Hi, my name is Phil. I have a 2001 3rd door with a vortek 4.3 v6. I bought it a year ago
some one put a flow master muffler on. It sounds sweet.the other day while driving
with the air on (CALIF- HOT), Whoa let me back the truck up to make some sense.
I never filled my gas tank up. now I am driving further to work so i fill it.while running on free way w/air onI feel the motor kinda miss a beat.is this normal
at 95 to 100mph it shuts down governor?I am trying to explain this and ask questions at the same time. Ok last week driving w/air on truck don't want to shift out of 1st from stop. if i let off gas it shifts. bottom line is I think since I just started filling up the tank
i think the sediment in there got to the filter.(in the mean time service engine light comes on) I buy and install filter They say have it donedue to 60psi..
I did it my self . now it don't
t start like it should i have to put gas in carb or i'll run battery down.any body have this problem? sorry it took so long to explain

Hi chevy people!
As far as the L/S being luxury, thats wrong I have a 2000 S10 extended cab
L/S, its not luxury. You have to add some of those features you spoke of, like
leather, power locks, windows etc-. the option is there but your gonna pay out the
nose for it. Mine only came with AC. No other luxuries, but I am very happy with
my truck, has 51K and only thing i've had to do is replace throttle position sensor
which, in case you did not know is a common problem according to postings I see
on the problems and solutions site. Anyway mine is 2.2L, I have added cold air
induction, flowmaster exhaust, and got rid of the original rubberband (skinny)tires
and put on some low profile fatties, handles alot better! sounds great!
Anyway, love the site keep up the good work! and CHEVY'S ROCK!!!!

If posting 39 does'nt work, when you ran tank dry and added gas to it, you may
have stirred up some settiment in bottom of the tank. check you pickup valve in
the tank, which is not too hard. good luck!

first things first, you dont have a carb, youshould have fuel injection, second alot of newer vehicles do have a rev limiter, or governer. I have not
had my S10 to that speed, but my work truck(2001 ranger 4x4) does the same
thing around 92mph, called ford and they said normal(rev limiter). last but not
least, the hesitating and not shifting could be your throttle position sensor, your
tranny has to see the proper rpms etc- from the computer to shift properly, and
your hesitating and or surging is probably related to that, I just replaced my
TPS a week ago because I was having problems, truck would act like it was running out of gas(spit and sputter) it would throw a code(check engine light)but
would go away, then would be ok for another month or more, and would do it again
so I took it to my mechanic and he pulled code history and found it to be the TPS.
the one for my truck was only $41, they run anywhere from $35 to $70 depending. good luck Phil, hope this helps

when the clutch is not engaged and you hear a squeaking noise and it stops with just the touch of the clutch pedal it is generally caused by a dry clutch fork pivot ball stud, which causes metal to metal contact with the clutch fork. good luck

I need help!! I have a 95 chevy s-10 blazer 4.3 vortec engine. I just changed the fuel filter in Aug 05, fuel pump changed in 2001, new fuel line...new sending unit...
Problem is the vehicle stalls at a stop light and also takes several times to crank when starting...what could it be the fuel pump?

I just purchased a 1988 S-10. It has a 4-cylinder, five speed. The truck has some customizing, and I cannot determine if this was original or added later. There is a fiberglass visor over the front window and a cowl mounted just behind the cab. The truck has a special "Outlaw" decal on each side. I've researched te RPO codes, but haven't found anything related to the style package.
My 15-year-old and I are fixing this truck for him to drive. We're looking for a 1988 owner's manual, if anyone might know were we could find one.
Love this site!

I have owned chevy trucks my whole life. A couple things could be wrong...It may need some sort of a tune-up...such as spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap/rotor. Also your fuel injectors may need cleaning. Try some fuel injector cleaner from an auto parts store. Also could be a battery or other electrical problem but not likely.
#51 of 84 95 Chevy S10 Question.
Sep 20, 2005 (5:10 am)
Can anyone help me out here. I have a 95 Chevy S-10 pickup and I love it. It's going on 11 years old with about 150,000 miles on it. My question is my truck is parked outside all the time and whenever it rains or there is moisture in the air the next morning when I'm leaving for work it just hesitates until it warms up then it run perfectly. On dry days I never have the problem. Can anyone tell me what might make it hesitate when placed in drive? It clears up when the engine warms up. I'm just clueless? Could it be a sensor? What part would collect moisture and then hesitate when placed in drive? Any info would be great.
