1993 Chevy S-10 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 127000 miles
Hi, I've got an s-10 4.3 V6 TBI (vin. Z). I recently acquired this truck and in all the reference material I have read it says it should have a 21 gallon fuel tank. When the fuel gauge reaches empty and I fill it up, I can only put about 16 1/2 gallons in. I drove it once, on empty, for about 15 miles and she died on me. So is there 5 gallons of (in a way) unusable gas in that tank or could I have some other problem? I'm using the original fuel sending equipment (except in-line fuel filter of course) and I have no idea when the injection system has been last tuned-up. Could my books be wrong and possibly only the 4x4s of this series have the larger fuel tank holding 21 gal. Since that number seems high to me for this size truck on a 4x2. I know Hayes and Chilton sometimes get the wrong info, especially when a vehicle series has many different engine sizes and specs. Thanks a lot for your help!
have the same problem?
