CHEVROLET S-10 ENGINE PROBLEM
2000 Chevrolet S-10 • 23,600 miles
My engine stopped running at 70 mph. Starter wont turn over. still have lights etc on dash.
Does the motor even turn by hand????
Engine does turn over with starter. does not fire. Fuel? Timing chain?
Once again, does it turn by hand??? trying to determine if the engine has seized
Yes It turns by hand
The fact that it shut off at 70 indicates loss of fuel pressure or spark. you say it wont crank??? is the battery fully charged???
My mistake. I fully sharged the battery and it does crank but does not fire
Check fuel pressure and spark
My mechanic says timing chain. Is that fixable or are valves and pistons possibly damaged
