#326 of 423 94 S-10, many issues
Mar 05, 2009 (7:25 pm)
Hey guys i have a 1994 chevy s-10 LS extended cab with the CPI 4.3 and select trac 4X4 system. i have many issues with this truck that i need help/advice with.
1. How hard is it to replace/rebuild the CPI system, what do i need other than the spider injection kit?
2. Where can i get a new cable for my 4X4 system(from the shift lever to transfercase)
3. both my windshield washer and intermittent wiper settings have gone. the wipers only run on the "high" setting. they both went at the same time so would that be the switch that has become inoperable?(cruise control still works...)
4. How hard is it to replace the antennae cable as mine was burned apart due to the exhaust manifold.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as i need to fix this vehicle asap for my summer work.

Greetings! My dads 2001 S10 decided to take a mind of its own the other day. All of a sudden out of the blue it started to REV VERY HIGH! I can pretty much put the truck in first gear take my foot off the clutch and hold the brake and it wont stall out. I get three codes when I plug my reader into it. I get P0137 which is on O2 sensor and that is because he has an exhaust leak. I also get P0453 with is the EVAP and i also get P0507 which is Idle air controll system RPM higher than expected. Now between 507 & 453 i get lead back to the EVAP. Is this my problem? can anyone help me out please! We reciently changed out the fuel pump on it. and did plugs and wires. Thats about it.
And help is appreciated!
Thanks in advance

update From message #321, after all was said and done, I changed the actuator valve, the mechanic said that there was moisture in the air line and when it is cold the truck is in 2x4 even in 4x4 after it was fixed !
I then had to fix front Premium wheel bearings , after pricing 3 different suppliers Canadian Tire was the cheapest except for eBay, which by the way if you order O2 sensors off eBay make sure to ask if they are OEM, one's I bought had to be tampered with in order to fit properly, and no recourse because of the mistake, ask more questions...
all in all I forked out $686.00, truck runs perfect now YEH!!!!

I have a 92 4.3 TBI.... If it's the same hose as i had leaking then broke when i tried to remove it, then i went to hardware store and bought a fitting w/ a nipple and spliced it in. by the way i had to use an easy out/reverse drill bit to get the old zinc type fitting out of the manifold. Mine was a quick connect fitting hose too... Hope that helps.

Check into the cadilidace converter.(sorry for spelling weakness).I've had same thing happen and it was a blockage in the exhast.when engine has no presure from trans it can expel the exhast easier but when it is drivin it builds up and bleeds back into the engine causing it to run like crap,draging an anchor,lack of power.

Just picked up this S-10 guy said only problem with it is that it doesn't shut off, you have to pop the clutch then disconnect the battery cause the key won't turn anything off just on. I am thinking that its the ignition switch but the seller said its the linkage is outta wack. Just looking to see it anyone has any info they can lend me or at least point me in the right direction. Thanks Dan

The intake is the TBI setup I think; looks like a carburetor with two direct injectors. If the truck has been sitting the check engine light goes on, but once warmed up it turns off. In park or neutral it idles ok with a bit of a miss, but in gear with brake pedal pressure it idles very rough. The stored codes read MAP sensor, and ESC/Electronic Spark Control. The truck runs great when traveling at any speed, with no hesitation or stumbling. My friend let me install a new MAP Sensor to see if it would help solve the issue, it did not. I also replaced the spark plugs and seen a minor improvement when gapped at .35 (old plugs gapped at .47). Please let me know what logical issues this could be before I go on a spending spree of sensors and what not.
