Question about 1995 Chevrolet S-10 CA Edition

1 Answer

I have a 1995 S10 w/4.3 TBI V-6 , was running real rough, like on 3 cylinders. I've seen them run on 4& 5 cylinders, so I know the difference. I installed a new distributor cap and rotor as the other one was extremely oxidized and corroded. When completed, engine wouldn't start, but checked one wire and was getting fire. Engine is getting fuel, The coil is good, I got a 3/8" arc. Wondering what else it could be. Going to change Plugs and wires tomorrow, but am not optimistic at this being the problem. It has 140,000 miles on it. Knowing that I am thinking it may be timing chain/gear. Any knowledgable help would be appreciated.

The dist rotor turns when you crank it? When you crank it, you should be able to see fuel injector spray pattern/tbi.
If you turn the crank by hand, the rotor responds, quickly?

SOURCE: 95 GMC Jimmy 4.3l W vin rough idle

My problem was solved when I repaired my 4 wd activation dash switch. The switch was contacting on 2WD & 4HI at the same time. The front differential activation is vacuum activated possibly creating a tug of war that didn't actually engage it but drained off vacuum from the engine? A theory at best but stumbbled across it because I knew the switch wasn't working properly I repaired it and low and behold rough idle disappeared and all is good for 3 weeks running.

Take off the distributor cap. Check the star wheel that is splined to the distributor shaft that the pick-up coil uses. Make sure this wheel is not loose on the distributor shaft. It is right above the pick-up. If it is loose, replace the distributor. This is a common problem. If it needs one, all the part stores stock the distributor.

SOURCE: cannot start changing pugs and wires

Sounds like you have the firing order right but your off on the #1 on the distributer. Every time you get an explosion coming from the carb its misfiring. Find the #1 on dist and continue with firing order

Well it sounds like you've started to do your "due diligence", but there are several things left out. Your problem could be many things. Something as minor as a vacuum hose left off, loose, or in the wrong place. And just because you changed the plugs and wires, don't mean you fixed your problem. Open your hood at night and see if you have any sparks "dancing" around. Another way to check this is to open your hood and spray a soapy water solution on your plug wires and look for sparks jumping around. If so replace your wires. You didn't mention what type of wires and plugs you used. I would reccommend NKG platnum plugs and a Bosch wire. I know this from experience,(the hard way teacher). It could even be the gas you are burning. I've owned a lot of Vettes, and I am the kind of guy who believes they should be driven. If not it's like having a beatiful wife and never taking her to bed.I know a lot of people who only drive them "once in awhile". Sitting in thier garage can cause many fuel problems, condensation, sludge in the carb, or filters etc. This can all lead to the problem you are describing.
Low speed miss- usually plugs
High speed miss- usually wires or valves
intermitten miss, fuel or electrical.
I hope I gave you some places to look to find your problem.

2000 Maxima runs rough and is misfiring on cylinder 6


hi , if you are sure the no. 6 cylinder is misfire then change the ignition coil if you are sure but if you are going to buy a new coil better buy all 6 coils and it will last longer if not after no.6 then no.5 or 4,3, until you change all of it .....for rough runs pls flush / change ATF every 20,000 km and change engine oil every 5,000 km , change the exhaust (o2) sensor it make a lot of different , resetting your throttle sensor and speed sensor , all the above must change it with nissan oem part and it not that expensive too.

You could have 1 of these 3 problems.

1. The injector on cylinder #5 is clogged and not injecting.
2. The Ignition coil on Cylinder #5 is not firing.
3. One of the exhaust valves on #5 is sticking due to carbon build up.

Hope one of these gets you closer to the solution.

It runs. but when I try to accelerate it fire thru the tbi


sounds like a firing order problem to me make sure all your spark plug wires. are going to the correct cylinder. If the coil hasnt been replaced it is numbered on the top telling you what cylinder that wire goes to. If I remember correctly cylinders 1-2-3 are in back and 4-5-6 are in front
