Question about 1997 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
I have a 97 S10 (4.3 L. X Vortech) with an annoying problem. I have installed a whole new exhaust system and O2 sensors before & after the Cat. Converter. I have replaced the fuel pump,filter, injector assy., TPS Sensor, MAP Sensor, Ignition Module, Distributor Cap & Rotor Button, New Plugs, Mass Airflow Sensor but the truck stalls out when you try to put it in passing gear. The idle gas pressure is between 50 & 60 psi. When you rev up the engine or go down the road in it and mash the pedal to the metal it drops the gas pressure to 10 - 20 psi. I thought the gas pressure should at least stay the same and if not increase when mashing the pedal. I have also replaced the computer with a salvage one with the same service # and it didn"t help. I have not found a mechanic yet in TN. that can fix it and I have about $1500.00 in parts and labor in it. I hope you guys are smart and can help me with this problem. LOL -Brad-
I read your problem.
I have some ideas about that.
You are right, The pressure should stay olmost the same.
But, I'm , involved in problem with aftermarket fuel pump.
I recomend A/C delco or Carter. fuel pump.
Check the Pressure regulator, that goes in the rail of the injectors. Inside of the intake, Some times is leaking.
Check the EGR valve, The carbon make the valve no close correctly, Take it out and check the pivot, they have to stay close.
Check the ground in all around of the car, speciallity the one on the frame rear , for the fuel pump.
If after all you still have the problem, Disconect the transmission seleniod connector, and put in drive, if the problem go out.
check for short cicuit in the wires and connector a transmission..
Is there more thing, but I hope this help on someting.
