Question about 1995 Chevrolet S-10 CA Edition

1995 Chevy S-10

The truck's motor will die at any given time with no warning whatsoever. It will usually start again within minutes but it may die several more times before we reach our destination. Sometimes it may die only one time or may not die at all during a trip from 10 to 200 miles. The truck has been tuned recently and still the problem is not resolved. Help!!!

I have a 94 s10 that had the same symptoms. Troubleshooting eventually led me to the fuel tank where I found the high pressure line between the fuel pickup and the pump had a crack. (If you replace you must use high pressure line, standard fuel tube will not hold up) This explained why sometimes it held pressure, started and ran ok, then other times it would not. Easiest way to check is pull the bed to get top access to the tank. Good luck.

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

1999 CHEVY LUNINA WON'T START BATTERY AND


Check the dash once you turn the key to the run position the passlock runs a security check using a set resistance value through the chip in the key. If the security light begins to flash the reading it received was incorrect or it didn't get a reading at all. You can try reseting the value it is looking for by turning the key to start then releasing it. After 10 minutes turn it off then cycle it start again leaving it in on for 10 minutes then back to off then one more time. After the third cycle has completed for a total of 30 minutes. You should be able to turn the key on and start the vehicle. If the light continues to flash their is a problem with the chip in the key or the connections within the ignition its self. Both are common but a Pass Lock Relearn as described above will usually adapt to the poor connection values. Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 chevy blazer it died yesterday at a 4 way stop the engine just stopped.No engine lights or anything came on.Got it out of the road and after sitting for about 20 minutes I got it to start but...


Check for fuel pressure and check for spark during the no start condition. Also check the crank sensor, it is located behind the crank pulley mounted in the engine block on the 4.3 L engine
I hope this helps.

If the motor gets hot and cuts off and will not start for a period of time the problem would be the crank sensor. The sudden cut off and starting right back up can be due to dirty battery cable connections. Remove them from battery and clean all three of them with a wire brush and replace both bolts.

1995 f-150 dies while driving


Check for a plugged fuel filter. If that is OK, then it is probably a bad fuel pump. Once it cools down. then it starts to work again.

1995 BMW 540I starts well cold, then dies out after getting to normal operating temperature. Usually will not restart until cools for a long time..cranks but won't start....Jack


I would check the fuel pressure just after starting and again after 10-15 minutes (or before it dies). Sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Could be a stuffed up filter, or the fuel pump could be dying. I had a Volkswagen some years ago and it had two fuel pumps, a large one up in the engine bay and a small "helper" in the gas tank. The one in the gas tank was bad but the bigone was fine, so I'd start the car normally, drive for about 20 minutes, then the car would die and not want to start again until it had cooled off. Maybe you have the same setup.

scrappy I hope you fixed your problemssince last post. Sorry to be gone for soooo long. Have you check your fuel tank? I had an old 1963 chevy that over the coarse of years that filled the bottom of the tank with dirt and what have you. It would run for 15-20 minutes and shut off. After it sat for about 10 minutes it would settle back to the bottom and I could drive again for 10=15 minutes. It drove me crazyuntil I had a radiator shop vat the fuel tank. Let me know if you fixed the problem....it has been a month since I last logged on....sorry.
