Chevy s-10 4cyl starts only with pedal only to floor but sputters bad and wont accelerate.


On Chevrolet fuel injected vehicles holding the accelerator on the floor during cranking activates "clear flood mode " that turns the fuel injectors off the fact that it then starts tell me that the engine is flooded or the ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor or circuit is telling the ecm the wrong temp several other causes are blown fuel pressure regulator, low fuel pump pressure, low compression or faulty coil pack

Brake pedel gos to floor after bleeding


Be sure to follow the proper steps to bleed the brakes. Start with a full master cylinder. Have someone in the car pump the brake pedal 3 times and hold it down while you loosen the bleed screw to let the air out. The pedal will go to the floor and must be held down until you tighten the fitting back up. If the brake pedal is let up before you tighten the fitting, it will draw air back into the system. You may have to do this procedure several times on each wheel to get the air out of all 4 lines. Be sure not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid while you are bleeding the lines.

I can push the gas pedel to the floor but it is very sluggish. Inside right front tire is worn on the inside. What would cause this? Thank you Greg


The sluggish problem sounds like a coil or throttle position sensor. If the car idles well, but sputters when you hit the gas, look at the coil.
Your tire wear is an alignment problem. Since it is more on one side of the car, I suspect a ball joint (usually lower). Look at the tires from the front, if they don't look like they set vertical, change the ball joints and get an alignment.
