Re: 2000 2.2L misfire NEED HELP!
Hi Iam new to this but I have a 2000 S10 2.2l and have a simular problem, the truck starts rough, hard start and once started will not stall on at idle unless accelerator pressed slightly, and check engine light is on and the code is p0300 which means multiple eng misfire, once I reset the code it drives fine but will not stay on idle, I have tied a wire to keep the throttle open ajar to keep the engine running but it is wasting lot of fuel, I have replaced:
New champion plugs
Head Gasket (when I bought the truck thermostat stuck and overheated)
O2 Sensor (Catalyic)
Brake Pads And Rotors
PLEASE HELP ANY ADVISE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!
I read on the forums and it seems to point towards Idle air control, but I have taken it out and turn the key on off and it seems to retract and extend fine, oh ya sometimes when the engine is warm it seems to idle fine with the wire removed? Funny I can't seem to fined the problem
