    Hey guys, just joined. I don't actually have an S10 but my buddy does and I was helping him last weekend replacing his valve cover gaskets. We got all of that done, cleaned it up and reassembled everything. He went to start it and we got no power to the gauges/engine. We thought there was no...

    Hey y'all! One of the fuel injector connectors on top of my carburetor is burnt and I think that may be causing problems with my very rough idle, terrible fuel economy, and hard start. Has anyone had any experience with something like this in the past and/or any tips to test/replace them...

    I have a 1993 S10 with a 2.8L with a 5speed. It still runs and drives, but I also have a 1996 Z28 Camaro LT1 with 5 speed as well, not being used currently due to collision damage. I am wanting to put the LT1 with the tranny in the S10, what all would be required in order for this to be up and...

    Hey all, this is my first post so sorry if I get anything wrong. I've recently been working on my S10 and have had a problem with it where the check engine light is on, and when the engine revs, right after, it drops very low and almost dies, but then returns to normal idle. I've recently...

    I have bought my grandfathers 84 that's been sitting for about ten years. I plan on rebuilding the carb just to help it get running but I'm very much considering swapping the engine and trans. My question is what can I put in it that will still haul the same load or even more? My goal is to keep...

    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...

    I have a 1992 Chevy s10 2.8 I recently did headgaskets, replaced the distributor, plug wires, and plugs. The truck starts up and runs fine for about 5 minutes and then it starts to surge and is barely drive able but if I turn the key off for 10 seconds and start it back up it runs fine for...

    I have a 1988 s10 longbed. Never had the ses light come on before. Just driving along one day I get the ses light. (No change in power, drivability or throttle response) use a paper clip and jump the A and B terminals to check the codes. 24 and 34. I’ve figured 24 is the speed sensor, but what’s...

    So does anyone know if this part already exists please let me know because it will probably save a headache but I want to take a 3.4/3400 with the 2.8 intake bored on both sides to fit the head and a 4.3 tbi does this work in theory or will the 2.8 intake not bolt up to the 3400 heads anything...

    We parked the truck for about a week. Came back to the truck to try and start it up. It turns over slow and sounds weak and the injectors are working, feeding gas into the body but it doesn’t fire it just goes rururururur as dumb as my description may sound that’s all that I’m sure of. 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?
