First off is it throwing any codes? If you go to any autozone they can plug it in and give you the codes free of charge. Now as far as it feeling like a misfire that can take quite a bit to diagnose. how many miles are on the vehicle? When was the last tune up? Have you checked the spark plugs to make sure they aren't black or oil covered or any other issues with them? First thing if it needs it I would do a tune up and then go from there. Once I have more information I can assist you further if you need it.
Thank you,
Lee

I would replace the spark plugs and plug wires. It sounds like you have a bad plug wire but replacing all of the plug wires and all the plugs should resolve your issue.

Engine Performance problem 1997 Chevy S-10 4


According to my book, the first code is the brake control rough road sensor, and P0302 is a cyllinder #2 misfire. Check the gap on your plug, and make sure the plug wire is on all the way. Give the boot an extra good push. Backfiring or misfiring under load is always caused by poor ignition. You may also have a faulty plug or wire.

After so many miles on the distributor,the oil seal can wear out. Oil and vapor can slowly enter the senor area and cause fail rotation/spot information to the computer ECU.

In order to inspect for potential oil leak inside the distributor,you must be pretty handy.

Pull the cap and rotor and inspect them for oil.

Look directly into the shaft of the distributor and see is there any loose plastic (from the cover) or metal particle.

This key is to keep it clean.

Use a can of compress air if you have one.


Put the cap and rotor back on. Make sure all the wires are secure and reset the code.

or disconnect,wait 2 minutes and reconnect battery cable.


If you see oil the you will need to locate and replace the rubber seal.

Oil and electronic part does not play well together,


Please keep me up to day by appending to this post.

Good luck.

I have a 94 chevy s-10 p\u it idols rough i


Checked and cleaner EGR?. Misses all the time or just at idle, going down road? Have you tried pulling one plug wire off cap or plug at a time to see if you can isolate which cylinder it is, then work from there?
Don't forget, Insulated pliers or similar to pull those wires.
