Okay disconnect the heater hoses from the engine. Get a water hose and try to run water through the lines. In other words cram one of the heater hoses into the water hose. See how much water and junk comes out the other disconnected line. Many times Chevy heater cores plug up. If the flushing shows good water flow and or no junk coming out then.
Check the heater hoses, I have not had any problems with my truck but I had a camaro that did the exact same thing and found that one of the heater hoses would collapse as it got hot.
Now I dont know if your model is equipped with this or not, but while your following the lines see it there is a heater control valve in line.

There is an electronis switch on your transfer case that goes bad, and is a fairly common problem with this type (electronic) 4wd.

I'm sorry, but this was the original type of Antilock Brake systems invented by the General. THEY SUCK! your problem is most likely your wheel speed sensors. In case you dont know what these look like, jack one side of your car up and remove the wheel. look for the brake hose. you should also see a smaller, smooth hose, and that is your wheel speed sensor. i would replace both sides, and i believe theses parts are only available from GM.

When was the last time your engine got a good tune-up? check your plugs, wires, cap, rotor, air and fuel filter. also, try to adjust your timing. If you cannot see the timing marks on your crank pulley, try setting it 4 degrees before top dead center. if you adjust your timing, and it runs well for a while, but repeats itself like bfore, check your timing chain.

I had the same problem with my '89 and my boss said for me to check the timing chain. But, i got into an accident before i got to replace it, and it was totaled, so have someone check the chain for you.
#277 of 398 Bogged Down Truck
Feb 02, 2006 (4:21 pm)
I have a 1985 V6 S10 with 75,000 miles on it. Lately its been bogging down really bad in the morning. I go out and start the truck fairly easily, and it will run fine for 2 to 3 miles, but then it starts to bog down. It will only go 5 or 6 mph. The weird thing is that when i go to drive it home 6 hours later, it runs perfectly fine. At first i thought it was the choke sticking, so i put a manual choke on. That did not help. I also changed the plugs, wires, fuel filter, and had an oil change. None of this helped. Could someone please give me some pointers.

Does anyone know where I can find the ABS fuse in the fuse box. What's it called? or maybe it's located somewhere else.
Thanks in advance

#281 of 398 93 blazer cold start question
Feb 17, 2006 (8:23 pm)
Hi, I have a 93 s10 4x4 blazer with 44k miles, and it doesnt go to high idle when first started on cold days, it just idles like it has been warmed up. It will also smoke a little, but mostly when it's a little warmer outside, it also takes longer to start the warmer it is, any ideas?
