Chevrolet S10 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Chevrolet S10

Chevrolet S10 Problems

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit may fail internally causing the ABS warning light to illuminate.

The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

I have a 2002 chevy S10 V6 vortex that will run when it wants to. Do not know what is wrong. It has new fuel pump, relay,battery but will run and cutoff and short time later will restart and maybe run 1/4 of a mile or it might decide to run 40 miles. It only does it when weather is real hot
