    S10 / S15
    Hi people! Just picked up my first S15, 1985 4x4, 2.8 V6, 5 Spd manual with 42,000 original miles. I’m learning and reading a lot but here’s my question. This 2.8 is a sluggish dog in my opinion. I know it needs a tune-up but other then that runs real good. My first thought is this needs a...

Not an...

    I’ve inherited a 1982 Chevy s10 2.8 v6. The last time it ran was about 2012-2014 and has been sitting for a while. They main body and interior are in great shape as well as the tires too. I charged up the battery and it doesn’t start up what should I do?
