Question about 2000 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

No Power at all.

I just replaced the fuel pump 600 miles ago. On the interstate only i would be running 75-80 mph and all of a sudden I would lose rpm and if i put the petal to the floor nothing would happen. I could only ease into the throttle and get up to speed. If I turn the truck off and then back on its fine for 15-20 min and then the problem returns. That was last night. This morning i go out side to go to work. Start the truck, starts just fine out it into reverse truck dies. Again, truck dies. I put the truck in Nuetral and start I had to give it gas to run, then brought it to idel put into reverse truck died and now no power anywhere. No dash light no power locks nothing? Im so lost

General advice:After warming up track the problem:sparkplugs (even new can have the ceramic parts broken/cracked /wiring (after warming up the isolation get's soft,can loose spark power)/ignition coil(s) (gets hot,stop runnig),running reach,fuel pump/fuel pump relay.Best guess:fuel pump mallfunction (low pressure) related,fuel filter cloged/water in the fuel/fuel line cloged/chipped. Cheers,hope u figure it out,let the people know.

I have a 96 Camaro Z28,it hesitate and stalls from time to time,it may go 3 or 4 days before it does it again.When it stalls it would run bad the rpm would fluctuate up and down just sitting part while...

How about water or dirt in the gas? It sounds like when the tank gets low this happens, so you need to check the tank out and make sure you are not getting watered down gas. This is very common and would cause the symptoms you are describing. I have a 98 Z28, so let me know if there is anything more I can help you with.

I have a 1999 F-150 5.4 Lariat 4X4. When declerating, when I get between 45-55 mph it loses power or fuel then picks back up when applying the pedal. Could this be a throttle sensor problem or fuel pump...

I hope you get some additional comments for this. I have the identical truck. Could be a vacuum problem as the vacuum brake booster is connected to the other systems through vacuum sensors. Most of things electric would throw a code.

Sometimes when a fuel pump is changed you have pressure adjustments to make. Fuel pressure is also controlled by the crankshaft sensor which sets pressure based on reading RPM.

The 1999 model has a defect in the fuel filler tube going into the rubber filler hose under the truck. Eventually it will throw a emissions code. Could be it is not bad enough to throw a code yet, but still leaking.

Thinking about the problem at 55mph there is a steady vacuum until you hit the brake pedal booster. Then vacuum changes and it makes things worse. A vacuum gauge could show activity.

Ford 460 loses power then dies. Starts back up. Idles fine.

It sounds like you might have a clogged catalatic converter on the exhaust system.

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.

first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer

1995 k2500 Chevy truck engine runs rough some of the time?

I had a similar problem @105k. I had changed the fuel filter but it was still sending all kinds of codes that were related to 2 problems. Long story short, the main problem was a bad trigger assembly in the distributor (rough running) and the other was a loose engine to body ground (engine code issue). Good luck, this worked for me, now 171k.

Engine sputtering

I would change your fuel filter, if that doesn't do it check your fuel pressure with a gauge at your schrader this is a pretty simple test if you are not getting enough pressure, then test your fuel pressure regulator, if it's bad replace it. if it's good got to your fuel pump, I am assuming you don't have or even know what a DSO is, so if you traced it to a fuel pump, take it to an auto technican and ask them to do a fuel current ramping test and this will tell you your fuel pump rpm's most of todays properly operating fuel pumps spin from at least 4000 rpm to 6500 rpm. happy motoring!
