Hello everyone. I recently just picked up a 96 S10 With the 2.2 and a 5 speed. The current issue its having is it seems like it has no fuel at the intake. After sitting for a day or to it will start if you crank it, but only for about two seconds then it dies and wont restart. It WILL run if you spray starting fluid in there. Ive checked the spark and its good, ive used the fuel pump test connector to check that its running and it does. I can even hear fuel pushing up to the front of the vehicle when i have the pump engaged. There's no kinks in the line and the fuel filter is brand new. I don't have a pressure tester or the ability to get one at the moment. Im not an expert with this engine, first time working on one to be honest. So im trying to get help from the experts and see if there are any common issues i need to start with, or things to look out for. Im of the mind that maybe i have a weak fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator, but i wanted second opinions before tearing into it. Thanks for any advice in advance!
