i am trying to fix a 1991 chevy s10 pickup for a friend of mine its got the 2.8 v6 and a 5 speed transmission hes had it for about 5 years now has always ran great. within the last year it startede dying when you push in on the clutch but always started back up just fine and ran great while driving. then about a month ago it started dying when idel and sometimes when trying to aelcerte. ive done wires , plugs, disterber cap and roter on it i dident crose any of the wires as i have checked them them. i took the fuel pump out and cleaned the screen and its seems to be working properly. i noticed the wires going to the injectores are melted but are working properly. it seems that the moter got real hot at one time but the owner doesent rember ever over heating it. i checked for oil in the anterfreze and theres now presence of it and looked at the oll its clean to. im not shure were else to look? i was conserding the egr valve but thates my onley sugestone at the momunte. has eany one else had this problem if so please tell me on how to fix it or mady what i can maby try. thank you

no one has replyed to my dying problem, but the other day i was working on it and i was trying to start it now the fuel pump is out so im gonna replace it and see what that does, besides that im at a compleate lost. but i have one more ideah im gonna try after i get it started again i have a 94 subaru loyal that dies when i push in on the clutch and the problem with it is that there is a wire harness down by the clutch peadle that my foot touched every time i shifted witch cause it to get a short in it so im thanking maby it might have the same problem so you could try there on your truck and see what you find.

I've got the same problem on my 92 4.3Z. I thought it was a relay problem and changed it to no avail. It doesn't seem to be getting any signal from the ECM. If you find the Rx for yours let us know.
