Question about 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

1987 s10 pickup Service engine

After the service engine soon light came on, I changed spark plugs, wires, air filter, fuel filter and had a diagnostic test done. They said that it was something about an error 74.
Today the truck started to backfire and stall.
Is the brain box gone or is it a bad cylinder?

Slow down, don't start tearing down the engine just yet. Error 74 is: P0074 Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit Intermittent.

Why would my1999 s10 start missing out going down the road ?


Check fuel pressure to see if a fueling problem. Some stores rent or loan fuel pressure gauges. Check for possible trouble codes that may indicate a problem.

Gas, air, spark, and compression- one of them is wrong or missing for the engine to misfire.

My cylinder is misfiring on my 2000 gmc jimmy


replace fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap /rotor, if you have one. new oil with your filter ? just thought I'd ask, have a auto parts store pull code to see why your service engine soon light is on. this will tell you what sensor needs replaced, I'll bet its the oxygen sensor !

My service engine soon light is on in my 1988 s10 pickup 5 speed with an inline 4 I have replaced the TPS, MAP sensor, spark plugs, fuel filter it was idleing to low then it was idleing high from work then...


you need to have the fault code pulled to see what is acting up. you can throw alot of time and money into a vehicle by swapping parts. from the problem you desribed it sounds as if the o2 sensor is slow to switch and cuasing fuel control problems.

Service Engine soon light, codes P0301 and P0171, replace plugs


Hi,, Well the service engine light comes on when your car needs to be tuned up, this happens when the timing belt needs changing or nearing its life span. Basically it involves changing the belt (optionally >) engine oil, transmission fluid, radiator coolant, fuel injection and throttle body servicing, changing gas filter, air filter etc. Its to prevent damages to your car. After its serviced the mechanic will need to clear all error codes and reset the cars computer. Clearing the error codes is done with a diagnostic tool, to reset the cars computer , remove the negative battery pole and press the brak as far as it will go, wait 60 second release and reconnect the battery pole. Some vehicles may need to be caliberated if it has an electronic throttle body system
