    Anybody ever replace the fuel line and return line starting from the carburetor and down and back? I have a ‘90 s10 4.3l tbi, I’ve been looking into braided fuel lines that are -6an PTFE and everything but I want someone’s opinion on what they have done or know can be done. Any links would be...

    Hello. Ive got a 1990 s10 4.3l tbi I’m slowly working on and one of the feed lines attached to the back of the carb was severed, i think someone bent it when removing the carburetor, it runs down and the rubber end slides over the other fuel line that goes into the frame. Following so far? so...

    I know this sounds dumb, but I don't know how many fuel injectors to order. I have a 1992 S10 with the 2.5L 4cyl RWD 5-speed, ext. cab. I know there's not 4 because it has TBI but after trying to find how many, I can't find anything for this specific year whether it has a single injector or...

    Have a 2000 S-10 4 wheel drive auto with the 4.3 that is having acceleration problems when cold. 110,000 miles. What I mean by acceleration problems, is that when it is cold and until it fully warms up it will occasionally stumble and generally be very doggy especially going up a hill or putting...

    Hey guys I was wondering if there was a way to siphon out gas/water from the tank? Just bought a 99’ s10 and the guy said it sat for an Year so that makes me believe there’s water in the tank. The fuel gauge isn’t working properly so that’s also making me think that. I don’t want the engine to...

    2000 S-10 Zr2 4.3 V6. Engine bogs down at highway speeds (60-70 mph) usually when getting on the on ramp. Engine act like it goes into a safe mode, where there is no power (like misfire) then after a few seconds it corrected and then runs OK but at a higher RPM. Other than that truck runs fine...

    93 S10 cranks but doesnt start. The fuel pump runs but the engine isnt getting gas. I took the fuel pump out, replaced a bad strainer, and siphoned all the bad gas and trash at the botton of the fuel tank. I put new gas and now it still wont start. What should i do?

    I have a 2002 Extended Cab Xtreme (see "PatsBlueXtreme" in the Showcase) and I just put a hidden hitch on it behind the roll pan and license plate. That meant I had to take out the spare tire and the tire lift as the hitch will not allow the tire to fit in the spot anymore. I am thinking of...
