Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
Try changing the gas filter. fuel is tightly controlled by the onboard computer and restricted gas flow can cause the computer to make faulty decisions. also try cleaning the throttle plate with carb cleaner and a rag. last resort is to get a minimum air rate (MAR) adjustment at a repair shop. this involves adjusting the throttle angle screw on a clean throttle plate so the idle air control (IAC) valve operates in a predetermined range. if you mechanic doesn't follow that terminology, best to take it to the dealership or some other performance shop. it's a skilled adjustment. OR, just blindly turn the throttle angle screw in 1/2 to one full turn. NOTE: access to this screw may be blocked by a shiny chrome circular plate cover that is very thin and can be poked out with any pointy object.
