Go back to basics and do a complete fuel system and compression test, if it hasn't had a full tune-up in a while you may consider that also.

Converter clogged? does it run good at other than slow speeds?, carb or spray nozzles ? if Spray nozzles check using multimeter , find the test online for the right values , if carb , may need rebuilt, try adding a little more advance from distributor, may help with pick up.

I got a 1987 chevy s10 pick up truck 2 wheel drive v6 2.8l my transmission is not passing 1st gear ?do you know if the kick cable or tv cable needs to be adjusted .


Just about all you can do is, with the engine off, from under the hood open the throttle all the way and check if the TV cable is tight. And check the fluid level, smell if its burnt or look if its brown.

Other causes could be,
Sticky governor
Sticking shift valve
Worn bands

Many years ago my mom's first 4 speed automatic was a 84 S10 2.8 2wd. She did not know it was a 4 speed and the indicator was broke so she counted the clicks to find drive. She was driving in the hills in over drive and all the downshifting was too much for it (should have driven in hills in 3rd gear). After that the transmission would not shift out of second gear.

This sounds llike weak feul pressure, the fuelpump may need replacing, the first thing to do is have the fuel pressure tested and if the pressure is low then have the pump replaced. the pump is located inside the fuel tank and the tank will need to be dropped to replace the pump, good luck ,

It does sound like a fuel problem, try running some jet cleaner through as you may have clogged jets. Sometimes, removal of air filter and placing the palm of your hand over the top of the carb's butterfly valve, will clear blocked jets when engine cranked over a couple of turns.
Also check the float valve is letting fuel in, could be stuck.
I hope this helps.

Sputtering and intermittent acceleration


sounds like your break booster is not working. you might have a major leak of vacume there. no vacume at booster and break pedel will be hard. that will also make it feel like it dosent have any power. chk. vacume filter in line going to booster see if pluged, if its got one. if not then i would say booster is bad.
