Engine Mechanical problem
1983 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 242000 miles
Hi I recently got this truck and I was driving it for about 2 days before it choked out and died. From what I know now is the carb is a rebuilt ( not me who did it) and there was some vacuum issues that I already fixed, hoses replaced/ tighted. I thought it could be the fuel pump or filter, so I replaced the filter and tested the pump but the pump works good, however I think im going to put a new one in tommorow because it could be faulty. But it seems to still leave the problem of issues with the choke portion of the carb acting funny. The owner before me had the carb running really lean and im still playing with the adjustments on mix. I got advise that it could be still vacuum issues but there is so many possibilites its crazy. As it stands, three days ago I could drive the truck for about 5-10 min and it would choke out and giving it revs only delayed the stall. And when its hot I cant start it right away. Just today though the problem has got alot worse, barely starts and wont idle for long before dying. Is something clogged dirty? Where do I start?
have the same problem?
