  1. S10 / Sonoma
    I have a 96 s10 with the 2.2L and a 5 speed with 170K miles, my truck is idling rough and my mileage is slowly getting worse. Im averaging between 21 and 23 mpg around town, I used to get closer to 30 mpg. Also sometimes it doesnt want to start on the first try, but fires up on the second...
  2. 2.2L - 2nd gen 4-banging
    I have a 96 s10 2.2l that had a blown engine. Pulled that engine and replaced it with 99 2.2l out of a s10. I kept the intake from the 99 and did some wiring so that all the sensors would match up (all sensors are showing up working on the scanner). Changed the crank sensor and put in fuel lines...

    I've searched all over the net and also here to end up empty handed. I have a 2.2l 4 banger that I want to upgrade the injectors in for a decent price. Would these happen to be a straight up swap? Will I need to tune? Any better alternatives to get to 24#? Seipower/cavalier world was selling...
  7. Heating and Air Conditioning
    Hey all! I’m new here, and newly the owner of a 1994 S10 2.2L with the 5 speed std trans. I picked her up for a great price, runs and drives, at 234k miles.
