Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Ignition problem - starting

My 2.2L S-10 just recently would not start. The starter has been replaced a couple of years ago. It is a manual transmission with the clutch switch, and that has always had a "lag" in it. Sometimes it does nothing but light up the dash lights, relays click, and fuel pumps, but no starter. Then occassionally when I slam my foot on the clutch it starts right up. Now its getting worse and taking 5 minutes or so.

I'm getting married in 2 weeks and can't afford nor don't have time to put it in the shop.

    Probably not the battery and alternator replaced last summer, but I will have them checked just in case.

Why won't my truck start?


Are you pulling the arm all the way back up. If not, the ignition is still on and you could be draining the battery. also check the alternator, they can short out on the inside. The solenoid is on the right fender well, do you have the single wire on the correct post

I just drove my car 10 minutes ago now when I went to start it up it would not start instead the (anti lock light) came so did the (security light ) and also the (service vehicle soon) light came on do...


the best way to start these questions is with year, make, model and engine size of the problem vehicle.

could be an ignition switch, ignition relay, bad starter, bad starter solenoid, to name a few.

if you have power (battery) but no crank, you will see all those lights by default.

Try tapping on the starter solenoid (hard) while cranking it.

Car won't turn over randomly


When it will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the clutch safety switch, and the key switch.

THER ARETWO COPPER CONACTS IN THE STARTER SOLENOID THAT ARE REPACABLE.IF YOU TAKE THE COVER OFF THE SOLENOID PART OF THE STARTER AND PULL OUT THE PLUNGER I THINK YOU WILL SEE THAT ONE OF THE CONTACTS IS BURNT SHORTER THAN THE OTHER CAUSING YOU TO JUST HEAR A CLICK WHEN YOU TURN THE KET TO START.ANY STARTER REPAIR SHOP SHOULD STOCK THESE PARTS FOR BETWEEN $10 & $20 .

Hi
Easiest test is to reconnect jumper cables and switch lights on, if these work and no noise AT ALL from starter, NO clicking at all then could be the jumper cables are too light like most are. Try 2 sets of jumper cables. Ensure that the cables are correclty applied, Red to Red and the black is the last connection to a good steel part on your engine, NOT the battery.Always ensure the car being used to jump from is running at all times while cables are connected.When it starts remove this one FIRST also.

Periodic no-start


You have worn contacts on the starter solenoid. This is a rather common problem. Attempting to start it 2-3 times moves the contact slightly, and then it starts, by making good contact. You have 2 options: 1) Replace the starter and 2) remove the starter, and have the contacts replaced by a starter rebuilding service. The 2nd option would be the cheapest rout, as opposed to a replacement starter. Hope this helps you out.
