensor. If they go bad or get dirty they run terrible. You can purchase MAF cleaner at most auto part stores. Give this a try, its cheap.
