Sounds like a symptom of a bad coil.

#6 of 316 Please Help!! 2000 S10 Won't start when hot
Feb 13, 2007 (4:25 am)
My struggle has been endless and I might curse Chevy forever if I don't figure this out...Please Help!!!....After my 2000 2.2L gets hot it will not start. Also, my check engine light is on and I believe that the last mechanic said that a history code reads that the truck was running lean. The performance is poor even when running (sputtering). A trusted mechanic could not find anything wrong. He simply said that it seems the engine is demanding too many amps to start. So I bought a higher cranking amp battery, but it didn't help. I have replaced the coil packs, wires, plugs, starter as well.
Recently, it has stopped starting completely. It clicks continuously when I turn the key but doesnt even try cranking anymore.
My God, if anyone can spare this poor arseface from my anguish I would be forever grateful.

Ihave a 99 Chevy s-10 and it has gone thru 2 starters and an interplanetary gear, so basically 3 starters in a years time. I've gone to a chevy dealer as well as a trusted family mechanic and neither have a clue.
When it's warm and dry out it runs pretty decent typically, when it's wet out, I can't get it to start hardly at all. And below 0 it refuses to do much of anything. ..It used to run great in weather up to -30. I've replaced the fuel pump, battery and fuel injector.
Some days it starts beautifully and some days it won't budge till I give it a bit of gas, but then I risk flooding hte engine. I'm at a complete loss. I'd trade it in, but I don't have the money for a monthly car payment.
I'm about to have them check the distributor cap and give it a tune up..but wanted to see if there was anything else I should have them look into.

Let see, distributor cap, must be 4.3, that's a start. How many miles, would only be guessing.
With this much information I would replace the spark plug wires, plugs, rotor, dist cap, a good tune up.

It's little wonder it goes through so many starters and starter bendix with all the cranking it has to do. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the ignition switch. Have you checked the input voltage to the coil?
