#74 of 400 S-10 With High Mileage
May 17, 2005 (9:50 am)
We are looking at purchasing a 1998 Chevy S-10, 5 speed, 4 cylinder. The vehicle that we have found has 170,000 miles on it but appears to be in excellent physical condition both inside and out. It drives beautifully and nothing is leaking and no electrical smell from the engine. The only negative factor is the mileage. Anyone out there driven an S-10 for this many miles? If so, did you have a lot of problems? We only plan to drive it in town, not too many miles per year. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
#75 of 400 97 S-10 4.3 missing problem
May 27, 2005 (4:13 pm)
Hello..I have a 97 S-10 4.3 that I bought new. It just turned over 60,000 miles. My problem is...I am getting a "random misfire code'" 0300 per OBD. It almost feels as if I bought some bad gas it stutters so much. I have replaced the distributor cap,rotor button, plug wires, plugs, coil,and coil modulator to no avail. The fuel pump is about a year old. Marathon admitted to some bad gas about a year ago that caused many people to have fuel gauge problems. I had the same prior to their annoucement so I replaced fuel pump and sender. I also have replaced the fuel filter and pcv valved as well. Geez reading this makes me want a new truck..LOL..I change the oil every 3000 miles and also add a can of fuel injector cleaner. The dealer repaired an oil leak a month ago (oil pan gasket) and I have had this miss ever since. No other OBD codes on this at all. The dealer as well as another shop could not find a thing. They claimed the fuel pressure was correct as well. But I still have this misfire code. Any ideas or help on this would be appreciated. Feel free to e-mail me with possible solutions. Thanks....

I recently had a valve job and replaced the heads myself. I also replaced the spark plugs and wires, cap/rotor, O2 sensor, Cat/muffler/pipes, and all filters. When I tried to start it, it backed fired and would not start. Could I have installed the Distributor 180 degrees off, or is their some other problem to blame? Can anyone help with this problem? Thanks!

#80 of 400 Gas Mileage 4.3

I just purchased a 2000 S10 4X4 with 4.3 automatic and the gas mileage is something else, I get about 60 miles to a 1/4 tank of gas in town. Anyone, is that normal or what, it has 93000 mi.
#81 of 400 FUEL PROBLEMS
Jun 12, 2005 (9:41 pm)
1994 S-10 Blazer with 159K + miles, 4.3L Vortec 4x2, began stalling and then shut off. Pass experience led to the replacement of CMFI and EGR valve (4 yrs ago), now have changed the CMFI again thinking to correct problem. Still runs rough where you have to step on gas to open throttle. Exhaust smells gas rich. GM code reader gives 22 and 34 error code. Sensors: MAP, TPS, MAF, etc...
Does anyone have any suggestions? Experienced this problem before themselves? Please help....
#82 of 400 Electrical problem - 87 S-10 Blazer 4x4
Jun 14, 2005 (1:13 pm)
Starting in Feb of this year, my right headlight went dim. I live in a mid-Atlantic state in the mtns where the state road crews love salt to melt the snow - so, lots of rust on the frame, etc. I figured the ground was bad on the headlight on that side, but I'm not so sure. About the same time this happened, my fan switch burned up. Switch has since been replaced. I've tried grounding headlight directly to battery, no luck. My 16 year old son (taking auto tech in school) says it's the multi-purpose switch on the column. I can't believe that this switch could screw up a headlight.
Anyone with suggestions, I'd appreciate some help.
