    no the truck wont crank like the ignition switch isn't working

    ok, maybe you are just havig intermittent problems with the ignition switch . I would check that and replace it, it is an easy inexpensive fix. Your truck is old enough to begin to have that sort of issue. I dont believe it is an antitheft system thing.

1998 chevy s10 driving along and engine shut down.after sitting 10 min.it started but was rough.went 100.ft and it shut off again.sat for a while.it started and ran a couple miles like nothing was ever...


if it shuts off while driving and will not start back up for at least 10 minutes, then it may be the crank sensor doing this. is check engine light on! if so get it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner, auto-zone will scan for free. if light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all. good-day ! crank sensor timing will be out of sync. it controls timing and sends info to pcm.

2000 chevy surburban 1500 will crank but no start. waited one day then started. Ran for a week. Stopped again. Waited one day no start. Waited three days started again. Any suggestions??


more than likely your fuel pump went out. it's in the tank. you can try spraying carb cleaner in your throttle body and have someone crank it. spray small amount of carb cleaner beware of backfire. do not acclerate while cranking. if vehicle turns on its your fuel pump

1999 Chevy S10 cranks but wont start


A very common problem on the 99 S10 is a leaky fuel pressure regulator in the intake plenum.What happens is when the truck sits for a few hours or more the regulator leaks all of the fuel in the fuel injection system into the intake air plenum. This does 2 things, 1 it has no fuel pressure when starting and 2 it floods the air intake with raw fuel. Sometimes if you turn the key on wait 3 seconds then turn key off then turn key back on and just turn key to crank starter for a split second and wait 3 seconds.do this 3 times to repressurize fuel system then crank to start(you will hear fuel pump buzz each time you do this.also you may have leaky fuel injectors. Try to crank engine with the gas pedel to the floor. This will tell the computer to stop spraying fuel trhough the injectors and it will start. Joe ASE Master Tech
