Question about 1987 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup

1 Answer

Won't start I parked my S10 blazer for a couple months, went to drive it and it hesitated a ccouple times then quit, now I cant get it running. Changed the ignition module and the coil, everything seems to be fine, I'm just not getting fire. I'm a new single mom of 4 and I really need help. Please I've checked everything I can think of. Any ideas?

Did you check to see if your getting spark? there could be a couple of reasons for your perticular problem. i need more info to pinpoint the problem. check to see if your pump relay kicks in. then get back to me ok. also lift the distributer cap and crank engine make sure the rotor is turning

93 Chev S-10.2.8l.v6.2w.gas.100,800 mils. excellent condition on May 25,2014 one block from home. In the process of turning around truck stopped and would not start. engine locked up. no warning no...


Unfortunately this seems to be a not unheard of problem with the 2.8. I'm NOT saying however, they are all a "ticking time bomb" ready to blow up.

Approx. 20 years ago my wife was driving our 1985 S10 Blazer and it simply quit. No warning, nothing.( I might add she was very good at keeping an eye on the gauges and she said everything was fine and it just quit running.)

I went to the rescue with a set off jumper cables and a tow strap. Tried jump starting and "no go". Tried to turn the engine over by hand and it was obviously stuck (siezed), so we pulled it home.

I bought a whole vehicle (1983 Camaro) with a rebuilt 2.8 V6 and swapped the engine into the Blazer and drove it for another 15 years with no problems.

I also had a 1989 S10 with the 2.8 V6 with well over 100,000 miles and a 1993 S10 with over 200,000 miles and they both ran fine the entire time I owned them.

I talked to a couple of mechanics about this and they both said the 2.8 will, WITHOUT warning, simply seize up. No ticking, no rattling, just seize.

So I guess the options are to either have the engine rebuilt, buy a rebuilt engine, find another used engine, or sell/scrap your truck.

When I bought the Camaro for the engine the body was kinda crusty. I bought the whole car for $500, sold the wheels for $100, and the rest of the car for $100. So I had $300 into a replacement engine. i did the engine swap myself so no labor charge.

Hope this helps.

only half way there if you have a tbi check the crank sensor/ cam sensor that is the first line of business on that truck if the crankshaft sensor fails the truck stops dead when you wait a few minutes the sensor re energizes and the truck will work again for a bit antiknock can cause similer problems but not while the truck is running

I have 94 s10 blazer 4.3 the prob started the


throttle position sensor, or check to make sure you have vacume going to the map sensor. Alot of times the outlet on the throttle body gets plugged and there is no vacume at the map--causes it to die. unplug the throttle position sensor and then rev it up and see if its better.

95 Blazer trans noise


Its best to just drive it until it quits, you got yourself an exceptional blazer, start messen with trans. now i think would be a mistake, take the mechanics advise, drive it, and enjoy it for as long as you can. Consider yourself luckey most people don't get half that milage before the trans. has to be replaced or rebuilt.

IT IS NOT GOING INTO NEUTRAL. IT HAS LOST THE DIRECT DRIVE CLUTCH PACK INTERNALLY. SOUNDS LIKE IT IS HIGH MILEAGE. IF SO AND YOU CHANGE THE FLUID IT CLEANS UP ALL THE VARNISH IN THE TRANNY AND THE END RESULT IS TRANNY MALFUNCTIONS DEPENDING ON WHAT KIND OF CARE IT HAS HAD IN THE PAST.
