1999 Chevrolet S10 QuestionsRefine by vehicle
the engine light is on, and truck is misfiring
The engine runs fine and I can get the truck moving by down shifting but it won't go over 15mph. Once the engine cools down it will run fine again. This is an intermittent fault
When the engine is cold the truck runs rough at highway speeds, but while accelerating runs alright. When the truck warms up it starts running fine. Also, i dont know if problems are related, but when it gets hot it is hard to crank until it cools down. It also has stalled for no apparent reason. But next day it crank right up. I assume after it cooled off. We have replaced fuel pump. The pressure is fine on it. New fuel filter. It has new plugs and wires. Any help would be appreciated.
wont start all lights come on really strong battery
when it is warm outside it starts right up and runs great. I have replaced alternator, battery, fuel filter, and had a tune-up.
10 months after re placing the clutch , pressure plate and thrust bearing , the gears shift is very sticky and sometimes stuck in 1st or R , could this be the slave cylinder that needs to be replaced and is that easy accessible?
Transmission fluid is leaking from line or lines running along underneath. Not sure where it is leaking from. What does it take to replace them?
Lights and radio work. Have replaced the battery and starter.
Truck was running fine the day before.
Have replaced the battery and the starter. Still get l click and does not start. Lights and radio work fine. What do I need to check?
Was having problems with lack of power on acceleration when truck died in traffic and would not start. No noises, vibrations, etc before it died. Am told that two ignition coils were bad and timing chain broke. Truck has 99,980 miles. Could not find any maintenance recommended for S-10s or milage life expectancy for the timing chains.
This is a 2.2 engine.

I will just be driving my truck, and all of a sudden the gauges, radio, and lights all just kind of turn off and back on in a split second. It happens when I change gears going up hill or getting onto the gas just a little bit. What could be causing this? The truck doesn't shut off, just the gauges, radio, and lights
1999 Chevrolet S-10, 4-cylinder 2.2-liter, rear wheel drive, manual transmission.
Pick-up running rough, loss of power, service engine light comes on, I drive to a well known national service center to get code read, they say code is P0300B which means misfire on cylinders #1 & #4, they bring out the coil packs they both have cracks, I tell them to replace both of them. I pay and leave for 32 mile drive home, life is great everything seems fine.
Wake up the next morning it’s doing the same thing. Drive 32 miles back to national service center, same code P0300B, the say they think it maybe a weak valve spring, burnt valve, or a bad exhaust valve, they say they can’t do that work their, tell me not to drive when service engine light is on, they say unburnt fuel drive can damage catalytic converter home 32 miles park pick-up.
I need an estimate of how much an alternator will run and the time it takes to install.
