I have a 96 s-10 with a 2.2 L motor. I just bought it and got it for a very cheap price. It runs very, very rough. The man I bought it from said he had a friend with a handheld scanner hook his scanner to it and he said it kept showing that ECM was getting weak. I bought it thinking that a ECM shouldn't be hard to find for it. I did find out right away that a 1996 is the only year that will interchange with it. I've been told now that when I find one it will have to be flashed. If I find one from another 1996 s-10 with a 2.2L, will it have to be flashed? I would think if it is an exact duplicate truck that it wouldn't. There are several 96 GM cars that will interchange also. If I get one from a salvage that interchanges will it have to be flashed? Is the dealer the only place to get them flashed? Please help, this is all new to me
have the same problem?
