1984 S10 Blazer w/ 3.4l engine Won't Start!
New to the forum hi all! Just bought this 84 about 2 months ago. It's all original, no engine modifications, stock 2BL carb, electronic fuel pump, etc. It's been running great all along until this morning it wouldn't start up. It caught for a second, and chugged for about 5 seconds (sounded like it was running only a couple cylinders) then died and won't start at all now.
The last owner told me he had a shop do a 1998 3.4l engine swap. This sounds like a really common swap, and you can't even tell the difference by looking at the engine from what I've seen. I'm trying to find some specifications on this engine. I have reciepts for it, but it doesn't tell me what car the engine was out of. Anybody have a link to general specifications for the 3.4l motor, like spark plugs, ignition, timing, etc.?
I'm just trying to troubleshoot and it's hard without specs for the 3.4l. Main thing I need, is what spark plugs are used for this engine (heat range + gap)? What's the timing supposed to be set at? And what are the fluid capacities? I can't think of any other reason why it wouldn't start, anybody? Thanks for the help!
